First off, the graphics are horrible. When you look at the fairways they look like a 2-year old smeared brown and green paint together.
Second, the motion track system is not nearly as accurate as made out to be. In a few minutes I was able to hit 'perfect' shots on the Pro difficulty. Also, if you miss hit theres really only 3 misses....short, hook, or slice. The degree of hook and slice does not seem to vary and its the same everytime you hook or slice the ball. Also, its hard to control distances with your clubs. In Tiger Woods, you can stick a 4-iron on a dime from 225 out if you need too. Yeah that doesnt happen everyday in the real world but I was expecting to be able to play to certain parts of the greens instead of praying the by choosing less club and allowing the ball to run up to the green that hopefully, with some miracle, I would end up pin high.
Third, the concept is great. However, using the system feels clunky and difficult. The little club you hold is annoying, I found it easier to make good contact by simply placing my palms together like I was praying, didn't even use the club.
Oh yeah, and the courses themselves are weird. Yeah I can understand they aren't licenses courses and everything but still, give us some variation and actually study some real courses to see what one is setup like. If you're gonna put a pond 225 out from the tee at least give us a club that can consistently carry that number.
This game was definitely a let down for me. I was following its release heavily, reading reviews from over seas from the previous release and everything sounded great, but once I got it..boy I was dissapointed. So I sold it on a 'leading auction site' the same day and had it shipped out the next day.
Here's how it works. There's a unit on the floor. Two cables are on swivel joints and come out of that floor unit to a pair of gloves. You velcro those gloves onto your hands. The cables extend and retract smoothly as you move the gloves. So as you swing your hands in a golf swing shape, the gloves track your progress and know what you're doing.
Standing in front of a large screen TV, swinging your hands, holding onto a "mini-club" (so you don't hit your lamp or other living room items), it really is "like being on a golf course". So in that sense this setup is far more realistic than any button-pushing version of golf could be.
I give them great kudos for the interface. You push your hands out to zoom along the course. You wave a hand to move in that direction. It is very Virtual Reality type of stuff, like you saw on the Tom Cruise movie "The Minority Report".
Now, with all of that said, the golf gameplay is NOT great. No matter how cool the interface is, it doesn't do much good if the game itself is not well done.
You can't fault the graphics too much. This was after all a low-def game and the maps it was rendering were very large. They are a bit clunky, but that's fine. The game should have been about balls and physics, not about whispers of grass.
But the golf game has issues. If you set it on "easy", you pretty much have a guided missile that always goes into the hole. That's fine if your aim is just to walk through the course, but even beginners to golf should get some accurate feedback so they can improve.Read more ›
