It looks like it’s been quite an informative week this week in regards to the upcoming Top Spin 4 and Virtua Tennis 4 games. Not only have we received information on an official US release date for the Top Spin 4 title, but the rosters for both tennis-based games have also been revealed.
An interesting article by jbl316 over at captainstarball.com takes a quick look at both games, to see which one has the better roster. For example, the Top Spin 4 roster includes names such as Boris Becker, Serena Williams, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Caroline Wozniacki and Pete Sampras.
Jbl316 notes that while it’s nice to see a mix of both old and new players, there does appear to be more male players than female ones. Another interesting point is the fact that Maria Sharapova doesn’t appear to be included in the Top Spin 4 game at all.
In the meantime, the Virtua Tennis 4 roster includes Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Juan Del Potro, Novak Djokovic, Venus Williams, Laura Robson and Maria Sharapova. Virtua Tennis 4 may lack the tennis legends that are featured in Top Spin 4, but it’s still rather impressive.
The final opinion of jbl316 is that Virtua Tennis 4 has the better roster of the two if you’re new to the sport of tennis, while Top Spin 4 might appeal more to old-school tennis fans.
