Instant Tennis is an arcade tennis game with a twist on the control method. Depending on how long you hold the one button down for will depend on how the shot comes out. Sounds a bit strange but in p[ractice works really well. The one part that lets it all down is the crazy sensitive aiming arrow. I swear The whole time I play I am fighting the arrow more than the player. Granted its with the button method but that’s because motion control needs a lot of space. Aside from that, You can learn and get used to it all in a few matches, The game plays well and the stamina system adds a little extra, I don’t like that you cannot turn it off or have a wide range of AI difficulties or game rules but for what it is is Instant Tennis is fine for a quick little workout or to play with the younger gamer in the household.
