    I didn’t think I would enjoy VR Ping Pong that much. But the physics and control at its core are spot-on. Unfortunately it is harmed by a serious lack of content.

    Ultimately, if you’re looking for a serious table tennis game then this isn’t it; VR Ping Pong sits firmly in the casual gaming genre, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

    VR Ping Pong is a likable take on the popular sport that’s held back by its lack of multiplayer. There’s only so much fun you can have with the AI matches and minigames and, once you’ve had it, there’s little reason to stick around.

    VR Ping Pong may be basic in design but it is a gruelling challenge in every other way. Whether it is enduring the boring soundtrack, the based in realism control scheme or the battle with jittering move tracking it is one hell of a test of patience and skill. There are some redeeming qualities such as the arcade mode, however I couldn’t recommend this to anyone other than Ping Pong fanatics.

    Sometimes infuriating, occasionally wonderful, VR Ping Pong has a sweet spot where it plays beautifully, but it's hard to find. A brave but flawed experiment. [Apr 2017, p.97]

    VR Ping Pong's a steeply priced simulation that mostly misses the mark. The presentation is rudimentary and the gameplay is awkward and unrefined. The developer may argue that we're just bad at table tennis, but we have no problem in real-life, so clearly there's something awry here. Factor in technical glitches and this is difficult to recommend.

    Purchased this game as it was on sale through the PS Store for $5.99. Indie game, bit of a learning curve in the beginning. Give it somePurchased this game as it was on sale through the PS Store for $5.99. Indie game, bit of a learning curve in the beginning. Give it some time and practice and this game is actually pretty fun. Just remember to change the table height etc, in the settings. All in all, not Sports Champions level but certainly better than nothing. Expand

    Great Table tennis sim , Ive played table tennis in real life and this the closest you can get to having a table tennis table in your house .Great Table tennis sim , Ive played table tennis in real life and this the closest you can get to having a table tennis table in your house . PSVR is in need of sports titles and this is a great addition . The game may take some a while to get use to but after spending time in practice you will be fine . The area of play is bigger than usual Psvr games but that's to be expected with a game of this type . Difficulty level is set at a good pace . Ive had no tracking problems and physics have been spot on . If devs update game with more tournaments or content that would be amazing , I hope this game sells well . Expand
