Outlaw Tennis (2005)
Developer: Hypnotix
Platform: X-Box
Purchase Date: 10/05/2005

Nope, no graphical glitches here.

Outlaw Tennis is a very clever game because it changes what could have easily been "just another tennis game" into something distinct and extraordinary. Sure, the gameplay is not as tight as the tennis games from Sega, but what you get here are a number of clever variations of the sports and a strong sense of personality that comes from the Outlaw portion of the title. This game is as filthy as they come: In it you will find ultra-sleazy characters who are courageously represented from the typical stereotypes of losers and criminals, outrageously bold commentaries, and a lot of funny cut scenes that really spice up the actual matches. The sexual innuendos - no, they are not even innuendos... They are straightforward declarations - are so shocking sometimes that I cannot believe how brave Hypnotix was with testing the boundaries of bad taste.

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
