Graphics: Very clear excellent graphics, fun animations. The players are anime-like, an excellent game.

Controls: easy to learn, but timing is everything- You need great hand-eye co-ordination to hit your shots just right.

Strategy: it can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be, you can select from easy-shot or more advanced shots. You need to judge the best path for your skills, your ability to hit just the right amount of the shot, club selection, etc. (just like in real golf)

Sound: I cant judge sound since I'm deaf, but for deaf gamers, the game is pretty easy to understand, and everything is explained on screen (I hardly even needed to look at the game manual- downloadable .pdf)

There are indicators to show you the slope you are on, putting can be challenging.

Unlockable courses, online play, multi-player play are options offered. 3 modes- challenge, stroke play, or training.

I am seriously considering using the "Keep It" option on this game.

I would highly recommend this as a fun game for family or get-togethers.

Why Are People Comparing This To Tiger?

People never cease to amaze me in life. People on here are actually comparing this to the Tiger Woods series. Why??? This game is so far from it. Tiger's game is supposed to be more of a sim. How does that not register with so-called gamers on here giving this game low scores and obviously not having the intelligence to express why they hate this game so much. This game has a single, simple mission. To be fun for EVERYONE. It just so happens to be a VERY competent golf game as well. So please stop trashing games on this site if you don't like the genre.

The whole reason for having people give their own reviews here is to help others decide if they want to spend their time and money on a game. Not so idiots can give their lazy one liner reasons for why a games sucks having not played it more than fifteen minutes. I have played a demo of this game, quite a lot actually, and then borrowed it from a friend to give the game some real time. This is a really cool little game. I like the play mechanics. The quirky character design, and the courses. This is what they call in the industry a 'solid' title. If you were going to put this up against Tiger Woods, of course you would think it sucked because you obviously didn't do your homework on what to expect from this game.

If you are looking for a fun game to kill some time with just yourself, and possibly the people in the family, then this is your best bet on the PS3. Not only is it a great game in it's own right, it is a great game to play with your family. My wife is BY FAR a non-gamer, but, this is the ONLY game that made her pick up a controller on the PS3, and Tigers game is the ONLY game other than bejeweled she plays on the 360. She doesn't even LIKE sports. Go figure???

This game is a solid 9.0, and STILL has a lot of room for expansion and improvement. Not enough courses is my only real complaint about the game, but, DLC is one of the greatest advantages for this generation of consoles. Definitely a purchase.

Hotshots has always delivered a good golf game in recent years and Hotshot: out of bounds is a step up from the past games. The new advance controls are awesome are there really easy to get used to. The graphics are also sweet. There is also multi player
and a ton of unlockables that will keep you busy for hours.
