A Completely New Way to Play Hot Shots Golf

The over-the-top Hot Shots Golf franchise is back with a bag full of PlayStation Vita features that will have players hitting the links like never before. These features begin as soon as an in-game golfer is selected, dressed for the part and is lined up to tee off.

Use tap functionality to look down the fairway to get a better look at the pathway to the green, and when ready, place the golfer in the best position and at the best angle to take a shot using PS Vita pinch and front touch pad functionality. Once off the tee players can simultaneously maneuver their golfer and line up shots with a combination of the front sticks and the rear touch pad. Need to check your form with a different view of the shot? Players can easily change the camera angles of their golfer with an augmented reality feature. And mastering the PS Vita's motion sensing capabilities will allow for the addition of extra power on shots with a flick of the device. Points for success in a round can be used for in-game purchases, including new available golfers, new outfits, and even new clubs. Multiplayer support allows up to eight players locally, while literally dozens of players can compete on the same hole in play through PlayStation Network.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Shots Golf: Anger and Aces February 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There's nothing like unwinding with a game of virtual golf, and there's nothing like having it on a portable device so you can fling the handheld at your cat when you miss the winning putt because this game, this game, urg, it makes me so damn mad!

And then I'll play another round.

Hot Shots courts you initially with its whimsical charm, easy-breezy graphics, and pick up and play accessibility; however, once you slip the ring on, forget about it. It starts demanding impossibilities; it wants you to wear clothes that are unreasonably expensive, it wants you to buy the newest clubs, even though you don't need them -- I don't need them, why do you want me to buy them?? And before you know it, you're buying pictures of people you don't even care about; music you can't listen to because it's been disabled, and time spent you'll never get back ... you'll never get any of this time back.

Hot Shots doesn't care.

In short, do you like addictive games? Are you the person that needs to own every outfit, even if you don't play the character? Do you like mastering gameplay mechanics that are affected by variables outside of your control? Me too! You'll love Hot Shots golf, even if you don't like watching golf, or playing Tiger Woods. It's more Golden Tee and Neo Turf Masters, which is a good thing.

They're seven ranks to climb, match play, training, and my favorite, online play, where you can doll up your avatar with goofy nonsense no one should care about, or hop right into the daily tournament and see how you fair against the world's top players. If you're anything like me, the answer is poorly.

Anyway, you want to buy a new game for your beautiful Vita, don't you? I know you do. That's why you're reading this, justifying the purchase. Do it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golf Fun on the Go! February 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For a little perspective, the first iteration I played of Hot Shots Golf was `Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee,' and since then I have gone back and played a few of the PS One Classics and have purchased every version of the game since. I feel this is important for you to know where I am coming from so you know where I am coming from and if my likes are similar to your own.

For my money, up until this version of Hot Shots Golf, I have to say that Open Tee 2 was probably my favorite, because it was the largest and had the greatest level of customization and the largest number of different courses to play. This game is an arcade-realism golf game, and the series has never come too close to taking itself too seriously. A great deal of the fun is found in absurd challenges and often silly visual customization.

GRAPHICS *****
Now I have heard a lot of people say that looking at a Vita is like looking at a PS3 in the palm of your hand. While this is not exactly true, this game does look between 80 and 90% as beautiful as the PS3 version (which was stunningly the only PS3 version so far). The characters are beautifully rendered and their outfit/costumes have a good deal of detail to them and beautiful textures. This game has pretty, soft lighting and decent shadows. If would have to really look for something to complain about. The game is pretty and it runs like a dream.

CONTROLS *****
The controls in this game are pretty basic, as they always have been, but however you want to arrange it or look at it, I can say "Remember the control style from that other Hot Shots game that you liked; its in here." The designers do a good job making sure you have everything that you liked from the other games, not that I ever thought it made too much of a difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down March 3, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Perfect for the vita. I have a hard time putting this game down. I bought 3 games at launch Uncharted, little deviants, and Hot shots. I like them all but this is the one I just can't put down. Loads of fun and a perfect portable game. I would hate to pay 40 bucks for it but I feel it's worth the 29.95 I paid..

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've always been a fan of the Hot Shots Golf series, and this game doesn't disappoint. It's one of my favorite games on the PS Vita so far, and I've definitely gotten more than my money's worth.

If you're unfamiliar with the Hot Shots Golf series, it's been around for more than a decade. Unlike the Tiger Woods series of golf games, Hot Shots Golf goes for a deliberately cartoony, over-the-top visual presentation. Don't let initial impressions fool you, though - the underlying gameplay is deep and can be very challenging. This game still sticks with the old-fashioned three button press system for hitting golf shots (push once to start swing, push again to set power, push once more to hit accurately), with the usual additions of allowing you to impart spin and extra power. The single-player part of the game primarily consists of a series of 40-something 9 or 18 hole events across the game's 6 different courses. A good portion of the events have modified rules to keep things interesting (maybe you get extra strokes if you hit in bunkers, maybe it's windy and rainy, etc.), and all the events have an optional bonus objective which usually is considerably more challenging than just winning the event.

The game starts easy enough, but near the end both the courses and the scores you need to shoot on those courses become very challenging. Some of the optional objectives are even harder. If you read mainstream reviews of this game, many critics have negative opinions about the game's difficulty, but I think a lot of those critiques are off-base. The difficulty ramps up slowly, so you have plenty of time to master the more advanced techniques you need to finish the latter stages of the game.
