C'est le premier jeu de golf sur GBA et il est plutôt pas mal. Le prochain sera sûrement meilleur, mais en attendant...

People frequently refer to Henry Rollins as a jackass. While I can’t argue with them, I can say this golf offering from Konami is the perfect fit for the traveling golf nut.

Henry Rollins frequently refers to pro golfing as a lame profession. While I can't argue that, sometimes you get the urge to hit some balls. If golf's your appetite, you'll dig on Final Round. If you want a decent GBA cart in general, though, there are much wiser choices.

While it's true that Final Round is currently the only golf game on the Game Boy Advance, the game is worth checking out regardless. It may prove to be too easy for the more experienced player, but with 90 holes of golf and a good multiplayer game, Final Round makes for a more-than-acceptable portable golf game.

Game Over Online
ESPN Final Round Golf 2002 is an adequate portable game of links. It offers strong replay value but its simplistic gameplay and lacklustre visuals will likely leave hardcore golfers wanting more. If you can tolerate the flaws though, you just might enjoy a few rounds of golf.

IGN
For a first golf outing on the Game Boy Advance, Konami has put together a good package...but there are flaws and omissions in the design that will stick out like a thumb to folks that really get into their video links titles. If you keep in mind that you're not getting a truly realistic representation of the sport, you'll probably enjoy yourself on the portable courses.

Vous pouvez sauvegarder à n’importe quelle phase de jeu, ce qui est idéal pour se faire quelques trous dans le métro. Les graphismes sont honnêtes, mais les passages en mode 7 auraient mérités d’être un peu plus soignés. La console est capable de bien mieux. Les conditions climatiques (vent, pluie, etc.), ainsi que les réactions physiques de la balle, sont bien gérées par la console. La musique n’est pas présente durant les parties, ce qui n’est pas plus mal. Les bruitages ne sont pas déplaisants, mais ils se font trop rares. La durée de vie est plutôt bonne car il faut débloquer les cinq parcours en solo (composés chacun de 18 trous), pour y jouer ensuite à plusieurs. Au final, le jeu est moins attachant que le hit de Nintendo : les persos ne sont pas très charismatiques et il n’y a pas de mode Carrière.

All Game Guide
Putting is also ridiculously easy, a simple matter of aiming the cursor over the hole and setting the power. Most shots will go straight in no matter how far away from the cup you are -- as long as there is enough power, the layout of the green doesn't seem to matter. Manage to hole-in below par and your golfer will appear in a cut-scene raising his fist in excitement. ESPN Final Round Golf 2002 has the makings of a good game, but the hardest part of a golf title is in striking a balance between realism and fun. Without a strong physics model to build upon, the game will never be able to rise above amateur status.

Mania
ESPN FINAL ROUND GOLF 2002 will satisfy any casual gamers' craving for golf, but hardcore players will have to wait longer to get a good golf experience on the Game Boy Advance.
