PURE golf with no frills, fluff, or flab.
My brother and I played single-cart multiplayer nearly all night last night. We only had 3 courses to choose from, but the gameplay never felt stale. Especially when we were on the tougher course with lots of bunkers and only little fairway. Sending distracting pictochats during your opponents swing is a great addition to the game, and can give the otherwise highly competitive proceedings an air of humor and creativity.
9 out of 10 for pure fun and gameplay.
10 out of 10 for innovation and execution.
