    Want to play volleyball? Go to the beach and stick to the real thing; this game sucks.
  2. Daily Radar
    A real waste of the attractive Gabrielle Reece license.
  3. Makes a good attempt, but its inconsistencies and shoddy control detract from the overall experience. It has the benefit of being instantly playable, but on the flip side, the game is also instantly forgettable.
  4. It isn't necessarily a bad game, it’s not exactly the kind of game that’ll keep you riveted for hours on end, either.
  5. Although the game is somewhat entertaining, the graphics make it almost unplayable.
  6. While it fits the sport very well, this is one sport meant for playing in the sun and not on a console.
  7. Credit should be given to Infogrames for even producing a volleyball game, but Power Spike's a bit like getting sand in your shorts -- not much fun at all.
  8. 65
    Normally, graphics follow gameplay in our list of priorities, but better animation, better character models, a decent frame rate, and well, a lot of other things, could have made this a more complete volleyball experience.
  9. They have the right idea with the Virtua Tennis approach but failed to come even close with the graphics to match. Shoddy graphics ruin this game ultimately.
  10. A bad frame-rate, severely choppy animation, and a hard-to-spot aiming cursor are just a few things that seriously hinder Power Spike's promising but flawed gameplay.

    This game is very poor.
