Sensible Golf is a 2D golf simulation.
Having been quite successful with their cute action soccer game Sensible Soccer, Sensible Software decided that the concept of "No fuss, just fun" could be applied to other sports, too. They chose golf.
Sensible Golf is not an accurate simulation of golf, but an action adaptation of the sport streamlined for quick and easy gameplay. Consequently, complications such as wind and terrain heights are not featured, although the green has little arrows indicating the slopes. Apart from that, the player's only concerns are the water and sand hazards, and the distance to the hole. As a result, Sensible Soccer is instead a practice in target shooting, rather than a golf game.
Striking involves only two action: Aiming the pointer in the desired direction, and pressing the action button three times. The game uses the well-known three-click-control, with which you set power and swerve of the strike. The computer automatically suggests a proper club, but the player may change it manually. A pop-up map helps one find their bearing.
The courses are fictional, composed from a pool of holes which often appear in multiple courses, sometimes with minor variations. Play modes include single 18-hole rounds, a complete season and a tournament. Up to 72 human players may participate in the latter.
Those cute little guys from Sensible Software's games seem to be able to do just about anything. They fought wars (Cannon Fodder), played soccer (Sensible Soccer series) and this time it's time for golf! And it features the largest multiplayer option I've ever seen: 72!
Playing golf is easy. Being a golf professional isn't. This game is hard and with literally hundreds of golf courses you will have a lot to play. The graphics are cute (as usual), the sound is average and the gameplay is quite good. Fun, just as expected from Sensible Software.
A fun, cute little golf game from the maker of Cannon Fodder 2 and Sensible World of Soccer, Sensible Golf offers the same fast and furious action as in those games, only this time the controls are much less intuitive and the game itself not as good. Still, with Sensible's hallmark tiny players and colorful graphics, it's a fun diversion from the real thing. Good for when you're cursing Links or Jack Nicklaus games for not giving you that coveted birdie.
