Neo Turf Masters, le jeu parfait ? Franchement, on peut toujours chipoter. Effectivement, vous n’aurez de cesse de pester contre ce maudit mât qui repoussera toute tentative (ou presque) directe en dehors du green (défaut déjà présent sur la version salon/arcade). Du coup, il est quasi impossible de réussir le hole in one (trou réussi en un seul coup) ! Ceci dit, le fun, substance inquantifiable, s’avère être l’essence principale de ce jeu. Il contrebalance donc aisément ces défauts mineurs.
If you can still get hold of a copy of Turf Masters, for heaven's sake do it now. It's my favourite game on the console at the moment, and if you can persuade a friend to pick up a copy at the same time, the experience will be all the more rewarding.
All things said, this is a game that's going to take some time to beat, so it's great value for money, considering that it's almost half the price of it's home console cousins, this is outstanding value for money and a blistering game to boot.
The Video Game Critic
The contours of the green are well defined and easy to read. The game moves along quickly, so you can squeeze in 18 holes in about a half an hour. What also helps to speed up the game is the fact that you can't exceed four shots over par. Turf Masters is a terrific little golf game that's easy to play and a lot of fun.
The one real hassle about Neo Turf Masters is that the link cable is required for two-player matches. The two-player mode could have played on one unit just as easily. But beyond that oversight, it's great fun for anyone that enjoys arcade-style golf games.
Neo Turf Masters was definitely designed as a down-and-dirty game of golf ¿ something that has the strategy of the sport, but can be played without any tutorial. The game features three different courses with varying difficulty depending on the location: Fuji, Japan; Arizona, USA; and Baden, Germany. Do your math, and that's 54 holes in the game. Not too shabby.
