Rock the courts with Sega’s classic gaming characters and dozens of minigames in this new sports game. Get the final score with our game review.

SEGA just pitched a new game out - Sega Superstar Tennis! It's a crazy sports game that takes video game stars like Sonic the Hedgehog, Tails, Amigo, Dr. Eggman and more, drops them onto a tennis court and pitches a giant bucket full of crazy on them. The regular game of tennis gets mixed up with levels from different games, invaded by zombies and more! Does it make the game fun? Find out with our game review.

Racquets, Balls, Zombies and Hedgehogs

Starting with 16 of SEGA's most famous video game characters (but no Iron Man, dangit!) Sega Superstar Tennis gives you a basic tennis game with a good variety of players to choose from. Then it gets weird with Superstar mode - where each character's level comes to life as part of a tennis game! From rings and mice on the court, to using tennis balls to play Puyo Pop Fever! There are over 100 ways to play this game.

Loving it!

There are so many cool ways to play this game, it can really boggle the brain! The basic game is ok, and the characters play differently and have their own super moves. The Superstar mode mini-games are the real winners though - each one giving you a crazy new twist on tennis that's almost like playing one of SEGA's classic games. There's also an online mode for PS3 and Xbox 360 where you can play matches, tournaments and even use a TV mode to watch other matches. It's awesome!

Hating it!

Even with a few stinkers, the mini-games are a hoot. But, the tennis is weak! You're stuck volleying until your opponent misses a shot, which can take forever. Doubles games have some problems too - the graphics slow down when you play. It's not bad, but it's annoying.

Superstar Score

The glitches in the basic tennis game are a pain, but everything else is fantastic fun! It's a great way to play around on the courts with Sonic, Samba the monkey, the Jet Set Radio dude and more.
