Summary: For me, this was a compulsive buy driven by a recent rash of nostalgia. I played Hot Shots Golf 3 back in 2005 and remember enjoying it a lot. Today, I can still say that it is a great game so long as you play it muted. I forgot how repetative the character one liners were.
Summary: This is my first Hot Shots Golf title. The graphics are gorgeous. The expressions on the golf players and the caddys are sometimes hilarious. The same thing can be said about what the caddys say to your player. Must-have if you like golf games without Tiger Woods marring up the screen.
Summary: I have been playing golf games since the original Atari and have found there are usually two types; the serious ones like Tiger Woods and the whacky amusing ones like Hot Shots 3. Personally, I like Hot Shots better. The graphics are wonderful. The characters are solid and entertaining and the caddies are passable enough. However, it's the gameplay that keeps you coming back for more.
Summary: When I looked at the box of Hot Shots Golf 3, I immediately thought "Kid's Game." With goofy golfers who wear funny clothes and say stupid things, I thought "no way... Show me a real game like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City." Then off to the left was a Playstation 2 demo terminal, as luck would have it. Hot Shots Golf 3 was the game being demoed. I walked over, and gave it a shot.
Summary: Wonderful game where the difficulty is pretty consistent with your progress although it's frustrating with some golfers that have a natural curve and you don't know how to compensate for it. Some of the character comments during versus mode are a little weird but sometimes downright annoying and repetitive. The second wave of characters is tougher and seem to get lucky breaks even more often than their counterparts.
