To appreciate links to the full you need preferably a 386, a hard disk, sound support, and some extended memory - if you have them, it easily becomes a match for PGA Tour Golf. Even if you don't meet these requirements, Links is still one hell of a golf simulator.

Power Play
Na endlich! Leader Board hat seinen Meister gefunden. Das Konkurrenzprodukt "PGA Tour Golf" hat zwar attraktivere Spielmodi für Solisten zu bieten, aber das eigentliche Schlagen und Putten (also Eure Hauptbeschäftigung beim Golfspielen) gefällt mir bei Links klar besser. Die Steuerung ist prinzipiell unkompliziert und einfach zu durchschauen, die bewährten drei Schwierigkeitsgrade sorgen dafür, daß Anfänger wie Profis bedient werden. Wer ab und zu einen Kumpel zur Hand hat und über das entsprechende High-End-Equipment verfügt, der kommt an Links nicht vorbei. Die tolle Geräuschkulisse rundet dieses Klassegolf stilvoll ab.
