Summary: If you like Hot Shots golf then you'll like this game no doubt. If you're of the aforementioned camp AND you like anime then you should definitely buy this game. This is a solid golf game and a lot of fun to play. It has story elements incorporated into it as well as unlockables. I own this game and Hot Shots Golf Open Tee 1 & 2 and compared to those games this one stands firm right next to them on the podium for best golf game on the PSP.
Summary: The Good: Charming characters, intriguing story, simple controls The Bad: Customization is ultimately useless, takes awhile to unlock most courses, sub-par graphics A long time ago, in a parallel dimension to Earth, there was a magical island-world known simply as Pangya. All was peaceful in Pangya until one day, an evil force summoned by the Demon King, came crashing down upon the land.
Summary: One thing I've always liked about the PSP is that it has no shortage of import-type (and sometimes just plain weird) games in its library. Pangya: Fantasy Golf is one such game, offering some fun golf gameplay with an anime-style presentation. Unlike typical boring golf games, Pangya adds a few tweaks that keep things interesting and fun. Graphically the game looks great for a PSP game, and is easy and simple to pick up and play.
Summary: Pangya is a fun game, with "game" controls that are easy to learn and master. Using the story mode I was able to unlock the players and the game story was not that bad. If you liked "hot shots" golf games, you will enjoy this game.

Summary: It's an RPG Golf game, with endless upgrades for your character and equipment, you'll play long and wide to obtain the edge against your opponents. On-line and wireless play challenges your skills via others. Who will win? Who has the coolest or hottest looking character? How long to unlock all the secrets. Buy the game, play and hook-up with friend, and find out.
Summary: I always wanted to play a nice, casual game for my PSP, and once I saw this game for PSP, I gave this game a swing at it. At first glance, it looks like a anime-styled golf game. As I started playing it, I started to enjoy it's playful anime-style golf. From the online game from Korea, Pangya ports real nice to the PSP. The controls went back to the simple style of the 3-point click and shot golf.
Summary: I bought it already being a Pangya fan, so I will say I already knew how the gameplay works going into it and didn't have any trouble at all beating the early opponents. I understand that new players often have a tough time getting through, which could be a source of frustration (it certainly was for me just starting out on the Wii version).
It's single player PangYa ... what more do you want?

Summary: Having played the PC MMO version since Season 2, I had always wanted to get a version that allowed me to just go through the game without needing anyone to play with. It's been one of the biggest problems with the PC version -- that you can't really go through tournaments or versus mode just by yourself because there is no support for any kind of true single-player mode.
Summary: This is my first time playing a golf game and when I bought this game thinking the length of the game would be short by just completing the storyline, but i was wrong. There are 9 interesting looking courses with over 20 holes in each of them. There's much to do thatle keep you into the game for awhile. The storyline is quite long and semi hysterical. As for the games sound track it wasnt any thing ear catching but it goes well with the golfing theme.
Excerpt: In my opinion it is very fun game that acctualy is addicting at times. It has great graffics and sounds. On psp version there is a story mode that help unlock new characters, special club sets and so on... Offcourse there is tournament mode that gives a lot of experiences points but you have to unlock all the golf courses by playing in lycense mode. After getting a set number of points you get lycense for the course and your free to go.
Pros: Great graphics, fun gameplay, a lot of items, good replyabilaty
Cons: vs mode is quite long and at some point starts to get boring over time
