  1. If you’re looking for a faithful recreation of tennis, you’ve found it. With immense attention to detail, Top Spin 3 is a must have for any tennis nutter.
  2. Top Spin 3 may seem hard to master, and effectively it is. It demands patience and commitment, but rewards the player with excellent play.
  3. Top Spin 3 is by far the best tennis sim on the market, but there's still plenty of room for improvement.
  4. Everybody who just can’t get enough of Tennis Games, should give this game a shot. Everyone else would be well advised to stick with Virtua Tennis.
  5. Top Spin 3 latches onto back-to-basics tennis, focusing its full attention on the play, power, and flow of the sport. The result is fairly straightforward but strong enough for anyone to pick up and appreciate the sport for what it is.
  6. 71
    As you might have predicted, this is not for fans of pick-up-and-play titles and neither is it necessarily for fans of other tennis games, but for those with the determination and dexterity of an actual tennis player, it offers plenty.
  7. 40
    Though it has numerous pros, courts, and options - including a player creation section that would make World Of Warcraft jealous - and looks as good as Wimbledon on NBC, it is ultimately undone by the most obvious of gaming mistakes: bad controls.
