Outlaw Volleyball hit's the PS2 with a blast. There aren't any other volleyball games on the Playstation 2 apart from the early Summer Heat Beach Volleyball which was quite successful. Volleyball has never gone 'outlaw' on the PS2 until now though, and Xbox fans of the game will be very disappointed to hear that it's got even more packed into the game. Read on to find out about the new courts, online play, skimpy outfit's, half-naked characters, and how the game has had a complete makeover to be able to be known as Outlaw Volleyball Remixed.

When setting the ball up for your teammate, you can view where you want to hit it and move it around to set it up better, all in the middle of a rally!

There are several different game modes and they're not really worth rambling about in great depths. If you're interested in finding out more about the mainstream gameplay, check out our Xbox review of Outlaw Volleyball as all the goodies are in there. The only differences with respect to gameplay modes are a couple of 'Remixed' game modes, which are actually just new game modes, known as Baseball and Ping Pong. Baseball mode follows the rules of a Baseball game, only on the Volleyball court. it's really quite ingenious how Hypnotix have put this together.
