Re: BOMBSHELL!!! Top Spin 4 announced!

Oh for sure graphically speaking Topspin 4 is much better....even now 5 years later after release it is still a very pretty game and is holding up very well.
But I loved the gameplay in TS3 as it seemed to cater to more styles of play.
Try being a defensive player in TS4 and you will get little joy as it is almost impossible to force your opponent into errors.....it is very much "pusher proof"

I feel Topspin 4 was dumbed down and made more "arcade like" to appeal to the masses as it lacked the dynamics of its predecessor.
Even if TS3 was more difficult TS4 flowed so much better. I always felt that TS3's gameplay was too wooden. And let's face it watching matches of both TS4 looks much more like a real tennis match.

I feel like Top Spin 4 took on a more realistic approach in terms of footwork and being in the right position, timing or your shot would not be good.

There are 2 big things I didn't like about Top Spin 4 that still put Top Spin 3 above for me!

1. How the CPU's level would increase once you reach the SF of a Grand Slam to higher than any other time in the game.

2. And what I hated the most was that there were never any upsets, the pro characters always won. The draw played out the same in every tournament which was boring, especially in Top Spin 3 some of the Generic characters were my toughest rivals. It made the game more exciting!


I could take #1 if #2 didn't exist!

Also Top Spin should have combined all of the Pro Women's Characters from all 4 games into 1 because the women's selection was trash every year in comparison to the guys.

Top Spin 4 had the Big 4 formt he Men's tour.

I would have loved to have seen the Top Spin 3 characters along with the Top Spin 4 women characters. Add in Venus and Kim and it would have been great!

If Top Spin 3 or 4 did that right, they would have been perfect tennis games. I personally consider Top Spin 4 the best game but it could have been much better.

Re: BOMBSHELL!!! Top Spin 4 announced!

I'm really annoyed that a great sport like tennis doesn't get tennis games anymore whereas a shitty sport like American football gets a game every year. Heck even Hockey, Baseball, golf and Tour De France get more games even tho they don't have stars as big as Fedal and Serena/Maria

You don't have to use it, it's just the arrows and ALT + CTRL (I guess there must be more to it, though)

Sure. In my game it's (this is the translation, I have it in Spanish): Main Menu > Training Club > Play > Online Game (the big circle with the computers) > Join a game > Find online games.

You should also customize your player and their name before, from my experience nobody wants to play with you if you're just "Player 1".
