Summary: Lots of fun with this game. The movements are impecable. And each famous player has its very own way of moving. When it comes to making your own face for a player it's not very good. Besides that it the best tenis game.
Summary: This game is great. I have played it before on other systems and love it just as much on my new PS3. Bad first - The most annoying thing to me was starting out the game, the timing is tough to get down and it took a good week of playing to cut down on just straight up missing the ball which was really frustrating at first. Now that I have played the game for over a month I really enjoy the gameplay.
Summary: The controls are not intuitive and it'll take you some time before you get used how to play, but if you take the lessons you'll be ok with that. The game is very realistic and it's more of a tennis simulator than arcade. The career mode is very fun and challenging, since you create your own player and start from scratch. The only thumb down is that the online matches are random. If you're into tennis, you definetely should own it.
Summary: Its mostly a real oriented game, not an arcade one. I just need to keep playing it since Ive got it a couple of days ago but seems very nice. Since it es real life oriented the game tends to be quite difficult at the beggining but you get on it in a few hours of play.
Summary: Like any crazy tennis fan, I pre-ordered this game and am not disappointed. The graphics are great, just as good as the new virtua tennis graphics. It's fun to actually start at as an amateur, then Junior and finally the pro-tournaments. The game play is a little tricky and not so easy like with other tennis games. On the other hand that makes everything more exciting. If you play big hitters like Kuznetsova you might not be able to beat here 3:0 like other players.
Summary: Not perfect but its better than Virtual Tennis 3 and Top Spin 2. In VT3, the ball rarely even goes out so its not much of a challenge. TS2 is the worst out of the three because risk shots are near impossible to do and really takes away an important feature (and fun factor) to the game. So far TS3 feels a lot more fun and challenging to play.. with one complaint, the risk shot feature.
Difficult to learn, but fun once you know how to play

Summary: This game is not like most other tennis games out there. Specifically, when compared to a game like Virtua Tennis 3, the learning curve is much harder. The first week was spent mistiming the swings and either missing completely or performing really weak returns that made me wonder how I could make Federer look so clumsy.
Summary: I am new to video gaming, but am a former expert tennis player, and have downloaded the demo to Virtua tennis 3 to compare. for someone who actually plays tennis and is willing to work at this game, there is no comparison, Topspin is absolutely completely better and more realistic as a tennis game. Virtua 3 is cartoonish and annoying. It is harder and you have to work at the timing to get it, it is pretty counterintuitive in the beginning.
Summary: The controls are a bit tricky, while great away from the net, its near impossible to play when your at the net. I give it A for effort on being innovative with the controls, they just need to work on it some more.
