"Apparently spiking is a major part of volleyball"

Have you ever noticed a volleyball game on any of the current consoles? You probablyhaven't.... that's because there are no volleyball games around!! As a matter of fact, SuperSpike Volleyball is the only volleyball video game that I know of. And how does it fare?Well, volleyball fans won't be dispaointed...

GRAPHICS 4/10
The backgrounds have a very nice beach look to them, and there is somewhat of a varietyin the backgrounds. The character designs are solid, and the scoreboard in the backgroundis good, but overall the graphics are pretty plain.

CONTROL 7/10
The control in the game is solid and responsive overall, but the spiking mechanics in thegame are hard to perform, weird feeling, and overall not good.

GAMEPLAY 6/10
You control a volleyball team (of 2 players) who go around on a tour playing variousteams. The rules are just like real volleyball, and the game has all of the needed movesincluding digs, spikes, and other types of volleyball moves.

FUN FACTOR 5/10
Volleyball fans will love this game, but non supporters won't find much to interest them.This game will be adored by all volleyball fans, simply because its the only choice intown.
