The Wombat Writes:
"Since Pong, Tennis in its electronic form has traditionally leaned more towards arcade style fun than realism. Into this tradition steps 2K Sports with Top Spin 3, a tennis game that dares to make the game feel as realistic as possible at the expense of accessibility. This decision is a double edged sword, as it allows fans of tennis to play a game that more realistically recreates the talent and timing it takes to play the game professionally. However, if you're a gamer who's been weaned on arcade style tennis, you will no doubt be frustrated by the realism present in Top Spin 3. Overall the game definitely does a better job recreating the tennis experience than any of its competitors; however a few distinct flaws keep it from being game, set, and match."
