They don't all look the same, but I agree that TS3's animations were horrid in comparison to TS4, yet I think the better gameplay makes TS3 just that much better.

I agree, but I don't see it as a negative. Yes, TS3 is MUCH harder than TS4, but doesn't that make it funner?

I played allot of TS3 in the ITST tour back when I had a PS3 and I can tell you there has not been ONE console tennis game with as much variety as TS3, the possibilities of shots, or ways to win are endless, not to mention the different stroke mechanisms ACTUALLY make a difference in the game unlike TS4.

Re: BOMBSHELL!!! Top Spin 4 announced!

I'm beginning the get get more into the rallies. I played an exhibition match against Serena on very hard, and after going down 0-4 with a double break I was able to turn it around, and win 2-6 6-3 6-2. The key for me is to stay aggressive on my serve, and try to get in their service games with control shots until I can take control of the points with power shots.

I'm still totally lost on serve though. Sometimes I hit perfect and it's 180, and sometimes it's perfect and it's only 140.

So should I buy TS4. I have TS3 and I'm pretty good at it. I love the difficulty but I really wanna play ppl online and not just play the intergame tour because it starts to get boring playing the computer

Definitely. Sadly the TS3 online community has pretty much died.

The online in TS4 is better than TS3 too actually.

The online will. The offline not at all. It might take you a while to get used to the difference in buttons but other than that not at all.

Also, there is an online tour www.intertopspintour.net that you can join once you feel you've gotten good at the game.

Re: BOMBSHELL!!! Top Spin 4 announced!

I actually think TS3 has the same problem as TS4 with the patterns. Both of them are lacking in that department, and with the risk shots in TS3, it was too easy to just put shots when I knew they would. And those graphics were horrid, TS4 is better in that regard.

But even Tennis Elbow is predictable, so we'll never win I guess

Re: BOMBSHELL!!! Top Spin 4 announced!

I don't like the rallies in TS4. Dunno if anyone else has a problem with the fact that if you hit cross court, the CPU hits down the line and if you hit down the line the CPU hits cross court.

Re: BOMBSHELL!!! Top Spin 4 announced!

Hey does anyone know if the Top Spin Finals in the female player career mode change venues throughout your career or are they always held in Madrid?

Re: BOMBSHELL!!! Top Spin 4 announced!

Apparently their server broke down and some of the uppdates they've done in the past is gone so they are trying to fix this and I guess some other things - so there's nothing you can do to fix it. You can still play online matches but not in the world tour.

Re: BOMBSHELL!!! Top Spin 4 announced!

I'm finally starting to figure this game out.

I won the Australian Open, beating Wozniacki 3-4 3-1 10-5. I was actually down 0-30 at *1-1 in the second, but she still didn't get any break points
And I just won Roland Garros, an epic final against Serena, 1-3 4-3 10-8. I saved 3 championship points in the second set, one at *1-2, and 2 in the tie-break, including one on her serve. I was also down 5-8 in the super tiebreak.

I only figured out after the match that I had just switched coaches, and had lost my Instant Rocket ability. So I kept miss timing my shots
