Outlaw Volleyball: Remixed PS2 Review
31 May 2010
Excerpt: Having recently reviewed Outlaw Tennis and showered it with praise we were therefore looking forward to spending some time with the Outlaw version of Volleyball. The original Outlaw Volleyball was released on the Xbox ages ago, and this PS2 edition is a remix, which includes brand new courts and exclusive modes, hence the title Outlaw Volleyball: Remixed (duh!).
Excerpt: Graphically, the characters of Global Star Software's Outlaw Volleyball: Remixed look great. The believably, yet cartoony styles that the Outlaw franchise has developed work very well. However, the ball was dropped when it comes to the environments around the characters. Most are equivalent to PS1 graphics, at best, with washed out textures and very basic surroundings.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: As far as egregious use of the word "remix" goes, Outlaw Volleyball Remixed is definitely guilty of abusing it, possibly even more so than the shudder-worthy Sprite Remix Aruba Jam. Going by the Hypnotix definition, a remix is when you take something that's old enough to walk (Outlaw Volleyball for the Xbox came out in 2003), add some inconsequential features (two new courts; dozens of new costume colors), and turn the graphics ugly.
Pros: It's cheap!, The volleyball action itself is actually pretty fun and accessible
Conclusion: Good but not great, it should be remembered that this game arrives at a budget price, and as such is a bit of a cracker when compared to some other over-publicised and overrated sports games that we've all been daft enough to buy in the past.
Pros: The sexy, bouncy Laydees, There’s a really good Volleyball game in there, Lots of characters and courts to unlock
Excerpt: A remix is a reordering or change of things that came before. This game is the remix of Outlaw Volleyball, but sadly DarkZero never bothered to review the original game. Another shocker is that this reviewer has actually never played the original game at all. All of this leads me to believe we should throw that remixed tag away and just review the game on its own merit, because let’s face it, we’re not exactly sure what the game is actually remixing and we don’t want to...
Summary: Outlaw Volleyball: Remixed is a solid game of volleyball let down by average graphics and some repetitive speech after some playing. If you're on a budget and/or looking for an online sports title then this may be worth picking up, just don't expect anything groundbreaking.
Excerpt: SANS CHEMISE, SANS PANTALON,...SANS MERCI ! Remix n'est autre que le cri de guerre des volleyeurs déjantés figurant dans ce jeu de volley époustouflant. Choisissez votre équipe, votre terrain, votre bikini et optez pour l'attitude " outlaw " enrichie par de nouvelles caractéristiques de...
Excerpt: La série sportive des Outlaw continue avec le second volet de Outlaw Volleyball, un titre qui n'avait pourtant pas réussi à percer. Complètement orienté vers l'arcade, le "remixed" ne se veut différent à aucun niveau de son aîné, ce qui nous amène à nous poser cette question : pourquoi avoir fait un clone d'un jeu qui n'avait déjà rien pour lui ?
