Top Spin 4
My more extensive output.
Topspin 4 to me is one of the biggest busts for Wii. The big hype March 2011 was how it showed up Virtua Tennis 4. Well for the Wii it was quite Vice Versa. The graphics look like there from a dreamcast, pasted on the guys. Virtua Tennis did a great job reaching the full potential. Don't try to reach realism by adding rinkles and pasting it. Make it clean cut to achieve better presentation. Topspin didn't. It certaintly did for the gameplay in the other console versions. For this, the motion controls are scrapped together. Horrible. The response is horrible, no better than TopSpin 3, and this is 3 years after. With those 2 combined you get a game that looks nearly identical to a launch title for the Sega Genesis. Career mode is pretty cheap. Only 7 tournaments are liscensed. Even Wimbledon isn't. Talk about sucking. Then there are only about 10 players on each side, but since there is no ATPPA or WTAPA, getting individual rights is hard, and you can't blame 2k for not getting it. There is no online multiplayer. Even Grand Slam Tennis has that. The character models, controls, graphics, features, and frustrations make this game unworth buying. Virtua Tennis 4, in all it's flaws, is a much better choice for Wii gamers. Heck, I'd rather play Wii Tennis than this c**p.
NO ONLINE PLAY - DO NOT BUY
I got Top Spin 4 a week ago and have already lost interest in the game, because of the simple fact that it has no online play. The factor of playing online with other people is what makes a tennis game more attractive. Who wants to play against the computer if you can actually play against another human being who has to be able to move, think and have a game plan.Playing against the machine is boring and just does not give me the satisfaction then playing with another person on the other site. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME - NO ONLINE PLAY - WAIT AND SEE WHAT VIRTUA TENNIS 4
NEEDS TO BETTER THAN TS3
Top Spin 3 was pitiful compared to Grand Slam tennis and Virtua Tennis 2009. Why? Because it didn't have RAFAEL NADAL!!!! and no wii motion plus. Every tennis game should now have wii motion plus and Top Spin 4 should too. It also needs better tournaments like the Sony Ericson, Indian Wells, Monte Carlo, Rome Masters, AEGON Championships, and other top tournaments. And the controls need to be better they have to use what Grand Slam tennis did and make it better. Also good graphics. COME ON I WANT AN AWESOME TENNIS GAME WITH A TON OF TOURNAMENTS!!
Didn't live up to the hype.
I was done with this game the day I got it. The game doesn't have good response to movement at all, and the graphics are not good. The MyPlayer mode is not in-depth. Don't buy it and waste $50.
This looks good and it has been such a long time so I'm excited!
