GenreSports Tennis
Reviewed byndial
Jimmy Connors' Tennis is a (what else) tennis game released in 1993 for the Nintendo NES, Nintendo Gameboy and Atari Lynx home systems.
Jimmy Connors TennisSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Set at the Bella Country Club (home of Jimmy Connors' Invitational Tennis Tournament) the game allows one to four players to enter a variety of tennis courts, test their skills, play and win. The game's options include singles and doubles, court surface selection, four skill levels and Friendly or Tournament matches. The actual tennis match is a grueling challenge and requires time and practice to fully master where to stand, when to swing, what swing to use and where to aim, moves that must be decided within 2 seconds! So beginners will have to be a bit patient. To help, the easier levels display a square mark to show where to stand in order to counter strike the ball. The AI opponents are quite worthy and their level increases in a gradual manner as you advance. Handmade Software managed to deliver a solid, no-nonsense portable version to this sports family! All its challenging action, detailed graphics and crisp voices and sounds make this game a very welcome and satisfying addition to the Lynx's library! The most important thing is that the game is difficult but not in a frustrating way.

The graphics are great, with nicely drawn courts and fairly decent sprites animation! The sound features realistic thuds every time the ball bounces off the ground or is hit with a swing (this is the most common sound here!) But the most impressive of all is the crystal clear ref's sampled voice that announces the scores and the faults!
