    I'm really interested in more details on this beach volleyball game from AM2. It looks really cool, but I'm wondering how the controls work -- the camera seems to move around a lot...

    Anyone had hands on experience? I was hoping it would be at that CA Robinson show, but it wasn't.

    Yeah, it was at SVGL for quite awhile before they removed the machine. It's a pretty simplistic game, but... the gals are really yummy. I like the Italian team, in particular.

    I agree on the girls... I liked the brazilians :)

    But how does it work? I've watched the movies and it looks kinda baffling. Does the 180 degree camera rotation swap your controls, or what? And what's with that target on the ground? Do you have to stand on that or something?

    Well... I could understand if you can't be bothered answering all these questions, but if you can I'd appreciate it :)

    Um, it's been awhile since I played. When the ball gets spiked into your court, just move one of the gals into the circle, the closer to the center of the circle, the better. Then press the "dig" button (or whatever it is), then watch for a new circle to appear, get the other girl to that circle, press "set", then finally you'll see a power meter appear, the first girl will jump up to spike, and try to hit the button when the power meter is near 100%, and also you can move the stick left or right to aim where you want the shot to land.

    For some reason the explanation movie never appeared when I was looking for it...

    But to elaborate on FeixaQ's post, the closer your lady is to the center of the circle when you hit the button for a set or bump, the greater the "maximum potential" is on the spike bar, which button you use and the timing may also have something to do with it.

    Haven't figured out how to use the "spike aiming" feature, nor have I been able to successfully block a spike.

    But thats all irrelevant, I play well enough to fulfill my eye candy quota.

    Team Portugal Baby!

    Anyone else find the final level (the team in silver) is just so much harder than the final round?

    ok thanks chaps... just curious... I haven't had a chance to actually play the game, but it looks fun. I gather it's not as deep as Virtua Tennis, then?
