Top Spin 4 has an impressive career mode filled with plenty of things to keep you busy. In career you create a custom character and start from the bottom of the rankings as a newcomer. Before you can start taking on the world’s best you’ll have to participate in sparring matches, training camps, and minor tournaments to build your rank. Each month you’ll be competing in minor tournaments and sparring matches to gain xp for customizing your attributes. This is where Top Spin 4 does a great job with character building. There are 20 levels for your created character to obtain which are broken down into 3 specific classes, Serve and Volley, Offensive Baseline Play, and Defensive Baseline Play. Serve and Volley is putting the pressure on opponents with net coverage and volleys, and performing precise serves to set up approach-shot opportunities. Offensive Baseline Play is strong shots from the baseline, forcing opponents to return weak shots, and giving power to your serves. Defensive Baseline Play is tiring out your opponent, using all of the different spin types, and being fast with high stamina. Each time you level up you are able to pick from one of these 3 classes which automatically build the secondary skills such as forehand, backhand, serve, speed, power, etc. This makes for a quick and painless leveling experience, making it easier to customize your character the way you want. Career mode is well over 30 hours of play and will keep you going long after you’ve reached level 20 in your character development.
