5.0 out of 5 stars A golf game for non golfers June 16 2010
By Jeff
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I wanted a game that didn't involve shooting for once. Don't get me wrong, I do lover shooters, it's just after a while it can get tiresome trying to blow away anything that moves. What could be more pleasent than wacking a ball carefully across a lovely manicured country side. I went with Hot Shots golf over Tiger Woods simpley because I wanted a golf game that wasn't so technical. The Tiger Woods game seemed like a complicated game like Madden NFL, no chance that a casual person could pick up the game and enjoy it. Hot Shots is the causal virtual golfers game, but no so easy that there is no challenge. The characters are silly and the pace is easy going. At some point in the game I switched from the traditional shot method to the advanced and my game improved. This is a good example of how the game works, it eases the casual gamer into the harder parts of the game. It's just the relaxing kind of game I needed after trying to survive master BatteField Bad Company or Call of Duty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable Aug. 19 2013
Verified Purchase
Physics are good and consistent throughout the game. Graphics are nice and the overall feel is not too "arcade-ish".
I also play Tiger Woods 12 + 14. Hot Shots is not the same but I have enjoyed it for well over 100 hours. Good deal for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool jeu de golf May 27 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Hot shot est un jeu de golf simple a maitriser, dans un esprit purement japonais. Plein d'objets a gagner, des terrains de golf originaux, de quoi vous occuper longuement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good installment in the Hot Shot golf series March 21 2008
By Kyle Tolle - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After playing all the Hot Shot Golf games on the Playstation 2 and being very pleased with all of them, I am again impressed with the new Out of Bounds version for the Playstation 3. Beginning with a look at graphics, I don't know if I would label them true 'next generation' in appearance but they are very nice to look at. Whether it is reflections off of water or vegetation or clothes on the players and caddies, it is well done in my opinion. As far as seamless game play, you're going to get that here. There is no lag or stutter in any animations and the load times are virtually non-existent in almost every case. Movement from hole to hole is quick and a round of golf can be too. I can play a round of 9 holes in about 12 to 15 minutes (I'm still on the 9 hole challenges at this point in the game).

When it comes to the controls used in playing the game, they are easy to learn and not hard to master, with one exception. This new version introduces a new type of advanced shot method where you watch the backswing of your player and look for flashing lights at certain points to gauge how hard to swing. Upon making your downswing, a circular meter below the golfer has a ring around it that collapses toward a ball icon and when the circle shrinks to encompass the ball, you hit the X button on the controller at just the right time to get a perfect hit. It sounds complicated but it isn't really. It is all a matter of timing and a little patience required. I personally still use the traditional shot method as seen in previous Hot Shot games which is the power bar at the bottom which gives you more precision in setting power and showing just where to hit a solid impact on the ball. I've found the advanced shot type a bit awkward personally and even though the manual says that the new method offers better range and impact zone, I haven't noticed any significant differences between the two shot methods and this is after playing many rounds with many different types of clubs using both shot types.

So far I've only played on two courses in the challenge mode (you open up new courses after beating a computer opponent in each challenge session) and what I've seen so far is good stuff. There is options to play regular games (stroke, match play, etc.) aside from the challenges and you can do practice rounds also where you can set course conditions to help you make shots in certain types of situations. There are 5 main characters that you can choose to start out with and each one has their own individual strengths, animations, and funny ways of talking. There is also several different caddies that add a good dose of humor now and again during the rounds.

I haven't played online yet and I don't know If I will do that but the instruction manual is very detailed on how to do this and the manual is excellent regarding all other facets of the game also. Something to look forward to, according to the game makers, is the fact that later on you can go online to download new content for the game including new courses, new gear, and other goodies. If you're a past fan of Hot Shots Golf, I would definitely recommend picking up Out of Bounds because it's a great game in my opinion and should bring many hours of fun to those that like golf.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, pretty, but lacking in content May 20 2008
By Matthew R. Costello - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a long time fan of this series, and this game keeps the same solid gameplay and adds some very pretty graphics. Also, they have added a new shot system, which took a few minutes to get used to but I now prefer. Keep in mind that if your'e used to these games the old system is exactly the same and is always an option (except for a few tournaments that require the new). Also, the online mode is great. You can enter scheduled tournaments, which have a time limit per hole but you dont see any other players, or more normal 8 player games with friends or random people. This adds alot of depth to the game, but people online are really good, so be warned that you will not do well at first.

However, there are only 6 courses and 15 golfers. They just started selling new golfers on the playstation network, and I am sure extra purchased content is the name of the game in this title's future. Its fun, but I am only giving it 3 stars because of the lack of content and having to buy more future content to get the same number of courses as previous titles, even on the psp!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Hot Shots just as good as it was when I first played March 20 2008

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing Hot Shots Golf since the first time it came out on Playstation and it never loses its fun. This new game, first version for the PS3, is just as fun as the orignal, plus with updated graphics. The controls are tight, the sounds are great, I have not been able to stop playing until my girlfriend wrestled the controller away from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun factor is high March 24 2008
By Paul Gibson - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great golf game. I've messed around with a few golf titles in the past, and found myself getting bored with them rather quickly. But Hot Shots golf seems to put 'fun' at the top of it's priorities.

At first, I thought I might be put off by the cartoonish style graphics, but the gameplay is just so good that I really don't care anymore.
It's the coordination, timing, and calculating that gives this game such great replay value.

If your tired of all the heavy handed FPS in the gaming world, then give yourself a break and go play Hot Shots golf. You'll have fun!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly addictive March 31 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There's not much that I can say that hasn't all ready been said by other reviewers. This game is beautiful, and a lot of fun. You're given two starting characters with a caddy to choose from. The environments are simply breath taking.

But that's not the selling point of this game. No, the online play is the best feature and while it may not have voice chat it is still highly enjoyable! You're able to customize your own little character that looks somewhat similar to a Mii from Nintendo's Wii. As you win tournaments against other players you receive new items to customize your character with.

I highly recommend this for any fan of casual golf games, that likes to play with other people.
