Hey everyone! I’m here to talk about my experience with the first game on the Oculus Quest, Eleven Table Tennis.
Starting off, this game is made by Beatshapers, known for many other titles such as StarDrone VR and ZType. This game is their new release on the Oculus Quest store after launching it on the Rift earlier this year
In this game, you will play a Table Tennis match with your opponent in a 1v1 setting on a court. You can choose from many different types of courts, including official ones used in the Olympics, and have different music to listen to while playing- 3 songs per map.
You face off against a CPU player or a second player on the same unit
First of all, this game is very fun. I have played real Table Tennis before and it is just as good in this virtual reality. The physics of the ball feel great, and you can perform many different types of shots- topspin, backspin, lobs, smashes…
The game is great for what it sets out to do- provide an accurate Table Tennis simulation, with some music and different courts.
However, there are some issues…
The first issue I had was that the game doesn’t tell you how to play. You can download the manual, but this isn’t just hard to find, it also starts with instructions on how to play another game that isn’t this one.
Another issue I had with the game is that you can’t choose your own music, there are only 3 options, and they all sound very similar. It would be cool if they could add more songs in the future or let us listen to our own music while playing
The third issue I had was that the game felt very slow at times, and it felt like the opponent AI was trying to make it easy for me. This didn’t bug me too much, but I feel like if they could re-balance the difficulty a bit more this would be an even better experience.
The final issue I have with the game is that you can’t choose your court to play on. You simply pick between three completely different courts, and the game doesn’t let you go into them at all
Overall, this game isn’t super long but I still think it’s worth checking out if you’re looking for a realistic Table Tennis experience. It’s great to see games like this being released on the Quest, it only makes me more excited for VR in the future.
Score: 7/10 Rating: Good
