Top Spin 3 NEW GEN TENNIS GAME!This game is very good specially if you like tennis. Its challenging and the controls are great, and very realistic. When you are playing in the videogame you can feel like if you were playing on a tennis court because of the great controls, all you need to do is do the Top Spin School and practice a while and you will have lots of fun. The graphics are fantastic, you can tell by just looking at the pictures. The sound its okay but you can always put your songs on, so it doesnt really matters. I like the variety of courts, they are a whole bunch and the real masters and grand slams. Career mode its also lots of fun because you create ur character and customize it however you want to. The only problem i found was the roster, this game doesnt have the best players like Djokovic, Nadal only appears on PS3, Davidenko, Ferre, Hewitt and many more, but its still a good game...im sure you will love it if u like tennis and even much better if u play it...so i truly recomend this to tennis fans.

Best Top SpinI found this game to be very much like real tennis and not the arcade tennis as in the first two topspins. No more of the meter bar special shots but you can still hit those kind of shots without the meter bar. You even have the extra angle shots as an option too. This is not your regular 4 button controls as in top spin 1 and 2. There is a lot more to take into account and the game involves a lot more timing. You can actually even hit real approach shots which we were never able to do in the other top spins. I definitely do suggest doing the top spin school to get used to the new buttons and new gameplay. Trust me, if you don't, you will find the game to be frustrating. Overall, as a tennis fan, I love this game for it is more simulation based and not "arcady".

Forget What You Know About Top Spin!This game has obviously gotten a little flack about changing the controls around but not to worry. If you are looking for the most realistic tennis game available, you've found it. Yes the controls are different but once you begin to master them it becomes a very rewarding system. It makes sense finally how timing comes into play in a real tennis game. After you play this you realize how mind numbing the old scheme was. The player creation tools are very extensive, much like tiger woods. The music could be better it definitely gets old fast, but it dosn't affect how good this game is. The visuals in this game are a huge leap above what top spin was before. The player models look pretty realistic and you actually see them sweating through thier shirts and see their faces getting red as you play. There is also now a heart monitor to show how your stamina is holding up. I would definately recommend this game to anyone looking for the real deal. If you are just looking for a casual tennis game to pop in with your friends from time to time I would say to go ahead and pass on this one. It takes some time to unlearn your old ways and enlighten yourself with the new style that tennis games will be copying for years to come. But if you're in for the long haul I definately recommend this game over any other tennis title out.

THIS GAME IS A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!Dear any player who is planning to rent or buy Top Spin 3, i recommend that you do not play this game. As an experienced Top Spin 1 and 2 player, i was planning on this being an amazing game but it came to be the complete opposite. The controls are the worst in any game I have ever played and because of that the challenge becomes harder. When creating a character it does not save some of the things you add such as height, but otherwise creating a character is lots of fun and very good. The sound is great, but the selection of songs is decent. Your opponents, like you also do not function very well in the in game play. They move very slowly and so does the ball. When hitting the ball you must hold down the button but it does not tell you how hard you hit the ball, so if you hold it for too long then it goes out. Also if not in the perfect position and you don't let go of the button on time to hit the ball, it will travel right past you and you will lose the point, so watch your timing. There is also no meter on the serve like in Top Spin 2 so you never know unless your timing is perfect if it will go in or not and which even in that case you do not know. The left analog stick which is used to place the ball in certain spots on the court during the point and serve also does not work at all. The ball will go straight even if the analog stick is as far to one direction as it can go. Now 2K8 has had its selection of good games but this is definitely not one of them. They should have put more time into making the game to adjust these things.
