"Often a kick up the arse is exactly what the doctor ordered. Top Spin 2 was rushed; French dev PAM has no qualms about admitting it, suggesting at least something had to be offered on the new batch of consoles sooner rather than later.
We feel as though we have spent the entire presentation sweeping Top Spin 2 under the carpet, disassociating ourselves with an ugly step sister. But without it perhaps none of this would have happened; that boot to the behind clearly made PAM sit up and listen. Top Spin 3 has cut away the fat and focused on the important features, those that matter to you. It is approachable and fun, and thankfully Tim Henman is nowhere in sight."
