If this turns out decent I will definitely be buying this. I love sports games and it's great to have a new niche sports game to check out. I love Olympic level volleyball. I'm curious if this game will have accurate and/or editable rosters.*

I'll wait and see what is said about the game after release but I'm at least curious at the moment.*

looks good, grew up playing indoor volleyball amongst other sports, so I'll probably buy - my only reservation would be on mechanics and controls, like I would hate there to be an aiming recticle for example - otherwise it looks good in the trailers.

Looks like a good game! I think we needed some new sports games in the market, and the price looks just right too.

This game is out on Xbox One as of tonight. I've seen one person on Twitter post some gameplay and it's just as buggy as Tennis World Tour. Damn, I was hoping this would be good. Not surprised though, as TWT and this both are with BigBen.

We definitely need new sport games out. I gave Don Bradman Cricket a shot and will for sure give this one a try, specially after playing volleyball myself.

Watched a stream earlier and noticed a few things.

The Good:
-Finally a volleyball game.
-Animation (motion capture) of attacks/serving are done nicely.
-Strategy on offense is pretty good as well - some options - could get better.

Areas of improvement - From watching a stream...
-Contact with the ball seems off - ball looks to be away from hitter, etc.
-Setting needs an overhaul - Too many times the setter is passing the ball - or diving while at the net - rarely you see that during a game.
-Blocking is off. From the movement of blockers, to too much triple blocking.
-Transition is terrible. Too many players get stuck at the net without moving once the ball is played by the defense. This leads to weird animations of players jumping from a standing position.

If they could...
-Overhaul blocking and defensive movement - and make it more strategic.
-Options for strategy on speed of offense - fast sets to high sets. If you see international volleyball - some teams play fast, others high and slow. This would be huge as it would then emphasize more on playing defense and blocking.

I think this has a ton of potential with some patches. They are doing a decent job replicating the game already just need to polish up a few of the animations and areas.
