    wow. I go into the store to pick up a small present for my g/f, and i see an X-box stand set-up with some demo games to play. I go over and see they had Topspin, so i said what the heck and decided to play.


    10-15 minutes later, and i'm dead hooked. That game is absolutely amazing. I could only play as Sampras, but wow.....i so wish i had an Xbox.

    For once i actually wish i had something other than my ps2. I'm affraid i'm gonna end up buying one in the next month now, though. LOL

    Same experience here. I already had a PS2 and a gamecube. Walked in to buy a PS2 game, asked the cashier if I could demo Topspin and ended up walking out of the store with the damn Xbox.

    why don't they make a ps2 version for the rest of us? I'm sure it would sell.

    MS produced it. it's exclusive to Xbox so that you buy a Xbox which I did just for that game.

    If you guys buy the game, you gotta play online. Over 80,000 ranked players online and its a lot of fun. The game itself comes with a 2 month free trial so you have nothing to lose :).

    ok guys i don't mean to be a downer here but let me just say this: the game is fun for a few days of intense play. however i'm finding two major flaws:
    1. no player is that consistent
    2. You can serve your slice out wide in the duece court, come to the net and win every point. You can do almost as good in the ad court.

    Hahaha, you guys wasted money on the XBOX, best two tennis games are coming out for PS2 this summer. SMash Court Tennis 2 will come out in June- much better than Top Spin, and few other tennis games.
