Review
Great Courts 2STORY / GAMEPLAY
This sports game has you to participate in just about any type of tennis match you may desire. You can compete one Vs one against a human opponent or the computer or play doubles with a friend against two computer opponents. You can play on grass, clay, hard or indoor courts, serve, volley, smash, lob or even practice against a ball-serving machine. The controls are quite tricky to handle at first but they soon become quite easy and bring hours of enjoyment, especially in two-players mode.
One of the game's greatest features is its option to enter the world's leading tournaments. Your computer simulates a normal tennis year, with you competing in all major events that make up the calendar and improving your character's abilities.
The gameplay is surely good, as long as you master your strikes and serves.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The Atari ST version has fine graphics and up to 16 colors on screen. The sprites are nicely drawn and animated, whilst each tennis court has its own details. The ST version has a variety of tennis sound effects including the grunt of your athlete as you swing, the bouncing of the ball off the ground and the announcer's speech calling out the scores. There is also an introductory and a main menu music score.
