Summer Heat Beach Volleyball

Playstation Illustrated
31 March 2004
  • Excerpt: Well Tecmo has really opened the flood gates now, haven't they? When Dead or Alive: Extreme Beach Volleyball was first announced, many people in the game world, including myself, snickered. At first look, the game looked like little more than a beautifully rendered excuse to get the most out of DOA 's unique 'bounce' engine.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: A fun multiplayer game that unfortunately falls short of being in the same class as its peers. Regardless, the PS2's only current volleyball game manages to appeal with a vibrant palette and an admirable multiplayer lark. With no clear rival to DOAX on the PS2, Summer Heat will do a fine job for the time being.

Summer Heat Beach Volleyball

Gamecell
7 November 2003
  • Conclusion: All in all, an excellent fun beach game that'll hopefully remind us of the summer just gone. And most importantly for this genre, it has plenty of bikini and swimsuit-clad boobs and a zoomable slo-mo replay mode too.
  • Pros: A surprisingly skilful and addictive game awaits., And despite the game's rules, there's LOTS of bouncing.
  • Cons: None really., Some player stat improvement (other than new sunglasses or a new bikini) would have been cool, but it's just a beach volleyball game.

Summer Heat Beach Volleyball - Review (PS2)

Konsolen-World
26 March 2005
  • Conclusion: Mit Summer Heat Beach Volleyball wird jeder viel Spaß bekommen. Hier wurde ein Spiel entwickelt was als echtes Sportspiel bezeichnet werden kann. Das liegt zum einen an dem sehr guten Gameplay und zum anderen an der wirklich guten Steuerung. Unfaire Ballwechsel kommen so gut wie nie zustande und so ist jeder Fehler schnell erklärt. Die Vielfalt im Spiel ist dabei so groß das man kaum etwas vermisst.

Review: "Summer Heat Beach Volleyball" (PS2)

gamingxp.com
3 August 2003
  • Excerpt: Beach Volleyball-Spiele müssen ja immer aus zwei recht unterschiedlichen Standpunkten betrachtet werden. Zum einem ist natürlich das Gameplay sehr wichtig, aber mindestens genau so wichtig ist das Sex-Appeal. Bisher waren die Rollen recht eindeutig verteilt, "Beach Spikers" konnte mit seinem hervorragenden Gameplay begeistern, "DOA: Extreme Beach Volleyball" hingegen war im Kern eine Barbie-Simulation.
  • Pros: Sehr gute Steuerung, Zuverlässige KI, Tolle Multiplayer-Schlachten
  • Cons: Singleplayerpart wird schnell langweilig, Mäßige Optik, Leichte Kameraprobleme

  • Conclusion: Summer Heat Beach Volleyball ist definitiv die neue Referenz in Sachen Volleyballsimulation. Da das Spiel aber nicht nur den reinen Simulationsaspekt bietet, sondern auch mit einer gehörigen Portion Spaß aufwartet, kann ich hier jedem, der nur das geringste Interesse an diesem tollen Sport zeigt, den Titel wärmstens ans Herz legen.
