Description: VR Ping Pong is a simulator that thanks to VR technology, and with the help of SteamVR Controllers, brings a ping pong table into your lounge. Using 1:1 scale with virtual reality, you will have the sensation of play ping pong in reality: Virtual reality teleports you inside voxel-style environments that until today you could only dream to visit. Each environment is styled as a stadium with fully animated audience members making for more immersive and addictive gameplay. the changes in the audience and the stadium is on the fly to increase the player’s degree of immersion without ever distracting from the play area; during breaks, you can have fun discovering all of the hidden easter eggs in the surrounding environment.

Review: At first, I thought this game had poor responsive controls and it was those that were making me play like a 1-year-old, but having since tried to play Ping Pong in real life while on holiday I realise that it was me that was the terrible player, not the game at all. But this is not a serious Ping Pong simulator at all, it’s somewhere between a simulator and a fun arcade game and once you realise that you start to have a lot more fun with this game. As per usual with older Steam VR games I feel it is a little overpriced, to say the least, but I will admit to having a good laugh with it. A multiplayer mode would be welcome, but it did keep me amused for several hours. It’s a fun retro-looking simulator that shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
