Other golf games need some lessons from this one!
I have had this game for a number of years. I have played other golf games along the way, but I always find myself coming back to this game for things the others just don't have. I find it hard to believe that a gamecube game can have better physics than todays golf games in terms of putting on the green. EA sports needs to contact the developers of this game and take some lessons on how the ball should look and react when putting on the green. The detail is so real as to the way a ball really looks like on the green. If you buy this old game for the putting feature only, you will be glad you did. You have to play for awhile to build your power level up, but after you do the game continues to impress. Don't think you will shoot lights out all the time either. You hit the ball with the toggle switch on the remote by moving it back to set the power, and then pushing it forward to hit. It gives some feel to the game unlike the old click,click,click of a power meter. Overall this game has some aspects that I wish todays game developers would put into their games...ie EA Sports. Give this game a shot if you can find an old copy, you can even play it on the Wii since it plays Gamecube games. Just remember that you will need a gamecube controller to play gamecube games on the Wii.
