It's a great game... But it gets boring after awhile as it's too easy once you have it down.

There´s also a Sponge Bob Squarepants game for the Xbox. If I was you I´d buy one.

Who wants to play with my balls?

Re: Should I go through buying an Xbox mainly to play Top Spin?

Top Spin is by far the best tennis game, so if you want to play a tennis game that's the one. But, like some others already said, the single player game is a bit boring after a while, it doesn't really have you keep coming back like Virtua Tennis did. On the other hand, the multiplayer is flawless, even after a couple of years.

I don't know how the game plays through xbox live cause I don't have live. You will need a broadband connection, you can't use a 56k phone line.

The Xbox does use broadband.

Also, there is a PC demo of Top Spin available:

I don't know what the PC multiplayer is like, never played it or the Xbox multiplayer.

Re: Should I go through buying an Xbox mainly to play Top Spin?

this is the reason i bought my xbox. but now i don't even play topspin. it was totally worth buying because i ended up buying other games (halo and halo 2...and others too) that i play a lot now. my friends and i all get together to play halo 2 and it's rather fun.

i do have xbox live, and tried playing topspin, but there weren't any players online... i tried joining a tournament too but it got cancelled because of lack of people.

Re: Should I go through buying an Xbox mainly to play Top Spin?

I love playing Top Spin...but like others have said it gets old really fast. Mainly, because it is so easy to achieve a "legend" status. However, I still play it everyday because I make my own tournaments to play in, and I like kicking Hingis' ass everyday.

Don't buy an X BOX just for this game, I would also suggest Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005! I don't even like golf but it's really fun to play.

That's if you have a fairly high-end graphics card.

Which costs even more than an XBox.

I did the same thing you did, Dario... sold all my PS2 shit to get an XBox. But, that's because my PS2 finally died after months of annoying problems. And yours will die eventually, also. PS2's are so cheaply made... including the new slim ones.

I wouldn't get an XBox just for Top Spin. Online play sucks... you can't play competitively, because there's way too many cheap ways to win. It's only useful if you have some friends who want to play fair games with you. Offline play is fun... but, it does get easy after a while. Plus, the computer serves like retards.

If you're not into sports games or fighting games or Halo... I wouldn't suggest getting an XBox, though. XBox has so few games that I like, personally. But, I needed a console.

I love my Xbox, but I only play driving games and first person shooters or martial arts games like Dead or Alive 3. And GTA of course, but San Andreas isn't out for ages on the Xbox
