Tennis dreams become (virtual) reality with Top Spin 3

Game on: Though I'm not a huge gamer by any means, I've had some fun battling on Wii Tennis. But the upcoming Top Spin 3 is pretty impressive by any standard.

The new game, which will be released on May 20, features the likenesses of Roger Federer, James Blake, Maria "Shriek"apova, Andy Roddick and more. And when I say likeness, it's an understatement. I was amazed at how life-like the players look, from their stroke production and mannerisms to their fashions and sweat!

Top Spin 3 creators 2K Sports hosted a media event at the Sony Ericsson Open and featured James, Maria, Svetlana Kuznetsova, and Gael Monfils battling each other's virtual-selves.

Check it out:


  1. Wow I am impressed. The players definitely look life-like. Although instead of contacting the players' agents they should have just gotten Nole to sign off on all the movements and characteristics :P

  2. OMG!!! this looks f*cking fantastic!

  3. yes jimmy we wouldn't want to "steal" his moves. mama djokovic doesn't play...

  4. alsmithies - i was pretty blown away by how real it looked. props to 2K Sports for getting it right!
