Summary: Parents need to know that Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational is the latest entry in the highly successful Hot Shots Golf series, which dates back to the days of the original PlayStation console. Players work their way up through various golf courses, competing to become the best player in the virtual world. To do this, they will need to upgrade their golf clubs and golf balls by collecting points, and unlocking new, more powerful avatars along the way.
Conclusion: Further proving that it's unnecessary to fix something that never broke, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational keeps true to its series roots while offering a ton of content and good times. A treat for anyone who enjoys golf or fun.
Excerpt: Hot Shots Golf has always pulled off one thing off: even if you absolutely hate or can't play golf in real life, the series can still pull you in, making the non-golfer somehow enjoy golf. Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational is the newest installment of the series and has the same potent magic as its predecessors. Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational is set up like past hot shot games (and many golfing games before it).
Excerpt: Innovation? Bah! Evolution? Who needs it? Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational arrives alongside the launch of the Vita, and aside from a few cursory touch features, it's the same basic experience as its many predecessors. Even with the lack of change, the pastoral greens of World Invitational can suck away hours of your life before you realize it.

Excerpt: Golf games -- they can go one of two ways. Either they can be a super-serious simulation loaded with features, but not forgetting about the aspect of having fun; or they can be a laid-back arcade style affair, like Mario Golf or something that uses a motion controller, to get the whole family into it.
Excerpt: Desde que nacieron los videojuegos han existido títulos de deportes, y en todas las generaciones de consolas hemos visto algunos de golf, lo que resulta extraño, pues a diferencia de otros deportes, es practicado por muy pocas personas, incluso en países del Primer Mundo.
Pros: Buen diseño de niveles. Gráficos de calidad. Buen manejo de la física.
Cons: Menús poco prácticos. Personalización innecesariamente compleja.
