Best Tennis game I have ever played (and I have played loads), amazing game accuracy and great game flow - on line mode is also very competitive as you can select to play games with players who are around you ability level which allows you to train up to a better player.
Trust me you wont be disappointed if you buy this game - well worth the money.
Me and my friends all decided to buy this game, as I looked at trailers and reviews and it seemed pretty good. Nearly everything about this game is really good although the timing with shots needs a while to get used to so 4 out of 5 stars. The other star would have been given if only there was doubles matches online, they can only be played if 2 people are on the same console 4 PEOPLE CANNOT PLAY OVER XBOX LIVE I put that in caps as for me and my friends this was the main reason I bought it. Really disappointed with that and is such an obvious feature that needs implanting NOW since we live in 2011 where games are taking over the entertainment industry. Although this game is very very good.
This game is simply a great game,i have been playing the virtua tennis series over the last couple of years and never bought a top spin game prior to this one but this game has hit the nail on the head,very realist with a nice amount of depth and great shot selection.graphic are fluid and it has some very nice touches in terms of attention to detail.This is a must buy for any tennis fans..!
First off can i say that i had always preferred the gameplay in the virtua tennis series (apart from the last one) a lot better than the topspin franchise but this time they have outdone themselves.
This game is as good as your gonna get from the graphics to the atmosphere on court its just awsome with a deep career mode and the online thrown in as well it blows you away, i'm a big tennis fan and have always loved (hitmaker's) virtua tennis but they have got their work cut out to beat topspin going by this showing , but with hitmaker back in the VT camp fingers cross we might have 2 great tennis games this summer , but one things for sure theres already definately one!!
i have always liked tennis games. i have played alot of previous top spins and virtua tennis games, none of them have kept me so glued to my xbox as this one! it feels very realistic, and although the graphics are not amazing, it really doesnt make the game any less playable. its simple yet complex with an excellent career mode and the online play is very easy to get into and doesnt really lag much at all.overall it is a definite must have for any tennis lover (or just a tennis GAME lover like me!) a must buy!! :)
This tennis game is brilliant. An interesting career mode, superb life like shots and gameplay and it FEELS like you are playing real tennis.
Played a french lad online.... 3 sets and it went right down to break points where i won by a whisker. Probably the best game session I have ever had online for years, after the COD whitewash.
Bit laggy when playing americans, but apart from that.... brilliant in every way.
10/10 for this game.
In respect of a tennis game, this probably doesn't get much better! There has been the TopSpin and Virtua Tennis series for years now and one of the most obvious comparisons between the two is that Virtua Tennis is easier to play and more enjoyable for the less enthusiastic tennis fan. TopSpin 4 is more advanced and it is definitely harder to get to grips with the shot timings, however i believe it is easier to adjust to as simply tapping the shot button (virtua tennis style) can be just as effective as a power shot if timed right. With the inclusion of 'inside out' shots and drop volleys, this is without a doubt the most advanced tennis game there has been; one that is suitable for the experienced player and the rookies amongst you!
I do think it maybe lacks in range of game modes, although there is the 'king of the court' mode which is great for playing with mates. That is pretty much it though; no tournament mode for example. But it's a tennis game and it plays tennis perfectly so for now this is THE game to get.
