Andre Agassi returns as spokesperson for his second tennis video game in nearly ten years, this time courtesy of DreamCatcher Interactive. Players can challenge the professional or step into his tennis shoes as they embark on a series of competitive matches held around the world. Twelve courts are available, each with different surface types such as grass or clay, as well as a selection of over 30 athletes with varying abilities in speed, strength, and stamina. Four modes of play include Championship, Quick Match, Tournament, and Arcade.
Championship offers players 10,000 dollars and a number of choices in which to spend it on, from coaches to personal trainers to talent agents. Each individual can help improve an athlete's abilities in specific areas over time. Quick Match drops players onto a court for a single match, while Arcade is designed to offer players a more simplified control scheme. Tournament has players competing against a series of fictitious opponents on each of the 12 courts to win prize money. The PlayStation 2 version of the game features motion-capture animation from Agassi himself. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
