Excerpt: Hypnotix's Outlaw sports series, which thus far has included Outlaw Golf and Outlaw Volleyball, has labored under the notion that sports with relatively limited appeal would be more engaging if they had strippers, extreme violence, and heaping helpings of dirty humor. This formula certainly has a way of tickling some of the more base impulses, but Hypnotix has been wise enough not to rely on naughty pubescent thrills entirely, and the resulting games themselves have been...
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).
Excerpt: More than two years after the original "Outlaw Golf" hit shelves, Ice Tray, Summer and friends are revamped and back to take the world of golf by storm with their innovative style of play and crude sense of humor. The sequel offers more than twice as many courses, tons of multiplayer game modes, and even Xbox Live compatibility. Does “Outlaw Golf 2” climb to the top of the leader board, or is it still struggling to get on tour?
Excerpt: A brand new golf game for only twenty clams?!?! That is what you get when you pick up a copy of Global Star's sequel to Outlaw Golf. In Outlaw Golf 2, players are treated to more of the same wild and crazy antics that made the first game such a hit. For the most part, it comes together pretty well.
Conclusion: OG2's slapstick violence and smut is something you’ll either snigger at once or twice at and then not notice again, or be horrified at and wonder what it’s doing in a golf game – one thing is for sure, if Outlaw Golf actually were all that “outlaw”, it’d have an 18 certificate, you can’t help feeling it wants to be the GTA of the golf game world, but despite some over-deliberate bawdiness and half naked women never quite sheds golf’s conservative shackles.
Pros: The whole game just looks, plays and feels, ., Xbox Live enabled., Downloadable content would be nice., It's only £20 for goodness' sake!
Cons: 8 courses won’t keep you entertained forever., All the players swing the same., No Tiger Wood’s-style player/swing editor., OG2 is a lot easier than the original Outlaw Golf.
Excerpt: Un jour de pluie. Deux amis discutent à l'abri de leur béret cousu de carreaux multicolores, l'eau ruisselant sur leurs pantalons en tweed, appuyés sur leurs armes d'acier à la courbure assassine. Soudain, et sans aucun signe ne trahissant son énervement imposant, l'un d'eux se lisse la moustache, tout en manipulant du bout de ses chaussures à crampons une motte de terre innocente.
Conclusion: Am Ende bleibt also eine Golfsimulation, die ohne Probleme aus dem Rahmen fällt, einen klasse Multiplayermodus bietet und nicht zuletzt auf Grund des niedrigen Preises selbst für Golfhasser einen Blick wert sein dürfte. Trotzdem: Es wäre mehr drin gewesen!
Conclusion: Das erfrischende Szenario von Outlaw Golf 2 möbelt den oft als langweilig verschrienen Sport ordentlich auf. Schöne Mehrspielermöglichkeiten, humorvolle Kommentare, der verbesserte Umfang und nicht zuletzt der attraktive Verkaufspreis lassen kleine Technikschwächen und andere Mankos meist in Vergessenheit geraten.
