‘Wii Sports Club: Tennis’ initial thoughts

First impressions can often be misleading and this couldn’t be more the case for “Wii Sports Club: Tennis.”

At first glance, it’s easily similar to the other versions of the game on “Wii Sports” and “Wii Sports: Resort.” After a few games however, you’ll notice several key improvements that make it the best of the Wii Sports tennis games to date.

There’s a lot to do in Sports Club tennis, from silly mini-games to online play. Although this is nothing new for the series the camera and controls have been super tightened to the point where you’ll want to play more than you did before. This has everything to do with the control. In older versions of the game, players could simply swat the Wiimote in any direction and the game would register a swing and a volley fest would ensue.

This time around, the Wii MotionPlus control is so much more intuitive that it’ll recognize your hand’s posture and will make sure you take the correct swing, or else. For example, if a ball comes at your forehand and your hand is positioned in the backhand position, you’re not going to be able to get the ball over the net. This seemingly small improvement makes what is often considered the redheaded stepchild of Wii Sports titles easily one of the more enjoyable ones on “Wii Sports Club.”

Bottom Line: If you’ve enjoyed Tennis via “Wii Sports” or “Wii Sports: Resort,” the newest version on “Wii Sports Club” is easily the best. Improved controls, camerawork and online functionality easily set it above its predecessors.
