- The graphics need more work and the gameplay is too basic. Music is ok, menus are slightly confusing. I don't like that the pads lose speed when switching movement direction.
- Music not to my taste, graphics below average. It looked like more effort went into the menus (which I found frustrating anyway) then the actual game. Really for something with the title "pong ultra" I would have expected more in-game features. It was fun for a minute or two but then lost it's appeal because of a lack of variation.
- Actually, I think it's quite a good pong game. I like the 4 player mode too. It's great fun with 3 other friends ;)
