Final Match Tennis is the best tennis game i have ever played. Yes, better than Virtua Tennis, and Super Tennis and the great Mario Tennis on the N64.

The reason? The gameplay is just sublime. Its fast, realistic and fun.

You have sixteen players to select from. All of them are different. For instance, Borg has a poor serve but is fast and can hit vicious topspin shots and is a nightmare to play against on clay. And Becker can serve bombs and has great volleys but is a bit slow.

You have three shot buttons, normal shot, slice and lob. Some players hit with topspin and others hit the ball flat and some don't have a slice at all!!

I have a few complaints though. The world tour mode is rubbish compared to Super Tennis. And you can't hit different types of serves, only flat and slow.

Anyway, if you have a PC Engine, you NEED this game. Its ace…
