Grand Slam Tennis 2 marks the first time the franchise will appear on the Xbox 360, and the first time that it will be in HD. The title looks to inject some innovation into tennis games, with it's Total Racquet Control and Professional, Realistic, Organic (P.R.O.) AI. The player's actual playing styles and behavior are on full display, right down to their swing and player reaction. You'll need to attack each player differently, just like if you were really across the net from them.

As the cover(s) indicate, you'll be able to play as legendary tennis athletes of the past. These champions were highlighted in the roster reveal awhile back. You can relive and replay 25 classic Grand Slam® moments, powered by ESPN. Grand Slam Tennis is the only current tennis title to feature the celebrated Wimbledon tournament.

Grand Slam Tennis 2 will arrive in Europe first on February 10th, and bringing a new definition to love when it arrives on February 14th in North America.
