i keep thinking that the wii sports games are going to be as interactive and easy to use as the wii sports that came with the unit. i have been relatively disappointed so far. this is no exception. you might like it if you are really into table tennis and you don't mind the.....for lack of a better term.....weird gameplay/graphics. i personally was looking for something that didn't take itself too seriously and may be was a little more user friendly. i didn't find it here. the sad thing is, as much as you might really try at this game, one of the earlier reviewers made a very valid point when he said that his kid found out that you can win pretty much every time just by waving the controller back and forth! a very weak attempt......

i love ping pong but when you swing the guy does not swing, its not in real time, you cant curve it or move like you would in real ping pong....real dissapointed, and even if you use the nunchuck to move your guy, he shuffles and skips, doesnt move fluidly so you miss the ball...the wii messed another one up again
I played the demo on the xbox 360 but when I saw this I was like cool. No, it's not. Not even close. Very bad port, movement for shots is poor as is play control. You don't really need to move your hand in the correct way and the serve is literally programmed wrong in every instance I have seen. The Wii seems harder to program for it's special controller and this game is another in a long list of games that make very weak use of the Wimote. I got bored after about 2 hours, felt bad I played it that long.
