    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.

    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.

    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.

  1. While Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 doesn’t try to make any drastic changes, it’s still a worthy entry in the series.
  2. 85
    Hot Shots: Open Tee 2 feels like well-worn territory at times, but it's a ton of fun and a ton of content that comes with a miniscule $29.99 price tag. Pick it up.
  3. 80
    Ultimately, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is still going to appeal to people who like golf games.
