Great Courts 2 (originally released as Pro Tennis Tour 2) is among the best tennis games for the home computers of the early 90s. The game was released only for the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST and PC (MS-DOS).
 
Review
Great Courts 2STORY / GAMEPLAY
As a tennis player you 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
As with the Amiga and ST counterparts, the PC (MS-DOS) version has fine graphics with up to 16 colors on-screen. A higher number of colors (around 200) is only shown at the introductory screen. The sprites are nicely drawn and animated, whilst each court is quite detailed. The DOS version supports Ad-Lib sound hardware and offers a variety of sound effects during gameplay, but not sampled and also includes a cool introductory and a main menu music.
