„World Tour Golf“ ist gar nicht so kompliziert, wie es anfangs wirkt. Die Grafik hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Das große Angebot an Parcours ist einfach toll. Ein Spiel ohne Gags, dessen Stärke aber bei der Professionalität der Ausführung liegt – und das kann verdammt viel Spaß machen.

The graphics are good without being outstanding; your player is nicely animated and the holes clearly laid out. The greens look a bit primitive in close-up and the markers showing the degree of slope are not always easy to understand. The ball drops into the hole with a suitable thud, but depiction of this is sketchy. [...] Overall, it's an excellent alternative to Leaderboard, particularly if you want representation of actual courses, and the construction set on it's own makes it worth a look.
The gameplay is very similar to Leaderboard in the method of selecting direction, strength and swing. It's difficult to master and frustrating at times, but the extra options make it interesting.

World Tour Golf is moderately compulsive to play, but the sound, graphics and animation aren't as effective as the Access simulations, nor is the ball movement as realistic. World Tour Golf deserves minor recognition for its novelty value, since there's a whole load of options (the player and course customisations are particularly impressive), and the on-screen presentation is interesting in that it provides both map and 3D views at the same time. However, the strained and unrewarding gameplay does nothing to make you want to tackle the wealth of courses available.
Wer von den Golf- Fans wollte nicht schon immer einmal bei den Masters mitspielen? Der einzige Nachteil ist, daß man bei WOLRD TOUR GOLF nichts gewinnen, sondern sogar noch Geld ausgeben muß. Die C-64 Diskette kostet nämlich ca. 45 DM, die für den IBM sogar ca. 70 DM. Dafür bekommt man aber auch eine wirklich realitätsnahe Golf-Simulation. Gegen Leaderboard ist aber nach wie vor kein Kraut gewachsen, sorry ELECTRONIC ARTS...
