Was hoping to have a golf game that looked good and played easy for when bro's came over to have fun with the PS3 Move and some brews. The load times are deplorable. Three people could play through a real life course faster than on this game. Just trying to get a game going is a tedious task with all the menu hopping you have to do. Meh....
First off, just know I love this title and have playing it for years. that being said, Heres the bad and theres a plenty for everyone.
Gameplay: I dont know if it was laziness or just a bad idea to instill this caddie into the game. The caddie will advise you to use a full swing 3 iron but the aim will be wrong. Fine right? WRONG! More often then not when you use a custom shot your not able to access all your clubs and all your shot types. Horrible. As you progress it gets to the point were you just do what the caddie suggests. EA took away alot of the users control and own personal gameplay style out of the game.
The price: $60 for a game (another 4 and change for taxes) and they want you to purchase 21 courses for four dollars a piece! REALLY!!! oh and if you dont good luck with the consecutive weeks at #1 cause if you dont play a week because you didnt purchase the game you fall back to #2. You can also buy sponsor upgrades as apposed to earning them through gameplay. Whats the point. At least this one is a personal choice of being lazy, but the courses are just a fleecing of your hard earned money.
EA should be fell shame for this travesty. They wont, but they should. Do not buy. Do not give them the satisfaction of even renting this game.
