3-D Table Sports is a collection of three classic table games adaptations:
Foosball (Table Soccer) - You spin, pass, block and score with keyboard and mouse controls. The pole you control will be highlighted in red or gold, and in beginner mode pole switching is automatic to the pole that is nearest to the ball. First player to score 10 points wins.
Slamhockey (Air Hockey) - You control the paddle with your mouse, and the first player to score 10 points wins. In battle mode you can cross the halfway line into the adversary side of the table.
Power Hoops - A basketball-inspired table with 35 holes and up to 8 balls. Using the keyboard cursors or your mouse, you select a hole with a ball. You fill a power gauge (displayed under the court) by holding down the space bar or the left mouse button. Releasing them flings the ball towards the hoops. You can play a game of 20, 40, 60 or 80 points.
3D Table Sports is an okay collection of indoor sports games. Indoor sport games are few and far between, and although this is not a bad game, it is unfortunately not a game that will stop you from looking for a better one.
The game offers 3 games for one or two players over the Internet: the college favorites Foosball and Air Hockey (called "Slamhockey" here), and less popular Power Hoops. The problem is that none of the games really stands out. Slamhockey, for example, is not as much fun as Broderbund's good old Shufflepuck Cafe. Each game features fully rendered 3D graphics and many play options, but the gameplay feels bland and uninteresting. It is also not very realistic: in Slamhockey, again, the AI player advances right up to the table. Since nobody has 10-12 foot arms in real life, this is both strange and distracting. All in all, a fun diversion you will enjoy for a few minutes, before getting back to other, better sports games. SporTime's much older Indoor Sports Volume 1 is far superior than this newer game.
