Excerpt: It might sound a bit obvious, but Everybody's Golf really is for everybody. A cute art style and selection of fictional courses presents this Vita launch title as a casual game of golf, yet the swing mechanics and physics lend themselves well to more experienced players. While there's nothing here that makes this edition of the long-running series stand out above its previous entries, the snappy gameplay, decent multiplayer options and plenty of unlockables make this a...
Summary: This is yet another exemplary edition of the greatest golf game ever made. What do you mean you prefer that disgraced womaniser's game? Mario Golf will never be as good as Everybody's Golf! The one letdown here, and it's a biggie, is that yet again there is no two-player available on one console. What a jip!
Everybody's Golf Vita review: Fun, but under par on innovation
21 February 2012
Summary: We always thought Everybody's Golf had the most arrogant name in games. There it sat, wrapped in the pompous self-assurance that it's the golf game for everybody. And for its Vita debut, we can confidently say a name change is in order.
Conclusion: Everybody's Golf for PS Vita is what Everybody's Golf has always been - an accessible round of golf in cosy surroundings with sweet yet somehow creepy manga style golfers. That's what it is, with a few minor Vita-exclusive additions. Much like Wipeout and Ridge Racer , Everybody's Golf has made it a tradition to come out at or around the launch of a new Playstation product, and at least in Japan it must be considered a cornerstone of the launch line up.
Pros: + Accessible. + Charming graphics. + Lots to unlock.
Cons: - Two people can't compete on the same PS Vita. - Some annoying music.
Excerpt: Despite slicing into the odd sand-trap, Everybody's Golf still manages to finish under par.
Pros: Accessible, enjoyable, and largely uncomplicated. Vivid and cheery character designs. Challenging course designs. Courses are rendered beautifully. You can make lobby characters and give them little suits and moustaches.
Cons: Multiplayer is a bit simplistic. Some odd interface issues. Two too many problematic anime tropes. Doesn't do anything fresh or new with the franchise or the subgenre.
Excerpt: for PlayStation Vita is an aptly named title. This is an accessible game that anybody can pick up and play, regardless of whether you know your nine iron from your pitching wedge. Clap Hanz's latest entry in its family-friendly series may be somewhat light on new features, but it's every bit as addictive as its forbears.
Conclusion: Zwar konnte ich den Mehrspieler-Modus leider nicht testen, aber wenn das Spielerlebnis nur annährend so gelungen ist, wie im Einzelspieler-Part, dann dürften sich hier nur noch mehr Stunden voller Spielspaß anreihen. Everybody’s Golf ist das perfekte Spiel für zwischendurch, auch wenn man sich an dem einen oder anderen Loch dann doch öfters mal die Zähne ausbeißt oder man sich durch ein besonders kniffliges Loch die gesamte Platz-Statistik ruiniert.
Pros: Großer Umfang, Leichter Einstieg, Viele Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, Individualisierbare Charaktere, die mitleveln, Simples und dennoch unterhaltendes Gameplay, Zahlreiche Dinge zum Freischalten
Cons: Wenige Erklärungen, Wechsel zu neuen Charakteren durch Levelsystem unnötig, Motion Controls sind da, bereichern das Spiel aber kaum, Teilweise frustrierend schwierig
