Summary: To be perfectly honest, I haven't played this game too much yet, but judging from other peoples reviews, it sounds like it will be fun when I really get into it. I'm just giving a review because Amazon is asking for one and I want to get it over with.
Summary: i haven't touched the hot shots series since i bought the first ever version for PS1. after acquiring a ps2, i decided to come back to the series. it's pretty much what i remembered, and is a great time to play. there are a few things that stick out in my mind that i didn't care for: the mini golf is not as good as i remember.
Summary: I'm a big fan of Outlaw Golf (but that is for the Xbox). This game stands up there, but gets pretty technical and isn't a "pick up and play" game for a quick 9 with a group of friends...you have to concentrate quite a bit.
Summary: This is pretty fun. The character graphics are amusing and the courses are pretty and well done. It's got some flaws that I feel will work out with a LOT of practice which is why I wish you could give half stars here on Amazon. It's not a four star game but it's also not a three star game. Some comments on game features: Ignore the "Nice Shot" graphic that pops up often. It means nothing and only applies to the strike ON the ball.
Summary: First, let me tell you up front that I LOVED HSG3. I especially loved the par 3-courses and I did master the game. That being said, HSG Fore is a LOT harder than HSG3! Sure, the graphics are cleaned up, and mini-golf is added. But somehow, it seems a bit more difficult and a slight bit less fun. Not a huge degree, but I can definately say that they stressed more realism in this version.
