5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Just Gets Better!, August 25, 2004
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Hot Shots Golf Fore - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
I was a big fan of Hot Shots Golf 3. Given a choice, I'd play it before I'd play Madden or Grand Theft Auto. It wasn't perfect, but there was a lot there to keep you busy and challenged.

Now comes Hot Shots Golf Fore and a great product gets even better! Some of my favorite characters from HSG3 return (although I mourn the abscence of Blue, my best power and control player in HSG3) with many more courses added (all of the full-sized 18-hole courses from HSG3 return as well). Miniature golf is added (I guess this was a feature that was on versions before HSG3, but eliminated in that game), which is a nice change of pace, although I doubt I'll spend much time there.

I'm still in the early stages of play, but there appears to be more clubs and more golf ball options in this game and play is much much tougher. I seem to remember zipping through the first ten or so "VS mode" matches in HSG3, but I've already lost my first match in this new version (one big change is that "VS mode" matches - where you play against another character and if you beat him/her, you unlock the character for yourself - is now 9 holes in length instead of 18 holes). So, if you lose, you won't have spent as much time in that loss and can try again.

There's a lot more, but it looks like Sony did it right again! Although, like a previous reviewer, I want to know what the creators were thinking with some of the comments of players and caddies ("I love show tunes")!

Get it!

PS - By the way, the strategy guide for this game (sold separately) is a very attractive book, but is pretty much useless.
