The first 10 minutes : Table Tennis

The first 10 minutes : Table Tennis

Table Tennis has been released this week in the US and in Europe, and a rather nice $40/40 euros price. At this price we get what's certainly the best demo of what "next-gen" is all about graphically, but also with the sound and of course the animation. The single player mode is very short, but the main point of this game is to play it with a friend, or even better on Xbox Live where it really shines. All my games so far have been lag free, and great fun. I really recommend everyone to give this game a try!
Update : Added the last game of a match between me and SnakeX on Xbox Live.

Haha, watched the video and it seems pretty fun. I'm going to try this game through GameFly.

In real pingis the players wont stand that close when the players are smashings...same here?

Comparing this to Pong it's hard to imagine what games will look like 20-30 years from now.

Yeah, it's so tense.

I was playing with a friend of mine and we did something like 120 rallies before someone got the point.

If you have a 360 it's a must have if you into tennis or sports games, it's really easy to pick up and play and the gameplay has deep elements such as what spins to use on certain moves.

Yup. If you play against someone who knows what he's doing you'd better step back quite a bit when he's going for a smash.

Incredibly polished game. I didn't expect that from Rockstar.

Thanks for the movie blim. I love the "first 10min" series of movies.

This game looks really good and seems like a lot of fun too :D
Commented on 2006-05-27 21:39:00
Holy balls! That's the best animation and clothing physics I've EVER seen in a game, and on top of that it looks so damn fun aswell.

Seems you're pretty good aswell there Blim, I've read elsewhere that Jesper can be a real pain to beat.

It's a brilliant game, online is awesome, can get seriously frantic at times, only problem is i can't sometimes tell the difference between yellow and green, certain colours appear on the ball to tell you what kind of spin it's got on it so that you can counterspin but it's hard to tell sometimes, apart from that though it's great.

Indeed, the cloth physics are simply unbelievable looking.
Commented on 2006-05-27 22:01:46

My money is on a ping-pong table in the break room.

I asked for that in all next gen game before 360 was out,give me some cloth physics that would be next gen for me :)
Commented on 2006-05-27 23:28:11
yay, great vid.
you could see you was getting better as the game went on.
I bet a months practice and too good players would be a right blast.
Another title to thrash Optimus and Jolli at over live :)

great video, deffo getting this one.
Commented on 2006-05-28 02:13:04
Truly this game looks fun, but the ball is slow. When they smash from the forehand the ball always run too slow and it looks really stupid. But anyway GG.
Commented on 2006-05-28 02:53:56
i love this first 10 minutes stuff! $40/€40, not bad. i always wonder, though...why are games always cheaper in the US compared to Europe?
edit- just watched it, adn man it's much, much better than i thought it would be. looks really fun.
Commented on 2006-05-28 03:01:47
Okay after seeing 9:56 onwards from the first video I'm now DEFINETLY buying this game without a shadow of a doubt.

I'll be picking this game up next week. To be honest this might be the best we've ever seen blim play a game :P In my honest opinion this kills the wii tennis game.
