Golfing games in the past have had so little to do with the popular sport that takes place on the greens and fairways all across the world. Anyone who has thrown a golf club down in anger will tell you that accurately striking a small white ball with a thin metal stick is a little more difficult than pressing a joypad button three times in succession. Gremlin have finally cracked it by implementing a new control system that allows the club to be swung using an analog stick. It works a treat and actually feels as if you are swinging through that ball. If Actua Golf was a Par and Actua Golf 2 a Birdie, then Actua Golf 3 is definitely an Eagle.
No doubt work has been started on number four, but we’ve just endured Lethal Weapon Bore (sorry, 4) so maybe the omens aren’t so good! Should you part with the readies for Actua Golf 3? Just to complicate matters unnecessarily, perhaps not if you’ve got number two, but bare in mind there’s an superb new control mechanism and stacks of options, tournaments and other fun-lovin’ distractions to keep you away from the real thing for weeks. Oh, and Lee Westwood has slapped his mug on the box… good, eh?

Actua Golf 3 est à la hauteur de la série, c'est-à-dire passable. Très axé sur la simulation, le jeu propose toutes les options vitales à un jeu de golf. Hélas, les zooms et les rotations de caméra sont saccadés. De plus, quand on arrive sur le green, la visibilité est très réduite. On ne voit pas bien le trou... Bref, les fondus de golf n'y trouveront pas leur compte...

Er zijn natuurlijk weer de gebruikelijke toernooien en weet ik veel wat nog meer, maar in grafisch opzicht kent deze versie neit al te veel hoogstandjes wanneer je 'm vergelijkt met de meest recente golfspellen van de concurrentie. Er zijn een zooitje nieuwe spelers en golfbanen, maar echt spectaculair wil het allemaal niet worden. Tel daarbij op de soms onrealistische snelheid van de bal en je komt al snel tot de conclusie dat Actua Golf 3 niet meer is dan een matige opvolger van de voorgaande twee games. Alleen geschikt voor de ware liefhebbers, zeg ik dan ook maar.
ACTUA GOLF 3 est donc à réserver uniquement aux férus de Golf. Gremlin annonce fièrement sur la boite du jeu : "la simulation de golf sur Playstation la plus passionnante et la plus complète du moment". C'est peut-être vrai, mais vu le nombre de jeux de golf sur la PSX... Au pays des aveugles...

Even in the realm of golf variety counts. It may be twatting a ball around with a stick, but doing it on eight courses in twelve different ways, from strokeplay to pro tour counts for something. So for the golf nut it's like walking into your favourite shop and seeing a sign saying 'shop-lifters welcome', and for everyone else it's a top-notch buffet bar of a game.
