No I don't think so, It's a Xbox 360 game, I'm sure the PS2 can't handle it, but i did hear there is going to be a Top Spin 1 version for PS2

Yeh that was my package deal when i was signed by liverpool football club academy at the age of 6 but i sign a new contract with the reserves soon which takes my salary up to £800 a week with bonuses for each appearance i make in the team! I suppose if i made it in to the 1st team with steven gerrard and fernando morientes id be on 10 times that amount but that aint gonna happen for a very long time because i need to improve a hell of alot first! but £400 is enough to keep me going ive got a nice car and a nice flat allthough that is paid for by the academy but its bloody massive lol! :)

Federer/Sharapova Cover Top Spin PS2

"Being on the cover of the top tennis game in the world is something I'm very proud of," said Maria Sharapova. "It's an honour that my hard work and achievements are being recognized in this manner. Now, everyone gets a shot to play against me - but look out, I'm bringing my 'A' game in Top Spin!"

"I am honoured to be chosen as the cover athlete for Top Spin," said Roger Federer. "The game does an excellent job of capturing the intensity of tennis and combines that with incredible visuals. Simply put, fans are in for a treat as 2K Sports has done an excellent job delivering the best and most realistic tennis game."

"We're thrilled to have two of the most exciting tennis players representing our game," states Erik Whiteford, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. "Roger Federer is by far the most talented and dominant men's tennis player in the game today. Maria Sharapova's power, competitive drive and tenacity have established her as one of the most important and visible players on the women's tour. Both players exhibit the winning attitude of great tennis champions, making them a natural choice to represent the best tennis video game."

i bought top spin 1 for playstation 2 yesterday!

didnt think much of the graphics but its a good game and Masha is in it!

i beat Shauganessy with Masha in 2 sets :woohoo:

but what i dont get is... Masha has the same outfits she wore in 2005 season , but there is a top spin 2 out, and top spin 1 has only been released on Ps2 recently!

why not just bring out 2 also??

Maria Croft
Dec 29th, 2005, 10:09 PM
Don't get me started on the Playstation version, it's nice to play with Maria but they just gave her Anna's stats from the original Top Sin game for the Xbox! I mean, 11 starts and only 2 for backhand, and her natural talent is technician, yeah right!

I hope Top Spin 2 will make more effort in creating a realistic Maria in every way, not just the looks

yer, i was wondering hy Masha was weak on her forehand on the game!

its typical Playstation cutting costs and being stingy!

hope top spin 2 puts her better too!

Your being too generous :lol: There's so much that's wrong with the game. what really pissed me off were the shocking graphics and how long u have to hold the shot buttons, after a few minutes my thumb was wrecked.

Maria Croft
Feb 24th, 2006, 02:30 PM
It looks like this time they got her game right, now she's a baseline attacker

I think the star with 72 also means something, because Sugiyama only has 56, I guess that means how good they are, makes me think that in Top Spin 2 Maria is one of the toughest

I don't think the face resembles Maria a lot. Wrong shape of the eyes. I am not into these games. I tried playing one of these games just last xmas as my brother has one. it was quite addicting! haha! I wonder if these players ever play themselves lol. I wanna know if they have these games in the players lounges at slams for example.

Anyway, can someone identify the players esp the men? Who's that between Nastya and Kuzzy? I dont even know if Im right in identifying some of them. Sugiyama doesnt look like that. And why dont they ever include Safin??!!! :mad: :lol:
