Top Spin? TOP STUFF!!
on 12 November 2003
There's little to complain about with this game:beautiful and intuitive gameplay, impressive graphics and what seems to be an involving and lengthy career mode. Prior to receiving the game I did have doubts that it wouldn't compare favourably with 'Virtua Tennis 1&2' on the Dreamcast, but I needn't have worried - this is a superior product in nearly every important repect. While not having played 'Live' yet (I want to get my own personalised player 'fully loaded' first!) I'm chomping at the bit to get stuck in! Meanwhile I have been more than content on working on improving my character stats and seeing what accessories I can buy (which is a neat and interesting diversion). Regardless of of its X-Box Live compatability (though on the whole great according to other reviewers) this is one of those games that just cries out to be played against your mates - it's ideal pre and post-pub material (or any time really as the phrase 'pick up and play' could have been invented for this game). This ease of use however belies the nuances and subtlety of the control system which, with practice, proves to be a deeply rewarding and satisfying experience.
Just don't be surprised when the swearing starts and the joypads start flyng!
