Summary: What is this garbage? This game has bad controls first of all. It will take a couple days to master. The graphics themselves are fairly impressive for the ds, but it's all downhill from there. I found multiple problems with sound and you can get bored of this easily.
Summary: Having to make the player move to the ball is stupid. When you play tennis, you naturally move to the ball to hit it. This game requires one button for you to get to the ball and another to hit it when you're in the right spot. It's not intuitive like real tennis. The player should go to the ball automtically and the game should revolve around hitting the ball using various spins, depth etc. As it is, just getting the player to the ball is half 3/4 of the battle.
Summary: I have not played this game on other consoles, nor have I played any previous incarnations of Top Spin--so apologies if this is "standard knowledge" for this publisher: but I found this a very disappointing port of this game, as it makes no use of the stylus during gameplay. Having been spoiled by Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 , I'd have thought there would be opportunities galore to have the player power-up his serve, aim his racket, or at least run by using the touch-screen.
Conclusion: Received this game today from a different company and in my opinion its not very good. The graphics are awful (i know its a ds, but i've seen better graphics on a mobile). You can pick two different camera's, either close or tv view basically.
