  • Summary: Shot-Online is not just an online sports game either, but it is a highly accurate simulation and a deep role-playing experience. It is the RPG quality that makes Shot-Online the unique game it is, especially with the community interaction and the enhancement and leveling of your character.Shot-Online is not just an online sports game either, but it is a highly accurate simulation and a deep role-playing experience. It is the RPG quality that makes Shot-Online the unique game it is, especially with the community interaction and the enhancement and leveling of your character. Speaking of community and role-playing, Shot-Online offers both realistic and rare items drawn from the celebrated history of golf. Practicing every day, competing against players with different skills, allows the gamer to advance their characters abilities. Quests and item exchanging and more add to the community feel. A proprietary physics engine was used in Shot-Online to accurately recreate the ball and course dynamics. In other words, the ball will behave as it should over the geography of the course. Characters also benefit from accuracy through technology. Motion captured golf swings from a PGA golfer were used to match the most spot-on feel of a real golf swing, putting, chip shot, and other golfing actions. As a gallery, watching a game played on Shot-Online is like seeing a professional golf sportscast on television, with the overall presentation, the numerous camera angles and the gallery mode. Whether you're watching or playing, Shot-Online golf is designed to both play and look as close to reality as possible. [OnNet] Expand

    In short, Shot-Online isn't just a good game, it is a game that is good for the industry.
  2. The unique melding of realistic golf simulation with MMORPG-style character progression, online community interaction, micro-payment economics and periodic tournaments and special events amounts to one of the most fun and rewarding videogame sports experiences I have played in a good while.
  3. Shot-Online is a good golf game that isn’t the traditional PGA style “step into the shoes of a pro” but instead gives players a way to act out how golf is in the real world – filled with people who want to play against you.
  4. With a quality golf backbone to give purpose to the MMO portions, Shot Online's formula has the potential to be a hole in one, but this implementation turns it into more of a double bogey.
  5. 51
    As soon as leveling becomes an extended, lengthy process, the blandness of Shot-Online comes screaming to the surface.
  6. So, basically, you have a pretty average, simple golf game, with a world online that's enjoyable enough to play through with fellow golfers.
  7. 35
    Shot Online's execution is just poor.
