In some circles, Hot Shots Golf is considered the best golf series on the PlayStation 2. So it\'s a logical extension of Clap Hanz\'s capabilities to bring another Hot Shots-style sport to market (even this late in the PS2 cycle). Problem is the simplicity in their golf franchise left everything in the user\'s hands -- here in Hot Shots Tennis, the simplicity is just plain boring. rnThe gameplay mechanics are solid enough (though completely simple) and the graphics are fine, but the game has all the personality of a Honda Civic. The characters are glib and uninteresting: One kid plays in swim trunks, another is an Indian chief, and the rest are dressed as boring old tennis players. Hot Shots Golf was based on goofball characters, but the characters here shine as brightly as broken flashlights. This issue could have been solved by create-a-player, but no such luck. It seems creating players, particularly on the PS2, is a gaming standard now -- but you won\'t find it here. rnrnBut the game\'s biggest flaw is that it requires you to self-motivate (much like Motorstorm, another Sony game, only this one\'s way shier on graphics). Instead of giving inspiring unlockables or setting up unique challenges, this one challenges you simply to win matches. The reward? Lame unlockables like even more boring characters, access to new costumes, and new umpires to call matches. Excited yet? Neither are we. Where are the new rackets that let you smack the ball harder? Or new shoes that make you a fraction faster? It doesn\'t need to be on the levels of Virtua Tennis or Top Spin, but an opportunity for some kind of depth and replayability was missed. Also, if you\'re expecting minigames...sorry. The training is the only mode outside of the main single-player mode and exhibition, and it\'s less than thrilling to say the least. rnrnThe market is flooded with simple tennis games (Mario Tennis and Wii Sports\' Tennis come to mind), and this one is fun enough -- the way Pong is fun enough -- but it has no depth at all. The game\'s big win is its multiplayer, but aren\'t most games fun with friends? In the end, this one poses as a tennis game for beginners, but even tykes will only be mildly amused.
