    A very fun game that will hook you in once you start playing. While the graphics could use some work, after getting into the game, you won't even notice the little touches that seem to be missing. You'll just be having fun.
  2. It has a career mode that does give it some replay value. Other than that, its esoteric gameplay suggests one and only one thing -- if you either love to watch or play beach volleyball, give it a shot. If not, budget-priced notwithstanding, you may want to look elsewhere.
  3. While it lacks originality and has rather bland graphics, Power Spike is still an entertaining, budget-priced volleyball game with a relatively small learning curve, which means it'll be easy for players of all skill levels to jump right in.
  4. Has a few brief flashes of fun but no sustained action. Fanatics of the sport may keep it for awhile, but most gamers will recapture the hard disk space as quickly as possible.
  5. With its forgettable Practice mode (the same game without scores on a really poorly rendered beach), ugly graphics, dropped frames, and mediocrity at nearly every other level, it's easy to recommend passing this title up.
