Product Description:

Publisher Eidos Is Laboring Mightily To Give Swingerz Golf A Rough-hewn Patina Even Plastering The Box With A Pic Of An Unkempt Biker.

Outstanding game! This is the kind of game that makes video golf fun. If you are looking for a golfing game that goes deep into the physics of golf, where the slightest error in judgement or timing sends your ball into the bottom of a lake, this is not for you. Lots of cool characters with their own attributes, make the game fun and easy to control. Although I wouldn't really trust the caddies advice. The memorable moments feature is nice too. Your best shots are saved so you can review them later. Lots of fun, with a lot of frustration as well. Nothing worse than missing an eagle by an inch. Highly recommend.

Head FORE the links in this outrageously hilarious game. While it takes a while for players to under stand and get used to shots, this games comedy levels for kids are awsome, "NO WAY!" says Yoshiki Kitamura (Yo-She-Key Key-Tah-Moo-Rah)when he makes a bad score, or Yuka when she repeatedly says "Here goes nothing!"

I like this game. While not the most serious golf game it is very challenging without being impossible. The graphics are nice and it is quick. By that I mean it doesn't take time to load between each hole. You can play a round in 15 to 20 minutes. I have also played Outlaw Golf and I find that Swingerz is much faster and the options it gives you to view your upcoming shot are better. While it doesn't give you the option to beat up your caddie like Outlaw, I still liked it better because beating up your caddie is not what I was looking for. I was looking for a golf game that was quick and easy to pick up. This is a game that will be appropriate for kids and fun for adults too. By the way, I am in my late 20's.
