The game was amazing the graphics are great and it is easy to master. I have never really been into tennis but Im hooked on this game, the career mode on this game is really fun and if you really need help they have an in depth training mode on there too, this game is the best!

Great graphics and players' movements. Very realistic feel- great deal of your game will rely on anticipation. If you moved wrong way or out of position your return will be imposible, just like in real tennis when opponent catches you on a 'wrong foot'. New way of hitting and timing ,as mentioned above, takes few hours to get used to but with good coordination should not be a problem.
I'm good in tennis and i like this game. I started to play it on hard my first time(to give you comparison on how you'd match ). If you are 'Mario Tennis' like player- this game is not for you. But if you look for a tennis simulator- this is it.

I am not a long time fan of tennis, by any means. In fact, I don't even watch or follow tennis in the slightest. However, I found both top spin 3 and top spin 4 to be very enjoyable games.

The character selection this year is much greater, and it is now much more fun and easier to customize your character for career mode.

Top spin 3 was a great game, but the graphics were lacking, and it just felt like an un finished game to me.

I had no such trouble with top spin 4. The career mode moves a lot smoother, and isnt nearly as dull and repetitive as it was in top spin 3.

The addition of the meter below your character is awesome,in top spin three you had to eye ball it and you couldnt get a real feel for exactly how well you were going to hit the ball until you saw the result.

the movement of the characters has been cleaned up, in the past top spin games it felt sluggish to change direction, which is key for a tennis game, but the lack of animation added to your change of direction left some players wondering why exactly they were moving slow when changing direction.

all in all this is a solid improvement over top spin 3. If you enjoyed top spin 3, buy this game. If you haven't played top spin games before, rent it and try it out, you will be surprised at how fun at tennis game actually is.
