The second Top Spin tennis game on Xbox 360 features a revamped graphics engine for more lifelike athletes. As in previous titles, players can choose from over 20 male and female tennis professionals, including such legends as Monica Seles, Bjorn Borg, and Boris Becker. Single and doubles matches are available in both the single-player career mode and in online competition. The latter supports custom tournaments and features a world ranking leaderboard that's reset every two weeks. Downloadable content is also available for new athletes, venues, and other enhancements.
In the career mode, players can create an athlete and build up his or her attributes in eight categories by competing in various events. Custom players are ranked 30th overall and will earn money to spend on new clothing, equipment, and accessories. The on-court action takes into account timing and proper footwork for returning shots. Serves are initiated by rocking the right analog stick back and then forward, similar to a golf swing. Real-time weather, cloth movement, and even perspiration are a few of the enhanced features designed for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
