RAGE on Wii - Hands-On with Table Tennis

Gameplayer had a chance yesterday to play the upcoming Wii release Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis. Other than introducing motion-based controls to this awesome sport simulation, it also provides our first look at how GTA IV's RAGE engine will work on the Wii.

"This new Wii version may not have all the eye candy of the Xbox 360 original, but it's got all the depth, and added visceral oompf into the bargain. In short, it's Table Tennis like you've never played it before."

I wonder if it PLAYS like real table tennis. Like almost perfect 1-1 swings. OR is this like wii tennis where it pretends and then fails to be 1-1.

Can someone answer this question?

Sorry no one can answer that question yet. This is the first hands on article I've read about Table Tennis for the Wii. It sounds pretty good for the only thing missing from the transition from 360 to Wii is the players sweat and shadows/reflections. That's pretty good. The 3 different ways to control sounds good and should add some variety of play but we will still have to wait for another hands on or review to hear about how the control plays out.

oh yea and so what's up with it using Rage? I tried to open the link but it didn't bring me anywhere. Why is it uber for it to use RAGE?

if you watch last weeks episoade of on the spot on gamespot.com, they had an in studio demo of the game and the dev said straight tax no bs that thius game is NOT running on the rage engine.

its evident when you look at the majorly downgraded graphics.

the other disturbing factor is that you do not control the players movements....just their swings. thy move from side to side on their own.

"the other disturbing factor is that you do not control the players movements....just their swings. thy move from side to side on their own."

That is only 1 of 3 different control methods. Kind of like EA's family play. They have another way where you can control where the ball goes after the hit and they have another one where you can get to move the players around all by yourself!

I could be mistaken but I thought I remember reading somewhere (Games Radar I think) that one of the 3 control schemes allows you to control where your player moves.

EDIT: Beat to the punch by PS360WII =)
