Top Spin 3 has the makings of a fun tennis game, especially with its focus on motion-sensitive controls and mini-games, but it's the result is not good. While the controls are okay (and slightly more forgiving than other versions of Top Spin 3), the computer-controlled opponents isare too difficult. The presentation is below average, with sub par audio effects and visuals that resemble a first-generation GameCube game. Its mini-games and four-player action (local only, no online) are somewhat cool, but the lack of a player customization tool and a Career Mode send it out of bounds. If you want a tennis game, go with the amusing Sega Superstars Tennis instead.
