Grand Slam Tennis 2 is like Andy Murray

Grand Slam Tennis 2 is like Andy Murray not great but not terrible either. The type of shots are like any other tennis games flat, top spin, slice and overhead/smash. The controls are like Top spin pretty intuitive and manageable with the right joystick. Career Mode is like any EA sport game you create your character, even you can put your face in the game like in fifa, Tiger Woods PGA and the next Fifa Street through EAsports.com, some of the movement of the players seems a little too fast: While Dojokovic and Nadal are fast players, Kei Nishikori is not even in that league. Also, some of the animations are not that accurate, i.e.; Nadal rarely does a single backhand.

The commentators are pretty funny but really repetitive, it's a bummer than they didn't have females ones. Even though is sponsored by ESPN there's no ESPN commentators, would have liked to see Brad Gilbert, Darren Cahill, Mary Joe Fernandez or Pam Shriver since they actually commentate on ESPN. Pat Cash and Johnny Mac are from Tennis Channel actually. The online service is pretty much like in Fifa is little better than Virtua Tennis but not as great than Top spin 4. Would have like to see more tournaments besides the 4 majors and some minor unreal ones.

In the end, I feel GST 2 is good approach to tennis but not perfect. While Virtua Tennis is fancy and bright like Djokovic/Nadal; Top spin is more like Federer classy and hard to master. GST 2 is more like Andy Murray "great but not terrible". Maybe the next one will fix all this errors, in the mean time i'll go back to Top Spin and do my FedSlam.
