Top Spin 4 – Review (360, PS3)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: mature-gaming reviews the latest edition of the Top Spin franchise. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t usually play tennis games.  It’s not that I don’t love the game itself, more that other sports games normally capture my attention first. With the arrival of Top Spin 4 through my letterbox, my feelings started to change about tennis titles, Top Spin 4 in particular.

Inside Hotwire 3D
25 May 2011
  • Conclusion: Though Top Spin 4 is highly praised by our staff, there are a couple of letdowns that should be noted. The RB button that manages speed is relatively clunky. It is unresponsive and has no bearing effect no matter how hard we tried to get our player back to a particular position. Secondly, the skills gained don't seem to have significant difference whether you are a starting athlete or a long-time star.

Test Top Spin 4

Generation NT
3 May 2011
  • Conclusion: Top Spin 4 fait une fois de plus un pas vers la perfection. L'accessibilité plus accentuée du gameplay ne dénature en rien l'esprit du jeu. Le gameplay reste toujours aussi technique, tactique, mais les nouveaux venus pourront s'intégrer plus ou moins facilement. Les habitués eux, devront se remettre en jambe et explorer à loisir toutes les possibilités du mode Carrière. Toujours aussi complet, Top Spin 4 brille par son contenu étoffé, extrêmement riche.
  • Pros: Un gameplay plus accessible, Toujours aussi technique, L'animation et le réalisme des joueurs, Contenu complet, Les possibilités nombreuses du mode Carrière
  • Cons: Temps de chargement trop nombreux, Une modélisation pas toujours joyeuse

Top Spin 4

True achievements
2 May 2011
  • Conclusion: During multiplayer matches the game mechanics proves to be very robust and rarely allows tactical exploits very common to tennis games. Pros: - Superb gameplay - Easy, intuitive control scheme - Nice online mode - Fun career mode Cons: - Lack of references to real life tennis tour - Limited host of players - Player gets to max level too fast, make later rewards feel bland

Top Spin 4 Review

VideoGamer.com
29 April 2011
  • Excerpt: With Top Spin 3, 2K Sports delivered a tennis game that didn't play like all the others. It wasn't just a re-skinned Virtua Tennis, instead offering a more nuanced control scheme that relied heavily on precise timing. Almost three years later, Top Spin 4 tweaks the system and introduces a number of helpful guides in an attempt to better convey the game of tennis.

  • Excerpt: The sun is beaming down onto a sizzling hot tennis court. The ball is tossed into the air, drifting against the Earth’s gravitational pull. In the blink of an eye, the player swings his racket, smashing it into the ball and serving it to his opponent. “Fault!” The anxiety builds. Losing this point would be game, set and match. Will you whither under the pressure?

2K Czech goes back to the drawing board... with fantastic results

GamesRadar
7 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Still, the options are there should one want to show off their extra tech, though anyone that must do without will hardly be hurting. Instead, the core game itself is the draw, and thanks to a control scheme that delivers enough information to keep every shot interesting while never reneging on the promise of easy-to-play/tough-to-master, Top Spin 4 emerges as an absolutely killer tennis sim and one worthy of being considered one of the deepest and most rewarding seen...
  • Pros: Gorgeous animations, and lots of 'em, Extremely lengthy Career Mode, Season-like Online Mode
  • Cons: Weird alien-like faces, Consist shots can be difficult, Clinical, boring presentation

5 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Top Spin 4 is a well-crafted game which will appeal to tennis enthusiasts as well as fans of sports titles with intensely competitive multiplayer modes. If you have dozens of hours to sink into its slow but rewarding career mode then you’ll be treated to a great virtualisation of an amateur’s rise to the zenith of world tennis.
