I like the swing system, it is similair to the one in tiger woods but inverted (you drag down to set power) which more closely matches a real golf swing.

I tried the Championship mode which starts with a really nice world map with various courses and challenges marked as touchable dots. Playing a few holes netted me some "XP" which enabled me to upgrade some abilities similair to Let's Golf.

Pretty amazing to have a game like this on a phone, comparing this to Tiger Woods, it really struck me how far games have come on the iPhone.

Edit: Oh and there is gyroscope support for shot aiming.

Have not had a chance to play online yet, hopefully that will also be...decent.

Put simply, this is Gameloft doing what they do best: mediocrity polished to a fine shine. No disappointments so long as no more than that is expected.

It does look good for sure, but I dunno about this one. Especially if an iPad version is in the works, I'll wait it out.

Top 3: Dead Rising, Infinity Blade, Dungeon Hunter 2,

I will probably get it. Full force will probably work on this game to upscale it to full screen. Gameloft usually doesn't enhance their games much when they have an iPad version.

At the end of the video, it says coming to the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Knowing Gameloft, an iPad version is just around the corner.

i'm waiting for sure. I don't care if it's the same exact game - I want iPad native res, I can't stand playing iphone games at 2x

I think it's wack how greedy the bigger developers are. Universal compatibility should be a given, nowadays. It's just more App Store clutter, on the off-chance that anyone is brainless enough to buy the same game twice.
