AO Tennis 2 will release on January 9th, 2020 on consoles and PC.

Control in the original AO Tennis felt better than Tennis World Tour but career mode was a bit lacking, hoping it will be improved in the next game.

Thanks for posting the link. Looks great on the video. I haven't played any of the tennis games on this generation because the animations didn't look great on video and the reviews suggested, to me at least, that things had gone backwards since Topspin 4. For now, this looks tempting.

For me the most "fun factor" tennis games are Virtua Tennis. Still waiting for VT5 but for realism I still think Top Spin 3 was the ultimate. It took awhile to get used to the controller mechanics but once you did it represented really well how you position and hit a tennis ball.

The community at AO Tennis was awesome to download. No Federer in this title, no problem.

It was just the unrealistic robotic movement of the players that irked me. The AI would be just too tough at times to break, the foundation is there but it needs more fluidity to the game, some movements were just too stiff to execute.

Contrary, WTT had slightly better tennis AI but the graphics were aweful, still it didn’t feel like tennis.

EA had something going but didn’t pursue it. There’s a title only available on PC, you want realistic tennis, that’s it. Just can’t remember the name now.

Will see what AO brings the second time around.

Try to think of it...I’m curious.
