Everything you loved about
Top Spin is back and made even better. The peerless player-creator is reborn with the powerful digital identity that truly puts you in the game. Experience the pro tour in venues that are alive and dynamic with environmental elements that react to your play. Characters are even more stunning with the addition of HD technology and the inclusion of the top players in the world like Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams, Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt and Roger Federer...

Back in 2003 a little gem of a game was released onto the market. For sports fans, particularly tennis buffs, this was what the gaming world had been waiting for. That game was Top Spin. Now, three years later, it has been improved and reintroduced to the market as Top Spin 2.

Before you start playing you are given the option of creating your own character. If you are prepared to spend a bit of time on this, you can easily create a passable likeness to yourself - which makes the actual gameplay that bit more fun. While here you can also choice to alter your talents - although to be honest these are all abilities that you improve during the main game.

Career mode is the core of this game. Your goal is to rise through the ranks to the number one seed. You get the option to train, play a game, and enter an event as you attempt to climb up the ladder. And you can even have a go at beating one of your tennis heroes - although you'll need to put in a bit of practice if you are to stand any chance of even returning the ball, let alone win.

There are a number of fun multiplayer games too (time bomb, wall breaker, and splash court) which help to keep this game fresh, fun and addictive.

At the end of the day this is about the best tennis game on the market. If you are a sporting fan then you'll love Top Spin 2.
