Nintendo World Report has posted their impressions of Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis.
"Rockstar clearly tried to make the default controls simple and easy to learn. Not only are they handled exclusively with Wii Remote, your character also moves around automatically, akin to Wii Sports. Adding to the simplicity is the fact that you don’t even need to time your shots. As long as you swing the remote while the ball is coming at you, your character automatically performs the shot afterwards, if the ball comes in range. The problem is that sometimes seconds go by from the moment you swing the remote to the moment the ball is hit. You feel strangely detached from the game when seeing that your physical movements, which are supposed to be a simulation of actually hitting the ball, don’t immediately translate into corresponding movements from your character on-screen. Sometimes, the game doesn’t even register that you performed the swing at all."
