Hot Shots Golf Fore – Consumer Guide

Mike Bracken's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Comic Mischief

Parents can rest easy with this title's content. I didn't find anything at all that would have set off my own parental sensibilities in the game. This is cartoony golf that is pretty kid-friendly. The challenge factor is probably more of a reason to not let the kids play it than anything in terms of content. Lord knows the game's challenge frustrated me on numerous occasions.  

Golf fans will find much to appreciate in the accurate golf physics found throughout the game. Whether or not one enjoys the cartoonish presentation is a matter of personal preference, but the golf itself is an accurate representation of the real game. The wonky AI can be an issue, but aside from that this is a solid golf title.

Casual gamers will no doubt enjoy the game as well, particularly since it's a complete pick up and play experience. There's not a huge learning curve to the game, making it accessible to just about everyone.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers can rest easy as well—while there is some dialogue at the various hole-out screens, it's nothing you need to hear. In fact, after you hear the same phrase a few thousand times, actually not hearing it is probably almost a blessing.
