    It's really difficult to hate on much of anything in Everybody's Golf for the PS4. It's an addictive, enjoyable golfing experience "for everyone" with plenty of replay factor and the added hook of daily challenges which should funnel players into the online modes. We're certain that veteran Hot Shots Golf players know what they are getting into with Everybody's Golf and hopefully potential newcomers will be enticed by the very reasonable $39.99 price tag.

    Everbody's Golf does its title justice and delivers a near perfect virtual golf experience accessible to everyone looking to shoot some holes.

    The series returns with a great game, that doesn't evolve the formula much, but tweaks it to keep it fresh. It's a shame that it comes out in such a busy period, since many people may overlook it blinded by the other big names.

    Changes are plentiful, but don't disrupt the formula of what makes this series so great. Come for the characters, stay for the simple-but-demanding golfing. [Nov 2017, p.79]

    The latest iteration of Everybody’s Golf represents an evolution for the classic PlayStation golf franchise. The new character progression system is one of the most welcomed features on top of the robust online modes and the freedom it offers on the golf course. If you can look beyond the grinding, you can enjoy a very pleasant virtual golf experience.

    I do love this series and I certainly didn’t have a bad time playing it, but this entry is lacking in the pizzazz that the earlier entries had. The Golf Island overworld adds nothing to the experience, and the amount of grinding to unlock new things is downright ridiculous. That said, the core golfing is still highly enjoyable, it’s nicely priced nicely at $40, and frankly, there’s no competition on the market. As such, Everybody’s Golf is everybody’s golf by default — newcomers will find it solid, but longtime fans like me might wish for days gone by.

You don't even have to be a golf fan to enjoy this game and holy cow this game has 1 of the best character creation options I ever seen . you will see so many different looking players that have their own original look ...Its insane . Its neat just seeing all the different creations out there. This is a must buy for everyone ..so much fun! Expand

    Haven't had the time to play it after buying it a month ago but once I started, I couldn't let go of the controller the way I couldn't stopHaven't had the time to play it after buying it a month ago but once I started, I couldn't let go of the controller the way I couldn't stop playing Minna No Golf on the PSP a decade ago. It's just a completely addictive game where you won't mind grinding out your character's level especially once getting the timing of the driver swing right. The short game and putting does take a bit of experience to control, but after getting the hang of that, it's very easy to get under par in 9 holes so it's just a matter of unlocking every character, course, and item.

It is true to the fun, challenging, satisfying nature of Hot Shots Golf games but now it has a huge scope and way more depth. I can't say enough about this game. It's obviously not a golf simulation but for pure fun in gaming you can't do better than this. Expand

    Graphics : really poor for this generation. As others mentioned, looks like 2 generations ago.
    Gameplay : addictive old school 3 button click and this series does it best.
    Gameflow : big problem. You have to really play a long long time just to get to the next level and next course. It gets old to keep playing the same courses over and over again. This could have been done better. But the vs challenges are pretty fun. Just hoped they would come more often instead of playing the same course 3-4 times until you get a vs challenge.
    Online : very diverse, open roaming. You get limited if you don't have the other golf courses unlocked.

    Overall good game. It could have been better.

    Everybodys Golf
    Way too Grindy
    Everybodys golf is a very casual and beginner friendly golf game, you start by creating your character with one of easily the best character creators ever in a game, where youre given just the right amount of freedom to make an avatar version of yourself…
    And youre off to climb the ranks in the golf world…
    The game does a really great job of spoon feeding you mechanics, youll eventually be able to do things like power shots or increase and decrease the power of your stroke, but these things are unlocked after beating bosses or finding items around your home are which is a hub area where you can run around getting hints, buying outfits from characters,challenging bosses and entering tournaments
    the gameplay here is fairly simple, you tap to t off, choose the direction and power and then you try your hardest to land on the perfect zone to get the best out of your swing…
    and you have different clubs that will hit different distances and using them will increase their stats, giving ttem more range or control for example…
    the less swings you take to get in the hole while avoiding as many hazards as poosible, the more points youll get…
    once youre close to the hole you can see slopes with a grid, youll see wind that does effect your ball, but you can also use a camera to help you align your shot better which is unlocked by answering trivia questions…
    its genuinely satisfying to line up a shot and watch as things play out just as you invisioned
    you can play 9 holes and sometimes even 18 in the tournaments…
    and each round effects your total score at the end..
    and by winning youll receive xp which goes towards an opponent to challenge…
    each rank has 3 opponents for you to defeat, there are one on one matches and a majority of them are based on you trying to win 3 holes in a row to end the match and take place on a variety of match types…
    Which adds life to this game…
    There are things like mega cups which take a bit more skill than tornado cups for example which has a tornado in the hole that will suck in anything that comes near it, making it really easy to get ridiculous shots in
    All of this was great.. I was having a great deal of fun with this game…
    But unfortunately… this game only has 5 courses with more to be released as dlc… and they are all locked behind a ridiculous grind
    youre give the first course at the start of course…
    But it takes 6 and a half hours to unlock the 2nd course….
    Meaning youre going to have to play the first one over and over and over for 9 and 18 holes for the length of a first person shooters single player campaign.. and even after I unlocked the new course they were still giving me the first one to play in tournaments like I haven’t had enough of it yet… unlocking the 3rd course takes 15 hours….
    this is completely unacceptable…. Even half of that time is unacceptable…
    Made worse by the fact that you can only play on courses you’ve unlocked in single player in any of the other modes.. including online….
    There is an online mode where you can freely roam the courses you unlock and try to get the best score on its holes.. and theres a terf war mode where its 2 teams running around trying to get a birdie or higher on a hole to take control of that hole for their team…
    But because of the ridiculous grind required to unlock different courses…
    The higher courses will surely be ghost towns forever as only the dedicated will make it to course 2 let alone 3 4 and 5…
    I made it to the 2nd course and I just couldn’t take the grind anymore…
    Everybodys golf is a really great golf game..
    But its grind hurts the overall package
    I give Everybody’s Golf
    a 7/10

    Three big problems:
    (1) I had hoped that the reset feature would have been improved from Hot Shots -- if you wanted to restart a round on the same course in Hot Shots, you had to wait for the entire course to be reloaded, re-choose your gear, etc., rather than just re-setting you to the first hole in a second or two (how hard could it be ?). Well, in Everybody's, the reset feature is WORSE ! Takes even longer. Unacceptable.
    (2) They made a big thing in Hot Shots about the Advanced Shot System, and it WAS far superior to the 'meter' shot method. Literally played for years with Advance Shots. But, for those who preferred the 'meter', that was available, too. Not so with Everybody's -- you take the 'meter' or go suck an egg. The 'meter' stinks. Unacceptable.
    (3) I'm tired of playing 'blind' trying to figure out what all the junk on the screen means -- you got no instruction book ! OK in theory, but the game doesn't tell you jack about all the features, icons, gauges, etc. So, you just have to wade in, and hope to get explanations as you go along. Don't know what features can or will be 'unlocked', what you will or won't be able to do at some point... Unacceptable.

    I am highly disappointed, especially considering all the time it took to develop and release the game. i give it thumbs down.
