Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Match Point'

Rating:4 User: snekeel

Technically this is very good and it plays a lot like tennis unlike many tennis games on the Spectrum. The one gripe I have though is you don't seem to be in control of your racket, it changes hands quite often while you're moving which creates confusion and adds difficulty returning balls. I thought I cracked it mid-game by pressing fire before the ball reaches me and then when you hit it, but eventualy the problem continues to exist in spite of this. I can guess that's a simulated part of the game. And as with most tennis games, being at the top of the screen is a nightmare! But I admire the technical efforts this presents and that despite its negatives it is a lot more playable than the majority of tennis games.
