  • Summary: [WiiWare] It's time for some good old family fun, and what's more fun than table tennis? Just like a real family, choose your character from a cast of four, which includes Daddy, Mommy, Sarah and Billy. There are four table tennis-tastic stages where it doesn't matter if you're an indoors or outdoors table-tennis player. Pick your poison from a gymnasium, a forest park, a beach or even an amusement park. Choose from Single or Versus mode, or select a minigame to play. In Versus mode, you and a friend can play against each other to see who is the better table-tennis player. And if Single and Versus modes aren't enough, select between three minigames, which include Target Table Tennis, Thrilling Table Tennis and Matching Table Tennis. The appealing cell-shaded graphics and endearing music, on top of the super-fun game play, will have you and your family playing from morning till night. Get your paddles ready. [Aksys Games] Expand

    Luckily, Family Table Tennis' low cost makes it easy to justify an impulse buy for those in quick and urgent need of a virtual ping pong tournament. Just make sure you bring at least one friend along, though, because the single-player modes will leave you bored in a hurry.
  2. Essentially, Family Table Tennis is a cheap, enjoyable multiplayer game -- if that's what you're looking for, then this is a title you should definitely think about downloading.
  3. Poor value for money. [May 2009, p.87]
  4. Although Family Table Tennis is more complete than the Table Tennis game found in Wii Play, its single player is greatly outclassed by the single player mode in Wii Sports Tennis.

    You can do much better things with five dollars. Buy yourself some marbles. Buy your five friends some gum. Or maybe you'd like a yo- yo? I honestly don't care if you throw your five dollars in the trash. Just don't buy this game.
