If you read IGN reviews previously you will know that they calculate their reviews by taking into account five aspects, these are presentation, graphics, sound, gameplay and lasting appeal, it seems as if gameplay stole the show as they gave this aspect of the game 9/10.

In terms of presentation, graphics, sound and lasting appeal IGN were very happy with Top Spin 4, apparently sounds and graphics are realistic and the multiplayer modes will help the games longevity.

The game’s career mode is said to very extensive and you really see your player progress as you get further through the game, also the player creation tool is pretty impressive. As for controls you will probably start off thinking you have been thrown in at the deep end, however the game’s Top Spin Academy allows you to get to grips with the new system, after a while the controls will become second nature to you.

If you are considering purchasing Top Spin 4 we highly recommend checking out IGN’s fully detailed review, the game is PlayStation Move compatible, however at the time of this post we have no insight as to whether this is good or not.
