  1. Golf lends itself well to online play, and OT2 doesn't disappoint, especially as a portable title.
  2. A technically flawless game with lightning fast load times that allow you to play a round of golf in minutes rather than hours, making this the perfect title for the gamer on the go who needs to play in short spurts.
  3. Highly polished, finely-tuned, practically flawless - and that's just the golf balls. Open Tee 2 delivers the best portable golf game ever exclusively to PSP. Robust multiplayer tops a long list of reasons to pick up this hole-in-one.
  4. Despite a few setbacks and no huge gameplay advancements, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is exactly what a good handheld game should be. It’s good for long sessions at home or short games on the go, but once you start playing, you will not want to stop.
  5. The bottom line is that this is a fantastic value for the measly $30 Sony is asking.
  6. 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.
  7. Anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of playing Everybody's Golf on his PSP yet, hasn’t had any true fun on that particular handheld.

    The more you play, the more techniques become available to help deal with the more challenging courses. The wide variety of unlockables is also a great incentive to keep playing.
  9. If you're interested in golf games on the PSP, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is definitely the game to get.
  10. If you loved the first PSP outing of Hot Shots Golf, then you'll love Open Tee 2.
  11. 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.
  12. Even if you don't like golf, give it a go because it's one of hte most charming and playable experiences on PSP to date. [Aug 2008, p.80]

    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. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link 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.

    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. Full Review »
