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...
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.
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.

Summary: I found this game to be just 'okay'. There are better tennis games out there. The controls seemed to be a little unforgiving at times. Online play seems to be non-existent and the party mode games require at least 2 players in order to play.
Summary: top spin 2 is a realistic tennis game compared to the virtua tennis series. there is a lot more depth to the game such as career mode you cn enter minr, major, master and grandslam tournaments against 199 different AI. whereas in virtua tennis you can play level 1,2,3 or 4 tournaments and you can only play against 24 pro male stars and around 10 female tennis pros.
