Smashing new video of Virtua Tennis 3


Our buddies at Gamertag Radio got their eager mitts on this new gameplay video from Virtua Tennis 3. Having watched the video, we can safely say that it's definitely tennis. Given the series' history, VT3 will likely be a pretty good tennis game, too. We're glad the 360 allows for custom soundtracks though, because the music sounds like it was ripped directly from the Sonic Adventure series. Of course, the big question is whether or not Virtua Tennis 3 can compete with the likes of Top Spin. We'll find out soon enough when the game releases in March. In the meantime, watch the video and tell us what you think.

Graphically it looks better than top spin. But the players look like they are running in fast forward.

I agree but thats because of the frame rate, But lets hope the vid is to blame and not the game it self.
BTW wasn't top spin a rip off from VT???
ofcours TS2 was a bit different (better).

But they can make up for it with VT3...

Are they on speed? Either that or they haven't quite worked out the animation speed yet, i suppose we can only hope it's fixed by release.

What!!!! No way that is the hole deal with VT and TS, then everybody knows you r hitting it really fast. And not every one has a hd tv so if you r hitting fast you won't see the ball.

Is this game for those of us who just have Windows XP Pro? I haven't purchased and X-Box yet. If it isn't for XP Pro can you all suggest an excellent game that will play on this operating sistern?

Merci
