    When does Top Spin for PC come out?

    And what other PC Tennis games are available or going to be available?

    Yes, nice question...

    Thanks to ambro for not wasting our time with a response that has nothing to do with the question asked by the author.

    There is a demo out. You can play 1 match, Sampras v Kuerten (you can play as either) and its first to 3 games.

    Its great fun, but I've gotten pretty good at thrashing kuerten. You'll need a joypad of some sort, this isnt a keyboard and mouse kind of game.

    There are standard strokes, "lift" strokes, slice, lob, drop and "risk" shots (ie the player goes for a winner or an ace if serving).

    This kind of game works better on consoles, think i will try to pick a copy up from **** for the xbox.

    I have played a lot of tennis games.
    None of them had the minimum AI to make lobs when I was playing near the net!

    The best Tennis game for PC that I've played so far is "Tennis Master Series 2003". Look HERE for a preview and review of the game. Its pretty nice and the AI is pertty challenging. A good gamepad is ideal to play this game on PC. You can actually pick this game up in the bargain bin at Walmart or Big Lots for about $7.99 USD.

    The best PC tennis game to me is World tour tennis 1993
    [​IMG]

    It emphasize shot selection and early preparation so well in the game.

    Try it, get it from underdog, it is free.

    played the demo, love it! A lot better than TMS 03, you can't just run to th enet and win like you can it TMS. I've never played the Xbox version, but this is awesome.

    well I haven't played one tennis game, where the pc hits lobs!

    So it's simple to win!

    Just going on net, pc hitting towards you, and then you just hit a drop shot!


    TMS3 is one of them.
    I was always the winner with that method..

    Too bad..
    :(

    Well, just read the review for top spin...

    That's must be the best game, I think...

    How did that have nothing to do with what the original question? Go play in a busy highway.
