Ugh, and to think I was considering buying a xbox 360 almost mainly for this.

it's just like the first topspin :o
it looks like serving might be a bit harder so that's good

i hate how players still hit swinging volleys from the baseline and off low hard balls, it's so unrealistic

I'm not sure what you're looking at, but the graphics look much better to me than from the first topspin for xbox. The changes are not super dramatic, but I'm not sure what you were expecting from a tennis game as far as graphics are concerned.

I wonder how the game play is going to be....

This is what I hate so much also! It pisses me off so bad when the comp does that.. If that game could have the SCTPT2 game play, it would be awesome...

I agree that other than the animations looking a bit more fluid, and a few other graphically pleasing touches, this game does not look like it should be on 360.

Well, those videos are of the "beta" XBOX360 (40% from total potency of the machine). It was at E3, on august 2005. The game will be much better, you can believe me...

I saw a recent pics from Coria and Nastya, amazing !!!!!

Players are hitting winning vollies from the baseline, and no matter how good the graphics are, it means you have a crappy game on your hands.

And I also saw other gameplay videos, and Maria Sharapova was hitting her flat backhands one-handed. :retard:

The way they hit the balls and the overall gameplay is boring to me. I like SCTPT2 WAYYY better so I'm holding out for a PS3 and hopefully they make another one for that and add some more players that would be a great game to me. I bought Top Spin to for PS2 and I traded it in for another game after a week.

Maria's slice backhand is often hit with one hand, although she doesn't use the slice very often lol

If you use topspin and go for a wicked angle you can hit it out. :)

they need to mke a really good tennis game with all the tourneys in it and at least the top 30 in each men and women and the swings should be like how the person swings and at least look like them and show their strengths and weaknesses like real tennis no made up players i hate that all the other sports are realistic why cant the tennis ones be??

SCTPT2 imo is the best tennis game ever made! Players look like the players, and they play like the players. The only thing id have to say is wrong with it, is the lack of Top Players. And the Pro Tour is a lil unrealistic.

I hope they make a third soon, with a few more players like Pierce, Hingis, Sharapova, Nadal and Federer.

I was going to buy TopSpin for PS2 but if it is anything like the Xbox TopSpin, i dont think ill bother. It really isnt realistic play at all! Im suprised Xbox hasnt done anything better. Actually no im not! LOL I LOVE my xbox, but Playstation seems to have slightly better games in sport categories.

I have 5 Tennis Games on PS2. Some of them are quite dodgy, but the best are;

SCTPT1
SCTPT2

Virtua Tennis 2 ihas some good naming and clothing rights too.

BRING ON SCTPT3 :bounce:

EXACTLY!! They need to spend the money getting the players to go in for a session and re-create their swings for the computer and their faces and bodies for a more accurate look to the players. I mean the graphics for the new Madden and NBA games look great, why not tennis? I mean it is a very universal sport, but it isn't popular enough for any company to spend that kind of money on it. I want a game for tennis that has the top 32 players from the mens and womens tours, the top tournaments, all the clothing and racquet sponsers on board, the actual tournaments on tap, and a tour mode where you can play as a real pro. I'm sick of the arcade and exhibtion shit that every game has. I want a game where the ball doesn't light up everytime you hit it, or the screen says "NICE" or the ball has targets on it when it is a short ball. I just want a raw, realistic, and intense tennis game. No more of this cartoon looking players, light up balls, same technique for everyone, same serve speed for everyone, monotonious game play type of tennis game. I mean golf and NASCAR are far cries from being athletic, yet they have way better games than tennis. Time for someone with money (maybe the tennis channel or the ITF are listening) can give a little to help fund an incredible tennis game for ALL systems....

I just ordered Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2 game. Can anyone tell me how is it? Is it a nice game, it looked good. Also, it had some great WTA players. Like Serena, Capriati, Davenport, JHH, Clijsters, and more. How is the WTA Season? Can you play with any WTA/ATP player? Thanks, in advance.

The WTA season is only on create player mode. Once you learn how to time the ball (it isn't that hard), the game is super easy. The game needs less cartoon-like graphics of players, but the stadiums are great. The game play for me was monotonious and the ball looks huge on the screen. The create a player and tour with them mode's ranking system is tough and you have to play a lot and play on low stamina to get up the rankings. On tour mode, you can play in mission mode or normal mode. Once you get it, you'll see what I mean. I'd give the game a 2.75 out of 4 stars.

I have SCPT2 and used to be in love with the Pro Tour mode. I won 4 majors and had a career high of 23. :lol:

But can anyone tell me about TopSpin for PS2? I know I'm getting it for Christmas and I'd like to know about it. How are the graphics? How is the pro tour? etc.

i agree
really, you think someone would have done it by now. it wouldn't be that hard for them to make it properly. they should get the real tennis fans, like us, to design it for them and they can do all the technical stuff and then we can tell if it is good or crap.

Thanks! :hug:

I wish you could play as a WTA/ATP players on the tour mode. So you could win some titles with them, but you probably have to play against them or something. Oh well, I hope it is good! :D
