Super Dodgeball elicits complete joy every moment it’s being played. Well done, Kunio-kun. Well done.
The only slight drawback is the inability to select teams other than USA in single-player mode, and some sprite-flickering to account for the large amount of players on screen. That aside, this is an outstanding and supremely fun game for both the sports and action game crowd.

I’m happy to say that Super Dodge Ball has held up after all these years. It may appear simple on the surface but there is plenty of depth to its gameplay. This could have been very dull in execution (like the arcade) but instead is fully fleshed out and a worthy purchase.
Dodgeball is known by almost as many names and variations as there are schoolyards. There are three modes of play here with three skill levels in each mode.
Whether you play the computer teams going for the World Cup or your best friend from school, Super Dodge Ball is always a delightful challenge.

I thought this one was going to be amazing, instead it is only decent. I would love to talk to people who love this one to see what they do to keep it fun. For me, it is just too easy to be fun for more than a few minutes.

Now this is an original concept, and I think I like it! Super Dodge Ball is a contest between two teams playing in two connected boxed areas. Each box holds one team's "target players", with offensive players lining the perimeter. The goal is to knock out all of your opponent's target players, each of which has his own life meter. You can pass the ball around, jump, duck, and catch a ball thrown at you. There's nothing more satisfying than nailing an opponent in the back of his head! Graphics are not Super Dodge Ball's strong suit. There's a terrible amount of flicker, and the scrolling is extremely choppy. When you don't have the ball, your control is alternated between your players, which is confusing. But despite its flaws, this innovative game has become somewhat of a cult classic over the years.

Dodge Ball é um jogo de queimada, no qual você escolhe os jogadores da sua equipe de acordo com a habilidade.

A la frontière entre le sport de ballon et le sport de combat, le ballon prisonnier alors joué dans les cours d'école, débarque dans nos salons à travers la console de Nintendo. Et force est de constater que cette première adaptation vidéoludique est assez fidèle à l'expérience d'origine même si quelques modifications du règlement ont été apportées. Dommage que ce galop d'essai soit entaché par un contenu bien trop rachitique. Les matchs manquent d'intensité et participent à l'installation d'une certaine redondance. Super Dodge Ball se pratique donc non sans déplaisir mais ne vous laissera pas un souvenir impérissable.
Super Dodge Ball is not exactly your mainstream kind of game, but in this case that's not a negative. While the action may seem repetitive at first, the inclusion of special attack techniques brings a new dimension to the play. SDB has rough graphics and is fairly easy, but it does have some merit.
