Об этой игре

The Golf Club is HB Studios’ next generation golf simulation. Stunning visual presentation and outstanding gameplay are to be expected but what really takes The Golf Club into the next generation is the procedural generation of courses and depth of social interaction. The Course Creator can generate a brand new course in seconds which can be shared and played immediately online with friends and other gamers across the world. There are also full editing capabilities for courses, Tournaments and Tours. Challenge your friends on a new or existing course in real time or try to beat their best recorded round. Add to this a myriad of stat tracking and personal bests of friends and rivals to beat, notifications, challenges and social media integration and you truly have a golf club worth joining.

INTUITIVE CONTROL SYSTEM

We’ve created and fine tuned a swing mechanic that is more about feeling and fluidity above the users’ accuracy of hitting a marker on a power bar. Whilst anyone will be able to pick the controller up and play comfortably, the best players on the global leaderboards will be those with the best feel for the different golf shots and who are able to take into account ball lie, weather and terrain conditions.

INSTANTANEOUS GAMEPLAY


No loading times between holes means you are straight back on the Tee after sinking your putt on the previous green. Also, minimal loading times into a new course make for a refreshing change to your typical console game.

UNLIMITED COURSES


No more getting bored of the courses given to you by the developer. With four clicks you can generate a unique course never seen before that’s ready to play.

GENERATE COURSES


With four clicks of a button from the main menu the game will generate for you a never been played before course. The variation is infinite!

If you want to tailor the courses a little more there are high-level options available to you. Examples of these are the number of holes, par distribution, fairway width, number of bunkers, green size, green slope and rough coverage.

EDIT AND CREATE YOUR OWN COURSES


The editor gives you the ability of create from scratch or mould anything on the course. You can alter the terrain, move tees, move greens, move holes, delete holes, add holes, bunkers, rivers, ponds, trees, foliage, buildings, animals and other objects.

LARGE SELECTION OF PRE-DESIGNED COURSES SHIPPING WITH THE GAME


Courses for all skill levels and utilizing the best of HB’s creative talents will ship with the game. They can be played individually but will also make up the tournament itinerary for the pre-designed Tour that also comes with the game.

LOCAL MULTIPLAYER


Up to four players can play locally. Differentiate yourselves with different character models and clothing and choose between stroke play, match play or fourball.

ONLINE SHARING AND PLAY


Play others creations - work your way through the huge database of user created courses, each rated by other users to help make the decision easy to make.

Share your courses with the World – when you’re happy with your creations you can publish them for the rest of the world to play.

Play against others live or from the past - each round you play on every course is saved Online. Choose from Friends Rounds, Record Rounds or Rivals Rounds (others players close to your ability) to compete against. Their ghost balls and scores will be visible throughout your round giving you the feeling of competition without losing the instantaneous game play. Ghost and live balls can be hidden if so desired either selectively or en masse.

Watch others play the courses you’re on live – through our ball trace system you can see other users from around the world on the course that you are playing live, even if they’re on different holes.

Обожаю гольф, поэтому взял сразу, как только увидел (еще в раннем доступе).
Но ожидал большего. Помните Tiger Woods PGA Tour?
ЕМНИП последняя удачная была где-то 2005 вроде... Так вот эта уступает ей во всем!
Мое мнение - ребята очень поторопились с релизом. Потенциально игра неплохая, но ее еще пилить, пилить и пилить.
Управление не отлажено - чувствительность регулировать нельзя, а выставленная - просто чудовищна, рабочий ход мышки где-то порядка 5 миллиметров. Отдельного упоминания достойна фирменная, судя по всему, фишка: движения гольфиста отстают от движения джойстика/мышки на секунду-полторы, что здорово тренирует Вашу нервную систему.
Режим обучения/тренировки отсутствует как класс, поэтому все Ваши потуги разобраться с "интуитивно понятным управлением" прямиком пишутся в вашу статистику. Так что любителям похвалиться красивой статой - просьба не беспокоиться.
Вам нравились в Тайер Вудсе такие вещи как режим карьеры, прокачка персонажа, инвентарь? Так вот, здесь этого нет и впомине. Равно как и внятных ИГРОВЫХ достижений ("сыграть партию с другом" к игровым достижениям отнести трудно). В общем, повторюсь, до десятилетней давности "Тайгер Вудса" - этой игре, к моему великому сожалению, как до луны.
Зато есть встроенная социальная сеть, что по нынешним временам несомненно чертовски круто...
Сохраненки делаются где-то в облаке, а сетевой код написан людьми свято уверенными, что сеть работает везде, всегда и бесперебойно, поэтому партии лучше не откладывать... не факт, что сможете продолжить с того места, где остановились, а не десяток лунок "тому обратно".
Регулярные глухие зависания при выходе из игры похоже имеют ту же природу.
Ну и кроме того еще куча не доведенных до ума мелочей, ничего кроме раздражения не вызывающих. Пожалуй единственное, в чем это творение опрежает упомянутого "Тайгера
Вудса" - это графика. Но при этом требования к железу - совершенно неадекватные, ну а на низких настройках игра уступает "конкуренту" десятилетней давности и в этом компоненте.
Оптимизация? Не, не слышали...

Возможно разработчики и доведут рано или поздно ее до ума, но почему-то очень сильно в этом сомневаюсь ((
А "на момент сейчас" - ей красная цена рублей 100, не больше.

P.S. Ну и да, "портировано с приставки" - торчит изо всех щелей...

Don't get me wrong. With the demise of the Tiger Woods Golf franchise us fairway junkies have been waiting for a game to come along and give us our knee pant, 9 iron fix. This game will be that, one day. Right now the game is being updated side by side with the console build of the game. Very little effort has been put into the controls for mouse users. So you either need to play with a Xbox controller for the PC or struggle to figure out the who what where when and why of how the game registers your mouse movement. There seems to be no ability to control roughly how hard you whack the ball, I still haven't seen much influence from using the fade and draw features. It makes it hard to not want to break your digital club around the electronic trees surounding you on the course. That all being said the game is still in early stages, one day the game might be the next great golf game for both PC and console. One day. Right now they are putting too much into social features like friends lists and competative play, meanwhile very little into the ability to teach players how to use their control systems to get precise shots. I'm no stranger to golf games but I'm having a very hard time being consistant with this game.

Edit/Update: I've had the chance to play a few rounds with an XBox controller, and I've found the controls equally as hard to master. I think the problem still lies in not having a meter system either in game or at least as part of a learning feature that help you adjust to the control scheme.

As for the rest of the game. A lot has been put into implementing the social features. The game has single, tournament and tour features. I really like the choice of play variety. However unless you happen to bring 3 other golfers in your bag at the bottom with the loose tees good luck. There is no match making feature that I've come across. So if you don't have other players to play with you wind up being matched with imaginary ghost players who represent some of the best players that have played that course. Talk about frustration. As I have said the controls will drive you batty, but it's worse when an imaginary player with a -7 is driving them right to the green, taunting you while you try to work your way out of the sand. The feature was so annoying the do now have a way to turn it off. So obviously this game does want to promote social play. But for those of us who don't have golf loving gaming buddies it would be nice to have a match feature to meet up with other single players for some rounds.

I have not used the course making feature, but I've read that it too can be very difficult to use. However there are many well made player designed courses, that is a great feature of the game.

While they are constantly improving the social features of the game, the frustration of the controls combined with the under developed ability to actually use the full social interface make all the implemented features still seem far off. I will revisit this game soon hopefuly after some more updates to see what they have done.

What an utter disappointment for a game with so much potential and practically zero competition on the PC market. Very limited PC graphics optimization and horrible performance issues prevent me from recommending this game in its current state. With wonky putting, an unreliable swing mechanic, and lackluster ball physics (seriously the same bounce on every terrain except sand), you'd best save your money until this is patched.

On the plus side the sound design is top notch and the course creator is a great feature, however its certainly not enough to justify buying a game that feels like its still in beta.

No multiplayer, not optimized for pc, no real golf rules, no career mode, it's missing the essentials.
