AO Tennis 2, the brand new tennis video game released by Big Ant Studios, lets people around the world get in the character of famous tennis players like Rafael Nadal, Gael Monfils, Ashleigh Barty and a lot more, but tennis legends like Roger Federer and Serena Williams were left out.
Therefore, if you own a PlayStation 4, an Xbox One or a Nintendo Switch, you will be able to provoke your friends or go into career mode in tennis matches that resemble real-life matches, but if your favorite player is Federer or Serena, please know that the creators didn’t include them.
This probably happened because of the lack of licensing. However, you still have chances to find your favorite players and play with them, if you are lucky enough to find them in ‘The Academy’ a database of custom-created tennis players made by other people who play the game.
Fortunately, AO Tennis 2 lets every user create their own players and share them with other members of the community. In fact, promoting the creativity of the users is one of the stand-out features of the game. You can sculpt the face of your own tennis player and go really deep with the details.
Also, you can tweak the body shape, but with more limited possibilities in comparison with the face editor. This way, if you can’t find Roger Federer, for example, you can give a shot at emulating him in the creator. To give you a broader idea of how the game really unfolds, here is a sample of gameplay.
