Imagine for a second that you're at a puppet show, with stringed marionettes bouncing loosely around the stage. Now imagine those puppets trying to play volleyball, and you start to get a sense of what you're in store for with Volleyball Arena. The game's controls, while simple, are annoyingly sloppy. It's bad enough that your character can't seem to move beyond a jaunty skip forward and back on the court, but there's little in the way of accuracy when you actually hit the ball. In fact, the game seems to confuse volleyball for soccer, as you're just as likely to bounce the ball over the net off your head as much as with your hands. It makes most of the thirty second matches feel more like Pong, but with better graphics and less excitement.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
