Top Spin, XBox

PAM Development‘s 2003 release, Top Spin, was the moment when tennis games came of age and went full 3D.

From Match Point on the ZX Spectrum, via Super Tennis on the Super Nintendo, to this… Arguably the pinnacle of all modern tennis games.

Whether you’re playing a career, or just one-off matches, Top Spin works as well as it does because the controls work so well. Like all great tennis games: it allows you to become ‘one’ with the on-screen player and get some great rallies going.

A French masterpiece!

These grabs were taken on a development XBox, which allows lossless screenshot capture via hardware over a network.
