4 Game that needs practicegizmouk | 01/05/2007 | See all gizmouk's reviews (9)Top 100 Games Reviewer I think this game is excellent, but it isn't a game that you can just pop in, play and expect to hit straight down the fairway. There are loads of settings but even my 4 year old can hit a straight shot but only when his settings are basic (as the shot won't curve). I'm on advanced setting which takes some practice but is worthwhile (same as anything, you need to practice to get it right). Once you have earned money it is best to buy some new clubs as this will improve your play/distance. Also as you play you gain skill points, these can be added to your player to give you more control over your shots. So the more you play the more you get out of it. I've read that people complain that the putting is rubbish. On basic free clubs it is hard to get any distance, but once you have purchased a good putter you'll be surprised how far a put will go! Same goes with the drivers etc. To conclude, only get this game if you are prepared to put the time into it, as its a learning curve game. But once you have got it, it is great! Personally understanding how to play golf and select clubs and shots is an advantage but it is not necessarily a golfers game as under basic setting anyone can play some good shots and have fun playing it.
