4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to learn, but fun once you know how to play October 8, 2008
By P. Soto
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is not like most other tennis games out there. Specifically, when compared to a game like Virtua Tennis 3, the learning curve is much harder. The first week was spent mistiming the swings and either missing completely or performing really weak returns that made me wonder how I could make Federer look so clumsy. Where virtua tennis allows for fun pickup games with people that might not have played the game before, it's painful to play against or watch someone that hasn't learned how to play top spin.

However, after a few weeks of playing the game, I'm consistently able to perform strong serves and groundstrokes. The game has a more realistic feel to it: The characters move at a slower and natural pace, when compared to virtua tennis. Off-balance shots you take when running to the ball, have a chance of hitting the net, even if you time things well.

The online play isn't stellar, but at least it exists. The main problem I have with online play is that against the majority of people I play, their connections are laggy. The lag only manifests when you are about to swing at the ball, which sometimes causes me to mistime the release (your player and the ball basically stutter, as the game tries to synchronize the information on your swing to the other player). Another problem with online play is that there is no way to specify that you want to play against someone on your PS3 friends list, so you always get paired against a random player.

Overall, once you learn how to use the controls for the game, I give this game 5 stars for non-online play, but 3 stars for online play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good game January 15, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am new to video gaming, but am a former expert tennis player, and have downloaded the demo to Virtua tennis 3 to compare.
for someone who actually plays tennis and is willing to work at this game, there is no comparison, Topspin is absolutely completely better and more realistic as a tennis game. Virtua 3 is cartoonish and annoying.
It is harder and you have to work at the timing to get it, it is pretty counterintuitive in the beginning. You totally flail and fail for quite a while.
I'll note the problems from a tennis player's perspective:

Difficult to work in stroke type (topspin, slice) into the game because you have to press the button determining stroke type so early before the shot. Not realistic to have to plan the type of stroke so early. But simply using a single stroke, and "working" a ralley to move the opponent around is the strong point of the game.

Net play is not very satisfying, difficult to learn to aim volleys, simply does not translate that experience of the game very well.

The tennis lessons are barely adequate in teaching the skills needed to play the game, lack sufficient explanation of how the game works, offer cryptic and confusing feedback on what went wrong, and often leave you stuck in the middle of a lession because you can't hit some small target in exactly the way they wanted. Although necessary, the lessons are barely tolerable. After playing this game for a month, still uncertain as to the range of control the player has for aiming, controlling depth of shots-- no systematic way to find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice game June 25, 2008
By Alex C
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got the game yesterday and have been playing it on an off since and it's really nice. The graphics are really nice and player details are the best I've ever seen in a tennis game. The controls will take some time to get used to but once I get a hang of it I'll do much better. The create a player feature is really nice also whereas you can create any body shape you want, just nice. I really buy it for the online feature but have yet to used it as I'll still trying to get used to the controls.

Anyway, great game and it was worth the wait. The soundtrack is also nice and I love the fact they don't play annoying music as a default in the matches.

4.0 out of 5 stars Takes some time but fun. March 10, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is great. I have played it before on other systems and love it just as much on my new PS3.

Bad first - The most annoying thing to me was starting out the game, the timing is tough to get down and it took a good week of playing to cut down on just straight up missing the ball which was really frustrating at first. Now that I have played the game for over a month I really enjoy the gameplay. I like the timing system because it allows a swing of momentum, you can just hold and swing away, leads to tougher matches against the top players. The dropshot is awful and nearly impossible to make effecting during a match. I can't think of a time where I even tried to use it.
Worst- Scoring during the matches... during your career the matches (before you are a pro) are only 1 set 3 games. I hated it. You couldn't get into the match at all when you were just starting out, you break serve and its pretty much over before you know it. When you turn pro it goes to 2 sets 3 games each and a super tiebreak to decide the winner which is better but I would like to see 6 games per set. I know it would be longer but makes it way better.

Other than those few problems I have with the game which even if someone told me about I would still have gotten the game because the I love the gameplay, and is by far the best game for tennis out there. Closing thing to the real stuff without looking like an arcade game. Its worth playing because once you do get better at timing it is alot of fun!

Do buy and enjoy!

The game is very good. But I think that it needs more players caracters, it has no Wimbledon tournament and is a bit complex in terms of techniques and strokes.
