Top Spin 4 (2011)

PS3, Xbox 360, Wii

Top Spin 4 adopts a more patient approach to tennis, teaching you the full selection of shots, along with the strategy and skill needed to execute them, while visual indicators attempt to make the game easy to grasp whatever your skills. Chuck in some brand spanking new animations and you’re looking at 2K’s best version yet. We’ve come a long way since the days of twiddling a dial to bat a square ball back and forth.
