Summary: I am not a massive fan of golf, but after trying this game out, I could honestly say that it is quite good fun. This game in particular, has easy to use controls, very smooth and detailed graphics, and the sound is pretty good too. I would probably reccommend this game to people who like any sports, not just golf. The game seems to be a lot more three dimensional than other golf games, as the camera glides around the courses with ease.
Summary: I got this game free thanks to subscribing to Match of the Day magazine and all I can say is that I'm glad I didn't actually pay for the game. It is shocking. The graphics are rubbish, and it is impossible to play. I am great at other golf games but this one was impossible. While having several courses to choose from, they are just names and are not actual holes from the real life courses.

There is a good selection of golfers to choose from, although I didn’t see the point in the choice of sports wear. Once you have mastered the swing meter the game becomes quite challenging, and from there ...
Pros: Not having someone waiting for you to finishing your hole
Summary: I picked up a copy of this and Jack Nicklaus 5 at a local computer show for just £1.00, so i was not expecting much from them. With Jack Nicklaus, i had my fears confirmed as it was cumbersome and awkward to play, but not so with actua golf 2. The install was smooth and fast and on loading you are presented with a very slick front end, where all of your options are laid out in clear form.
Excerpt: "I find Actua Golf 2 to be very difficult when using the Actua swing mode, you really do need to practice a lot with that method of swing, saying that though using the 3 click method is very easy to learn although very demanding to get right every time, there is certainly a skill factor needed. The games playability is excellent and you will find yourself playing for hours, the graphics also are excellent, with shimmering water etc, the most annoying ...
Summary: That's right! My grandad played on this game and he didn't do too badly either! This game is enjoyable and easy to get to grips with. Although sometimes frustrating, the excellent and often humerous commentary, allows you to laugh your hilariously poor strokes away. With a wide range of golfers to choose from and the option to create your own, this game is fun and is not just for fans of golf.
