Gosh I hope they finally have some commentary this time. Thats been missing from every tennis game thats ever come out. It takes alot away from the realism to me.
# 3 kennytomson @ 09/07/10 07:53 PM

Very happy to hear this.

First, Michael Jordan in NBA 2K11. Now, Andre Agassi in Topspin 4.

Thank you 2K for realizing that there is still interest (and money to be made) in athletes from the recent past. Both titles are a first-day purchase for me.

After tha abomination TS3...I really hope 2k Czech brings this back to the promise land..

Finally. its about time they release some info on this game. Top Spin 3 came out June of 08 so they've had plenty of time to make this game good. It better be good.
# 8 Shakedowncapo @ 09/07/10 10:44 PM
The first thing they touched on...Controls. A huge plus.

And Agassi mullet?!

Oh my I didn't think they were going to make any more Top Spins. In my opinion, TS3 was the most realistic tennis game out of all the virtua tennis and TS iterations I've played. The control scheme was what made that game great so hope they keep it and just iron out some of the issues. The biggest problem with TS3 was that it was too easy against the A.I. Even playing on very hard the only cpu player that gave me trouble was Nadal but even then I still won in straight sets.

Tennis can be a blast when played against friends so hopefully this game delivers.

Offline Multiplayer tournament mode is a must. The single player career mode is far too dull.
Really surprised to hear of this release. I thought 2K had given up on the Top Spin series.
# 12 Ermolli @ 09/08/10 11:26 AM
Yes! I was hoping to see a new version of TS. I wish they really improve copmpared to TS3
# 13 tommyjesus @ 09/08/10 03:05 PM
game looks awesome!

and pistol pete is in the game!

one thing i hope they address is how come serve speeds are always so low? serve speeds should be able to go as high as 140mph for certain players with a 120mph average for most players, and a 100+ second serve.
# 14 Shakedowncapo @ 09/08/10 06:09 PM
You could get 140mph serves in TS3 if you used the right player(like roddick) and used the roght analog stick.

oh, i skipped top spin 3. i was just going by the preview i read.
# 16 Splitter77 @ 09/10/10 06:50 AM
not buying if players dont make unforced errors, cant serve aces, and dont hit the net.
Also, i vote they completely take the dive button out of all tennis games.
# 17 rangerrick012 @ 09/11/10 02:46 AM
Really pumped to hear about this, anything new should be awesome, TS3 is still in my rotation, needless to say as I am a huge fan, TS4 will more than likely be a 1st day buy for me. Hopefully improved career mode, tighter controls, and we have a winner.
# 18 rooney8 @ 09/11/10 11:25 AM
YES!!! Loved Top Spin 3 and have been waiting for too long for this follow up. Glad it's on its way.
# 19 Behindshadows @ 09/17/10 03:16 AM
Will Serena and Venus return? That's what I want to know....they have been putting only one sister in the game over the last few games. They both haven't been in the same game since Dreamcast's Tennis 2k2.

And we need all their tacky outfits in the game too...

Could care less about past Stars to be honest.
