I recently had a chance to speak with Top Spin 2 Producer, Jean-François CAPIZZI, from Pam Development in Paris France:

XBS – Top Spin is without a doubt one of my favourite Xbox games. Which is the one new main feature in Top Spin 2’s arsenal that impressed you the most?

Jean-Fran̤ois РThe new main feature which makes a difference between Top Spin and Top Spin 2 is definitely the gameplay itself. Our goal was to keep the easiness to pick up and play for beginners while offering more variety and depth to advanced users. Playing with pro players, users will now have to count on their strengths, and be sure their opponent will not benefit from their weaknesses. Playing with their own created player, users will be able to give it specific abilities to stick with the way they like to play. In addition to that, we enriched the panel of shots available to the user by adding risk shots and advanced shots. Our final goal really was to allow every user to play the way they want, giving them the shot and tactical abilities to express themselves on the court.
