    With 50-player tournaments, oodles of character-customizing doodads, and the promise of downloadable content, this game should have extra long legs. [May 2008, p.84]
  2. There are worse ways to spend a lazy Sunday morning.
  3. The gameplay is fun, the animations are great and there’s a lot to do both online and off. However, this is really HSG5, and the omissions from previous HSG games leave the package feeling somewhat hollow.

    It retains what fans love about the series and refuses to make any drastic changes. Long time fans will be absolutely ecstatic at this news, but for those of you who never got the appeal of Hot Shots in the first place, you certainly won't find it here.

    One of the most addicting games ever. This is my first time playing HSG since the original came out many moons ago. I have been a long timeOne of the most addicting games ever. This is my first time playing HSG since the original came out many moons ago. I have been a long time Tiger Woods' gamer, but I was really disappointed in TW08 for the PS3. So I saw that HSG was coming out and of course saw that it got good review, so I bought it. I have already got my moneys worth. And I am only a level 9 so far! The single player missions are generally short and quick, which is good and the online mode is great as well. This is the best sports game on the PS3 (Well, besides NHL08) Buy this game and meet me online!!! Full Review »

Although simple in its play, its complex design and attention to detail holds the advanced gamer though hours of play. The online play is fast,fun, and with out the annoying trash talk in your ear. The only setback is the lack of players and courses, witch i'm sure will be remedied with downloadable add on's (PS3 web site). Full Review »

    This is a game that I at first wasn't too sure I was going to enjoy, boy was I wrong. It is simple in its design, pick a golfer soul This is a game that I at first wasn't too sure I was going to enjoy, boy was I wrong. It is simple in its design, pick a golfer soul mate and play til the cows come home, but it quickly becomes addicting. If you are not a big golf fan, or even a big sports fan, this game is still a absolute great buy for its perfect gameplay, beautiful graphics, addicting item and rank builder, and being the only golf game I have ever enjoyed. To put it simple, this game is close to perfection for the genre, while it may not be a game you might play alot as far as golf goes, Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds still gets my vote as a must buy on the ps3. This just makes one more great EXCLUSIVE game on sony's belt of greatness. Full Review »
