The reviews that claim that you can win simply by waving actually are TRUE, For the early (easy opponents), my 4 year old can put up a good fight, because you dont necessarily need to time your swing. The game is much deeper than that, and that is wherre some may get confused. As your opponents improve, it is important that you have learned the skills of “charging up”, “gaining focus” and creating spin, like real ping pong, the game is more about proper anticipation and movement as you progress.
This game is incredibly fun, but one has to get past the learning and baby steps opponents.

I got the chance to play an unfinished build of Rockstar’s Table Tennis for the Wii at PAX.
The control setting I played on was very nuanced, almost to a fault. I say this because at first the controls appeared to be broken; it was only after some time with them that the true depth became apparent.
Serving was tricky at first – you swing your arm while pressing “A” to initiate the serve and then you must swing again in time with a meter to complete the serve. Nothing in the build told me about the second swing though, so I dropped a lot of balls before I figured it out on my own.
Once the ball is actually in play the game becomes much more accessible. I tried the different control schemes and, of the three, the most enjoyable actually seemed to be the beginner controls. This control scheme oversimplifies the game a little too-much for single-player play, but for multi-player it turned the game into a much more fun version of the Wii Play table tennis game.
As I mentioned before, after some time the controls began to make sense and things that were seemingly impossible at first, like serving, became easy and intuitive. Characters swung in the same direction we did and with an appropriate amount of power and better movement than Wii Sports: Tennis or Wii Play: Table Tennis. I was able to sustain quite a few fun volleys and become comfortable enough with the game to start introducing trash talk into the mix. Since this is the measure of any decent sports title, I think this game succeeds where it needs to, with the time needed to adjust to the controls well worth it.

Bought the game with a lot of excitement since I am an avid fan of table tennis.. only to be hugely disappointed… the game doesn’t have any option to select left hand as the racket holding hand. This completely ruins everything because if you play with the remote in your left hand, none of your moves/motion are “copied” correctly, not even close.
Come on Rockstar – even Wii Sports have left/right hand option – this is one of the most basic options that should have been included.
