International Tennis Open is a sports video game developed by Infogrames Multimedia and published by Philips Interactive Media in 1992. It was released on PC, Philips CD-i, Macintosh, and DOS. It was a pack-in game for some CD-i models.[1] The UK version of the game is available in French and English as it is a French game.

Plot[edit]

Players take on the role of "Victor Player" - An experienced player whose nationality depends on what language has been selected. There are several different gameplay styles. Match - Allows players to play a single game of tennis. Tournament - Allows players to play a series of games against various opponents. Training - Allows players to practice before playing a game. This involved playing against a ball throwing machine.

In between or at the start of games, sports commentator George Eddy would comment on the game.

Reception[edit]

GamePro gave the CD-i version a perfect score, lauding the game for its "awesome, realistic, rotoscoped graphics and animation similar to, but more fluid than, Delphine Software's Flashback", its realistic sounds, and its challenging AI opponents.[2]
