Not since Forrest Gump has Table Tennis been this exciting (hardly an original joke, I know, but I'm tired - so give me a break okay?)! You know, when I first heard that Rockstar was making a table tennis game for the Xbox 360, I figured that - unless you could beat your opponent to death with that little paddle thing -I wouldn't be interested. Well, I was wrong (yeah, I found that shocking too!) because I can now say that I can't wait to give this bad boy some playing time.First of all, as you can see from these screenshots, the game is graphically stellar. This is one of the titles that really shows what can be done with the 360's power.
Secondly, and probably even more importantly, from all I have seen and heard, she plays beautifully too. Addictive gameplay, which is fun to pick up and play and even more fun to attempt to master, shall likely be this one's biggest forte.
The game is due to reach Australian retail shelves on the 26th of May. When it does, get your mates around for a few beers, pop Table Tennis into your 360 and you'll have yourselves a fine evening.
I've included a little bit of info about the game below. It is from the Rockstar Games website. If you want to read or see more about the game, click here.
