Re: Top Spin 3/Smash Court Tennis 3 Waiting thread - both hit stores June, 2008

Some interesting facts about SCT3 :
he game has a variety of attitudes for different situations (winning point, ball called out, etc.) from which you can choose with the four face buttons. Did that feature already exist in the PSP version?
Anyways, take a good look, TS developers. Instead of taking that feature further, you got rid of it.

The player animations aren't very fluid, but it remains to be seen if TS 3 can do any better.

The game might be slower than TS 2, so nothing for VT 3 fans.

Negative: The scoreboard which appears before serve is way too big.

Attitudes after a point
--> On the right: Y = Touch (probably your doubles partner), B = Taunt, A = Calm, X = Happy
--> On the left: Y = Talk under doubles partners, B = Furious, A = Calm, X = Sad


Attitudes after a close ball was called out
--> Y = Complain, A = Calm, X = Sad

So much more excited for Smash Court than Topspin...

I'll buy both though.

I'm kinda more excited about SCT3 too
Mostly because the lack of information about TS3 and lazy developers.

These are the most delayed games in history ... another failure of the WTA and ATP ... video games, which may be the best way to promote your sport, and neither association has a game that includes all players. Why - because there isn't a union so companies have to try and sign players individually. SAD!!!

The attitudes were not included on the PSP so this is a new addition to SCT3, a fun feature when your playing with friends!

The game is definitely slower than most, but it gives you more opportunity to explore the shot options and I actually enjoyed it. I just hope they make the doubles more difficult because it was way too easy in PSP version and no challenge at all.

SCT almost has an old school charm to it which is refreshing when compared to all the gloss of VT and Topspin

Re: Top Spin 3/Smash Court Tennis 3 Waiting thread - both hit stores June, 2008

Thanks for the link

It seems pretty similar to the last games of the series, the characters look pretty slow and lumbering. That was what spoiled SCT2 for me, the fact that it was so hard to play a consistent serve and volley game against a good opponent.


Anyway Ive been thinking about what I´d like from these games, and since I have officialy given up for for any WII TENNIS 2 type game to ever come out, here is what Id like for these 2 games!:

A lob shot which works in the same way as either SUPER TENNIS or TOP SPIN

A slice shot which is actually useful (rare in tennis games) as in SUPER TENNIS

A timing system which determines placement such as DREAM MATCH TENNIS

A risk shot system where hard shots can go out if not done well like SMASH COURT 2

A drop shot system like the one in TOP SPIN 1

A serve system like SUPER TENNIS

Use of players real grunts as in WTA TOUR TENNIS GC PAL

Be able to hit crosscourt winners from way back outside the tramlines like SUPER TENNIS!

Players that have very distinct playing styles like TOP RANK TENNIS Gameboy

Less focus on amazing animations and more focus on ball physics!!!

Amazing and wacky powermoves that interrupt gameplay, insultlingly pathetic motion "controls" that distance rather than connect you more to the game, a game with plenty of glitches, a non existent difficulty level, players that float instead of running, a game where making an error is highly difficult, where topsin shots and slice seem to have the very same function, and just a general feeling of being ripped off, just like SEGA SUPERSTARS TENNIS!!!

i would highly doubt it, sounds like a decent list of events this time though with over 35 events, could be interesting.

SCT3 does have a pretty good drop shot and lob and I have the odd passing shot with the slice . It also has a risky flat shot - and you have to be in position to time your shot well. So there are aspects you have asked for that are incorporated in the PSP version so I imagine it will be similar in xbox 360.

Fave recent players: .. Seles .. Hingis .. Serena .. Venus .. Federer .. Roddick .. Hewitt .. Haas .. Rafter .. Safin .. Radwanska ..
60s/70s: Evonne Goolagong .. Francoise Durr .. Chris Evert .. Margaret Court .. Nancy Richey .. Maria Bueno .. Billie-Jean King .. Lesley Turner .. Virginia Wade .. Ken Rosewall .. Rod Laver .. Bjorn Borg ..
Entertainers: .. Diana Ross .. Dionne Warwick .. Shirley Bassey .. Randy Crawford .. Burt Bacharach .. ABBA .. Woody Allen .. Maggie Smith .. Gena Rowlands .. Judy Davis .. Heath Ledger .. Little Britain ..
Inspiration: .. Jeshua Ben Josepth .. Conversations with God .. Abraham with Esther & Jerry Hicks .. P'taah ..

Re: Top Spin 3/Smash Court Tennis 3 Waiting thread - both hit stores June, 2008

With the slice shot I prefer it to be a shot which can get you out of trouble when you are pushed wide. Most games when you are wide only let you stab at the ball which makes for an easy put away for the rival. In Super Tennis for example, though, you could be wayyyyyy out of court but hit a great, LOW slice that makes for a tricky volley, and also gives you time to get back into a point. Also, in that game the slice is great as a simple rallying tool, it can really form part of your gamestyle.
