@nintendan--I agree, both games are difficult, but that means they are more realistic. Golf and tennis are difficult in real life.

Not necessarily - Sega Superstars Tennis is harder than both games and it's far from realistic, or accurate. There are some definite quirks to GST that make it tough to get used to that have nothing to do with realism.

@Moai Head--Good point, but I think Tiger Woods and Grand Slam Tennis are pretty realistic.

To all the peeps who have been playing GST or T10. I'm so jealous! GST out in a couple o' days, but I gotta wait 3 weeks for Tiger!

Rawr!

Yay, a nod to SEGA Superstars Tennis.
I love SST and wait, did you say it's harder than GST? That might be saying a lot since I'm really good at SST and don't find it too difficult even when facing CPU's on the hardest difficulty but facing Dr. Eggman in the Special Match is really tough, that's for sure but oh SO much fun.

When I say "harder" I'm talking specifically about the motion controls, which I personally find terrible in SST. Getting the ball to go where it was supposed to felt so counter-intuitive. I'm glad Sumo Digital totally redesigned the controls for VT2009.

According to Amazon.de, Virtua Tennis 09 for Wii and PC have been delayed for another week in Europe (now June 19th). I guess it happened because of the tons of bug reports in the PS3/XBox360 Version..

Hard for me since I am appreciating this game for weeks Better than a bugged game though, of course.

That side-by-side article should be up in about 24 hours, for those who care.

So where's that article? Reviews of both games are still quite scarce.

Well after playing this for a good while; I am really not getting some good swinging results in TW10. Most of my shots are around 70-85% and really draw and fade. Really not sure what I am doing wrong since I do not feel that I am twisting the Wiimote+MP when I swing (maybe after the point where you make contact with the ball, but I really don't think it should matter).

I did switched to the Classic Putting cause I just don't understand the Precision mode at all when it comes to this game. When at times I feel I am just tapping the ball it just blazes way past the hole and onto the other side the green. Even then, I just don't get the greens at all, I thought I am reading them right but I still fail to get the ball into the pocket. I kind of feel they are a bit random, but I think its just me misreading them. Just overall, need more practicing: both short and the long game.

No, I do not play golf in real life, but that does not mean I am denied to play this great game.

I decided to take the extra time to try both games online so that I can add those impressions to the article. It'll be up sometime in the next eight hours or so.

As for individual reviews, James is doing VT2009 and I'm not sure who's doing Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 offhand. I was doing GST and may still be, I'm not entirely sure.

@Rizzo: Especially for VT 2009.
@Moai Head: Terrible motion controls? Hardly. But if you can notice an improvement then that's good.

As for TW PGA Tour 10, keep in mind that your player has to level up progressively as well before you start to notice big improvements. How you play obviously makes a big difference too. And clearly, you're doing something wrong with the Putting because it's near-perfect from what I've been told.

@pixelman - that depends on when the review copy arrives. Next week sometime, I imagine.

@Rizzo - I'll level with ya - I regularly work night shifts, but last night I was given the night off so instead of being up past midnight to throw up the article like I usually am (being an Aussie I tend to submit most stuff at that hour as that's when you limeys are most active) I decided to go to bed instead. Exhilirating, eh?

It's done but I'm having issues submitting it right now - I think it's too long. I honestly don't know how to condense it without it becoming a bunch of bullet points, so if that turns out to be the case it may not happen at all. Fingers crossed!

If you're having trouble, maybe post it on GameFAQS?

Not gonna happen - it's Nintendo Life or bust for the ol' Moai Head.

Moai_Head

KnucklesSonic8

lol. Well I'd hate to see you not post it at all simply because of some formatting issues. That seems rather silly.

KnucklesSonic8

Moai_Head

The issue has now been solved - missed an italics tag and the article divided by zero. Still, it looks might it might be longer than both reviews put together so I should probably tone it down a bit either way.

No need to shorten it if there is no need Mr. Head
Oh and personally I haven't got to play anymore of GST due to work and sleep. I will over the weekend though, but I'd say most people will know what they need to know by then lol

Really, that's okay. So long as its informative and helpful, that's all that matters to me. I'm not like other people, I don't mind reading lots of text.
