Das Programm reizt förmlich dazu, die erbrachte Leistung zu wiederholen oder gar noch zu verbessern. Besonders viel Freude wird man an GREAT GOLF dann haben, wenn man es im Turniermodus mit mehreren Teilnehmern spielt. Doch auch für "Singles" ist es sicher bestens geeignet - Spannung, Abwechslung und last but not least eine hohe Motivation sind auch hier gewährleistet. Für mich eine Sportsimulation, die rundum gelungen und ihren Preis auf jeden Fall wert ist!

Les graphismes sont excellents. Il y a toujours moyen d'améliorer sa technique et on progresse assez rapidement. Great Golf n'a rien à envier à ses concurrents sur micro. Une réussite.

The little extras all add up to make a pretty good game of golf, certainly one which should please the armchair Ballesteroses out there. Gamers whose interests lie closer to the mainstream should consider whether this sort of game is going to hold their interest long enough to warrant £23 expenditure.

In conclusion, I have to say that Great Golf is definitely the third best game in the great series and stands way above the others below it. The three games that are actually good in this series are generally pretty good in most respects, and this places itself nicely in third. Sega tried to market this for Father's Day when the Master System was still on the market, but I'm not sure how well it did, though it's nice they tried to get adults interested into the system, because Nintendo never really did that. Some were familiar with the system and a few games, but nothing was really made "for adults" so to speak other than a few unlicensed porno titles later on. Why in the world did I mention this? Who knows, but to get back on track, if you're looking for a golf title to add to your SMS collection, since there are several, start from one of the first and have some fun.

Great Golf fällt im Vergleich zu „Great Basketball“ und „Great Volleyball“ deutlich ab. Man hat zwar alle wichtigen Spielfaktoren beachtet und kann den Ball theoretisch an jeden beliebigen Ort schlagen, richtiges Golf-Feeling will aber nicht aufkommen. Schade drum, denn die Spielerführung ist wieder einmal hervorragend. Auch bei der 3D-Grafik kann man kaum meckern. Sie ist farbenprächtig und gut gezeichnet, wenn auch etwas langsam. Warum nur ein Kurs parat steht, ist allerdings unverständlich. Irgendwann kennt man die 18 Löcher in- und auswendig.

Un gioco di golf che probabilmente non piacerà a nessuno, neanche ai veri appassionati di questo sport. Da provare solo se avete la possibilità di giocarlo con altri 3 amici.

The golfer's swing animation is smooth, but it looks to me like he completely misses the ball. The ball flies off the tee anyway, and moves through the air in a slow, floaty manner. I found it far too easy to overswing and hit the ball out of bounds. An exceptional shot will reward you with a brief indecipherable voice sample that sounds like a zipper being pulled up and down very fast. All in all, I'm sure Great Golf was pretty impressive for its day, but it hasn't aged well, mainly due to its slow pacing.
