Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds


Golf can be a very dull game. Out of all the sports titles available on consoles, or even all the real-world sports broadcast on television, to say that Golf is a much slower-paced game than others is an absolute fact. When it comes to portraying golf...

Despite the shortcomings in sound design and number of courses, Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds delivers a great deal of fun on the golf course with its sparkling visual presentation and instantly playable control and gameplay style. With virtually no...

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games


If you've played the series before, Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds will give you a strong feeling of familiarity. Not a whole lot has changed, dating back to the PSX days and Out of Bounds continues that tradition. This was a golden opportunity for Clap...

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds


And now it's time for a little confession: I've never played a golf game. Not only have I never played a golf game on the computer or console, I've actually never “hit the links” or whatever the kiddies are saying these days. I don't know the lingo, I...

A remarkably fun game of golf, from the perspective of someone who never thought they’d actually enjoy this sort of thing.

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds


As far as golf simulation goes, this game pretty much hits the mark. Putting is pretty difficult, and the wind seems to pretty much own your shots even if it is only going 0.5 mph, but aside from that it's a pretty solid title. If you're a fan of...

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds


It was inevitable, and now it's finally reality, the newest entry in the Hot Shots Golf franchise has arrived, and this time it's on the PlayStation 3. Thanks to its depth of play, cartoon-cute characters and sharp sense of humor, Hot Shots Golf has...

Great new shot system is extremely learnable and easy to pick up ; Decent, though not great, depth

No motion control option

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds is loads of fun and an ideal sports game for your friends who don't typically like sports games.

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds


The time-tested and player approved Hot Shots Golf series debuts on PlayStation3 as Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds. Practically a no-brainer... if you're into the whole 'brevity' thing anyway...

For a solid 10 years, the Hot Shots Golf series has been duly acclaimed as the golf simulation for the masses; a surprisingly deep and robust simulator that happens to be accessible -- and quite a lot of fun -- to those of lesser skill or little...

Destructoid Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds- PS3


I believe it was famed golf legend Happy Gilmore that once said that "Golf requires goofy pants and a fat ass." He's right. Golf also requires skill, psychical ability, golf clubs and e...

Overcoming Handicaps


Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds may well be the best golf game ever made. Find out why inside.

At first, it felt a little forced. After all, what good are the points if they don't actually go toward something? What initially felt like a vestigial feature on par with high scores in action games finally clicked once I'd learned about the loyalty...

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds Game Review - Playstation 3


What greatly add to this version of the challenge mode are the extra touches that pull it all together. After completing challenges, you'll see the loyalty meter from the PSP Hot Shots Golf games, but is a lot more rewarding here. As you play more with...

You need solid current-gen golf action

You prefer real golf to the virtual links

Outside of the challenge mode, Out of Bounds offers stroke and practice mode to play by yourself, stroke and match play for up to four players total, and the online mode, which may be the other big mode you will spend time with. Whether it's a direct...
