Have been Salivating for a new Arcade Tennis game that isn’t a Nintendo exclusive. We were given our new Simulation Tennis games this year with the like of AO Tennis, Tennis World Tour and Full Ace Tennis.
Yes, Timber Tennis Versus was already out on mobile a year ago. None of the crappy microtransactions, the grind to make your character stronger does not show up on the Console/PC Port. Every character here is equal in ability.
Sadly, just like the Mobile Part you have no control of where the ball goes bar the serve. Your will never miss as long as you are in front of the ball. You can’t foray into the net, can’t slice either. It a battle of attrition on the baseline, thankfully there are Random Skill Boxes that show up on the floor that help sway a tense rally your way. The box contains Skills ranging from turning into a giant, shooting a grenade, creating a mist, and so on.
Timber Tennis comes with a Career Mode, a Local Versus Mode, and Online Mode. Career Mode contains Skirmish Mode where you can play against AI, and Tournament. Online you can create a private lobby or fight against random’s in Ranked Mode. There is cross play, which a huge plus.
The scoring system isn’t like the Tennis System of 15, to Deuce. It whoever gets to the winning number first. You can set the winning number from 1 to 8. There no up by two when you are even. For example the winner is whoever gets to 5 first. If both of you are at 4 all, it whoever gets the next point wins.
You get gold for each match you win or lose. That you can use to buy Characters, and different balls. They are all cosmetic and have no changes at to the game play.
As a tennis fan, this was disappointing compared to other Arcade Tennis games like Mario Tennis and Virtua Tennis. I still felt like I got my money worth from the online mode. The thrill of dodging or neutralizing an opponent skill, grabbing a skill box quickly when the ball is going away from you and getting back in the nick of time.
At it’s price point of 1.99, and if you like a casual sports game then it is a recommend for me. The game is super easy to get into and the online mode alone is worth that cost alone. I know I will be playing give this a few more hours of my time.…
