Review

Graphically, this is pretty average fare. Though the motion captures are fairly fluid, the characters themselves are choppy, and they suffer from significant polygonal flickering. The ones at the far end of the court are so noisy they resemble TV static. All Star Tennis 99 does OK in the illusion-of-depth department. Though the ball itself is essentially a featureless two-dimensional circle, its shadow provides enough of a sense of depth for you to get the job done. Like in many console tennis games before this one, control is tricky at first.
