Whether you enjoy more of a sports simulation or a crazy spin on the genre, the heart of Outlaw Volleyball: Remixed has a very nice (and basic) gameplay element to it. The fact that you can play 4-player matches using a PS2 MultiTap (only 2 players Online) is a great incentive to pick this title up. So kick back with a few beers and some friends, and play the night away.
Outlaw Volleyball is an example of those games that shouldn’t work, but do. I was literally crying with laughter when I pulled this out of the post bag at the office, waiting to rip it to pieces and label it as a glorified sex toy. Well it is, but there’s some damn fine gameplay there too. Such a pity they didn’t bundle a one-handed controller with it…
This game could have been an essential summer title to own if a bit more effort was taken when rendering the backgrounds, as it is this is a great game that is let down in places. But is still one to own if you see it cheap enough.
Whoohoo! – At last a volleyball game that actually plays like volleyball, Certainly there have been some noble efforts at the game, but OV really makes you move the ball around the court like you really have to in the 2 on 2 game, and so you really come to rely on your team mate.
Let’s face it; volleyball isn’t much of a sport. That’s not to say it isn’t occasionally worth watching, but there’s a reason that it’s only shown on TV after midnight. Minor concerns like the score and who is actually playing who come second to factors such as who has the nicest bum and who has the jiggliest breasts.
We have to say that at this stage this looks like being the worst of the three titles in the Outlaw series on Playstation 2. Sure the humour is OK the first couple of plays but it soon becomes tiring. The graphics really are quite bland and the gameplay mediocre at best. If you're looking for some semi-adult styled sports action we certainly recommend Outlaw Golf 2 over this game and even Outlaw Tennis - which we'll have reviewed soon - too. Outlaw Volleyball Remixed is one only for die-hard volleyball fans, of those on a very tight budget.
The most frustrating thing about Outlaw Volleyball Remixed is that, were it not for the stupid posturing and the fact that it's a clunky port of a 2-year-old title, it's not inherently that bad of a game.
Outlaw Volleyball a un aspect positif, son mode championnat long et ses règles de jeu variées. Le problème c'est que tout le reste est mauvais. En plus d'un gameplay simpliste et de matches lents n'offrant aucune excitation, le jeu en rajoute une couche en exhibant des graphismes qui en dehors des cinématiques aguicheuses, semblent surgir d'un lointain passé.
Would we recommend Outlaw Volleyball Remixed? Probably not if you’re looking for something play after San Andreas. If, however, you enjoy tongue in cheek sports spoofs, scantily clad girls and, ahem, volleyball, then you’re in luck.
Volleyball, a sport traditionally seen at the Olympics when six-foot Amazonian types leap around the court in shorts, and their Brazilian cousins dive around in thongs in a large pile of sand. I hope they’ve got their graphics right for this one; it could be an interesting time.
Outlaw Volleyball Remixed for the PlayStation 2 is a port of the, now pretty old, Xbox game of a similar name. Outlaw Volleyball arrived on the Xbox in 2003 and was an entertaining, if somewhat crude arcade sports game. Since then, a few other games have graced the Outlaw series and things are starting to become a little dull. The fact that this port adds little new to the original game doesn't help matters.
Today’s saturated videogame market is often criticised for its blatant displays of style over substance. Yet, even though it’s true to say that glossy aesthetics alone do not guarantee a memorable gaming experience, some genres need not seek the critical comfort afforded by fleshy narrative, subtle undertones, and political or social commentary. Sports games, for example, thrive perfectly well on their graphic and gameplay capabilities while offering in-depth player creation, a host of statistics, and an authentic re-creation of a popular pastime. In this case, style over substance is certainly acceptable. Then we come to Outlaw Volleyball Remixed.
