Sequels are expected to be better, but often they’re not. That’s the case with Sampras Tennis ’96, which offered little improvements over the original.

Not that tennis has ever really lacked in the fun department. From the excellent Super Tennis on the SNES to the great Pete Sampras Tennis series on the Genesis, there has always been a good game within reach.
