Some people love racing games, others live for FPS titles, I’m known as the guy on the team who sinks more time into tennis games than any other. It’s been a running joke that every time people log into the PSN, that I’m always playing Virtua Tennis World Tour on Vita.
Now, don’t get me wrong, that’s a very solid game, but the main reason why I’m still playing it five years after release is due to the fact that there hasn’t been a single major tennis game release on a home console since Virtua Tennis World Tour on the Vita which released six years ago.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when Melbourne Studio Big Ant revealed AO Tennis. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little nervous, due to the fact that all of my hopes and dreams were being placed on this single title. Most of my nerves came from the fact that the period between announcement and release date (January 16th) was so short.
