Everybody's Golf World Tour Review
5 September 2008
Excerpt: Before Tiger Woods came along, golf was very different, and so were golf games. They didn't need to have every course on the PGA Tour and all the top names in order to be fun, and Everybody's Golf: World Tour on the PS3 certainly harks back to the good old days. With some wonderfully characteristic visuals and quirky presentation gamers tired of the serious golf offered by Tiger might find a lot to enjoy.
Excerpt: Everybody's Golf World Tour (Hot Shots Golf 5) is the latest edition to the series that is now solely based on the PlayStation 3 with high definition graphics and improved gameplay. For those that are unfamiliar with the series, Everybody's Golf World Tour is a golf game that does not take itself seriously and features anime style characters with their large heads and eye.
Excerpt: Being a rabid fanboy of [i]Dr. Mario[/i] gives me a slight bias, but having a portable version of this fantastic game is well worth the $20. [i]Tetris[/i] and [i]Dr. Mario[/i] fans will undoubtedly enjoy this one for a long time.
Summary: Golf. It's a flippin' hard game! To become a decent golfer you need an all-round game; a good solid swing, sweet ball contact, nifty approach shots and skill-full putting. So it's no surprise really that most people stick to just playing it on a console. But there's not really much choice as you've either got EA Sports Tiger Wood Franchise, or...erm...well that's it - until now!
Pros: Addictive, Fun gameplay, Superb characters and detailed courses, Online play is great!
Cons: Not enough courses to play, Character customisation is limited offline, Annoying, unvaried dialogue
Summary: Living in modern society, it seems almost impossible to remember a world without Angry Birds in it. Those little guys have infiltrated so many aspects of modern tech culture that almost everyone you speak to (gamer or otherwise) has played one of these games on one platform or another.
Pros: Great upgraded Visuals, Great Control system, Definitive Angry Birds Experience
Cons: Structure not suited to home consoles, Way too expensive, Terrible Kinect controls
Conclusion: Over all Everybody’s Golf is a great alternative to Tiger Woods. Easy to pick up and play, looks and plays great. It’s just a shame there isn’t more choice out of the box and voice chat online.
Pros: Great looks, Easy to get into and always fun
Cons: No online voice chat, Only one course and a couple of characters to choose from at the start
Excerpt: I’ve never been interested in the sport known as golf. Sitting there watching a guy get his biggest wood out and then smacking a ball many yards, only then to set off walking towards it, taking his time, then smacking it again, hoping to get it into a hole in the ground. The sport just isn’t appealing enough for me. Golf games on the other hand do hit me with curiosity. They seem to make the sport more attractive than it actually is.
Excerpt: If you are looking for a good, solid arcade golf game that is entertaining and very much in the 'old school' style of play then this is the one for you. The fun anime-type characters bely a game that packs some seriously good features.
Pros: Amusing characters and some pretty graphics make for an entertaining game of golf, and the online play is an added bonus.
Cons: With only six courses, the title 'World Tour' is a bit of a misnomer.
