Why We Arent Getting Virtua Tennis 2009

They messed up the doubles. The balls move slower, all the players move quickly and you cant force errors with smashes like you could in VT3. Its much more of an attacking game at the net because thats the only way to score points consistently. There is no Virtua Tennis TV, you cant watch other peoples matches and the lobby is only 4 players! Having played the game online at a friends house, I have to say its a huge disappointment because the rest of the game is great. The minigames are improved and playable online, which is sweet, but its not enough to justify the atrocity they committed with the doubles. Huge bummer, but they cant take away VT3 from me; they will have to pry the copy from my cold, dead hands.
