  • Summary: Top Spin takes 16 of the top professional tennis players in the world including Maria Sharapova, Roger Federer, Venus Williams and Carlos Moya and puts them in gamers' hands to create the most realistic tennis game ever. Players must work their way up from an unranked amateur with no skills, to a top ranked player in the world with huge endorsement deals. Top Spin further pushes the edge of competition as the only PlayStation 2 tennis game playable online. [2K Games] Expand

  1. Made from the same people that gave us the rather loveable "Links 2004," this really is a game, let alone a tennis game, that you shouldn’t be without.
  2. It's definitely the best PS2 Tennis game out there. But if you already own the Xbox game there's really no reason to switch.

    A fun tennis game, though aside from the play mechanics it feels somewhat dated, and maybe even slow paced due to its lengthy load times.
  4. Most of the magic of the original version of the game was the presentation coupled with the online play. With 50% of that largely taken out of the equation, and no extras two years later, this is just a bastardized version of a very good Xbox game.
  5. The sublime Xbox tennis game looks set for a turn on the PS2, but becomes almost unplayable due to its obscenely long loading times and visual glitches.
  6. The characters look alright, but I honestly think they could've done better.
  7. If you’re really hard-up for tennis on the PS2 and have a few friends to play with online or off, go for it. If you don’t fit the prior statement, don’t even bother.

    It is an amazing game on XBOX, so i think that it deserves a ten.
