I'm normally not a big sports game fan. But Hot Shots is so much fun with its customizeable characters and challenge modes that our entire family is now addicted to the game.

First, the basics. You have a cartoon-style character that moves from hole to hole on a golf course, with the traditional line up, swing and putt golfing moves. When you win, you earn character customizations, new players, new courses, and more. You can then change your character's hairstyle, outfit, clubs, balls, and even accessories. Many items give you bonusses and penalties. As you develop a playing style, you might work on gaining items that give you control, for example, at the expense of power.

Maybe you've done this sort of game before on a console - but you haven't seen this on a handheld! The graphics are simply gorgeous. Each course has its own look and feel, from Japanese pagodas to misty mountains. The detail of the trees and surroundings is incredible.

You might worry that the fine movements are hard to master - but actually they do a really good job with this and it becomes quite intuitive to power the main drive and to gently tap the ball into the hole.

There are little quirks with the game. In most golf games, if you are too quick on hitting the ball, you "hook" (the ball curves left) and if you're too late, you "slice" (the ball curves right). But in this game, it seems that when you miss a perfect impact, it's sort of random exactly what the ball does.

There are a few graphic issues. If you hit your ball into a tree (by accident of course), you can see that the ball hits the tree. When you move in close to do your next shot, it appears that the tree has vanished.

I will admit, I didn't have a PSP until I heard this was on the shelf. I'm a Hot Shots Golf freak! So knowing I could take this anywhere, the bathroom, my car, the kitchen, my bed and even in church (just kidding) I bought myself a PSP and picked up Hot Shots Golf Open Tee! I'm not a big expert on this system, but I was not expecting a little handheld to compare to the likes of Hot Shots Golf 3 or ""fore"" on the PS2, but to my surprise, this game is like having the actual big games in the palm of your hand, and in some respects, it's better. The big plus with this game is the ease and quickness of play. There are virtually no load times between holes and the gameplay is fast and responsive and looks pretty to boot. I can't believe how bright the game is.

The game plays terrific and I have to say "If it's not broke, why fix it" came into play with Hot Shots Golf Open Tee as the control scheme is identical to Hot Shots Golf 3 and Fore.

So if you have played 3 or Fore, you'll be right at home. The differences are in the courses and the new characters. You only have 6 courses to choose (in total) from this time, (which is pretty good for a handheld...) The characters are all new. I think there are at least 15 golfers and some secret ones too. The problem is that you only start out with 2 golfers and 1 course. Kind of the bare minimum especially if you don't want to take the time to earn the new ones, but you'll have to. That said, the game is substantially longer and grueling, but I like this aspect, because people with handhelds can kill some serious time. It takes about 5-7 matches to earn a new character. Most are only 9 holes in the beginning, but it still takes an eternity to earn new characters. Some might like this aspect, some may not.

If you have a PSP, you already know what the graphics can do. Now watch it get better with Hot Shots Golf Open Tee! This is an amazing game, and a worthy addition to the franchise. Every part of this game is great. The sound effects are amazing (kill the music in the options first though). Even when you play it through the PSP's speakers instead of the headphones, you get a surround-sound sense of it all. Birds, voices in the distance, wind blowing around you...all this and more await you on the links! The character animation is good, though the faces don't do much. I miss seeing the caddy go skidding across the grass after the ball, but that's just a small thing.

The courses are different from the PS2 version too. Some are harder than others, and the weather always plays a factor in your shots. Still, the controls are easy to use (almost exactly like the PS2 version), and easy to adapt to.

Play the challenge mode to win clothing and clubs, and to unlock characters and courses. Not quite like buying in the shop like the console versions, but at least you unlock something.

All in all, fans of the franchise shouldn't be disappointed.

I love the game's simple game play. Line up, adjust swing for yardage, and hit for sweet spot - make the ball fly. Putting on the green is made simple if you follow the lines on the grid. Challenge mode lets you unlock various Golf courses. Overall, worth every single penny. Love the game, love the characters.

This is a great game. No "ifs" and "buts". I was somewhat surprised by how much I liked this game, since I am not normally a fan of golf games. Most of them bore me pretty much right away. This however, is fast moving and great fun. It doesn't take long to play a tournament or a match.

It is an odd game in some ways. Some of the courses look very realistic. At the same time, the style of the characters is comic-oriented. Balls fly off like rockets or leave burn-marks on the green. When the ball bounces of rocks, littke "thock, thock, thock,..." bubbles appear. It would seem that all that does not go well with relatively photo-realistic scenery, but for some reason, it really works!

The game is easy to play, yet at the same time, is is surprisingly deep. I almost dare say that it provides more information and options to consider than most other games I played, yet the interface is done outstandingly well, and it all just seems very natural.

I have played this game for hours, and it has made many trans-atlantic plane rides much more pleasant. And I probably won't stop playing it until I beat the last opponent, won the last tournement, and unlocked the last useless little gimmick there is to have...
