The most recent foray into simulated ball-smacking is 2K Sports' Top Spin 3. Claiming to be an evolution over Top Spin 2 (a game that I played and enjoyed for about a month straight), Top Spin 3 has some pretty big tennis shoes to fill.
Before I continue, let me first give you some background information: I don't like sports games. On top of that, I find tennis itself to be especially boring. I played tennis a bit in high school gym class and during "sports day" in the army, but only because the only other option was baseball which I find to be even lamer.
