This is a very fun game. I've never played Hot Shots Golf before, so this was my first attempt at the series. Like I said this nearly perfect, with the only downfall being the somewhat limited customization/character controls. Other than that element its perfect on all other acounts.
If you were playing Tigers Woods while tripping on Acid you'd have Hot Shots, its pure genius. The controls are very percise and very easy to learn, Defenatly a one up over Tiger. The courses are absolutly beautiful. Very realist looking courses with very funny cartoon characters at the helm, make this sports game unique. Power Shots never get old and neither does ACEing a hole. The sounds can get a little annoying after several hours but nothing that bad.
I must commend Hot Shots on its controls, there some of the best I've ever used on a golf game. The whole swing scheme is great, and putting is very easy to learn and use. You'll be making 30 footers in no time.

I highly recommend playing this game and possible buying it if you love golf games. The PS3 was needing this game.
I like the graphics and swing system. It gives a good feel of playing golf, where I focus more on club selection and shot placement rather than working the shot meter.
However, it's too hard to unlock anything. I want to be able to play all the course in multiplayer. I don't want to spends hours in single player playing the same course over and over just so more are available in multiplayer.
The game tries too hard to make you play it rather than being fun so that you want to play it. After 3 rounds I'm pretty much done with it.
