This year Tennis World Tour was released.
The game disappointed majority of the gamers.
Tennis Video Games are rare.
Not a lot of studios are out there who create tennis video games.
That is why people who love Tennis Game eagerly wait for a new installment all the time.
Still, to this date, no tennis game has achieved what Top Spin 4 did.
Here are the reasons why:
Hands down, Top Spin 4 had the best gameplay for a tennis game.
It is by far the best simulation ever produced for a tennis game.
The movement of the players was quite lifelike, and also the shot making was an absolutely top notch.
The serve, the rallies, the sheer tension the game created with its flawless gameplay is something we all miss dearly.
Also, if you play the game on higher difficulties, the game gives you real-life tennis experience where you have to fight for every single point.
I still play this game. And I still don’t find the graphics old.
The game managed to produce amazing graphics back then that still looks good to this date.
It also managed to create the players very similar to what they look in the real life.
Graphics are a very important aspect of the game these days. And Top Spin 4 nailed it. It managed to make every kind of court surface look lifelike and also the ball movement graphics were quite accurate.
What is the point of playing a tennis game if you can’t play with the best players in the world right?
Well, unlike football games where you only have to buy the right of a team, in tennis games you need the buy the rights of the individual players. Which makes it kind of difficult to include all the best players at the time.
But still, Top Spin 4 had a rich roster count.
It has Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka, Serena Williams, Caroline Wozniacki and also legends like Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras.
What else do you really need?
The Career Mode
The career mode was pretty exciting.
You could create your own player and there were enough choices from hairstyle to clothes. It felt satisfying.
Also, You can choose the type of player that you want to create from three different categories – Serve and Volley, Offensive Baseliner or Defensive Baseliner.
The experience points that you gain in the matches let you invest in building up your player by choosing one of the above three categories. Your player can go up to 20 levels. So, there were quite a number of possibilities to mix these traits up.
The tournaments were well set. And while beginning the career, you could choose how long each match will be, and yes it also included the option to play matches like they are played in the real tournaments.
Overall, Top Spin 4 was the most complete tennis game there ever has been. It’s been 7 years already since we have gotten a decent tennis game. We really hope that changes soon enough.
