Real World Golf Review (Xbox)

About.com
4 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Real World Golf is one of the best golf games for the Xbox. You get to hold a club in your hand and take full swings and play through a real round so how can that not be fun. It really is as close to real golf as you can get without actually going outside. Whether you are a novice or an experienced golfer, Real World Golf has something to offer by both teaching you how to play as well as letting you practice and hone your swing.

Real World Golf Review

GameSpot
4 May 2006
  • Excerpt: There's a very significant level of abstraction that happens in video games that imitate real-life activities. When it comes to golf video games, even the analog swing mechanic found in the Tiger Woods PGA Tour games, while a visceral improvement over the meter-based swing mechanics that previously dominated golf video games, is still only symbolic of actually standing out on the fairway and swinging a golf club.
  • Pros: Feels more like real-life golf than any other golf video game, Fairly transparent interface makes it easy to pick up for the casual fan
  • Cons: Weak selection of gameplay modes, Really terrible presentation, Novelty not worth the $70 price tag

  • Excerpt: The Gametrak Game System is the heart and soul of Real World Golf. Used in place of your usual Xbox controller, the Gametrak is comprised of four pieces of equipment. First you have the Base Unit, a sensor box that connects to your Xbox and sits on your floor. Next is the Foot Pedal, which connects to the Base Unit and acts as the controller’s sole button. Then you have a pair of Trak Gloves.

  • Excerpt: Over the years developers have come up with a number of ways to emulate the golf swing in video games, from the old-school Triclick button system to the more recent Trueswing method. Those days could very well be over. With the help of In2Games’ Gametrak Game System, Real World Golf virtually puts the club in your hands. I know what you’re thinking: Is the motion capture technology accurate? Do you have to swing like a pro to play Real World Golf?

  • Excerpt: There are definitely some unique aspects to being a 30-something gamer in today’s world. Unlike my school days of Atari 2600 and Nintendo or my college run with Sega Genesis, my gaming today is not done around my neighborhood pals or drunk dorm buddies, instead it’s done in my home. My home that I share with my wife, who is neither a gamer or drunk enough to join in.
