    The real deal, tons of fun to play, and wonderfully simplistic. The game could have used an overhaul, and if Rosktar decides to keep the series alive it could use more options and far more content – a career mode and mini-games are nowhere to be seen – but as it stands it’s still just as strong of a game now as it was a year ago.
  2. The ideal alternative to Wii Sports. It's a highly enjoyable, well-designed game with simple appeal and real depth. It's the game the Wii's been waiting for - well, one of them, at least.
  3. Ultimately, it's a good version of a good game that originated on a very different platform — an even better game, really, just as Resident Evil 4 for Wii is the definitive version of an already excellent title.

    Still great fun. Looses out graphically but gains with interactivity. [Dec 2007, p.80]

    With some of the best motion control yet seen on the console, accessible but deep gameplay and beautiful character animation, Table Tennis Wii is the machine’s premier sports title. [Dec 2007, p.114]

    Table Tennis Wii is the same game as the Xbox 360 version. Nothing’s changed apart from the controls. Rockstar has done fine job adapting the controls to suit Wii’s nunchuk and Wiimote. The game is at its best when played with friends. Because of the lack of career mode single play gets boring quite fast. All in all Table Tennis is a great party game even though the single play is lacking. [Dec 2007]

    In the grand scheme of things, Table Tennis won't set the world alight. However, taken as the hugely-playable and addictive arcade sports game it is, it's good stuff. [Christmas 2007, p.82]
  8. From a Wii-friendly point-of-view, Table Tennis succeeds as a hardcore title that lends itself to Nintendo's console with a clever approach to the control setup. It's slightly disappointing to find no new features beyond a mundane Training option, which leaves the long-term appeal slightly questionable. Nevertheless, Table Tennis on Wii manages to retain many of the qualities of its 360 predecessor, providing you've got a couple of Wii Remote's lying around.
  9. There's no online play, so loners will have to leave the house and make some friends if they want human opponents.
  10. The game makes great use of the Wiimote controls yet a lack of game modes and online play will leave you wanting more.

    I know everyone was expecting a violent and gruesome game filled with profanity and sexual acts, but at the time, Rockstar was getting inI know everyone was expecting a violent and gruesome game filled with profanity and sexual acts, but at the time, Rockstar was getting in trouble because people were finding extremely inappropriate sexual mini games in Grand Theft Auto 3. So in the next game Rockstar was going to make. Everyone was ready for more mature content, though Rockstar surprised everyone with a very mellow game that came out for the Wii console. If you look at it compared to other table tennis games, it is quite good. Full Review »

    Awful. I still regret the spontaneous move of grabbing it when I saw it in the shop. Wiimote + table tannis + Rockstar - it should be great.Awful. I still regret the spontaneous move of grabbing it when I saw it in the shop. Wiimote + table tannis + Rockstar - it should be great.

    Well, it isn't. The load times are long but I can live with them. But the control are horrible and have no relation to the on screen action. The point of the Wiimote is to mimick a realistick move, not assign butto presses to random gestures. Apart from the poor model, the delay between the move and the on screen action ruin what's left of the gameplay.

    The worst Wii purchase I've ever done.

The controls take some getting used to, but once you get the hang of focus mode, the game transforms itself into a contest that you cannot put down. Full Review »
