Lately it seems to be the season for sports titles, which shouldn't be too much of a surprise as Summer starts to get in to full swing. Enter Ace Tennis 2010 Online, the latest in Eurocenter's multiplayer Tennis series.
For those who just have to get up and move, Ace Tennis features several accelerometer optimized actions to get you in the zone. Tilting your device after hitting the ball will curve, lob or drop balls, giving you relatively precise positioning of where your hits are going to land. The touch based controls also feature after-touch swiping to perform the same precise moves. Sadly movement of your character is extremely loose, with no regard to body momentum on various surfaces. Similarly, connecting with the ball can be hard as depth can be hard to judge and the player does not dive or otherwise reach for the ball.
The visual design for Ace Tennis 2010 has undergone a subtle upgrade, with players and courts having a much more realistic look compared to the cartoonish sprites of the original. Multiplayer matches are still a huge feature and it's easy to find matches to play online, but local networks are strangely not available.
Ace Tennis 2010 Online feels like it's straddling the line between Realistic and Arcade without really falling down on either one, making it hard to completely enjoy. Fans of sport titles will enjoy the easy to use online multiplayer features, but it's hard to recommend to most casual players.
