Summary: I have been a fan of Pangya since I found the MMO. Unfortunately the online game had many draw backs, mainly the sheer volume of people who use bots and sell items for astronomical amounts of pang. When I learned about the hand held version I immediately ordered it and I have not looked back since. Much like the MMO, you have to earn Pang to purchase new items. Unlike the mmo, your characters come free as you play through story mode, and nothing requires IRL money.
Summary: I had never played a single golf game in my life before buying this game. Nor had I played any kind of golf outside of mini golf and did not know any rules of the game. I saw a launch trailer for this game that really stood out and I wanted to try something different so I took a crack at it. I ended up playing it every minute I had when I wasn't working or sleeping. The story campaign is massive and will take a considerable amount of time to clear.
Summary: This is better than the other golf games. There lots of characters you can play with, and you can dress them up and stuff. You can do story mode or free play, and it always gets interesting each time you move to another level. I always get excited when there will be a new character you will play next.

Hope this helps, Amazon

Summary: So, just to give you a little bit of where I'm coming from...I never was really fond of golf (and especially golf video games - I have tried some over the years). Also, the main reason I got this was because I heard it had a storyline...and such a "contradiction" ("golf game" and "story") I couldn't pass up...and the trailer further sparked my interest. Plus, it was inexpensive here on Amazon.
Summary: my first impression with this game was " great its another golf game just like Lets Golf ",, but its not, it has a story line.. if you play it in story mode, and you can play with other too in multiply player mode too. the controls are hard to get used to at first, but once you got them down, you can play for hours and not mess up a swing..LOL. The graphics are great, the music is fun, and the over all game play is easy and fun to play over and over.
Summary: I am a huge fan of golf games, but I am also a huge fan of anime and manga. This game created in Korea features anime style art and fantastical and whimsical golf courses. I like these games because you can use the free play modes to just play golf without worying about beating your opponent. My other favorite golf games are the Tiger Woods PGA tour games which are also extreamly fun and give you a selction of courses to play in the free play option.
Summary: Of course, the inevitable comparison must be made to Hotshots Golf. Quite honestly, I like Pangya better, and this is because there is more reason to golf than in Hotshots. There is a story mode (unfolding with anime style art, text-only, and un-animated), a license earning mode, a tournament mode, and a practice mode. The story mode progressively unlocks other characters you can use.
