OK, I've only played about 20 different titles on Wii - and haven't really been all that impressed. But THIS... THIS game MADE the Wii. Everyone got involved... very competitive, yet playable by kids of all ages. Played well into the night every night we had it. I highly recommend this game, especially if the Wii novelty has kinda worn off for you.

This is the best table tennis game for the Wii. Balls of Fury sucks compared to this. This has everything the X-box version has except for the online play. There are 3 different controls. One using just the wii-mote, and the other two use the wii-mote and nunchuck. The game has a great soundtrack, great multiplayer, and great single player modes. Rockstar did a good job porting this to Wii.
Overall I find this game very enjoyable. Rockstar really went to great lengths to create a realistic (as much as a video game can) table tennis game. Single player is okay, but where the game shines is in two people playing eachother.
Good: Graphics are nice and smooth. No framerate issue even when throwing down in a fast paced match. The Wii controls are great, if not awesome. There are several different control modes, coming down to if you want to use just the Wiimote or the Wiimote and the nunchuk together, both of which offer excellent shot control, spin control, and power control. This really is a great game for two people play together. My wife and I have running battles now to see who is the best. Also, something else Rockstar took advantage of is the speaker in the Wiimote, which if you have ever played table tennis before you will be surprised to hear how perfectly the Wiimote sounds just like a "whooshing" paddle.
Bad: Single player is a bit weak, not very many opponents.
