Summary: Basically, Top Spin 3 is a tennis game that tries to overcomplicate itself in order to take the title of "most realistic tennis game." I don't think thats a good thing. The career mode is very linear and doesn't give you much room to do much.
Excerpt: Topspin games have always been my favourites among other tennis games. When compared to Virtua Tennis, Topspin is a step above every time. This game is similar to the past versions in the way that it offers a realistic tennis simulation.
Excerpt: Top Spin 3 I thought that this was a great game and it gives you the ultimate tennis gaming experience. The game lets you play as players like Federer, Nadal or even Becker. The tournament mode on this game is truly awesome and the very hard level is quite challenging.
Pros: This game has great gameplay, graphics and very realistic .
Cons: The only problem after playing for a while is that you can start to get a bit bored .
The best tennis game around, but ultimately a bit dull and repetitive

Summary: As far as tennis games go, this is very good indeed. You have a fair selection of shots and the graphics are very realistic. Certainly it knocks the spots off the more arcade types of tennis games. It is highly entertaining for a few hours, but ultimately it does get a bit dull and repetitive.
A very decent tennis game and certianly one of the better efforts on the market

Excerpt: I found myself liking topspin 3 but also hating it at times as well, but I would probably say that the good things outweight the bad ones. I will start by saying that the game has a very steep learning curve and is very hard to master so some persitence will be needed with this game.
Excerpt: Topspin is one of the most challenging yet rewarding tennis games Iv'e played. It is most definitely a simulation in comparison to the more arcade feeling Virtua Tennis. I found Topspin quite hard to grasp at first. It definitely takes some getting used to, as the controls are quite complex.
A fantasic tennis simulation let down by a poor online mode.

Excerpt: I must admit to being skeptical when I was recommended Top Spin 3 by a friend. Like most, the only tennis game I have ever played growing up was Virtua Tennis, certainly a fun pick up and play game but it never lasted on me.
Excerpt: I've always enjoyed playing tennis games on consoles, and Top Spin 3 is easily the best and most realistic tennis game yet. The attention to details by the game developers is quite simply impressive.
Pros: Very realistic; tremendous attention to details; Good career mode
Cons: Very steep learning game; Frustrating game - play at times; Can get repetitive after a while
