Gameplay

Rockstar Table Tennis is a realistic simulation of the Olympic sport of table tennis. The game is played by having two players hit a ball back and forth to each other, with the object of trying to make one's opponent miss his return through the use of various 'spinning' maneuvers. For example, if one's opponent were at the far left of the table, he would 'spin' the ball to the right of the table. The game also features a drop shot, as well as a "focus shot" where the game goes into slow motion and the player returns hard-hit balls more accurately. The five Olympic rings were designed in 1913, adopted in 1914 and debuted at the Games at Antwerp, 1920. ... Ping Pong redirects here. ...


Reception

Most reviews[4] have praised this game for its simplicity, its "pick up and play" style, and the graphics. Most reviews scored 80–90%. The game also includes numerous unlockable achievements that increase the longevity of the single player game - although the difficulty of obtaining some of the multiplayer achievements (such as one requiring the maximum TrueSkill rating possible, only achievable by the top few players on the world leaderboard) was one of the few criticisms of the game.

In addition to its simplicity, the game does grow in complexity, allowing for 100, 200, or even more hit rallies which can feature multiple strategies throughout[original research?]. While the single player does lack in depth, the multiplayer (via Xbox Live only) allows for exhibition and tournament play with up to 12 other players. ...

However, some reviewers[5] criticized its lack of features, such as a career mode, create-a-player, and other elements available in many other modern sports games. Table Tennis features only exhibition and tournament play (for both single and multiplayer). Most reviewers[6], however, were able to overlook the omission of such features due to the game's budget price (Table Tennis was priced new at $40/£30, $20/£10 cheaper than most Xbox 360 games).


Wii version

A Wii port of Table Tennis was released by Rockstar Games on October 16, 2007. The game fully utilizes the Wii Remote.[1] The Wii version offers 3 different control schemes: The Wii Remote, sometimes nicknamed Wiimote, is the primary controller for Nintendos Wii console. ...

  • Standard - uses the Wii Remote by itself.
  • Sharp Shooter - uses the Nunchuk attachment's analog control to place the ball.
  • Control Freak - uses the Nunchuk's analog stick to control the player's position.
