samskivert: Hot Shots Golf 3 – PS2 (3)

29 May 2002

A solid golf game with a variety of extra goodies to keep things interesting as you progress through the ranks. I was enamored enough of the game to win all of the tournaments, but when I discovered after beating all of the characters that one had to go back and do it all again, I wasn’t sufficiently inspired by the prospect of winning their special outfits to go to the trouble. Having played far too much Mario Golf in its time, I was surprised to discover how much more I liked the feel of Hot Shots when I happened to play a couple of rounds of my old favorite. Not that I don’t have high hopes for the upcoming Mario Golf on the Gamecube, but Hot Shots certainly did a fine job of keeping me entertained in these lean times.
