I love sports games. I played the heck out of topspin and topspin 2, I bought these games as soon as they came out and loved them. So I figured just go out and buy TS3, and I did. Big mistake. People are saying the timing system is nice and it makes the game more interesting. I feel it was just a hindrance. When i play a sports game i want it to be challenging but i want the challenge from the AI not the controls. I seriously gave this game half an hour and i was done. I hope 2k goes back top a fun enjoyable experience and not a college class lesson. Maybe I should change it from one and done to half and hour and done.

this game takes a century to learn how to play. I just wanna have fun and play a video game. but this game makes u learn how to play tennis to the fullest. its the hardest game i ever played. this game is harder than playing tennis for real.

when you first start to play this game , your gonna be thinking what the heck is this, can`t even hit the ball right well alone win a game, but be patient , spend an hr in the training school , learn the new controls , then start your career, play a few games , build up your stats. thats when this game actually is`nt all that bad, esp once you get to the junior tour. graghic`s are pretty good , not the best on the 360, but better than topspin 2. if your after an arcadey type tennis game , this may not be for you , much more of a sim than last year`s.overall i think it`s the best tennis game on the 360 so far, career mode could have been more indepth, buying stuff from the store has no effect on your tennis skills other than cosmetics`s, would be nice to spend more money on a racket and it helps somehow on the court, or new shoes mean you can run faster,the only thing you`ll really buy stuff for is the achievement points you get for unlocking 300 items.longevity wise , this game should last awhile , career mode has a fair few hrs in it, plus there`s the tournament mode, in which you have to win all 24 to get achievement points. but therein lies the problem , it`s only tennis, hit ball over net then repeat until your done. if your a fan of tennis then you should enjoy this game, if not then rent first.
