  • Summary: In the unsanctioned, underground and unhinged world of extreme Ping-Pong, the competition is brutal and the stakes are deadly. Down-and-out former professional Ping-Pong phenom Randy Daytona is sucked into this maelstrom when FBI Agent Rodriguez recruits him for a secret mission. Randy is determined to bounce back and recapture his former glory, and to smoke out his father’s killer – one of the FBI’s Most Wanted, arch-fiend Feng. Balls of Fury, the hit movie starring Christopher Walken, is now an action-packed ping pong game for the Wii. In Balls of Fury, you actually play table tennis using the Wii Remote. You will need to keep up with the ball as the pace gets faster and the opponents get tougher! There are many fun ways to play Balls of Fury including Exhibition mode, Arcade mode, and Story mode.

  1. Overall, Balls of Fury for Wii delivers solid motion control ping-pong action at home.
  2. The only gratification you can get out of this game is when you pass right by it in the game aisle. Use the money you would have spent for far more gratifying ventures, like rehab. Because if you actually bought this game, I’m sure that’s exactly where you need to be headed.
  3. With a few unlockable characters to its name that you can get in about two hours of play there is little to really keep you entertained here. Even a rental is too good for this.

    It's been a good while since I've come across a game of this caliber, which is to say that I don't often see titles that suck this bad in this day and age.
  5. A shrine to gaming incompetence. Arriving in the same month as "Galaxy" it's gotta take some balls to release something as totally inept as this and expect people to play it. [Christmas 2007, p.64]
  6. Balls of Fury is already one of the worst games of the year. The storyline is uninspired and the boring gameplay and outdated graphics make this table tennis game a real disaster of a game. Parents of all minor Wii-owners: don't be tempted to buy this game for a reasonable price. Whatever the price might be, it will be too much for this terrible game.

    I feel the game is great. You have to be a fan of the movie to enjoy the game. Playing our friends utilizing your favorite character is classic. IMHO...watch the movie then play the game. It'll all jive. Collapse

    This is the best game EVER, Why did you give it such bad scores? The hilarity of this game never ends and the 3 game modes make it even more fun! This great game deserves a score MUCH better than any other game. Expand

    WOW. Just the fact that Nintendo had the nerve to think that I was dumb enough to buy this game is an insult like no other. If -3698 was a score on this site, That's what this game would receive. Really, the game was so terrible it's indescribable. Maybe I would like it a little bit if I liked the movie, kind of like those DBZ games that they made. Nintendo really needs to carefully consider the choices they make when they design games, and... I'm pretty sure that that I've gotten my point across, so I'll tell you that the game is actually worth renting, because you will laugh your @$$ off when you see it's lameness. I didn't consider the humor of it's terribleness in my scoring, so it still gets a 0. Sorry movie fans, but you have to admit, the game was awful. Expand

    Balls of Fury on the Wii! The title is wrong. They should've called it Balls because they certainly had some while they were making this game.
