    Prince,
    Have you played any others? or is that the only one, becuase I haven't seen any good reviews of it.

    Well I like it because its nice and challenging because there is timing involved with it. There is also Virtua Tennis and Tennes 2k2 which is basically Virtua tennis 2 those are also good games. They are fun...Maybe a good question would be what kind of person are you giving it to?

    I'm going to give it to my cousin who is about 36. He plays tennis but his kids don't. The game is more for him though.

    TopSpin on Xbox is the best overall. Virtua Tennis 2 (tennis 2k2) is the best on PS2. I have both games, love them a lot and am 30 years old, so fairly close to your cousin's age.

    I'm going to go with Smash Court Tennis 2, as the 2K2 is harder to find and I need it by Monday. Thanks for the replies.

    Yah I bought my 2k2 used really hard to find game. Smash Pro is a good choice!!! Topspin is only good for its graphics and tournaments.

    Tennis 2K2 is the best game out there. I it isn't as one demensional as the other two (Topspin and Smash Court). You can actually force errors and if your not in good position the game wont put your player there for you-you'll just end up hitting a bad shot. You can also hit shots comfortably from anywhere on the court. In smash court and topsin, the only two places where the game really designed you to play is the base line and the net - no trasitioning or anything like that.
