Virtua Tennis 2009 Championship Pack £12.99 @ Amazon [Wii Games]

It's become the 'cool' thing in a hip, new movie or TV series to have people playing the Wii. When they do, it's usually a game of tennis: big, brash, everybody know what you're doing, especially if you get into the spirit with the obligatory Wimbledon grunts. But try as they might, the Wiimotes look more like an entertainment system all-in-one rather than a sporting utensil, which is where this tasty bundle comes in.

For just under £13 from Amazon you can nab yourself a copy of Virtua Tennis 2009 and two racket attachments for you and your partner to take to the virtual courts in style. HMV are offering the same price for zero stock at the moment, and the next competitor is £10 away at ShopTo.

To be honest, the Wii is the only console you'd even think about biying Virtua Tennis 2009 for, as it's a disappointing affair on the higher end consoles and a disaster on the PC. On Nintendo's alabaster cuboid, however, it proves to be a fairly nifty little title that plays to the Wii's strengths, bringing a wealth of content, some fun developmental mini-games and much-needed tuning to the formula laid down by the Tennis part of Wii Sports.

Although compatible with Wii MotionPlus, it's not included, the rackets being somewhat more decorative than anything else, but it helps you get in the spirit of the thing, and the motion-control is pretty good even without MotionPlus, much better than that in Wii Sports anyway.

You can buy the game solo for around £1.50 less, but I'd actually go with this one. Accessories are a fundamental part of the Wii Experience, and the game genuinely feels better - it's far easy to give yourself over to thrashing your arms about like Roger Federer's crackpot cousin with these attachments - with them included.
