'Chop Chop Tennis' doesn't feel as complete as the rest of the 'Chop Chop' series, but with Gamerizon's signature one-finger gameplay it's still a simple to pick up and master game for those after a quick round of tennis.

As the third game in Gamerizon's 'Chop Chop' series, 'Chop Chop Tennis' certainly has a lot riding on its shoulders after following in the footsteps of 'Ninja' and 'Runner'. While the first two games were successful platformers, 'Tennis' has taken a large diversion and brings 'Chop Chop's signature intuitive controls to the court.

If there's anything that Gamerizon can't be faulted on, it's their clever use of the touch screen to provide players with a simple and easy to master control system. Movement has been taken out of the hands of players, with swipes being used to determine the power and type of shot you want to use. The ball can be easily lobbed, spun or sliced back and forth which makes rallies easy to maintain and can get quite lengthy depending on how good your opponent is.

However it's the ease of controls that seems to have let Chop Chop Tennis down, making it hard to position yourself and your subsequent strike to out maneuver your opponent. Rallies often feel like they're won or lost due to simple errors rather than skilled placement. The series' signature designs have also remained despite making the jump to full 3D graphics.

'Chop Chop Tennis' delivers an easy to pick up and play game that clearly earns the 'Chop Chop' title despite its obvious differences. Compared to the value of 'Ninja' and 'Runner' it's hard to recommend 'Tennis' until multiplayer mode is patched in, but fans of the series won't be seriously disappointed either way.

It does feel that way a bit, though it doesn't quite have the same feel of Wii Tennis (which I enjoy a lot!).
