Top Spin

Xbox Evolved
16 August 2005
  • 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. Tennis is already a niche sport, so most gamers will likely ignore Top Spin. However, buying it isn’t necessarily a bad choice, since even with its problems those who enjoy the sport may find some value in it simply for the online play.
  • Pros: Strong create-a-player mode, Anna Kournikova.
  • Cons: Shallow single player mode, lack of precision.

  • 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. The singleplayer career mode might be a bit of a breeze at times, but the multiplayer hijinks will have you coming back again and again. Though there is still room for improvement, this is a damn fine tennis game that is sure to keep you entertained.

  • Excerpt: Tennis fans have long awaited for this point in time; the arrival of digital tennis that can return the serve provided by its opponent Virtua Tennis. Since Virtua Tennis last graced store shelves, tennis games have come and gone; all of which failed miserably in comparison. That is until now...Top Spin tennis is a breath of fresh air that not only donates good company to Virtua Tennis, it wipes the floor with the ancient title.

Virtua Tennis 3

XboxExclusive.com
30 November 1999
  • Summary: Virtua Tennis 3 is in no way trying to re-invent the wheel, but it does manage to keep the heart of the game fun. Plus, there are so many variations to play the game that there?s something for everyone. There?s always room for improvement, but if you?re looking for a solid tennis experience this definitely stands on the top of the heap.

  • Conclusion: The Verdict While Top Spin tennis is plagued by a few minor control and gameplay issues, it is still by far the best tennis game available so far on the XBox, and the closest anyone has come to re-creating the classic feel of Virtua Tennis. If you've got a few friends to play it against, or a few aussie top spin players on your Live friends list, you'll get a lot of enjoyment out of the Exhibition and Multiplayer modes.
