Top Spin Wii announced with suspect controls

topspinball.jpgI was thrilled to hear that an all new (read: not a port) Top Spin is coming to Wii in Spring 2008. I was disappointed, however, upon hearing how the controls would work.

The intuitive pick-up-and-play action in Top Spin Tennis allows gamers to use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers in a way that matches the movements players would make on a real court. The Nunchuk controls the player and aim, while the vibration-enabled Wii Remote hits the ball like a tennis racquet and determines the style of shot ranging from a top spin move to a slice.

Boo! The following control scheme (brilliantly engineered by yours truly) using a single Wii remote is how it really should be done.


Am I right, or what?
