not for a table tennis player

Summary: I am a table tennis player, not a good professional, but above the average players. However, I found the product has two big problems. 1. its timing is too different than the real table tennis. If you use your experience from your real table tennis, you cannot play this product. 2. its way of playing is too different than the real table tennis. Again, if you use your real-life way, you will be totally lost.
Summary: I had a chance to play this game and being a fan of table tennis, I thought it could do no wrong. Boy was I mistaken. If you want real time controls, you're better off playing Pong. I'm serious. What's the point of a table tennis game where you flick your wrist 2 seconds before the character swings the paddle. The fact that it's not 1 to 1 motion is a huge disappointment.
Summary: This game is impossible to play and is very difficult to use. I bought the paddles and it was a waste of money. I am going to trade in the game for Wii sports resort or Mario Kart. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME, if you do you will be extremely disappointed and confused on how to play it.
Summary: 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.
Summary: To be a grand master, unstoppable opponent in Rockstar's Table Tennis for the Wii, you need to be able to shake the wiimote steadily. That's all. If you own or have access to a paint can shaker, simply attach your remote and turn it on. Congratulations. You are now invincible. This *almost* isn't even a video game. The manual and training mode assure me that careful spin selection and timing are imperative for successful play.
Summary: It is very slow to begin. It is necessary to use many buttons. This way one does not play the ping pong. It is for a single player, you cannot play against a friend. It is boring and heavy because you have to learn a lot. It is not natural, for this I don't like.
Summary: No disrespect to the supplier, who delivered well within the promised timescale and for a great price, but... ...the game sucks. Dreadful response to controller movements - you could shut your eyes and wave the controller about and still win or lose as many points. Graphics and sound are very good, but they can't save this turkey. Compared to the excellent (but admittedly arcadey) table tennis game in Sports Resort, this game pales into invisibility.
