  • Excerpt: Hot Shots Golf Fore! could easily be called Hot Shots Golf More! Clap Hanz seems happy with the core gameplay they have created and I, for one, won't argue. In fact, they have implemented a new system that makes "Everybody's Golf" (its Japanese name) even more accessible. Instead of the normal three-button click system of hitting the ball, you can use a two-click system. While this sacrifices power, it makes it even easier for "Everybody" to compete.

  • Summary: SCEA hits the links once again with Hot Shots Golf Fore! on the PS2. This edition doesn't change most of the elements that made the previous titles so appealing. This includes the usual cast of wacky characters playing on a larger number of courses in multiple gameplay modes including the popular mini-golf mode. While the graphics and character designs are humorous, the golf physics and strategy are surprisingly authentic.

Hot Shots Golf Fore

Game Boyz

  • Excerpt: Da Introduction Let me begin by saying this possibly one of better laid out instruction manuals I've seen since I purchased my PS2. Not that I actually -needed- the instruction manual, that is. I came in cold to this game, and thought this would be an excellent opportunity to see if I could get a grip on the mechanics, without any prior Hot Shots experience.

Hot Shots Golf Fore – Review

GameCritics.com
13 March 2005
  • Excerpt: One of the ever-evolving joys of gaming has been that playing videogames allows players an opportunity to do things they'd never do in real life. Gamers can be space heroes, Navy SEALS, ancient warriors, or in my case, great golfers. Sure, I can hear it now—"Mike, you could just go out to one of the millions of golf courses in America and actually play the game"—and while this is true, it's oh so much easier to just sit on my couch with a game like Tiger Woods PGA Tour .

Hot Shots Golf Fore!

Playstation Illustrated
22 January 2005
  • Excerpt: Sony's Hot Shots Golf series has always provided an interesting and fun twist on the golf genre. While it still retains many of the core aspects and mechanics of golf, it also throws in colorful characters and a fun atmosphere. Hot Shots Golf Fore! , the fourth game in the series, continues the trends set in the original games, but does it a little too well. Visually, Hot Shots Golf Fore! looks good, but isn't much of a step above the last game in the series.

Hot Shots Golf Fore!

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: The game features a very simple shot mechanic. You tap the button to get the slider moving, tap it again to gauge your distance and then time your final tap to determine the direction. (Will the ball draw left, right or go straight down the center?) You can also choose the impact point on the ball during the swing, but you only have four simple choices: top, bottom, left and right.

  • Excerpt: Back in 1998, video game golfing was given a much need shot in the arm when gamers witnessed a revolutionary title called "Hot Shots Golf" for the PlayStation. It proved that golf games didn't need to have realistic courses or golfers, and it showed them that golf need not be a serious sport to be a fun game.

  • Excerpt: If you're one to play golf more for the off road cart driving and guilt-free consumption of adult beverages in a park than the pomp and plaid pant gentlemanliness of it all, check out Hot Shots Golf Fore.
