AmigaThe One (Aug, 1989)
The graphics are of a very high standard and add to the overall feel no end. They're simple enough, but just oozing with style and humour, from the nude models on the beach to the players' quiff hairstyles! Things are equally folly in the sound department with umpteen heavy rock tunes and catchy jingles coupled with plenty of sampled "oohs" and "aahs" adding to the enjoyment. The emphasis here is on fun, and there's certainly more than enough of that on show.

So darf man sieh nun auch als Amiga-User auf dieses wirklich spannende, spaßige und hochklassige Sportspiel freuen. Ich glaube, kaum einer wird es bereuen, wenn er das Ding in seine Softothek aufnimmt! OCEAN - well done!

Beach Volley, the first Ocean France product, is graphically and sonically engaging, and although the sport (what with our weather) is a minority interest, this game could do something for increasing its popularity.

Zusammenfassend möchte ich anmerken, daß es sich bei BEACH VOLLEY von OCEAN um eine bemerkenswertes Sportspiel handelt, das jeden Interessierten in dieser Richtung gefallen dürfte. Es ist rassig, hat Klasse, besitzt gute Grafiken, eine anständige Animation und einen hervorragenden Sound (stammt von Jean Baudlot). Ein weiteres, wunderbares Sportspiel, das uns wieder einmal lange vor den Rechnern in Bann halten wird.

Das Fazit in aller Kürze: Beach Volley ist ein durchwegs gelungenes Game und ein absolutes Muß für jeden Sportspiel-Fan!

London's top Volley team are back on the ST, and are as athletic as ever. Graphically as good as the Amiga offering, but the sound suffers the usual malady of being squeeky. Also missing are the excellent speech samples that introduce each venue, but that is a small niggle Beach Volley is a fun way to acquaint yourself with a sport that is big over the pond, but is sadly under-exposed here.

AmigaAmiga Action (Nov, 1989)
When I first heard the amazing sound and saw the outstanding graphics, Beach Volley really looked like it was going to be a corker. How wrong I was. This game got everything going for it, except the most important thing: game play - it's just impossible. It doesn't usually take me long to pick up a game, but I couldn't even get off the first level on this one. Beach Volley is a state of the art game presentation-wise, but it's just too frustrating to enjoy.

Still, Beach Volley is the best representation of volleyball seen on a computer so far. Maybe the true potential of the sport is doomed never to be fully realised in digital format.

[Budget re-release] It's incredible that this was once £25. Don't let the cartoon graphics trick you into buying this poorly-disguised variation on a poor tennis game.
