STAFF REVIEW of Outlaw Golf (Xbox)

Outlaw Golf Box art Well take one of the most upper crest sports around and fill it with the "everyman" angle, what do you get? Outlaw Glof! This game is a fun, challenging, roll through the links not to be matched. A multitude of options and unlockable goodies. Great graphics and dialogue put this over the top as a must have party game.


The immediate appeal of the game is the adult nature of the charecters and content as far as the "Off" humor involved. Stripers and bikers abound in this cast of charecters. Whithin the 3 courses available you also have 8 exhibition modes, Tour Mode and of course the Outlaw Range where you can sharpen your skills and increase your charecter stats. But the most interesting feature is &; and "Beat your Caddy" which work together. As you play your composure goes up or down, play a good game and your composure goes up, but start slicing, and hitting those sand traps and your composure goes down the toilet. The games difficulty varies depending on your composure. But fear not there is a way besides golfing to improve your composure, as you par you earn "Beat Tokens" whick earn you the right to beat the snot out of your caddy, the better the beating the more your composure recovers. As much fun as all of this is, the real surprise is the golfing. Hypnotix scores big with this engine, super tight controls deliver the most realistic golfing experience on a console to date. Precise golf swings, and the option of bringing up a grid overlay once your on the green with some ungodly breaks. The fun is next to none, but the actual golf game under the humor is fantastic. Multi-player modes makes this games lasting appeal almost endless.


Visually this game just continues to shine. Charecter renderings are very well done, charecter motion is also flawless. Attention to detail on the courses is amazing. Tree's swaying in the wind, planes flying by, you will even notice a few birds occasionally visiting. It's so realistic you almost don't notice it. The "effects" are also nicelly done, water, sand, etc...Even the splash and dust as the ball makes impact are perfect. No frame rate problems or hickups noticed during my playing time. A+


Sometimes the "sounds" of a game are overlooked. This is not the case in Outlaw Golf. Dialogue is funny and well thought out. The commentary is equally funny with perfect information being offered up. 5.1 is utilized to the max, it's very cool to hear the train rolling by behind you as you tee up your shot, not to mention the cheers and jears from the gallery. Another A+.


Suggestions:
As close to perfect as you can get. Job well done.
