Re: Top Spin 4 Video game anyone?

I don't see the point of virtual tennis games.

Play some REAL tennis, man

Tennis doesn't translate well to video games.

Re: Top Spin 4 Video game anyone?

The best tennis game by far is Tennis Elbow: http://www.managames.com/tennis/game_en.html
Get that, then install the ITST patch from here: http://www.intertopspintour.net/foru...f=1047&t=16709

Here's a video sample (from a slightly older version of the patch):



The reason why it's good is because it's simulation (rather than arcade that TS4 became and all the Virtua Tennis games are).
The gameplay is super in-depth. I've played TS4 like twice in the year since I got Tennis Elbow.

You can hit shots like volley lobs, smash dropshots, half-volley dropshots, you can add sidespin to your FH DTL, and so on. You can control the amount of topspin on your kick serve, or slice, etc. Amazing shot selection that no other tennis game I've played has.

Re: Top Spin 4 Video game anyone?

Haven't tried Top Spin 4 but tennis elbow is pretty sweet. I'm a serve bot on tennis elbow

Tennis Fucking Sucks


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.


I respect Pure Tennis. First-strike, all-court, offensive tennis. Players who succeed here can succeed in both an offensive and defensive eras of tennis. Impure grinders like Nadull, Djokovic, and Murray could never win in an offensive tennis era.

All of the animations have improved a lot since that version. Trust me, give the demo a try with the ITST patch.
Gameplay is amazing once you pick it up.

Xbox Top Spin 4. Kowchi I kill at the Game. Can play as S@V, Defensive Player, Brainless Ballbasher. Bring it on, seriously.

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

True, so far. I hope somebody finds the right solution! The gameplay and the controls are key, obviously. I'd love a great tennis video game... are there any announcements about upcoming new tennis video games, by the way?

What I would also love is a tennis manager game. You are coaching a 14 year old to become the next world number one - training, travelling, tournaments, sponsors, media relations, all that stuff...

Release the Stanimal!!
