Excerpt: fan. Luckily, there's a pretty good reason for all the love I have for the series: it's friggin' awesome. It seems no matter the platform, no matter the tech, longtime series developer Clap Hanz never seems to get tired of going back to the virtual links and it shows; Much of that comes down to the fact that the gameplay is about as polished here with the "old" system as you can get.
Excerpt: Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2's core swing mechanic remains largely unchanged. Even though Clap Hanz decided to change the shot mode for the PlayStation 3 version of the game, they kept the PSP version identical to its predecessor; a wise decision in my opinion. The really great thing about the Hot Shots franchise is it can be as simple or as complicated as you want.
Pros: Tons of Unlockables, Addicting Gameplay, Nice Graphics, Online Play
Cons: Might be a little to much of the same for Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 1 fans.
Excerpt: Game: Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 Genre: Sports – Golf Platform: PSP Ever since Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds was released on the PS3 earlier this year, I have been completely hooked. Even though the series has been around since the days of the first PlayStation, I had avoided it for years simply because I don’t like golf. With Hot Shots , though, that’s not an issue; the game is so quirky, fun, and addictive, it’s easy to get sucked in even if you’re not a golf fan.
Excerpt: It's unusual how people often find watching golf utterly boring, but there's no stopping gamers from getting hooked to the sport's virtual counterparts. Think about how much time you've spent playing Flash-based golf games on your PC when you're bored in class, work, or home. If you enjoy games like Tiger Woods and Hot Shots Golf, then think about how much time you've spent playing those over the years.
