The use of the Four Score is also a boon for this type of game, and creates quite an atmosphere if you can find three friends to cram around the TV. Even though it would be nice to pop over to California, this is one sport that you can fully experience on your Nintendo.

Super Spike Volleyball offers plenty of thrills and spills! The presentation is superb, with a huge variety of options that let you tailor the game to suit your requirements, and loads of computer teams to challenge you. The graphics and sound are also great, but where this scores highest is in the playability. The control method is fairly easy to master and there are a huge variety of moves available, meaning that novices can easily get into the game, but there's plenty of opportunity for experts to develop wicked playing strategies!

Liegt man auf der Gewinnerstraße, so beflügeln einen die heiteren Musiken, das Match noch höher zu gewinnen, wohingegen die Verlierer vor Frust am liebsten die Dudelei ausschalten würden. Alles in allem gehört Super Spike V’Ball jedoch technisch wie vom Gameplay zu den besten und spaßigsten Sportgames auf dem NES.
Technos Vier-Spieler Vorzeigetitel hält genau was es verspricht: Hat man sich an der heimischen Konsole zusammen gefunden kommen echt taktische Kämpfe auf, die auch heute noch so richtig Spaß machen. Auch im Einzelspielermodus hat Technos nicht gekleckert und hält den Spieler mit verschiedenen Ligen bei Laune, die allerdings leider durch die doch sehr knallharte K.I. ausgebremst werden. Natürlich macht der Computergegner gelegentlich Fehler wie falsches Aufschlagen oder Schläge ins Aus, trotzdem dominiert die Computer- K.I. die meisten Matches und ihr werdet viel Lehrgeld zahlen müssen, bevor ihr den Siegespokal in den Händen halten dürft. Freunde von Mehrspielerduellen lege ich ganz besonders diesen Titel ans Herz, da selbst wer mit dem Sport nichts anfangen kann ein paar schöne Stunden mit den Kumpels vor der Konsole verbringen wird.
The Video Game Critic
Here's a decent volleyball game that attempts to improve on Kings of the Beach, but comes up a little short. The players are large and muscular, and the side-scrolling courts are finely detailed. I really enjoyed the variety of backdrops, ranging from sunny Daytona to flashy Las Vegas. Super Spike wisely employs the same basic control scheme as Kings of the Beach, making it easy to set, jump, and spike the ball. And boy can these guys jump high! Super Spike's action is smooth enough, but sometimes it's hard to tell if the ball has been blocked or if it hit the net. A visual marker is used to show where the ball will land, and while this makes the ball easier to track, it also eliminates much of the suspense. The music and sound effects are pretty lame. Super Spike is a respectable effort overall, but for sheer playability it can't quite match Kings of the Beach.
All Game Guide
All in all, Super Spike V'Ball represents the sport well. I'd say that any fan of the sport should love the game, but -- not really being a fan of the sport -- I think I'm kind of out of place in making such a statement. But it's probably true.
