Product Description

The award-winning gameplay of Hot Shots Golf returns with non-stop, fast-paced golf action. Join the new cast of characters who come to tee off on the greens and on each other with trash-talking quips. So lace up your spikes, set your sights on the flag and "be the ball." Enhanced graphics deliver vibrant golf environments complete with simulated weather conditions that affect the flight of the ball and the speed of the greens while 15 off-the-wall characters, each with their own skills and characteristics and attitude, keep you busy! Platform: PlayStation 2 ESRB Rating: Everyone Genre: Sports

Forget tradition, collared shirts, and stuffy resorts--now you can express yourself on the golf course without the snobby attitude. Hot Shots Golf 3 offers nonstop, fast-paced golf action, with a smart-alecky, trash-talking cast of characters. The enhanced graphics deliver vibrant golf environments complete with simulated weather conditions that affect the flight of the ball and the speed of the greens. The new Swing Meter will test your skills with a variety of interfaces depending on the lie of the ball, whether it's in the fairway, rough, tree line, dirt, or sand trap. From the morning mist through dusk, the Time of Day feature provides a realistic approximation of a full day at the golf course. There are no delays between holes, and no delay between the time you pick up the game and the moment you can start playing. However, there is still plenty of depth for golfers of any experience level. Earn Hot Shot Points for superb performances, then cash in your points for equipment and insane gadgets.

Let's get one thing straight: I've never given two shakes about golf, either in real-life or video game form. I'd never played a golf game until Hot Shots Golf 3. This review will show my lack of knowledge about the sport, and will contain no comparisons to Swing Away Golf, Tiger Woods 2002, Tee Off Golf, or even the first two Hot Shots games, because I've never spent one second playing any of them. In fact, being Golf Ignoramus #1, I may seem like the least qualified person in the universe to review this game.
However, HSG3 is not a golf game just for golf-heads. It is fun, pure and simple - in fact, it's the most fun I've had with a game since Samba de Amigo and Virtua Tennis on the Dreamcast. HSG3 is one of only two games I've ever pre-ordered; even now I'm really perplexed about what attracted me to it. I was positive the game would be a winner.
Lucky for me, I was right. HSG3 makes golf fun and easy to play, yet contains enough depth to keep it from being silly. It's a fantastic multiplayer game as well - my similarly golf-ignorant friends got involved immediately. We now consider it a multiplayer classic.
First off, the game is gorgeous to look at. The characters have goofy, oversized heads, and behave in bizarre, endearing ways. They'll do backflips when you get a birdy, and will even line-dance with some frogs. The game is full of visual whimsy: a rainbow trail follows the ball on an accurate stroke, your caddy kicks up a puff of dust as he takes off after the ball, and the golf ball will even burst into flames on certain occasions. The true stars of the game are the courses: lush, detail-filled marvels that are just magnificent.

I don't understand myself. I've never played golf on a course, and I don't really care to start, but I'm a sucker for video game golf. So, many moons ago, I happily tucked Hot Shots Golf (the PSX original) into my collection of epileptic-seizure-inducing-titanic-explosion-giant-robot-espionage-assault-blast-fests and played the heck out of it. I never got #2 but I really dug #1. I truly loved gathering points to unlock all the courses, and prided myself on my eventual learned ability to beat each computer player. It was a unique video game experience in that I wasn't just figuring out how to use the program's quirks against it, how to cheat some line of AI code into trapping itself into a no-win situation and then blasting away at it, no-- I was learning the ins, outs, ups and downs of How to Play Golf. I learned how to read the lie of the green, how to play with or against the wind for a few more yards or a little less roll. I felt like I was actually accomplishing something while I sat my living room. As if I was somehow preparing myself for the original white-man retirement inevitability-- a bag full of clubs on a 12-pack Sunday.
Happily, I report I have collected no such affectation yet. No, in these darkening days of the twilight of my youth I can only claim to have a similar, but far less tiring and expensive new hobby-- I sit my barracks room and play the crap out of Hot Shots Golf 3.
No, seriously-- I can't put this thing down. I even popped out Deus Ex, a totally engaging CRPG like nothing else out there, and left it gathering dust for a WEEK because I can't stop laughing at that idiot Mel every time I birdie and he croons out "Bird's a-chirpin'!" like he's blissfully gassy from a 3-piece chicken combo.

I've tried several golf games over the years, on each of the systems I've owned (NES, SNES, PSX, PS2). I've also played a couple of different golf games on the PC. While the golf physics have been fairly consistent throughout the years, one thing most of the games have lacked is a "fun factor". After one or two rounds of 18, most golf games have lost the replay value. One factor for this happening was that it took so long to complete a round of golf.
Hot Shots Golf has changed this. The game is simply fun. One advantage is how fast paced the game is. A round of 18 in tournament mode takes only about a half hour to play (think about that....2 minutes or less per hole), but you still have to exercise skill in hitting the shots well. You will also have to do some thinking in re-aiming some shots, reading the green, and attempting to chip the ball in. As you win tournaments, you earn special prizes. Prizes include a new set of clubs (with different abilities, one grants you extra distance while sacrificing impact ability), new golf balls, new caddies. If you play in VS mode, if you beat the opponent, that character is unlocked and is now playable. Each character has his or her own strengths and weaknesses, and some are clearly better than others.
There are two drawbacks that I can think of. One: The character design is horrible. The character look so hokey. Two: after the 10th hole in tournament mode (at least on the first course) the game may lock up. My advise would be to save your game after hole 9 (if you're having a good round and don't want to lose it) and if resume play if it locks up. It is annoying, but other than the first day I played the game, I haven't had the problem. It's something to watch out for.
I haven't had this much fun playing a golf game ever. It is very easy to pick up and start playing fairly well, but difficult to master completely. Well worth the money.
