    I expected The Golf Club 2 to be better than the first in every way given the new career setup and golf societies, but I was surprised the addition of the swing tempo gameplay is what gives this title a lasting structure. This, combined with the course creator, make the game indispensable for any golf fan. You'll be seeing those missed putts in your dreams and savoring every chip-in birdie.

    The Golf Club 2 combines a good golf simulation game with the social interaction of an actual clubhouse through the online societies with an engrossing career mode.

    The Golf Club 2 will resonate better with experienced and patient gamers due to its difficulty, but those who stick with the game will almost certainly feel rewarded for doing so.

    The Golf Club 2 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, providing an unrivaled golf simulation that still lacks surrounding content to keep it relevant for months to come. The new career mode leaves a lot to be desired, but few sports games can compete with how solid the on-course gameplay is within The Golf Club 2. Societies is also a welcome addition that golf-loving friends will really appreciate. The Golf Club 2 is still a ton of fun to play, but it’s clear that HB Studios needs to revamp some of the side activities heading into The Golf Club 3.

    A decent sequel that improves upon its predecessor in virtually every department, The Golf Club 2 strikes a good drive. But while the improvements to the simulation and course editor are appreciated, there’s still work that needs to be done to the unifying Societies system, which represents a clever idea that’s far too convoluted for its own good right now. A third stroke should see this series realise its very real potential – but in fairness, this entry is in regulation and well worth buying if you’re a fan of the sport.

    TGC2 represents my introduction to this series, as I did not play the original entry. Quite honestly I found this advantageous while writing this review, because I didn’t have any preconceived notions about the series going in. While this created some challenges for my initial onboarding into the game, I feel like it allows me perspective to judge the games merits objectively, without chalking weaknesses up to “well it’s better than the last one”. In general I feel like this is a solid budget title with a fantastic course creator and a lot of options, but it’s hard to recommend it to less hardcore fans of the sport.

    The Golf Club 2 is a wonderful golf simulation marred by an unispired online mode and some really annoying technical issues.

The huge difference being, you actually feel the impact of a shot. after reading reviews about the presentation, i expected the graphics to be terrible. look, they aren't next gen level, but they are passable. the main thing in a golf game for a golfer is a great swing system and this game delivers. brilliant.

    This just might be the best sports simulator I have played, any category. Endless replayability through user created content and options forThis just might be the best sports simulator I have played, any category. Endless replayability through user created content and options for your look, clothes and golf bag. A good though somewhat limited solo career mode as well as online societies are a blast. The game urges you to play different courses in different manners to earn more ingame money through various course challenges. Then to top it off there is another game in the game. A course creator that allows you to create your own golf course, with little or endless detail. Expand

    Great golf game with superb mechanics and ball physics . The graphics although not outstanding are decent enough . As others have said fewGreat golf game with superb mechanics and ball physics . The graphics although not outstanding are decent enough . As others have said few server issues over the first two days of release but sorted now . The society aspect of the game is a superb idea and adds alot to the game as does the course builder. Talking of the course builder there are loads of community made courses already all for free so you have an endless supply of courses to play which is important and adds to the longevity of the game .

I sat a few days back and thought I'll purchase number 2 because surely after all this time they have fixed the problems from the first game but how wrong I was.

    Positives - Lots of courses , Career Mode included in retail release , more customisation.

    Negatives - Ok so we'll start with the old problems , low FPS .... not sure what it's running at but like the first game it feels horribly optimised and runs at a very poor framerate on ps4 that's obvious to the eye. Then we have the good old stiff , laggy backswing.... unbelievably this Is exactly the same as the first game , there is nothing different the backswing still feels stiff and laggy which results in numerous shots spewing left or right due to the game simply not being accurate in the stick department. Now I am not showing how they could simply overlook this as It has been mentioned numerous times In the past but it looks like this game was simply copy and pasted in massive chunks from the first game and little tiny things added on to it. This is not a new game from scratch in any way at all and It feels like being robbed in many ways so I'll find it hard to trust HB Studios after this. To end things there is the problem of the worst shadows in a game , no idea why the shadows are as bad as they are but they are truly horrible. Try putting with shadows on the green it's truly a shambles. I honestly cant recommend this game In any way and I am a golf lover and have played every golf game released. Stay away from this until the developers listen to people. Thanks

    Once again a developer has released a broken, mess of a game which they are now, 2 days later still working to fix. You can only play 3-4Once again a developer has released a broken, mess of a game which they are now, 2 days later still working to fix. You can only play 3-4 holes before being disconnected, there are ridiculously long loading screens when navigating the menu and during peak times you can't connect to play at all. This wouldn't be such a big issue if the offline offerings weren't so slim. You can't play any single player career unless you're online, so yeah. During the very few times you can play the actual golf there are numerous technical issues. Screen tearing, stuttering, delayed control inputs, it's just broken.

    Any good will or faith that this studio developed from the first game is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Do not support this practice of companies releasing broken games and fixing them after the fact. This is an unplayable mess.
