As with most sport sims, the best gameplay is saved for the two-player game. It is here that you can master your moves and prepare to thrash the computer back. While this can be a lot of fun, the poor control method lets the gameplay down. It can take ages to get the move you want, and when you do the ball has probably flown past you. The animation and graphics - where most sports games score highly - are very poor, with blurred graphics and slow animation. Disappointing for a console sports game.

Unfortunately, this conversion of the US beach-sport isn't nearly as fab as it could have been. The graphics are rather poor - flat, horizontally-scrolling court and the animation isn't particularly eye-catching. Sound is ok, but it hardly stretches the Megadrive's capabilities and yes, I'm afraid to say, gameplay is basic and ultimately dull. It may appeal to die-hard volleyball freaks - is there any such person?

Diese 1:1-Umsetzung des gleichnamigen PC-Engine-Titels macht niemanden so richtig glücklich. Das Volleyballgeschehen wird grafisch schlicht und unübersichtlich von der Seite gezeigt. Verdruß bereitet dem Normaleuropäer außerdem die Masse an japanischen Bildschirmtexten, die das Modul nahezu unspielbar machen.

Overall, this game, just like good ol' Pro Quarterback, makes me want to replay that scene from the movie Office Space where they smash the printer, except that instead of the printer, there are hundreds of copies of this game. Okay, it's not THAT bad, but it certainly isn't a good game at all and didn't make me want to play volleyball. Let alone SUPER Volleyball. Rum, coke, scantily-clad women and the beach are super volleyball, not this game.
