Sure, Great Courts 2. Mental Software tried to copy the great PC-Engine tennis games World Court Tennis, Final Match Tennis with their Tennis Champs & Super Tennis Champs. But they aren't really good to control.

Well, it's also known as Pro Tennis Tour 2. The SNES sequal "Jimmy Connors Pro Tennis Tour" is even better.

I disagree, if I remember correctly Great Court 2 doesn't let move the player,he moves automatically. I can not consider it a game good.

I don't think there's a good game of tennis on Amiga, the closest is International Tennis and the weird Smash!

That's not true. You can select computer controlled and manual running controls in Great Courts 2.

Maybe on 'average' setting it will allow to move player.

Yep, it's the "average" option, "junior" is computer controlled.

Center Court Tennis could have been a great game, but unfortunately it's much too fast.
Great Courts 2 is probably the best tennis game on the Amiga, but there are better ones on other platforms (e.g. Final Match Tennis).

Nah, Tennis Cup has a completely wrong angle for Tennis and splitscreen for 2-players. I had more fun with the Hugo games.

But it's true. Old Tennis games should be played on consoles.

PC-Engine = World Court Tennis, Final Match Tennis
SNES = Jimmy Connors, Smash Tennis
Dreamcast = Virtua Tennis 1+2

I'm probably alone in this, but after I played Center Court Tennis I never returned to Great Courts 2 (which I'd played to death till then). I think it's 10 times better.

You mean this cheap Blitz Tennis? Another fail to copy the console Tennis games. Wrong speed/timing and ball physics. At least playable, compared to Tennis Cup.

My favourite non-Amiga tennis-like is Sanrio Smash Ball for SNES [ Show youtube player ] Maybe it's more like air hockey but you need to press button to hit ball. My first was Atari Tennis [ Show youtube player ]
