  1. hahah, this review must be a joke… I mean seriously, if golf is not about planning ur every shot carefully, then what is it about then?

  2. From what I saw it's your problem not from the game itself, 
    How can you hit a perfect shot with that shaky press? 

    If you wanna fun with this spot please learn the basic of how to calculate.

  3. Lol I just bought the game I love it and man those graphics 😯

  4. So we've established that Ryan Clements  is angry at everyone but himself that he sucks at this game 🙂

  5. "I suck at the game, so I'm giving it a 6.5"… lol.

  6. a lot of this review sounded like "Waaah I can't play the game, therefore it suuucks… Math is haaaard, you mean not all greens are straight, this game sucks.."

  7. I don't own this game, or a Vita for that matter, but I had to pipe in about how bad this review sucks. "I'm not good" and "this game is hard" are not useful information or a basis for rating a game. I'd love to see this guy's take on the old Links games by Access; he'd probably have a stroke. "I shot an 85 on medium difficulty. For failing to stroke my ego, this game earns a 2 out of 10."

  8. Its a game you play against yourself… its fun when you play online or with a friend its cool because you want them to do well even when you're losing. You are a very bad critic its crazy how bad! I'm not a fanatic but people just want to play simulators: Races that let you catch up, Shooters that are all boxed in and appealing to the eye but are not exciting gritty and fun… hey man these games are RARE you cant win every time at the beginning you must work for the system… where people are taught to spend time after work on a quick game that is fantastic and amazing but in the end the video game did not draw that person in maybe to play for 8 hours… like some games did when I was a kid. (I'm not referring to Hot Shots Golf) If IGN is dictating what people want to play well I have to say that pisses me off that we're supposed to believe in all these bad games with high reviews. Man this game is dirt cheap right now! AND I think they did a good job!

  9. Can someone explain how to play online tourney with the vita? When I try it says "cannot enter"

  10. Ive had the original everybodys golf for psp for 10 years now and I still haven't beaten the last 2 courses. This dude is complaining? I spent hours getting destroyed but still this game is so much fun. Don't blame the game for your shittiness.

  11. Golf is a high stakes game, what did you expect? Flat terrain maybe?

  12. Dude! That's how golf works hahaha 😛
    It requires planning and a lot of time, even for a game.

    thumbs down for this review 🙁

  13. Man remember them days in Iraq when I had a PS2 and the PSP I was on this game like a mad man.

  14. well, you cant spell "ignorance" without…. hm, we all know the good old words of wisdome

  15. Absolutely terrible review and score. "One wrong swing can tank your score", well no shit. This game is excellent, especially if you are a fan of the series. Loads of DLC, Great coarses, and fun golfers, pretty much everything you would want from a hot shots game. And what's that? It's only $13.75 in the PSN store, or $15.00 at Wal-Wart, or $10.00 at Gamestop. Simply must own on Vita

  16. it's a good game but it's definetely a bit tougher than mario golf especially the putting aspect which is very unforgiving on slopes.

  17. What a horrible review. "If I mess up I might not win" is essentially what I'm hearing through this whole review. It's golf.. what the hell do you expect?

  18. Just grabbed this on clearance for $5. Awesome and addictive game. Going into and staying in the collection.

  19. 6.5??? are you high? This game is an easy 9.0!

  20. It's like this guy has never played a golf game before

  21. $4.72 on PSN right now until 8am 7/5/2016. The mechanics look exactly like Mario Golf, which is good. Without losing in a game, there is no challenge. As long as the controls are accurate and smooth it will allow for success.

  22. I do not "live, breath and eat Hot Shots", but I really love this game on Vita. It's the perfect game on the bus

  23. Did he really dock points on a golf game for being too much like real golf?

  24. His very last word of the review of the game was "gross." I am glad that the amount of dislikes doubles the likes of this video as that I hope that anyone doesn't try this game because of this poorly shot, poorly written, typical IGN review.

  25. Do you realize how real golf is? Hot Shots Golf is a great simulation of real golf in how tedious each shot can get. Was really looking forward to a decent review about this game only to hear that this guy can't play a golf game to save his life and takes his frustration out in an "objective" review.

  26. Greg Miller should have reviewed this game.

  27. -"I don´t know play videogames". Score 6.5.

  28. What a bizarre review… I wouldn't ask a vegetarian his opinion on BBQ restaurants.

  29. Jaggy visuals? Idk it looks pretty decent to me, and it's 2018.

  30. This is what happens when you grow up being told you are special and receive participation trophies for everything you do… This is the best handheld golf game of all time, btw… Change my mind.

  31. Anybody ever tell this guy "practice makes perfect". LMBO

  32. Your supposed to practice and learn a game, try it.

  33. It's a great game, don't listen to this toolbag. (2019).

  34. "minutes of looking at the screen" i'm sorry i thought that was hilarious several years later

  35. I finally played this game this year on my ps now. Idk what this dude is talking about. Obviously someone doesn't know how to win without help.

  36. It seems like the gaming gods were firmly against the vita getting a fair shot. With reviews like this and Sony themselves giving up, we were denied the best Vita it should have been. I have a vita slim and this game and I can say it’s bloody awesome. The Vita should have been THE PlayStation handheld. Every ps1/PSP game should be on the psn store, not the awful selection that’s on the euro psn at least. Reviews like this don’t help but Sony is the one that killed the Vita

  37. They need to remake this for switch this game was amazing I'd play it everymorning the lobbies were so fun and prizes you could get

  38. This was the best golf game it was so technical you really needed to understand gold to play it and enjoy it

  39. Lol bro, you're the reason they put everybody's club into the game. Use it noob.
