Having sampled numerous tennis video games over the years, I say with confidence that Topspin 2 comes as close as any to replicating an on court experience. The previous version carries most of the same features, but Topspin 2 is markedly more refined and polished. This game is undoubtedly made for video gamers looking for a realistic tennis video game, contrary to virtua tennis. A complex and detailed career mode is available. In-game controls are rather complex with various combinations of shots and not to mention Topspin's signature "Risk" shot feature allowing the player to take a "risky" crack at the ball if and when they choose. Overall this is a very well put together game and certainly does a good job of putting the video gamer on court.
