Excerpt: Golf is genuinely dull and if we found ourselves in an unfortunate situation, which forced us to watch this dismal sport, we’d rather send a club crashing down on the TV then succumb to viewing it. Luckily in the gaming industry things are that little bit different, titles like the Everybody’s Golf series on the PlayStation have added enough personality to dispel the “boring” stigma that has long been attached to the sport.
Excerpt: I'm going to come clean (there's an Outlaw type joke in there somewhere). Before I played it, I didn't much get or like the idea of this game. I could see why beach volleyball got the Outlaw treatment. Given that one of its major draws is the fact that athletic women wear very little clothing to do it, it's the kind of sport that lays itself open to exploitation (letters of complaint to the usual address).
Summary: Outlaw Golf 2 is a decent golf game and there are some humorous parts but if you're looking for a really good golf game as apposed to a funny golf game then there are much better options in particular PGA and Links. As it is however it provides some good fun golfing which isn't so far to the simulation of the game that it keeps up the fun, particularly when playing atypical golf game types that Hypnotix have made up.
Excerpt: As long as there are consoles to play them on, developers will bring us games based on the noble and sedate sport of golf. In fact, barring the earliest of systems, I don’t think I can recall a system that hasn’t played host to a golf game – hell, even the 3DO had a couple. Outlaw Golf 2 is – rather unsurprisingly – the sequel to 2003’s multi-format Outlaw Golf and comes from the same stable as the mediocre Outlaw Volleyball .
Excerpt: There are two types of sports games: serious and arcade. Hot Shots Golf falls into the latter category. Tiger Woods is a serious golf game. If youíre looking for a serious golf game, thatís the game for you, right? Or is there something else out there for you? No, itís not Links , that franchise is gone ñ for now at least. What else is there on Xbox?
Conclusion: All in all, Outlaw Golf 2 is a fantastic golf game which is a breath of fresh air against the traditional games like Tiger Woods, Links and others. The game is also a budget release which makes it very easy to recommend for anyone looking to walk the green but is tired of Tiger’s yearly update and wants to try something new without breaking the bank.
