    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.

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

    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.

    Even if you don't have a 3D telly (and who does?) and despite the issues with the career mode, you still get a game that's enjoyable looks fantastic and plays great.

    A tennis game with focus on realism with great carreer mode and nice feel to the gameplay. Some small problems but overall a great game.

    Top Spin 4 lacks the polish of a truly fantastic game, but does have a potent balance between accessibility and depth. This fourth instalment is on all fronts better than its predecessor and works especially well online. It's a nice overture for the new tennis season.

    Action is tactically deep, yet ultimately staccato. [Issue#203, p.87]

    This is the best game I've been waiting for! The biggest roster ever! The only thing I don't like is that they removed Sharapova, if she's in the WTA Roster of this game, the WTA Roster kicks ass! You could make the classic Sharapova vs Serena Williams. The controls are very responsive and great. The My Player Mode and the World Tour Gameplay is a big improvement for the game. A must buy game for Xbox 360 and PS3 but for Wii, just go get Grand Slam Tennis for Wii because you might get frustrated with the graphics of TS4 on Wii but on PS3 and 360, this game kicks ass! This game is worth buying for! Expand

    El mejor juego de Tenis con mucha diferencia, es espectacular, lo recomiendo para los fans del tenis, jugando con playstation move es una pasada, nunca sera como el tenis real, pero te engancha de principio a fin, no quedras parar de jugar, sus modos son muy buenos y te hacen querer jugar mas y mas, el online es bastante...pasable, pero eso a mi me da igual, lo que engancha es su modo carrera, con torneos guapisimos y partidas entusiasmantes, juego muy recomendable.

    Good Graphics, great gameplay, accessible, online loads of fun! The career mode is pretty good and rewarding and the gignature moves are very true to life except for the serves. If you like tennis this is a MUST have but even if you don't like tennis, check this one out. Collapse

    It's a great game I can tell you that. It blows Top Spin 3 and Virtua Tennis 2009 out of the water. It's realistic but not boring. Cut scenes are awesome. The players look great. Season mode is actually quite fun. Expand

    The most realistic tennis sim ever made. Top spin 4 is miles ahead of it rivals. A shame its still an arcade but its a deep intense enthralling game which will keep you entertained. Expand

    Excelente juego de tenis, el mejor a la fecha. Es la mejor alternativa y la mejor opcion, seas un fan o no del tenis. Carrer mode es extenso y entretenido, muchas dificultades, excelente curva de aprendisaje. Expand

    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.
