  • Summary: Swing Away Golf is a game whose features and execution could barely be explained by a book, let alone by a review.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 11 out of 15
  2. Negative: 1 out of 15
  1. It has to be the best golf game on the market today.
  2. If you love golf, you'll love this game, which is based on the "Hot Shots" engine. The course redraw is fairly quick, the courses are well-developed, and the characters are hyper-realistic.
  3. A fun, detailed and graphically lovely golf game that bodes well for future trips to the links on the PlayStation2.
  4. 80
    Although you have great control over the type of swing, the swing meter takes some getting used to, and its speed often seems arbitrary.
  5. The game is very long. Playing through all 18 holes, the action does drag somewhat and you will have to put aside at least an hour to battle through the one player challenge.
  6. It's got a great golf engine, loads of options, replay value, and offers a serious challenge without taking itself too seriously.
  7. A mess of half-arsed ideas, evil loading times, and a pace that's shockingly sedate.
