Info (Sep, 1989)
There are three courses included (and additional course disks are coming), one of which is made up of the Golden Bear's choices of the best holes from tournament courses. In fact, a picture of Jack appears at the star of each hole and he offers advice on how to play it. I only wish there were some way to turn him off; the advice is good, but it slows down the play considerably. The best choice yet for people who like to play real golf.
Zero (Jun, 1990)
Jack Niklaus' Greatest 18 Holes is full of hassle regarding the speed at which the proceedings chug along (like the real ting really) but for all that, it still really is totally brilliant. Especially playing against another person.
The ideal game for the golf enthusiast, plays well, looks good, performs well. Thumbs up Accolade.
Commodore User (Sep, 1989)
Compared to the likes of World Class Leaderboard Accolade's version acquits itself impressively.
The game plays very much like Accolade's Mean 18 with the addition of some digitised pictures of Jack Nicklaus and comments from him on the holes. Good use has been made of the Amiga's graphic capabilities and this makes the game very interesting to play. Whether or not you wish to buy a similar version of a game you already have, is up to you, but if you do not have Mean 18 I would highly recommend this version.
Amiga Format (Oct, 1989)
The slow speed of play is annoying but not terminally so: just chill out, relax and take your time playing. The three courses are challenging and dangerous and the opponents provide good competition. It is a game you will be playing for years to come: s long as the old back injury does not flare up again...
Die Plätze sehen bei Jack Nicklaus wirklich besonders hübsch aus und weisen viele Details auf, leider wird der Bildaufbau dadurch ausgesprochen langsam. Die schönste Version zum Anschauen läuft auf dem Amiga, am besten, weil am flüssigsten, spielt sich‘s auf einem schnellen PC (auf langsamen besser gar nicht...). Geeignet für Leute, die viel Kurse und Gegner haben wollen, aber keinen großen Wert auf schnelles Tempo legen.
Amiga Games (Dec, 1993)
Gute Grafiken und saubere Animationen sind inzwischen schon Grundbestandteil für eine richtige Golfsimulation. So lassen sich auch hier und da schon ein paar Mängel nachweisen. Die Soundeffekte hätte Accolade sicherlich noch etwas besser rausputzen können, denn diese sind leider nur mittelmäßig. Die Steuerung mit der Maus ist gut ausgetüftelt und einfach zu handhaben. Viele Computergegner und die Möglichkeit, gegen mehrere Mitspieler anzutreten, lassen Spannung und Motivation um einiges ansteigen. Auch die große Platzauswahl trägt enorm zum Spielspaß bei. Für die richtigen Golfer unter Euch kann ich bei diesem Preis nur sagen: sofort zuschlagen.
Your Amiga (Oct, 1989)
There is nothing really wrong with Jack Nicklaus, it is perfectly playable and competently programmed, if somewhat slow when it comes to waiting for the hole to be drawn. I just found the whole affair to be rather bland. Certainly, if you already own Leaderboard, there is very little new on offer here and I must admit to finding the rival version considerably more addictive.
Amiga Action (Oct, 1989)
Although Leaderboard still reins supreme among the golf simulations, J.N's Greatest Eighteen is still a very playable game. It doesn't quite have the finesse of the Access original, and its screen update is ever so slow, but everything a budding golfer needs is there. Worth a look.
Despite a flattened head, the digitised Jack shown in-between holes is an attractive piece of presentation. The same can't be said for the game itself; graphic definition and animation are merely that of a carefully designed C64 or Amstrad game and the scenery graphics are drawn slowly and tiringly. Sound highlight is the atmospheric polite applause from the crowd.
Zusammenfassend kann man somit sagen, daß sich auf dem Amiga gegenüber dem Originalprogramm nichts geändert hat; und das bedeutet daß in der Bewertung Abstriche gemacht werden müssen, denn hier wäre zweifelsohne mehr drin gewesen.
Power Play (Jan, 1990)
Da nützen auch die passable Grafik und die vielen Spiel-Modi nichts; "Jack Nicklaus Golf" ist auf dem Amiga so langsam, daß selbst der geduldigste Caddy eindöst.
