I second the no online comment!
Come on, developers! A lot of our "friends" we like to play with are rarely in the same room with us! Personally, my family and friends are scattered across the globe... not just in the states.
Get with the times... Then the Wii wouldn't be failing so miserably!

I'll be getting this regardless, being the tennis freak that I am.

ah more shovelware. no surprise there. i only have a wii for the nintendo branded games. everything else mostly sucks and is just shovelware. when a dev tries to give hardcore, they fail but when they give shovelware it succeeds? yeah nintendo needs to do better next gen.



XCWarrior said:

It's Ubisoft, which when it come to Wii products means shovelware. Ignored, we don't need more party BS games.

I think it looks kinda cool, and with Wii Motion Plus support, it should be fun.

Squash? Yay, just what I was hoping for. There are way too few Squash games, let alone good ones like Cosmic Squash (which hasn't got that much in common with real squash for that matter).
So I'm looking forward to this.

YES! Another Squash fan. If they can make it even more fun than Monkey Squash in SMBBB then I'll be happy. Hope it's not a quick cash-in like Vacation sports.

WOW! A mini-game compilation! A breath of fresh air that's sure to take the Wii by storm!

Beach..... Tennis? 0_0

Ain't that just the same as Regular... Tennis?

I read this game will utilize the Your Shape camera as well. I love how UbiSoft exploits Wii technology and peripherals, their games themselves, not so much.
