Top Spin 2

True achievements
3 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The X button nets you a slice shot, which flies low and fast and is great for crossing up your opponent, while the B button delivers a topspin shot that flies straight and bounces high but moves fast and can slip right past opponents who aren't on their toes. The Y button is used for lob shots, which are to be used sparingly but can be very potent against aggressive opponents apt to ride the net.

Top Spin 2 Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Sunshine… thwack… strawberries… thwack… the smell of fresh cut grass… thwack… a flash of optic yellow and a puff of chalk dust as a tennis ball smacks off the baseline. ‘Yeah!’ you shout, pumping your fist, ‘C’mon!’ It’s been three years since Top Spin first appeared on the XBox. Now, in plenty of time for Wimbledon, Top Spin 2 goes all next generation on the XBox 360. First impressions are very favourable.

Top Spin 2 Review

  • Excerpt: There's just something about Tennis that makes it a great sport for video games. The best recreations of it can see two evenly matched players slogging it out for hours, working hard for every opening to take the upper hand in a rally. Given that the sport itself seems like a simple case of a ball being hit back and forth, the fact that most tennis sims get it wrong must suggest that is isn't that simple at all.

  • Excerpt: With the release of 2003’s Top Spin , developers Power and Magic put up the first real challenge to Sega’s all-conquering Virtua Tennis series. Many a title has come and gone since, but nothing has ever come as close to claiming the title in the Tennis genre as the Xbox original did. With Top Spin 2 , the team are ramping things up for the Xbox 360, and are looking to lay waste to the claims that the game is just a graphical update.

Top Spin 2 Review

Xbox Evolved
29 November 2006
  • Summary: Top Spin 2 offers a much improved, although not completely new sequel. With all the gameplay mechanics still there, and good graphics, PAM have offered a ‘faster’ sequel, and one that should not be passed up.
  • Pros: Great Gameplay, refined sequel
  • Cons: Not a total improvement.

  • Excerpt: Fans of the original Top Spin, which was released on PC, PS2 and Xbox, will possibly be a mite irked at the appearance of a Top Spin 2 for Xbox 360. Why no PC/PS2/Xbox version this time around, eh... Ho-hum… For those lucky/affluent enough to be in possession of a 360, everything that made Top Spin such a great game is back and made even better. The player-creator is upgraded with whole new Digital Identity.

  • Summary: Despite the fact that Top Spin 2 lacks the production polish you'd expect a next-generation title to offer, it makes up for it with some solid gameplay. It's controls are intuitive and easy to learn, allowing you to jump right in and play a quick match, while not compromising the depth of moves and shots. If you want to go a bit deeper into the game, you'll find a number of interesting techniques to master.

  • Excerpt: Top Spin 2, an introduction. Without any doubt one of the best sports games on the original Xbox was Top Spin. In fact along with the Virtua Tennis series it's easily one of the best Tennis games on any platform to date. Of course it was always going to be a strong possibility that a sequel would arrive and with the launch of the Xbox 360 there was a console waiting to take tennis games to the next level, at least in terms of graphical quality.

  • Excerpt: Lleyton Hewitt, Roger Federer, Andy Roddick and Venus Williams star in Pams latest tennis title, Top Spin 2 for the Xbox 360. While this latest title doesnt introduce any remarkably new features into the mix, the quality and impressive execution of what is on offer combines to form one of the best tennis games ever created.
