A one-, two-or four-player Nintendo version of beach volleyball, this game strikes a fairly realistic variation on the actual sport as it might be executed by four players who can all jump like Michael Jordan.
Players are represented by volley-bailers with various skills—”Al and John” are called “former soldiers [who] have a lot of power but have poor defensive technique and are pretty slow.”
The two-player function—two humans against the computer—allows for more real teamwork than most Nintendo games, and it’s tough enough to challenge most nonobsessed videogame fanatics. (Nintendo, $39.95)
