Un bon jeu d'arcade qui régalera les potes réunis pour une soirée. Du grand fun en perspective.

Outlaw Golf is one of the best golf games I have ever played on the GameCube or any system for that matter. It’s fun and realistic with a wonderful cast of wild, crazy, and often naughty characters. It comes in second only to Links for realism and visuals, but as far as console golf games go, this one sets a new high bar that should last for quite some time. Don’t even waste your time with that Tiger Woods golf game. This is the one you want to be playing.

Game Over Online (Mar 24, 2003)
Golf fans rejoice! Are you sick of the normal drudgery of those serious golf games? Outlaws Golf just might be your medicine. With loose but logical controls, humorous gameplay, and more ways to stroke than, I’ll stop the punch line right there, there are kids reading. So I will end this in kid-like fashion with the help of Reading Rainbow: Outlaw Golf is a fun game. I like it and I think that you will like it too. Da, da, da!!

Outlaw Golf may be masquerading as a cartoony and loose golf game, but don’t be fooled -- this is a hardcore golf game. The less-than real characters and whacky sensibility might scare off the hardcore crowd and the casual player might be letdown by the fact it’s not as cartoony as they may have been led to believe. It’s the middle crowd that will get the most out of Outlaw Golf, with it’s complete controls, snappy swing system, and solid presentation.

(PAL version)
Verzieht eure Figur einen Schlag, wird sie unbeherrscht und sollte Frust ablassen, damit sie wieder konzentrierter spielt. Des Spielers Zorn trifft dann in der Regel den armen Caddy. Einsame Spitze ist auch der Kommentator, der als einer der wenigen in solchen Spielen tatsächlich zum Lachen animiert. Allerdings ist die Golferei kein Überspiel. Kleinere technische Mängel und die geringe Platzabwechslung verwähren den Schritt über die 80%-Marke.

Grafisch ist Outlaw Golf ganz ordentlich. Die Animationen sind lustig und die Golfplätze wurden auch hübsch in Szene gesetzt. Allerdings mangelt es an Abwechslung. Ein Golfplatz sieht aus wie der andere und die Animationen wiederholen sich dauernd. Der Sound hingegen besticht durch die witzigen Sprüche des Kommentators und die realistischen Soundeffekte. Für Gelegenheitsgolfer ist Outlaw Golf ein prima Spiel, da es viel Wert auf Humor legt und somit gute Unterhaltung bietet.

As far as golf games go, the GameCube is pretty much starved – until now. Outlaw Golf is just as good on this system as it is on the Xbox, and the segmented analog orbit that ‘Cube controllers sport make for straighter shots more often. The announcing is still hilarious, and the ball physics are decent. The camera, however, sucks the big one from time to time, and the replay feature is basically useless. Plus, there are only three courses…what’s the deal with that? I liked the unlockable stuff though, and the multiplayer modes are a lot of fun. Give it a whirl if you’re a dimple-hitter.

Worth Playing (Feb 26, 2003)
Outlaw Golf manages to be both a realistically entertaining golf game in terms of physics and an off-beat quirky experience that is rarely seen in games these days, let alone golf games. The various characters that you can control are wildly original and the unlockable goodies are definitely worth the effort it takes to get’em. If you are looking for an easy-to-play and amusing golf experience on the GameCube then Outlaw Golf is the way to go.

GameSpot (Nov 20, 2002)
Outlaw Golf is a deceptive game, because while its theme suggests fast-paced arcade-style golf, the actual gameplay really isn't like that at all.

Jeuxvideo.com (Jun 30, 2003)
Si vous faites parties des joueurs qui salivent sur les screenshots prometteurs de ce titre depuis un bon moment, vous risquez de trouver le résultat un peu juste du fait que les développeurs n'ont finalement pas osé pousser la démence suffisamment loin pour réellement surprendre. Résultat, même si l'idée est originale, on se lasse assez vite du côté burlesque pour s'apercevoir que le gameplay n'est pas non plus totalement crédible. Outlaw Golf demeure malgré tout un titre surprenant dans sa catégorie, qui pourra amuser un temps les fans de softs mutijoueur.

IGN (Dec 03, 2002)
Outlaw Golf is a pretty good game. The presentation and humor take it a long way and there is some longevity in completing the many tasks. But you can't have a golf game that doesn't offer quality golf. And the course designs just don't work here. For a game that's supposed to be extreme, the courses are incredibly tame. This isn't a bad pick-up if you want a game with humor and girls with undulating bodies, but if you're looking for a great golf game to last you a few months, this is one to walk away from.

N-Zone (Aug 19, 2003)
Lediglich drei verschiedene Golfplätze sind für ein gutes Golfspiel herzlich wenig. Einige freispielbare Plätze hätten wirklich drin sein müssen. Die flippigen Spieler und die spaßigen Kommentare werten das Spiel auf, stellen aber dauerhaft nicht zufrieden.

GameSpy (Nov 22, 2002)
Outlaw Golf has some interesting concepts and is highly suggestive, but it falls flat on its face as a golf video game. The swing mechanism is far too sensitive and is only made worse by the composure system, and putting will infuriate the most patient of players. It's a decent rental if only for the moderate shock value, but once the humor runs cold you're left with a golf game that simply isn't any fun to play. Chip this one into the water hazard and forget about it.

Nintendo Life (Dec 21, 2009)
Although the premise wears thin fast, Outlaw Golf is still a passable controller-based golf game with a unique spin on the subject matter. While the poor humour may not do enough to encourage repeat play, Outlaw Golf does reward you for your time served as the game features a large number of unlockable characters and courses. If nothing else, the non-traditional course layouts are worth giving the game a rental. The general rule of thumb with all sports games is that newer is better, but a game like Outlaw Golf is still worth checking out by those looking for something quirky and different, as well as those who cannot play at a snooty golf club on account of the "no gimp mask" rule.

Adding insult to injury, poor play results in a decreased "composure", making the game even harder! You can recoup composure by beating up your caddy, and this goofy sequence employs a standard meter that should have been used to swing your club! Other annoyances include poor course design and lengthy pauses in the action. I normally enjoy whimsical sports games, but Outlaw Golf really turned me off.
