  1. Golf lends itself well to online play, and OT2 doesn't disappoint, especially as a portable title.
  2. If you enjoyed the original and are wondering if this is a worthy successor my answer would be absolutely there is plenty of new content, and the online play is quite the treat.
  3. Everybody’s Golf 2 is just one of those games that you can’t put down, its addictive fun and well worth anyone’s cash.
  4. Open Tee was and is a fantastic game, and it’s hard to complain about being able to tee off online with that very same feel.
  5. It's a quick loader, too, with minimum turnaround between holes.
  6. When looking at Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2, and taking the sum of all its parts, this series still remains as one of the easiest to pick up and play golf games that any one can take part in on the PSP.

    I'd actually prefer a minigolf version of this series on the handheld systems. Maybe that would get me worked up about a relaxing round of Hot Shots again.

    Great graphics, lovable characters, good feeling of the physics, many things to unlock and collect. It's easy to play and yet deep and challenging. Perfect for the PSP. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Fun to play and tough to master indeed! This is the kind of game that keeps you hooked for 8 hours long sessions, and you still want more. Doesn't take itself very seriously, but still offers solid game-play for amateurs to pros alike, being the opposite of the wanna-be-king Tiger Woods series, which seem rather boring compared with the fun of Hot Shots Golf series.
    More so, it sort of "contains" the first game, since all it's characters can be unlocked here.
    The only downside i found is that leveling up to the top rank is done much too soon, such as when you're there you still might have unlocked characters (without taking into account those from the first game, which have to be found hidden around the golf courses). But since you'd keep playing the game a lot even after getting everything it has to offer, this is not that much of an issue.

    This game has everything the first game had, times two. Not many other psp titles out there with this much replay value, and game content. I feel that some of the professional reviewers were on autopilot when they reviewed this game, I mean, what were they expecting from a sequel to an already outstanding game. Expand
