Tja, liebe Leute bei Electronic Arts, sowas passiert, wenn man Perfektion zu steigern versucht. Unser Referenz-Sportspiel PGA Tour Golf III ist durch das Upgrade PGA Tour 96 eindeutig verschlimmbessert worden. Es gehört schon ein gewisses Maß an Dreistigkeit dazu, die ehemals acht verschiedenen Kurse auf drei zusammenschrumpfen zu lassen und das Ganze unter den Deckmäntelchen "Innovation" für bares Geld an den Verbraucher verkaufen zu wollen. Auch die verschiedenen Schnittarten des Balles machten eine wundersame Schrumpfkur: Konnte man bei der Vorversion Ober- und Unterschnitt sowie Hook und Slice in jeweils 9 Abstufungen äußerst präzise justieren, sind ganze zwei geblieben - warum, Electronic Arts? Um es kurz zu machen: Laßt Euch nicht verschaukeln, und besorgt Euch - wenn Ihr das beste Golfspiel wollt - PGA Tour Golf III. Wer das schon hat, braucht kein anderes.

Genesis golfers should stick with PGA Tour III, the pinnacle of the series. If you're dying for a fresh round of golf, check out the masterful Playstation game.
The Video Game Critic
In addition to having to wait forever for the screens to be drawn, once you hit the ball you don't get even a separate view of where it lands. And God forbid if your ball goes behind a tree - you may as well be behind a brick wall. The scenery looks nice from a distance, but up close the hills look like giant triangles and the trees look horribly pixilated. There are some extra modes and saved stats, but these bells and whistles mean little when the game itself is so poor. Better hold onto those old PGA games - you're going to need them.
