Top Spin Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: I’ve written this whole review with only one Anna reference (if ya’ll don’t know, she is awful in tennis, but looks good playing it) and NO tennis lingo puns, but I can’t help myself - I LOVE this game!

Top Spin – Review

  • Excerpt: I confess—I don't know the first thing about tennis. Sure, I watch it on TV every now and then when something big is happening, but I never paid much attention to it or really understood all of its rules and nuances. After playing Top Spin , though, I gained a newfound appreciation for the sport.

  • Summary: If anything saves Top Spin, it is the online play – only there does the game offer any lasting enjoyment. Still, the control and organization problems make Top Spin much less of a game than it could have (and should have) been.
  • Pros: Strong create-a-player mode, Anna Kournikova.
  • Cons: Shallow single player mode, lack of precision.

  • Excerpt: The Virtua Tennis series has had a fair old run as the king of the tennis sims, and deservedly so. A simple but deep control system, excellent gameplay and some amazing multiplayer memories meant that it was going to take a huge effort by some development team or another to even come close.

  • Conclusion: No matter if you are a tennis fan or not, Top Spin is a game which you simply must have in your collection, and it'll even go down well with people who aren't much of a tennis fan, but after you've played Top Spin you'll be counting the days to Wimbledon.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Sports games have always benefited from more powerful hardware, and Top Spin manages to extract a visually pleasing game out of Microsoft's box that also contains a solid gameplay system.
