    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]

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

    The game all tennis fans have been waiting for. Top Spin 4 is the most authentic tennis game to grace the PS3 and is head and shoulders aboveThe game all tennis fans have been waiting for. Top Spin 4 is the most authentic tennis game to grace the PS3 and is head and shoulders above its competition. Considering how average previous installments of the Top Spin series have been the improvements this game has made are incredible. Gameplay has never been more fun and realisitc. You find yourself getting absorbed in endless rallys back and forth. Like its predacessors the shot sytem is same as ever but this time feels a lot smoother especially when you master the different kind of shots. The powerful shots can leave you in awe or sheer frustration at going inches wide out of play. And its this and the precision shots that leave you engrossed and wanting more. Career mode is great fun and TS's best to date as you create your own player and take him a journey to become the number 1 tennis player. Visually its superb! It encapsulates each individual tremendously well meaning that the player likeness is amazing! From Nadal's reaction to winning a mammoth point to Murray shouting "C'mon" after taking a crucial point it really is fantastic. It has most licensed arena's apart from Wimbledon and from what I could tell they seemed pretty much on the mark with the crowds creating a good atmosphere given the fact the game still lacks commentary which sets it back rather than pushing it forward. Online it works really well and is very entertaining. Top Spin 4 really is the pinnacle of all tennis games and leaves its challengers massively adrift as Virtua Tennis is slowly but surely becoming stale but this game revitalizes Top Spin and with everything this game offers as an all round package it really is impressive and addictive making it unmissable for tennis fans and all gamers its certainly worth a look!

    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.

    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.
