    Surely there will be better tennis simulators in coming years, but after many hours with Top Spin 4, we can't imagine how to improve the recreation of the sport with such fun.

    Although the detail of the players improved quite a lot from previous entries, there is still somewhat a lack of polish to the backgrounds and some specific players.

    Top Spin 4 is one of the best tennis games on the PlayStation 3. The game contains a lot of different modes and it plays really nice. Besides that it's a bit a shame the game doesn't offer enough different tennis players.

    2K Czech serves up an ace with Top Spin 4 through authentic gameplay and animations, plus a new streamlined approach throughout the entire game.

    Overall I'm very impressed with Top Spin 4. Whilst it doesn't bring anything new to the table, everything it does bring is refined to within an inch of its life. It looks nice, it plays superbly, and it is deeper than a conversation with Professor Brian Cox. Your move, SEGA.

    If you like tennis you can't miss Top Spin 4, a game that improves the last chapter of the series in every possible way. Like Tina Turner said in 1989, this is "simply the best" tennis game of all time.

    Top Spin 4 offers a lot of emotion on the court. The controls are very good but you will need a lot of time to master timing in every situation.

    A great simulation, better every year. Control on the athletes is absolute, and fun for the fans is guaranteed.

The career mode is pretty good and rewarding and the gignature moves are very true to life except for the serves.

    This is a chance game. There is a draw every time you hit the ball. Whoever wins it's not the best player but the luckiest.

    Graphics are great, sound is great, general features are great. But these mean nothing without a good gameplay, which this game lacks.

    I miss the first two Virtua Tennis games, also Top Spin 1 & 2 are better games than this one.
