Thankyou for the trailer - looking good this!

Looks alright I guess. I'm not a big Tennis fan, but if it's at least fun to play I might try to get some of its achievements. I gotta have something to play until GRAW and Oblivion come out!

Wow looks awesome!

Look actually quite good. Much better in motion than in the screenshots.
Commented on 2006-02-16 09:48:23
Yeah! I think this is going to be better than some other 360 sport games.

correct me if I'm wrong, but did I finally see some facial animations? Very good, very good - that was my only worry so far (that kinda "Robot" look)

If in terms of gameplay it matches the prequel, then we sure are in for a treat :)

Looks great! Just like being at Wimbledon, I can smell the strawberries and cream.

The animations seem to be very good. As for the graphics though I'll have to see it all running in 720p before making any judgements.

Well it looks amazing in motion, the clothing physics look great. Hopefully they tuned up the gameplay from the original.

Look very promising this, much better then the earlier stuff I saw from this game.. Especially the stadiums detail etc looks very good.. And I see they finally got the ball-boys&girls inthere aswell.. I enjoyed Topspin 1 on the Xbox very much, especially in MP, so probably gonna get this for my 360 now.. :)

Looks pretty good definately looks better in motion, shame about the music =/

Not interested in this for some reason.

Animation isn't too bad at all.

Looks quite smooth in action.

Too bad it won't come out until April, thanks for the delay. I'll be too busy with GRAW, Oblivion, FNR3 and BF2MC to even consider touching this until later in the summer.

360 is getting a healthy dose of 2nd wave games, library is looking better by the moment.

The game will get even funner for those who join a league. www.topspinassociation.com plans on having one. Ofcourse it's not out yet but they will be once the game comes out.

Looks good, I loved Topspin....
The only thing I missed in Topspin was commentary during the matches......
I hope that's included this time...

This video is crap.

Geez, I'm so damned tired of crappy video trailers for games. It was not so bad last-gen as it still left you with a decent representation of the games. But now that the games have all gone hi-def, low quality trailers just look ugly; and make the games they are advertising look ugly too. If I were a casual observer and did not know anything about video encoding, looking at the video, I'd swear it was for a last-gen game. The bitrate is so low in the video, that you can't make out important details like the hi-definition textures, motion blurs and even some of the lighting comes off as flat. Why bother even making the video and putting it out if it does not adequately reflect the experience that the final product will deliver to the gamer? These game companies can seriously learn a thing or two about properly pre-marketing their product. If I were not already a fan of the Top Spin series and if I had not already seen much better quality still photos of the game, then I'd think that Top Spin 2 was not even worth my time.

I just have to wonder how many other gamers this video represents their first impression of the game? All those potential buyers turned away because the marketing made the game look less than it is.

well is it the game creators or the gaming reporters who downsize the video quality. I'm sure it's in the best interest of the gaming reporters to downsize the video to conserve bandwith.

Usually videos and screenshots over exaggerate games, for me, this would be a first time the game was better than the promotions.

The Video Quality is horrible Guys!

I mean come on, it gives not many Informations about this Game and you put such a bad Video on your page.

Please try to bring a better Clip.

I mean are you serious?! :)

Are you speaking to Xboxyde, or the publisher of the game?
Commented on 2006-02-17 23:59:56
try visiting IGN for higher quality pics. I don't know about videos though.

The TSA plans to hold Davis Cup for the ATP tour and Fed Cup for the WTA side of the tour. Teams will represent countries - just as the Fed-Cup and Davis Cup do. The country you represent will be that of your WTA or ATP player; not your home country. The two events will be held provided there is sufficient support from members.

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @nostradamus: BioWare talks Mass Effect Andromeda squadmates, cut content and that missing release date: [url] Read 5th answer. (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (2 Hours ago)
