  1. If you have only a passing interest in golf you might want to pass on this one but if you can't get enough of this popular pastime then you'll definitely want to join the club.
  2. Hands-down, the Gametrak system provides the most realistic home experience of the sport, even if the game itself isn't revolutionary.
  3. Once you get past the self-consciousness of waving your arms around with a midget-sized club, you quickly realize how much fun the game is. [May 2006, p.81]
  4. While the Gametrak is a techno marvel, it's the video game portion that still needs work.
  5. The putting mechanics aren't up to par and the game isn't going to blow anyone away in terms of presentation, but if you're a golf fan that would rather swing a club, even a mini one at that, as opposed to pushing a few buttons or moving an analog stick around, you very well might want to consider taking a hack at Real World Golf.
  6. It's truly everybody's game - if you can swing a stick, you can play this (even if you're a lefty). It's perfect for parties, or for players willing to trade next-gen graphics and fancy options for the chance to swing a club instead of button mashing.
  7. Once you get past the novelty, there's nothing to keep you playing Real World Golf.
