Summary: I prefered the previous version of this game, where you could perform easier risk shots and overall playability was way better. I also don't like the pro players included Federer is the only one that's cool, there's no Agassi or Sampras anymore. As for career mode, I would have prefered much more gear to choose from and more customization for the character. I personally give this game a 6.
Summary: I started out in career mode and the first season was just too difficult and I lost match after match. As someone who knows how to play competive tennis it was near impossible to hit a winner or a passing shot. As I got better it was still hard to hit a good passing shot. After about 2 weeks of playing daily I never had one ace.
Summary: graohically very nice and all! I guess I have been spoiled by Wii! so! the gameplay is no where close to the Wii system! Sorry to be comparing but I think sports game should cannot be played on traditional controls !it takes half off the fun and the Excercise! I would be looking for topspin for Wii!
Summary: players hitting in no mans land shows how this game is nothing like real tennis.everybody on xbox live hits in no mans land and in the game thats the best way to win points.but in real tennis no mans land is death.you should either be inside the servers box to make a volley or behind the baseline.other problems with this arcade style game you cant get in close to make a big server pay for hitting a huge serve by using his pace off his serve to send back a fast return and...
Summary: Game is very fun to play, but is a bit too easy. It is far too easy to win against the other computer players with just a little bit of intelligence. A very fun two player game for myself and my friends. A decent amount of depth to the game in career mode, but replayability is limited due to the ease of beating your initial foes in career mode. The very good players are pretty solid though.
A good tennis game, but disappointing in some aspects

Summary: First off, let me say that I am a huge tennis fan. When I first starting to purchase console systems, I would pluck out every tennis game I could find. When I finally came upon Top Spin (the original) I was blown away at the gameplan. The graphics were solid, but the movements of the players, their strokes, the stadiums, were amazing! So when I heard about Top Spin 2, I rushed to get it. Overall, it is a small upgrade to the original, with some really annoying flaws.
Summary: I believe that Top Spin 2 for the Xbox 360 is a fun game to play. The best option for game play is the career mode. I do beleive that the game could have been better in a couple of ways. The first of which is it needs better camera angle selection. When on the far court it is hard to see the incoming shot correctly. I also believe that the game play is to easy.
Best tennis game out there, but could still be improved...

Summary: PROS: 1. Character Design- one of the most fun aspects of the game is creating new characters and designing everything about them right down to the last detail. 2. Inclusion of Pro Characters- finally they added some current stars to a tennis game (Federer, Roddick, Venus, Sharapova, Hewitt, Blake, Davenport) 3. Graphics- some of the best backgrounds and rendering that I've seen in a tennis game 4.
