It's pretty unfortunate that here in 2013 we are playing a golf game built on an engine that is quite reminiscent of links pc games from 1997.

I guess I shouldn't expect much though, as golf is one game genre that has yet to really get a killer video game on any platform.

Don't get me wrong, I am a huge Hot shots golf fan and I dig let's golf 3, but TW golf on the ps3/360 fell short of what it could have been (the games were o.k, but when one looks at MLB The Show, that is the definitive baseball game. Golf just never got one).

I hope someone can create a killer golf game someday.

As for this game, I am just not inspired to play a game within photos of golf courses.
The least they could have done is given the golfer and ball some shadows so they would at least feel like gravity has an effect (this is an ipad 4 I'm using).

Pretty pathetic.
