Review
Superior GolfSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Since this game is a golf game, there's no actual story. Your main goal is to win each golf course. Surely the game's mechanics need some practice (as in all golf games) at first in order to get more acquainted to its gameplay.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The game features full 3D environments although the textures look quite simplistic. The animation is basic, which means there is no 3D animation but only 2D animated frames of your character every time he hits the ball. The ball goes towards the direction you hit. I was expecting 3D animation here considering the powerful Archimedes hardware! Either way I liked the presentation of the game, especially the level design of each golf course (although repetitive). The sound is poor though, featuring only a few sound effects which is quite strange for a 16bit machine.
