Game Over: Table Tennis

Rockstar

Xbox 360

Overview:Grab your paddle and get knee deep in the competitive world of Ping-Pong--I mean, table tennis.

Gameplay: I wasn’t sure what to expect from this game because, to be perfectly honest, I’m not the biggest fan of table tennis. But after my first tournament, I was screaming out my own victory chants and rolling on the floor in delight. In the tournament mode, you play circuits against a variety of players in different locations. The more you win, the more items you unlock. There’s also an exhibition mode where you can play against individual players in non-ranked matches you set up. The controls are simple, but remember it’s all about the way you hit the ball. Try out the different options of delivering --back spin, top spin, left and right spins, and soft serve. Once you get these dialed, it’s time to bust out the sweatbands and annihilate your foreign competitors.

Graphics:A+

Sound:A good mix of beats that are sometimes overshadowed by the haters in the audience. Who knew fans of table tennis were so rowdy?

Players:1--2

Overall Rating:A perfect 10.
