Hot Shots Golf Fore!

The Gamers Temple
14 August 2005
  • Excerpt: Hot Shots Golf Fore! (HSGF) is Sony’s latest entry in the “cute” golf game genre. If you’re looking for a serious golf sim, then you’d better look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a more accessible golf game with a fanciful twist that still manages to realistically capture the physics of golf, then HSGF is definitely worth a look.

  • 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.

  • 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!

Playstation Illustrated
3 February 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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: If you've played any Hot Shots game before now, you know exactly what you're going to find in Fore. The same swing mechanic, which involves one button press to start, another to select power, and another to determine accuracy is present, though there is now a simplified two-button system for novices. You can put a slice or a fade on the ball by pressing left or right, and you can also put back-spin on the ball by pressing down before hitting the ball.

  • Excerpt: Golf enthusiasts have it easy. They have it easy because, when it comes to videogame renditions of the typically laid back game, they really can't go wrong. For diehard PGA nuts, the has been the go-to series as a wildly enjoyable, if not a bit off-the-wall, remedy for the casual players. We were rocked by the robustness and pure polish of , the game has hopped onto the online bandwagon yet retaining the same satisfying offline experience.
