So true! lol



Ahh but not me. GST2 taught me a lesson I will take with me to every tennis game now. I bought it and traded in 2 days later. I played the Demo and "hopped" the bugs and irregularities were fixed, only to find out that EA did not consider these irregularities or bugs, this was THE game.... :-? Djokovic and Nadal hitting with one handed BH? ...Federer with two handed?

Belonger - THAT is what "casual" approach does to the game. Half of the reviewers out there didn't even comment on this while giving high marks to the game. Thank god the BUYERS, the TRUE FANS put EA to place and didn't buy this garbage of an effort.

All this talk about Top Spin 3 made me go play for a few hours, was fun. First time in years, missed it. Does anyone play TS3? I think I prefer the way TS3 looks over TS4. The UI is soooo much nicer. I was trying to figure out which pace / timing is more realistic or comfortable for me, that's a tough one because they feel similar. But I think TS3 is a little slower. As for those nasty Risk shots, I call them Fun shots, lol. I'm not great at these, used to be at one time. Hence the name "Risk", today many of my Fun shots flew wide. :lol:

If anyone wants to play TS3 send me a friend request on XBL.

Cahill, why do hate TS4 so much? Also when you say "cheater" you make it sound like Shocase is unbeatable
when in reality i don't think anyone is unbeatable.
Man would i give anything to play shocase and fifa tee.

You would all take double baggels like 99% of ITST members because they used glitchs and so on. In ITST history, in my opinion, they are like Armstrong in cyclism, nothing.

Btw, I don't hate TS4 at all, I played the masters 2011 of TS4 on Xbox and hundreds of match on the live during more than a year... I enjoyed it till I discovered a game which gives you way more freedom in terms of aiming, positioning/running, which represents far more tennis of 2014 --> Tennis Elbow.

Since I play it, I've the feeling TS4 is a game that represents the tennis of the eighties in terms of speed. Moreover, the restrictions in the way you moove and aim are totally opposite to real life tennis life --> no Unforced errors, no risk, impossible to hit the ball in the public (in TE you can)... You finish your match with 30 winners 1 ue, you hit second serve like first services, no double faults, no tactics, it's a game full of tricks... And the control shot thing is also a big unrealistic thing : in real life you prepare your shot, where the **** did they they take this from ?

All in all, TS4 is not a tennis game, it's a game for disabled people. If you want to really get tennistic sensations virtually, TE is the best option : infinite learning curve, powerful shots, highly tactical match, risk management, extreme variety of styles (playing with a Lefty with High Spin is totally different than playing an Isner/Raonic which conclude in 2 shots, as well as with Fed an its weak BH but great FH), big realistic roster of 64 ATP players...

And I don't even talk about the TS4 community which is a total garbage due to the lack of communication on consoles. On TE, great atmosphere, people follow the livescores in real time on the chat to see who is currently doing what, talk and joke about everything, a really sain competition.

Even if i'll probably never play TE unless one day it comes on consoles because I hate playing on computer, all you say about comparison between TE and TS4 is interesting and makes me think.

But it's really a pity that you can't help but treating once again ShoCase and FifaTee as cheaters (Btw, they left for almost 2 years now... Why TF do you still talk about them). You have no one single proof of what you say about them. And when I watch their match that are still on Youtube, I see guys who are crazy good on positionning and timing for these damn control shots (BTW, I agree with you, ans more : they're not only unrealistic, they are real cancer of TS4, giving reflexes and timing to tap button a wide too important place in TS gameplay), but no clue about any cheat. They were just better than anybody or so when they played. It doesn't mean that they were the best ever : I would like to sse a game between one of them and Obskur57 with the level he had one year ago... I'm not sure they would win... Even a game vs eloymm or Hass2ssan with their today level would be interesting, I believe.

Several people on ITST play TE on TV by plugging their computers to TV :-)

It's a smart thought, I and trust it could work if 2K hadn't closured their tennis improvement place in Prague on the grounds that as far a sporting events go their centre may not be tennis particularly since beginning deals were poor. its just since easygoing/fleeting trend fans new to tennis and are games have gotten the game due to Wimbledon making a buzz among gamers new to tennis who have just begun viewing since 2011 or thereabouts and haven't known this game has been around three years and is a long-running arrangement. your thought is absolutely worth an attempt yet doesn't expect many Game engineers these days work by the witticism '' If it doesn't bode well''
