One of the top Xbox sports games, in both sales and popularity returns for another serve, but this time on the Xbox 360. Everything that fans loved about Top Spin is back for the new-generation machines allowing players to create/customise realistic player models with the highest level of details and watch them move with silky smooth animations. The player-creator from the original game has been rebuilt with a powerful “Digital Identity” engine that truly puts you in the game. Apart from custom players – there is a wealth of famous faces to chose from as well including Andy Roddick, Carlos Moya, Tommy Haas, Lleyton Hewitt, Guillermo Coria, Tim Henman, Brendan Evans, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Lindsay Davenport, Anastasia Myskina, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Corina Morariu and heaps more.
Experience the pro tour in venues that are alive and dynamic with environmental elements that react to your play. Characters are even more stunning with the addition of HD technology and the inclusion of the top players in the world like Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams, Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt and Roger Federer. Improvements to the AI of the original game have also been made, thankfully removing the “zombie” behaviour if you lobbed the ball over your opponents head.
Finally – Top Spin 2 also has comprehensive XBox Live features allowing you to pit your skills against players all around the world.
