I do like how challenging the game can be at times, where it becomes simply more than having the clubs that can hit the farthers but rather actually choosing the right places to put your ball, how to make the ball not roll or bounce as much, and increased reward for making you sure you get a perfect or really near perfect impact. I will say it was annoying at first how sensitive the perfect impact/near perfect impact thing is (simply if you miss it a bit the fall goes off track and this can be tragic in some of the more trickier locations).
I also like the new rules in some of the vs matches to unlock characters, for example +1 to the stroke count for getting in the rough or +1 to the stroke count for landing in the bunker, it adds challenge and the computer player is actually not impervious to these rules. I love it.
I also like the online aspect where it makes you want to just play a 9 hole round everyday for the daily reward, its simple and often fast enough to do in 20 minutes so its not a huge commitment like some other games are.
Overall this is a wonderful game and one I will play for years. Ive already spent more than 50 hours in and have yet to get bored. I sometimes regret not playing it on the days when Im too busy with real life commitments.
Unless you absolutely positively hate anything to do with golf, this is one of, if not the best PS4 games that just about anybody, at any age can jump in and enjoy. No shooting (I love shooters), no scary monsters (I love survival horror games), no extensive rule set (you don't have to know much about golf - the fewer the shots to sink your ball, the better, the end).
At its core, Everybody's Golf (formerly Hot Shots Golf) has a game play mechanic that boils down to: use the cursor key to adjust the aim of your shot (ioptional), and then press the "X' button three times - once to start your club backswing, once again to follow through, and *the trickiest part*, one last button press to hit the ball and determine the accuracy of your shot. And that's basically it.
Sounds simple, and it to get started it is, but to be good at it, you have to time your button presses just right to get the right amount of power (distance), and then you can start working on the finer points (taking the direction and strength of the wind into consideration, "reading" the slope of the putting green, etc). Still, like I said , almost anybody can start to play the game by just knowing how to swing the club. A diverse group of people could have fun with this game pretty quick.
Along with the evolution of Playstation,t he franchise has continued to improve over the years ,while the core gameplay remains the same, and it never loses its appeal and challenge. That's why I love this game.
Character Creation: The faces are just a little flat, but besides that there are a ton of options to alter your character as you like. You can change their size, weight, eyes, mouth, hair, clothes, etc... but also their mannerisms, voice and golf swing. After picking your golf outfit and hitting the courses, you actually earn more options to continue to alter your character as you see fit (which you can do at any time... you're never completely locked in if you find you wanted something different later). You can gain clothes/clubs/balls through challenges, the shop (with in-game currency) or by beating competitors. However, beating competitors also unlocks their mannerisms and golf styles as well... so as time goes you unlock more and more! This makes it feel more like "your game" than just what they hand you. Play how you want, as realistic or as goofy as you want to.
RPG Elements: I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this at first, but I actually like this. As you play and hit the ball straighter or farther, you actually gain experience with different elements with the club you are using. This, in turn, improves your game as you go, much like practice makes you better in real life. However, you don't start the game feeling inferior, which they balanced really well. The real reason to have different clubs and balls in the game are also more than just aesthetics. Different clubs can help or alter your game and different balls can react in different ways, helping you play more to your style or the course you are on.
Other things to do: You can also go fishing, get to know the other game characters that cheer you on (that you unlock in your "Home" area as you walk around between matches) and drive your cart around if you feel like you need a break and just want to enjoy the world they created. Your character is supposed to be on an island called Golf World, the ultimate Golfing vacation spot. I gotta admit that I'd want to go there because they made a good one. It's just kinda fun to be in that world. I like to turn the music off and just listen to the ambient sounds of golfers playing and birds singing. It threw me off (in a good way) when the shadow of a plane flew past me, making it feel more like a real golf course for some reason... realistic features I guess.
Graphics: The graphics are beautiful and peaceful. Time of day and weather changes, trees sway in the actual wind currents (which also serves as a game function- another hint of wind direction), water ripples in the ponds and petals and leaves drop from trees. There are 4k and 60fps options in the options menu for those of you with the right set-up and a PS4 Pro as well, so I assume it'll look even better if you have those options. The videos released before the game came out made me think that the graphics would be okay, at best, but so far they're perfect for the world they created with very little issues and great graphics. The colors pop but also feel sorta natural for the world they are in. No hiccups or glitches that I've run into yet. Also, your character doesn't just disappear and appear on another hole. They literally walk/run each spot (even the next hole), showing you that this entire course exists and is thought out. The people who watch you play though often run (Speedy Gonzalez-style) back and forth a lot and can feel weird in the background. The developers should just let them fade in and out or just hold still. Them running around (somewhat unnaturally) takes you out of the moment when you should be lining up your shot.
Gameplay: Gameplay is nice and simple, but also not boring. 3 button presses with the X button start, give power to and fire off your shot. Just get the timing right. Choose your clubs, where you want to aim, try to hit it at the right moment... it's hard to master but easy to utilize. Changes from competitors to tournaments, even the style of hole (large, normal, tornado (which sucks in your ball)) keep the game fresh and fun, even on the same course. If you hate golf games, this isn't for you. If you hate cartoon-y golf this may also not be for you. If you like a solid golf game with great physics that you can play to your liking... this is your game. You don't have to alter your character if you don't want to and getting into the game takes about 30 minutes to figure out enough to be good. If you just want a game to hit a ball with, this is a great option.
The (only) Bad things, in my opinion:
**I wish there were motion controls for the game. It was always just so natural on the Wii to utilize motion controls on a golf game... PS has motion controls... they should allow the option. I'd love nothing more than to actually "play" this game standing up. I'd actually consider buying a move controller for it.
**Also, the beginning of the game can feel a little like a drag as you play the same course over and over until you rank up enough for new challenges... but it does get you the necessary practice and teach you various things. I just wish I could experience a few different courses right off the bat.
**My one *major* minor gripe is that the game already has quite a bit of day one Downloadable Content. From things like new golf carts to new courses, it makes me wonder if the long-term goal of the developers is to put out a cheap game (at launch only 2/3 the price of most new games) but to make up the difference by giving a ton of DLC later. I like games that continue to grow and evolve so that you can keep playing them, but on day one?? I guess that's what keeps the game costs down though... maybe... But it does annoy me that a new course is released on day one that is 12.5% the cost of the entire game. Maybe this won't bother others as much as it did me. For some people, the decreased cost may be worth a shorter game for those that don't want to play as much. The other weird thing to me is the ability to purchase a ticket to "strengthen, repair, change the shot sound effect or reset 'Customize Club'". I haven't played the entire game yet and apparently you can earn in-game items to do some of those same things, so maybe these things are more for people that want to just speed up the process a bit... Maybe I'm over-analyzing this for the wrong crowd... I just wanted you to know as maybe it will make enough of a difference to you. For me, I'm happy enough with what I have so far. I don't feel the need to buy anything else and it doesn't kill the game to not have the DLC.
Overall though, I'm very happy and enjoyed the game enough to keep me up well past when I should have been in bed.
