Top Spin 2 is an oldie, but a goldie. The game itself is one of the first tennis games on the Xbox 360 system, and brings you entertainment with it's multiple modes of play; exhibition mode, career mode, and online mode. Being from 2006, the online portion of this game is dead, so you may have to get creative in your methods if you want the full 1000 for this game. Exhibition mode provides you with quick entertainment in the form of singles or doubles competition against the 12 male and 12 female professional tennis players in the game. Career mode is comprised of 5 season in which you have to battle your way to the top to be the ruler of the league. So, let's jump in and break down these three modes on your way to what is an easy, yet somewhat lengthy 1000
Exhibition Mode - 3 achievements for 175 :
Exhibition Mode in the game allows you to set up a custom match type and choose one of the 24 characters to pit against another character in singles or doubles play. For the easiest way to get achievements, singles mode is the way to go. The exhibition mode is comprised of 3 achievements for 175. The first one comes easily enough by winning your first exhibition mode (see the guide for the easiest way to complete exhibition matches). The second two are given out for beating every male player and every female player. This process is not as long as it first sounds, as you can set the matches to the minimal length of 2 sets comprised of 1 match each. Beating each player should take less than 5 minutes, so with 24 total, you are looking at around an hour and a half of possible gameplay for all three of these achievements.
Career Mode - 5 achievements for 600 :
Career Mode will provide you with the bulk of this game's gamerscore, and it is realativly easy to get them all. Please be aware that there is one missable achievement in this mode, titled, "End Career with 1000 Points", so please read the achievement description so you don't waste time needing to play a whole new season again. You can read the achievement solutions below on how to gain all of these achievements, and they are all pretty straight forward, and all but the one mentioned above can easily be earned in your first year of your career.
Online Mode - 3 achievements for 225 :
Online mode at this stage in the game's lifecycle is non-existent. The servers are still online fortunately, so you have two options to get these achievements (see the below guide for the full achievement details).
First, you can try and organize a boosting session with another player on this game's forums, or on another site. You can take turns trading off wins so that you each reach 25 wins, at which point you should also get the achievement for playing in 50 total online matches. The general idea to make this go really quick is to trade off quitting out once you guys are matched up and in a game. This should not be too hard since you two will most likely be the only ones attempting to play this game's online mode.
The second method is to own two Xbox consoles, two controllers, two copies of the game, and two Xbox LIVE Gold accounts. Again, you should be the only one playing this game, so simply que up for an online match, and then have a second profile on another Xbox do the same. You should get matched up together. Then, quit out of the game on your alternate account, thus crediting your main account with a match played, and a win recorded. Do this 50 times to nab all three achievements in a relatively short time. This method is a lot more costly, but it does cut down on any reliance of an outside party, and I'm sure many people looking to 1k this game at this stage are achievement hunters and possess the extra equipment needed to make this easy.
This game is very easy, pretty fun for a 2006 tennis game, and should provide you with a nice boost of gamerscore, even if you choose to not complete the online achievements. So, happy achievement hunting for that 1000!
