           Disappointing, Could have been great

          I bought this game on Play.com and received it this morning. I was really excited and couldn't wait to try it out. Unfortunately Top Spin 3 is not as impressive as it looks. The action of swinging the wii remote is great and does work very well however the game is let down by the speed of the game play, it is really slow!!! One of the first things that I noticed was how easy it was to defeat the computer-controlled opponent even on very hard mode. The graphics of Top Spin 3 are quite good and all the players look fairly reel. For me the big let down of this game is that there is no online play and why not??, it would have been a lot better with online play. Also there is no proper career mode, just the "Road To Glory" which doesn't even allow you to create your own character it is too short and can be completed in a few hours. The character selection is good but could be improved as there is no Nadal or Djokovic or Hewitt or Ferrer and on the Ladies side there is no Ivanovic or Jankovic or Davenport and nether Williams sisters are to be found so the character selection could be vastly improved. They were also meant to have older players but the only two are Boris Beaker and Mark Phillipoussis, they should have included John McEnroe and maybe Steffi Graff. The party games are average but you would get tired of them fairly quickly. All in all for me Top Spin 3 is a big let down and could and maybe should have been a great game as the first two Top Spin games weren't great either, you would have thought that that they would have learned from their mistakes. I just hope Virtua Tennis or Smash Court Tennis release a game on the wii and use this game as a stepping-stone to a better wii tennis game!!!

          Overall: 4/10
          Game play: 4/10
          Graphics: 7/10
          Character Selection: 6/10

          Okay, I am a big fan of tennis and of the Top Spin series in general having bought and played the last two on Xbox and Xbox 360. This latest addition doesnt make the transition to the Wii at all Im afraid to say. Its a real shame because I was so looking forward to playing a realistic tennis simulation with a great career mode and a full roster of today's tennis stars. Top Spin 3 is and has none of these things.

          The gameplay is quite easy to pick up once you have spent a while figuring it out and reading the instructions booklet, but putting it into practice and getting the results you want can prove very difficult. In many cases, you can have pushed your opponent around the court for a couple of minutes before finding a bit of open court, and just as you go for the winner, you slice it the completely wrong way and you are back to square one. It is very tedious and slow, not at all the pacy, slick gameplay I had hoped for and expected. The ball moves through the air as if in slow motion and your character isn't generally much faster. The controls and technique for actually hitting the ball are flawed as well in my opinion. Moving the analogue stick thing on the nunchuk moves your player and when you feel the Wii remote rumble slightly, it is time to prepare your shot. You do this by using the same control stick to point in the general directiuon of where you want the ball to end up, and swinging the Wii remote at the same time. I have often found that when approaching the ball from a different angle to the area in which I want to hit it, the player can run off back the way he was coming, or hit the ball in the wrong direction. This becomes increasingly frustrating as as I have mentioned the gameplay is so slow that it takes a good couple of minutes to even get yourself into a winning situation. It is like this every point and as you can imagine, a match can take a very long time indeed. At the beginning of the - very shoddy - "career mode" an average match takes about 10 minutes of repetitive, monotonous swinging. As you progress a tournament can take you upwards of an hour, which is simply ridiculous.

          Moving on the the career mode or "Road to Glory" as it is called in the game. You cant create or use your own character, and can even change your player every tournament if you like. This was my first disappointment. Secondly, you cannot save in the middle of a tournament. This is particularly frustrating as you can slug it out with Gail Monfils for half an hour in the first round of 4 or 5 and then find you have to go somewhere or have something to do. Or, as in my case, get extremely bored and play on somehting else. You then have to quit the tournament and all your hard work is lost. Thirdly, the whole thing is generally rubbish. you start with some beginner tournaments, then get to some slightly tougher ones before progressing onto the master, Grand Slams and finally a big league thing at the end. If you win this you have won the whole thing and (at the age of 92) you can take a well earned break. Honestly, the game makes watching test cricket positively orgasmic.

          The inclusion of some "party games" made me feel a bit better about the whole thing - until i played them. Basically you have two. One is called keys and basically you just play a normal match and the winner is the one who, at the end of it, has the best statistics. Woohoo! The second is called Invincib;le man and is basically a series of you guessed it - normal matches - in a winner stays on kind of format. Very poor in my opinion. To sum up then.

          Good Points - Has some players including Andy Murray.

          Bad Points - Poor gameplay, rubbish sound, rubbish career mode. There is basically too many to list.

           Am i missing something?

          As a left hander I'm bemused there is no setting for this.. Unless someone can enlighten me that I'm missing something. Very poor gameplay. Save your money.

          WHY is there no online mode?
          WHY can't you make your own players?
          WHY can't you play in proper tournaments?

          All these are available on PS3 and Xbox so WHY not on Wii. The gameplay is mediocre at best and then after every point it flashes at you saying 'React?' and it gives you a really crappy clip of your player clenching their fist. This game is genuinely poor and is the biggest disappointment of any Wii game i have played.

          With no character creation or proper career mode this game feels like a disappointment and lacks the playability of the others in the Top Spin series, after all Tiger Woods PGA pulled it off pretty well. The main Tennis part is generally very good if a little arm aching. If your after a basic Tennis game then this is for you, however, if like me your after a sports game with alittle more depth then this is not for you. With no Wimbledom or other major tournaments i'd give it two-three weeks and you'll be bored with it.
