The worst review I've read recently was about Hot Shots Golf. IGN actually knocked the game in his summary and scoring because you can apparently play an entire 9 holes of golf and screw it all up in 1 hole.
I laughed out loud when I read it. This person had apparently reviewed this game without having any exposure to the game of golf at ALL. I mean... I don't really play golf in real life, but even I know that what he just knocked the game about is *EXACTLY* what the game of golf is all about.
I read that in one of these threads too. The game plays just like every other Hot Shots Golf game. Realistic physics, silly characters, tons of cosmetic and equipment unlocks. It's certainly MOTS, but if you like HSG, it's great.
