In career mode please tell me there is actually 6 game sets and hopefully best 3 of 5 when the tourney is supposed to have it. I've never understood the 3 game sets. If you're worried about length of the matches then make it an option rather than forcing sim fans to play half-assed matches. It's like TW having 9 hole tourneys or The Show having 5 inning games. Totally asinine.

One other question do they at least allow you to create a player to use as the an AI opponent in career mode or at the very least the ability to edit the generic opponents they have in career modes. if they are only going to have that crappy roster included then they may as well let us edit the others to make Novak and Nadal or some legends.

A few questions ...

1. Are there ball boys in the game? If yes, do they actually pick up the balls? (unlike the blind ball boys in TS2).

2. Are there attitude options as there were in TS1 - so you can praise your opponent, show your disgust, etc.

3. Instant replays?

4. How does the heart rate indicator affect your player's performance on the court?

5. How easy/hard is it to hit a ball out?

Thanks!

I got a few Questions too....

1. Is there a TV Specator for Online Players like there is "Virtua Tennis TV" in Virtua Tennis 3 to watch other Matches?

2. What is the main difference between the baseline-rallies compared to Top Spin 2 and is the net play (Volleys etc.) more effective in Top Spin 3 then in the past?

3. Is a big power Serve like Andy Roddick has for example really powerful and effective this time (can you hit Aces?) or are the big Serves still so easy to return and unimpressive like in the past of the Top Spin Series?

4. How does the Riskshots and Dropshots work without a power meter in Top Spin 3?

5. How effective are the weather changes in Top Spin 3?

Thanks for answering my Questions.

Re: Top Spin 3 Hands On Preview

a lot of this stuff I really didn't have enough time with the game to answer. keep in mind i was in a room with about 30 to 50 other media folks, so there was no chance for me to steal a copy of the game and go off into the corner, breaking down the career mode Dr. Jack style (which will be the first thing I do when I get the review copy, btw).

No praise or disgust in this one. most of the player energy part of the game seems to be centered around your heart rate. The calmer you are the better you play. The more concerned and frustrated you get, the more errors you make.

Only playing relatively short games against a human it was tough to see the true impact of these meters.

Instant replays are like in years past - after any play you can hit the Y button and see the replay. IMO they look very very good.

I've got an email in to some of the folks at 2K. I'll see if I can get these questions answered ;-)

Re: Top Spin 3 Hands On Preview

Any speculation on when a Demo could be coming out? I know its still pretty early, but it does come out May 18th.

I am a big fan of TopSpin 3 and I understand the limits of aquiring each Pro individually to use in the game. But why not take a page out other sports games like ncaa football games(editing apperances, ability, etc...) and allow us to edit the fake players in the game and we could create real-life professionals ourselves and put them in the game to play with or against. That would add a lot of replay and realism to Top Spin3 and would be a way of getting around player licences that was unaquired.
