 Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis for Xbox 360 Review - Xbox 360 Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis Review
As one of the first commercially available video games, Pong seems to have an almost academic importance, but not enough credit is given to the simple elegance of its design--two bar-shaped "paddles," one square "ball"--something that was born largely out of technical limitations.
Once the ball is in play, the game puts a faint color-coded halo around the ball that clues you in on which type of spin your opponent used, and you can take that momentum and throw it right back at them by countering with the same shot type.
Some games might put a premium on lots of background noise, but it seems like this minimalist presentation is beneficial to the pacing and intensity of the gameplay.

Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis is fast and fun, but it's definitely something you need to play against friends or over Xbox Live.
The answer, simply, is no. Rockstar, the innovators of open-ended, sandbox gameplay (as exemplified in their outstanding Grand Theft Auto series), have come up with a title that is notable for its extremely tight focus.

So, trust Rockstar Games to not only go against this perception, but to also end up delivering a game in a near perfect form that gamers didn't even realise they were missing.

 GameSpy: Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis Review
Rockstar San Diego delivers the most minimalicious game of the year.
And ultimately, Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis is really nothing more than a fun game that, in spite of its simplicity, is still a much better buy than quite a few of the full-priced titles for 360 that claim to do more and deliver a lot less.
Again, minimalism seems to be the driving theme of the game, from its simplified gameplay to the stripped-down Detroit techno on the soundtrack.

Value : Compared to the usual 360 game price, you can't complain, but it is disappointing to not see much of a career mode offering, almost solely focusing on the live component, but as a 40 dollar game, it's easily the best of the bunch.

I recommend this game to those fans of the Warriors who have always wanted to join with the gang and loot through the streets of 1979's New York City or to GTA style game fans who want to finally play a third person game based on a movie worth playing.
The second half of the game is a replay of the movie from start to finish - it's a nice tribute, and you know how its going to turn out - with the notable exception of the finale - it doesn't end nearly as ceremoniously as the movie, but it's fun just the same.
