Description

Hot Shots Golf 2 is the sequel to PlayStation game Hot Shots Golf. While the sequel is in many respects similar to the original, it brings some improvements to the series.

Like the original there are several characters to choose from, and many more to be unlocked throughout the game. Each character has his or her own strengths and weaknesses, making character selection more than just choosing a skin. The character models themselves are of a more realistic style this time around, as opposed to the big-head anime style of the original Hot Shots Golf.

There are several different modes of play, from standards like stroke, match, and tournament, to the 'vs. mode', through which new characters can be unlocked. Gameplay itself is a version of the standard 'tap-tap-tap' variety used by the majority of golf games.

Trivia

Version differences

Sweet Tooth (from the Twisted Metal series) is included in the US and European versions as an unlockable character. Also available in the US and European versions are Sir Dan (from the MediEvil series) and an odd choice, since the following character wasn't made by Sony: Gex (from Crystal Dynamics' Gex series).
