Well i'll be. Never expected to see a 'Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour' -type of game on PC. In fact i expected this game to either be a turd or something you need a hefty amount of nostalgia to play. Turns out nostalgia is not required and game stands on it's own and is done with high production values. And it's a good but whacky PC equivalent of the before mentioned legendary Mario game that is valid and fun even today 11 years after it's release.
So what's it like? Well it has got to do with 'real' golf as much as Elin Nordegren has got to do with Professional Golfing in the real world and that ain't much - except for collecting lots of gold coins, stuff from crates and generally being an ♥♥♥ on the golf field and hitting on everyone.
All levels go approx. the same: first get a score under par to unlock next level. after that you can just go nuts and try to collect and break everything on the level until you get them all. Doing objectives unlocks stuff you can buy from the shop to 'accessorize' your worm player. As you progress element hazards such as wind is introduced but you get special items such as rocket boost. Very realistic yes?
