Ace Tennis for the iPhone is still one of my favorite tennis games on the iPhone. The controls feel right and it definitely one of the best tennis experiences on the platform. Now Ace Tennis 2010 HD Online has been released and is basically a reboot of the iPhone version with much better graphics. The game is extremely similar to the older one.
Players can still play through the single player game and through a tournament or they can hop online to play against other iPad users. The game played smooth and controlled perfectly although the game's most glaring feature came up immediately. The old game struggled with online matchmaking and was plagued by immense lag. The iPad seems to have inherited that same issue and made the online portion of the game completely unplayable. My character would move perfectly smooth but after a serve, I would watch my opponent miss the ball and a second later it would come shooting back at my face. It was completely unpredictable and ruined the experience for me.
Overall, the game is good, but in order to be something I recommend, the multiplayer has to take it up a few notches. I suggest passing on this one.
