You, sir, have obviously never played SuperSpike. Download it for an emu and give it a whirl. It was crazy fun. Try beating the Air Force team...
I'm almost positive I've played the game, but it was many years ago. And if there was a PSX version, I'm absolutely
positive I played the demo (from PSM) on the PS 2 I bought at launch.
That said, this is about "depth," and I'd find it hard to believe that anyh other volleyball game required the use of pushing more than 3 buttons, let alone having more "depth" than DOAX 2 which includes an entire Jet Ski Racing engine as a mini game.
Now I'm confused. You say it's "one of the best volleyball games made," but then say it was mostly about "dress-up."
Basically I don't have a large interest for volleyball games. The actual volleyball of the game is about as good as I've ever played though.
I'd buy Table Tennis (which is getting great reviews) before I'd buy a volleyball game that is strictly volleyball; however, DOAX 2 isn't strictly volleyball. Just from the videos we can determine there are water slide, jet ski racing, casino, and pool mini games.
Which is like saying "PGR 2 is a great Robotron homage" just because it has Geometry Wars.
Well if I preferred arcade shooters over racing games that wouldn't be such a far fetched comment.
PantyShot Sim: The Game, remember?
No, I don't.
I have no interest in the game, because, as I said, it's not about volleyball.
DOAX 2 IS first and foremost about volleyball. Maybe they'll tweak the gameplay to your liking. Again, the mechanics were a little "clunky," as you mentioned above, but when you say the game lacks "depth" I need to know what it is you are comparing it to, and what you know about the game.
It's like telling someone allergic to shellfish, "Yeah, but this shrimp tastes awesome!"
No. This isn't about whether the game is "awesome" or not. You nor I can make this judgement since the game hasn't been released. You said the game is lacking "depth," and voted it off. You can make a projection that this game may suck based on the first one, but again you're saying it lacks depth, and I'd like to know how much more deep a volleyball game is suppose to be.
I'm not going to watch some video or read about some game that I have no interest in just because MS craps a videocast down my throat.
Tecmo is making this game, not Microsoft, and they haven't shoved anything down your throat. They haven't done anything any other developer didn't do at E3 bu showing a trailer. Let's just try not to judge games unless we've at least read a bit about them. There isn't a game above that I'll vote off unless I know at least something about it.
