I am so happy I picked this up before it was discontinued. While Tiger Woods was a standard for golf for many years, we were left with very few alternatives. That being said, although the ball physics in this title are a bit glitchy it's still tremendously fun to play. The PC version has fast loading times and very silky framerates, and the details are pretty good. I prefer to play the game with the controller versus the mouse and it interfaces with the XBOX One pretty well with dual analog playability. One thing that may frustrate people if you're not too good at this type of game is that you have to have the shot style right when you're at the putting green and you may even find yourself going over par many times but will pick it up eventually.
for 90% off..... Totally worth it. I have played 9.3 hours on record. Rage inducing, yes. Frustrating at times, yes. But, I don't expect to go pro without putting more hours into it still. Terrific game if you are tired of meters and gauges doing all the math for you. This is a game of feel, much like golf in the real world. There are many user created courses based on real world counter parts. I will enjoy this game for years to come, I am sure of it. Side note: The launcher has some basic settings for graphics. These are not the maximum options available. There is a more robust graphics setting in the game.
These reviews are dumb. It's tragic that this has a mixed rating. I've been playing golf games since the Atari, Gameboy, NES, PC through all the Links iterations, etc. Anyone who says that info isn't there for greens and stuff just has their graphics too low or something. This is a great golf game with great mechanics, not the best, but 100% passable. The remote play feature Steam added actually makes the best way to play this "online", is to use one copy and play it with Steam's Remote Play, because the experience is better.This game is worth it at full price, but if you're seeing it on sale for single digits, buy it, you won't be disappointed if you're anything but a hardcore golf sim expert that plays them all.
Tons of courses. Can be frustratingly hard at times, but it's a learning curve. Pick easier courses to start and it's a lot of fun. There is a lot of "feel" in this game, as there are no indicators of shot strength/distance, etc. I can't complain. I quite enjoy it!
First i dont know why people hate this game? I pick up this game because now is -90! Now u think should u buy it?This right now is a steal!+ I played 6 h and the game didnt crash one time for me!+ The game have tons of character customizations from clothes to create u unique character,face creation...+ Tons of golf courts,my career...+ Is more like golf simulator then golf club,but yeah i dont watch golf so i dont know golf players thats why i dont care if i play against random generated players.+ Also u need controller, better gameplay,feeling to game analog sticks need be in perfect shape,because swing is very sensitive.+ Very addicting,fun gameplay with controller!+ I finished 2 official courses events in my career and take around 4-5h+ U have 100.000 courses which u can use for my event or my career mode! +U can create u own courses!- This game will no longer be availebe for sale after June 30!- Why?They will make remake, yup 2k Pga Tour 2k21!-We all know there will be vc, buy stuff with real money...-2k onyl care about money, first they kill Mafia 3 and series, they also turn basketball simulation in gambling simulation...-Unplayable with mause and keyboard in my opinion!
An excellent golf game, it's just hidden in difficult to navigate menus.
Beautiful to look at, Excellent control system. I will admit putting takes a lot of practice because you don't have a standard power bar, you very much have to 'feel out' the putting mechanics. Multiplayer is a bit strange to set up online (local no probs so remote play is no doubt fine). A lot of people have moaned about the lack of a spin feature, to you people i say suck it up princess. You cant put spin on a ball in mid air anyway. 100% recommend
