P2W at it's worst

If you have lots of cash sitting around then you might like this game. If you don't then you won't even be able to get out of the starting gate.
Disclaimer: The following article is the sole opinion of its author and does not represent MMORPG.com in its thoughts or opinions. This is not an official MMORPG.com editorial article.

My #1 issue with this game is it's very inconsistent game play.  One time a 3mph wind blowing from left to right doesn't affect the ball in the least. The next time you're blown ten yards off line into the rough. Greens that should have a slight break, break more than they should. Or don't break at all!

 

As you "level up" you're given some better clubs to play with but after those freebees you're left with all future "upgrades" having to come from the item mall. The default clubs aren't awful but they offer nearly no control. The default balls you're give are just three, and then some unlimited balls that are the equivalent of range balls. Again the default balls aren't awful, but you can't put any spin on them so again, very little control. 

 

The game is good about letting you get a feel for swinging the club before you actually go play a round. But beyond a tutorial, you get no practice putting! One of the most important aspects of playing golf and a tutorial is apparently enough to give you a "feel" on how to put.

 

The cash shop is full of items to "improve your score", like hit meters both for putting and fairway play that let you accurately judge how hard to hit the ball. Balls with improved flight characteristics and spin control that let you hit farther and land softer. Clubs that slow down the swing speed so you can hit that "perfect" shot more consistently. If you try to play with the default clubs and balls you are at a serious disadvantage vs anyone who has spent even just a little on upgrades. And the upgrades are fairly expensive, with $50 being the recommended cost of getting enough upgrades just to start your "carrier" and have enough "improvements" in your game that you're able to play in a tournament.

 

On the plus side, being a browser based flash game it isn't going to require a whole lot of memory or cpu power to play. The controls are exactly what you would expect if you've ever played a pc golf game before.

 

Over all I rate it a 3 out of 10. If you have more money sitting around than you know what to do with, you might find this game entertaining. If you don't steer clear.
