    The game play is really nice a lovely feel to it ,controls are much simpler than version 3 but at the same time still require good timing which is what tennis requires. It looks and moves beautifully , character animations are very smooth and lifelike.

It looks and moves beautifully , character animations are very smooth and lifelike. The core of the game is the career mode which is brilliant, nice and deep , giving you a chance to develop your character in a way that suits your playing style. It does have few faults , a few sound issues on court sometimes, there is no commentary , which i think it badly needs, and it can be WAY too easy on the normal difficulty, Winning sets 6-0 all the time when your playing players that are several ranks above you is boring..ramping it up to hard provides a much better challenge. The problem is it becomes too easy on normal and TOO hard on hard when you face the likes of Nadal you'll be lucky to win a game. The developers didnt get the difficulty right, so after a while you'll put this game down and prob wont play it until you get challenged by a family member. Rent at best. Expand

    Top Spin3 was great - this is disappointing for me. On the basis that it is too similar to TS3, seems to have worse graphics than TS3, has terrible Move functionality and just generally does not have oomph for me (kinda like a Henman serve of old!).

    Still better than Virtua Tennis which makes it the best tennis game on console - unfortunately!

    Top Spin 4 is probably one of the best tennis games ever made mainly by its simulatorish atmosphere and absolutely marvellous career game. The controls work like a charm with pad, but unfortunately the Move support doesn't work as well as it should. Motion controls make the game extremely hard. AI doesn't cut any slack and therefore there's no error for controller based errors. [June 2011]
  2. Unfortunately the Move controls have turned out to be a real flop. Rather than the same sort of control over your racquet as, say, the ping pong in Sports Champions, Top Spin 4's controls feel significantly dumbed down. There really doesn't appear to be any connection between your player's arm and your actual arm – backhands you perform in your living room will be regularly interpreted as forehands by the game and there doesn't appear to be much difference between a spirited slog and a apathetic wiggle of the wrist. [May 2011 p.77]

    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.
