3- I don't know if you can still tweak the players movements or not but here goes...
In response to Brad and S.Williamz concerns with PL1's movement I understand that the run speed is at max, but it would be nice if the player would break into his run earlier in his sideways movement instead of shuffling so much (purely for visual enhancement).
4- In addition, during his sideways run it would be more realistic if his head was turned more towards the net (or more accurately toward the opponents incoming shot) because that's the way it's done in real tennis. (now it looks like he isn't even looking at the oncoming shot when he runs)
5- Also, when I'm at net and hit what looks like a SURE volley winner the CPU will do what looks almost like a sneaky late hit...I replayed it in slow motion and it appears that he got to it before the 2nd bounce but that's not too realistic.
6- Also what is the little visual that sometimes appears in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen (it looks like a player bouncing a ball with his raquet) Listen...
I know you said that your budget is not as big as some of the other games but these little suggestions , if possible, would go a long way to adding even more realism to TE2008
It's a GRREAT game!!!
