  1. Its incredible similarity to previous Hot Shots Golf games may disappoint those looking for something fresh and new...[but] anyone looking for a consistently goofy, lighthearted golf game, will surely be pleased.

    This game is fun for a bit until you notice the glaring problems. Without any wind, it would say I am hitting 232 and I would hit full powerThis game is fun for a bit until you notice the glaring problems. Without any wind, it would say I am hitting 232 and I would hit full power and almost perfectly on and it would only go 209 yards and into the water below. The game does a terrible job [predicting how far your shot will go, in a game where feet matter. There is no excuse and no other reason why that should happen. Also even on the beginner courses the computer gets pars and birdies every time making it almost impossible to keep up. They should make the game more accessible and not make waste your time on 18 holes against perfect players starting out. Also even if you are just a tad off on the hit with the accuracy button it will go way short (doesn't even make sense with accuracy) or way off to the side. They can't expect you to be perfect and should penalize you as much for barely any error. Full Review »

    This is a great golf game that does not bog you down with meters and trying to decide exactly how to hit each stroke. The gameplay is smooth This is a great golf game that does not bog you down with meters and trying to decide exactly how to hit each stroke. The gameplay is smooth and kept light with a multi-player mode that lets you trade compliments and insults, as well as control (somewhat) the crowd reactions. Full Review »
