2 Top Spin 2 Hands on: Which should be believed?

Gamespot:
The first thing you'll notice about Top Spin 2 is its graphics, which on a proper HD monitor look great. Player models are very lifelike and authentic looking, especially the models based on the many famous tennis pros that are playable in the game, including Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, Venus Williams, and Maria Sharapova. Furthermore, the environments themselves benefit greatly from the Xbox 360's graphical horsepower--the textures on both grass and concrete courses are more detailed, and the light and shadow effects are far more impressive than what we've seen on the Xbox and PlayStation 2. The backgrounds are more alive than ever before too--as you play in a local park, for example, you'll notice folks jogging by the tennis court or simply hanging around the court watching the action. The courts show off a lot of design variety as well, from slightly run-down regional parks, to splendid country club courts, to the famed Wimbledon Centre Court in London.
IGN:
Visually, I must admit the preview build wasn't terribly impressive looking. We played it in widescreen at 720p and at 480p and the game, at least this preview build, doesn't seem to have the next-generation chops we were expecting. Are we expecting too much? Perhaps Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter has whet our appetites quite a bit, but what should we expect? It's 2006 and it's a next generation game right? Overall, the game looks decent with good looking stadiums, a quick framerate, and average load times. The character models, however, were the most disappointing. You could barely make out the real athletes, and in some cases it was a blessing to see their names under their pictures. Again, we're hoping to chalk this up to this preview build, so we'll see a little later on when more advanced versions come to our door.
hmmmmmm

I have always thought IGN sucks. Anything that has to do with EGM isn't worth the paper it's printed on or the keyboard it's typed up with. IGN is the kind of company that distorts and alters a story or pics just enough to fit their point of veiw.Look at the differance between the Gamespot pics and the one's on IGN.

I don't really read gamespot either but from what little I have read their complaints and negative reviews about games seem more legit and not like a couple fanboys whining and crying over some nitpicky issue. Honestly though most reviews on sites like these are worthless imo, I see the videos, I know the developers and I listen to the points of veiw of guys like BlimBlim and many others so it is pretty easy to tell rather a game is worth playing or not without going to these corporate sell out "gamer" sites.

Jato your link is no good.

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Well, the original 3rd game itself felt more like a add-on or kit-bash of the second game of sorts anyway. I can't really remember too many memorable things from it, apart from Nemesis. (47 minutes ago)

  • Seth

    Seth this game could turns out either way,i have some doubts about it. Much potential to improve a lot of things over original, but at the same time - different team is working on it and could mess it up. (7 Hours ago)

    Seth *development (7 Hours ago)

  • Seth

    Seth @MikeManiac61: it's made by different studio (formed by ex-Platinum/Capcom devs) and the word is it's been in developmend for over 2 years now. That according to Dusk Golem on ResetEra. (7 Hours ago)

  • MikeManiac61

    MikeManiac61 @MrWhite: I think they started a little bit after they were done with RE2. People were always asking for it and the power of nostalgia is strong. (21 Hours ago)

    MrWhite Witcher show actually looks good here in this vignette. Henry Cavill seems like a bit of a nerd for the character too, so he could be really good in this (21 Hours ago)
