Description

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds is the continuation of the Hot Shots series. The classic game modes are still present: VS Mode, Training Mode, Tournament Mode, Stroke Mode, Match Play Mode, as well as the ability to play online against individual opponents in a 50-person tournament or in an 8-person match.

There are 15 playable characters as well as 6 different caddies to choose from with the ability to customize them with over 300 different clothing and items, some of which can be unlocked during the game as well as the ability to change their playing style as well.

There is also a revamped swing mechanic, whereas this version the game focuses more on a relaxed view of the swing and doesn't use power meters, than rather rely on varying factors such as weather and club selection. However, the player can also choose to revert to the original scheme if they choose.
