The tennis game has always been a popular genre, with its roots leading right the way back to Pong. But games have come along way since then, as Top Spin on Xbox so kindly demonstrated with its super-realistic visuals, real-life-players, and online play. One year on, and the PC port of the popular tennis sim is finally ready.

Making the most out of an official license, Top Spin plays host to 16 of the game’s sporting greats including Pete Sampras, Anna Kournikova and Lleyton Hewitt. All characters look convincing and help to immerse the player in an engrossing game of tennis.

In what initially appears to be a simple but solid tennis game, Top Spin employs an ever-popular gameplay mechanic whereby players must aim the ball, preferably with the analogue stick of an appropriate third-party controller, and choose their type of shot with single button press. There are several obligatory game modes featured here, boasting singles and doubles play, and there’s even an extensive create-a-player mode to sink your teeth into.

But what makes Top Spin special is online play. Via your ISP, players can partake in worldwide tournaments and competitions with players from anywhere in the world. You can chat to your opponents when playing, arrange tournaments via the web and even track your progress and rank through a global leader board.

With the industry at such a competitive time in its life, online play has become a vital addition to the tennis game. This way, games are more competitive, more compelling and more addictive than ever before.
