This game could have been soooo good. As a massive fan of Wii sports Tennis, I was expecting the same level of immersive gameplay and fun, but with better graphics and more choice of players, locations etc. Well, the players and tournaments are there,and the graphics are pretty good...but the controls are just rubbish!
For a start, I'm left-handed and, guess what?, it doesn't have the facility to change from right to left-handed. Also, in Wii Sports Tennis, you hold the remote much like the handle of a tennis racqet, but in Topspin you have to hold it with your thumb along one edge and your index finger on the 'B' button. It just feels all wrong.
Then there's the fact that you have to attach the Nunchuck to move your player about. I appreciate that it gives you more control over where you want to position your player, but the lead keeps on getting in the way. As if that's not bad enough, you also have to use the nunchuck to position where you want the ball to go, once you've positioned your player and are making the backswing to make your shot.
Lastly, it's really, really, slow.
All in all, £30 down the toilet.
