Come on Rockstar - even Wii Sports have left/right hand option - this is one of the most basic options that should have been included.
The control setting I played on was very nuanced, almost to a fault. I say this because at first the controls appeared to be broken; it was only after some time with them that the true depth became apparent.
Serving was tricky at first - you swing your arm while pressing "A" to initiate the serve and then you must swing again in time with a meter to complete the serve. Nothing in the build told me about the second swing though, so I dropped a lot of balls before I figured it out on my own.
Once the ball is actually in play the game becomes much more accessible. I tried the different control schemes and, of the three, the most enjoyable actually seemed to be the beginner controls. This control scheme oversimplifies the game a little too-much for single-player play, but for multi-player it turned the game into a much more fun version of the Wii Play table tennis game.
As I mentioned before, after some time the controls began to make sense and things that were seemingly impossible at first, like serving, became easy and intuitive. Characters swung in the same direction we did and with an appropriate amount of power and better movement than Wii Sports: Tennis or Wii Play: Table Tennis. I was able to sustain quite a few fun volleys and become comfortable enough with the game to start introducing trash talk into the mix. Since this is the measure of any decent sports title, I think this game succeeds where it needs to, with the time needed to adjust to the controls well worth it.
This game is incredibly fun, but one has to get past the learning and baby steps opponents.
The graphics are muddy and dark... the game feels unfinished. The first time I jumped into a tournament I laughed... the stadium is totally empty yet they have a large audience in the soundtrack... which is kind of ironic, considering the game is a lot like the stadium. Empty but trying to be loud. I couldn't play this monstrosity for more than 5 minutes. After getting my butt handed to me over and over by the very first opponent, I knew this game was not for me. The controls are frustrating to say the least. The game pretty much forces you to be in the right place and predict where your opponent will serve, or else you just won't get there in time. It doesn't work at all like real table tennis, where you'd expect to stay near the center of the table and then move to where the ball goes... nope, you need to be there already. Then there is the camera which is just awful... the character takes up most of the table view, so if the ball is hit directly to you, good luck seeing the bounce to hit it back. This is why I said that table tennis games need to be first person.
If you're looking for a close-to-the-real-thing simulation... look somewhere else.Read more ›
It's an ok game but if they had made it more like Wii Sports Tennis it would have been an improvement.

Wii sports resort table tennis plays better. It takes quite a bit of time to get the feel of using the d-pad to put english on the ball rather than your own wrist action.Published on October 16, 2013 by drephi
