I thought the game was great. A fresh new type of game for the 360. Great gameplay, graphics, sound, and controls. The single player was good and a lot of things to unlock was addictive at first but got very old after a while. Playing against a friend or over Xbox Live is probably the best thing about this game. The could have been better with a Create A Player mode. Overall I give this a seven. Great multiplayer but there could have more single player fetures.

I really like this game. The controls are very simple and easy to learn and the graphics are excellent. The online play is also very good and lag free most of the time. It's also the only table tennis game on the market.
The reason I gave it a five is because of the A.I. It's very strange sometimes. If you are doing the medium circuit and are fairly good at the game, it's way too easy for the first 4 matches. Then, suddenly, the game gets a mind of its own and it completely kills you. Randomly on some matches the A.I. takes steroids and it becomes a demonic ping pong machine.
Matches like these, to say the least, are extremely frustrating and near impossible if you aren't some sort of expert at the game. Several times I wanted to snap the disc in half. Anyway, I would reccomend you get this. It's the only table tennis game for the 360 and it's great if you can ignore the frustrating A.I.
