Want to know something that’s always fascinated us? The second-tier sports games. Every console has its blockbusters like FIFA and NBA, but what about those sports that aren’t necessarily household names? We’re talking about rugby, cricket, and, yes, volleyball. Well here’s an interesting new release: Spike Volleyball for the PlayStation 4.
There have been volleyball games on PlayStation before, but they’ve historically included the Dead or Alive cast. This is more of a simulation of the sport, with 50 national teams and a campaign. The production values are very poor, but we’ve been playing this one for review and the gameplay loop isn’t awful. Check back for our verdict.
