-No licensed products i.e., Innova, Disc Craft, and such. This game might have had some value if there was some factor of unlockable content but nope, there is none. You have 4-5 generic discs (putter, mi-range, curve, driver...) and that's the end of it.
-18 holes of disc golf, period. 1 small course and that's IT. It's just a generic open space randomly populated with objects and water.
-There's clunky controls in ultimate frisbee and it's pretty difficult to tell your teammates apart aside from their position on the field.
-In ultimate frisbee there is little visual evidence that your character is doing much of anything like on defense you just kind of stand there with no indication that your character is blocking.
-A standard frisbee is cheaper than this game and yields a million fold more fun.
-A disc golf disc is slightly more expensive but most disc golf courses are free.
That's it, I have nothing good to say about this game. There's far better budget titles out there (Cooking Mama comes to mind) and the experience this game aims to recreate is easily accessible to many people for a minimal cost unlike something like a golf game like Tiger Woods since playing Pebble Beach can cost upwards of $400 a round and even cheap clubs are pretty pricey.
This game deserves 0 stars, do not buy!
As a disc golf enthusiast I can't wait for this winter to end, playing out in the snow and cold is just brutal. I found this in the bargain bin and decided to give it a shot. I won't lie, this game could have been a lot better. The controls implemented with the DS are not the best, but they are on the right track as far as making good use of the touch pad for throwing and direction. The lack of licensed discs and only 18 holes is disappointing, and the graphics are not great, even for the DS, but behind it all, this stripped down disc golf game works if you really love the sport and might not have the ability to play at a given time. I imagine I will play this through a few times before spring comes again, put it down and pick it up again next winter, but for the bargain price, it was totally worth it.
The disc golf side lacks any features and all you can do is play a front 9 back 9 or all 18. No computer opponent no low score leader board. You you pointlessly playing. it might just be my taste but I thought the game was a little too tough. There wasn't a leveling up system or anything like that to keep you playing. To throw you just flick in a straight line on the second screen. Obviously this lacks feedback so it's hard to get a feel for how far the disc is going to go. There is also no meter so you can't see afterward how well your shot went. Its worth pointing out that the graphics are sub par to boot.
I didn't buy this name for the ultimate half of it but I tinkered with it for fun. I'm not familiar with the sport in real life and this did nothing to help that.
Overall just avoid this game at all costs.
