There is one great thing about this game, and it's the gameplay. All the other reviews you read that say how addictive it is, well, they're true. In my opinion it doesn't look that excellent graphically but I didn't get a ping pong game for the graphics. And what I did get it for (gameplay) I'd say it handles pretty nicely. This is some of the most addictive gameplay I've played in a while. And yeah it only has exhibition and tournament mode but I mean what else do you really need in a dang ol' ping pong game. I'd say it's a definite rent and if you have xbox live or someone to always play with than it's a great multiplayer game. Like I said before, you'll buy (or rent) this game for one reason and that's it's gameplay.
Rockstar really hit it on the head with this title! Glad to see that Rockstar has finally figured out that they can build other titles other than GTA types! Rockstar hasn't overlooked any details in my opinion. The action is great, the players are well detailed and look great in HD. You can even see their sweat! The sound is superb as well as the background music tracks during fast action paddlin!
The game play gets a little old and repetitions, but it definitely gets difficult the further you proceed in the game. Thanks to the online play and tournament play modes you should be able to have fun with this for a good deal of time. I really can't see many drawbacks to the game, it is truly a well polished title. If only all titles were this well done.
