Gaming Age (Jun 02, 2008)
Not many reviewers seem to factor the price of a game into their scores, but I certainly do. I'd consider $29.99 MSRP to be the magic price point for most portable titles, and Sony made the right decision to price Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 at exactly that. Relative to the already 40+ hours of portable golfing greatness the game has provided me with, it is a bargain. It comes without saying that fans of the series and dedicated PSP fans should grab a copy and tee off ASAP. Those who have never had much of an interest in traditional golf games should at the very least give the PlayStation Store demos a try, you may be surprised.

Game Chronicles (Jul 09, 2008)
Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is an almost flawless sequel to a nearly perfect original. The designers wisely chose not to fix what wasn’t broke, and instead focused on just offering more new content and presenting it all in a fiendishly addictive fashion that will have you playing your PSP at totally inappropriate times and places. I almost never play my PSP at home, but I found myself playing Open Tee 2 while watching TV. If you want to go to the extreme side of irony, try playing Open Tee 2 while sitting in a real golf cart waiting for your turn to tee off.

Maxim Magazine (May 27, 2008)
We're recommending buy. The game is priced at $29.99, 10 dollars less than the typical PSP title.

Clap Hanz hat es wieder geschafft mich zu fesseln. Bereits mit Everybody's Golf 1 hatte ich meine Freude, und in Teil Zwei macht es ebenso einfach nur Spaß, immer mehr Charaktere und Items mit jedem Match freizuschalten. Nun gibt es zusätzlich einen echten Online-Modus, bei dem man auch gegen internationale Gegner antreten kann, und da es nun noch mehr Items und Charaktere gibt, steht einem auch in Sachen Vielfalt nichts mehr im Weg. Selbst wenn die Grafik der japanischen Entwickler etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig ist, so fügt sie sich doch ohne weiteres ins Gesamtbild ein. Für alle PSP Besitzer lautet mein Rat: Kaufen! Wer Everybody's Golf nicht auf seiner PSP gespielt hat, hat das Ding noch nicht richtig ausgelebt.

Pocket Gamer UK (Jun 04, 2008)
Highly polished, finely-tuned, practically flawless - and that's just the golf balls. Open Tee 2 delivers the best portable golf game ever exclusively to PSP. Robust multiplayer tops a long list of reasons to pick up this hole-in-one.

Gamervision (Jun 09, 2008)
Despite a few setbacks and no huge gameplay advancements, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is exactly what a good handheld game should be. It’s good for long sessions at home or short games on the go, but once you start playing, you will not want to stop. It’s the kind of game that has you saying “one more round” over and over again, until you see that it’s way past your bedtime and wonder where the last two hours went. Even if you’re not a golf fan (because believe me, I am not), this is an easy game to get into. Also, for $30, there’s no excuse not to pick this up.

GameSpy (Jun 09, 2008)
Hot Shots' main draw has always been its accessibility. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a divot-diggin' noob, it's always been an easy game to pick up and enjoy. Open Tee 2 is no different. The more you play, the more techniques become available to help deal with the more challenging courses. The wide variety of unlockables is also a great incentive to keep playing. If you've invested a lot of time in the original you may get a feeling of deja vu, but Open Tee 2 is still a blast.

TotalPlayStation (Jun 23, 2008)
The bottom line is that this is a fantastic value for the measly $30 Sony is asking. Sure, there may be quite a bit here that any tenured fan of the series has seen and done before, but the little tweaks here and there to things like the loyalty system and leveling up characters with cards and finding the hidden accessories that add up to stat boosts and playing people online to win new equipment, all these things add up to one of the most value-packed games on the PSP. Hell, on any system, really, and that's precisely why you need to make this game part of your games collection. Let's just hope that if there's an Open Tee 3 that we see just a bit more of an update to more of the core game.

PSX Extreme (May 28, 2008)
If you loved the first PSP outing of Hot Shots Golf, then you'll love Open Tee 2. Additionally, if you've often wished you can take the PS3's Hot Shots Golf on the go with you, Open Tee 2 will certainly suit your needs, as the two games are quite similar. With the ability to go online with 16 players, a sizable Challenge mode, with a ton of things to unlock, Open Tee 2 also boasts great value, and for a handheld game that's extremely important. Yet again, we can give a round of applause for Clap Hanz. And yes, that was a pun.

PGNx Media (May 29, 2008)
Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is definitely an evolutionary sequel. It doesn’t do anything too differently than its prequel, but that’s okay since the first game was good and three years have elapsed in between the games. If you’re interested in golf games on the PSP, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is definitely the game to get.

Wonderwallweb.com (Jun 18, 2008)
If you have a PSP then this is the sort of game your handheld was made for, in fact you don’t even need to like golf to play it. Everybody’s Golf 2 is just one of those games that you can’t put down, its addictive fun and well worth anyone’s cash.

Futuregamez.net (Jul 07, 2008)
Everybody's Golf 2 isn't a true simulation of the sport, but is very entertaining and that's why we play games. Not only is there a tonne to do in single player, but plenty of multi-player modes too. Superb.

4Players.de (Jun 10, 2008)
Nein, im Grunde hat sich nicht viel getan im kurzweiligen Golf-Paradies: Die Ballphysik ist noch immer hervorragend, die Trickschläge witzig überzeichnet und die Musik entspannend bis spritzig. Dass ihr euch zwischen den Duellen und Turnieren in gerade mal einem Minispiel austoben dürft, ist allerdings schade und sechs neue Kurse klingt zunächst minimalistisch. Mehr Plätze waren allerdings auch dem erstklassigen Vorgänger nicht vergönnt. Weil Everybody's Golf 2 die Fairways beider Versionen vereint, stehen euch diesmal sogar doppelt so viele zur Verfügung. Das gleiche gilt für die insgesamt 20 liebevoll animierten Charaktere. Vielleicht hätten die Entwickler noch die vorsichtig modifizierte Schlagtechnik ihres PS3-Golfs übernehmen können, damit sich die aktuelle PSP-Version frischer anfühlt. Andererseits ist diese dank ihres enormen Umfangs dem schwachbrüstigen Konsolen-Bruder ohnehin überlegen!

GameFocus (Jun 22, 2008)
What more could you ask for from a $29.99 game? Not much. It is definitely worth a rental and it may grab your attention enough to purchase it. Golf fans will appreciate the online play which was enough to hook me.

Destructoid (Jun 16, 2008)
If you don't mind that "you've been here before" feeling, and big-headed cartoon character arcade golf action, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is great fun. There's enough new content to make it worth the asking price over the original, and the new online multiplayer modes take this one well above par.

IGN (May 22, 2008)
The complaints I just mentioned shouldn't scare anyone away from this title. Like the Hot Shots before it, Open Tee 2 delivers a solid, easy-to-use golf engine that gets mixed with wacky characters and costumes. The amount of unlockables is insane, the load times are vastly improved, and there are 24 characters to master. However, the failed Wi-Fi matches and ho-hum online options hurt, and I think the review score reflects that. Hot Shots: Open Tee 2 feels like well-worn territory at times, but it's a ton of fun and a ton of content that comes with a miniscule $29.99 price tag. Pick it up.

GameZone (Jun 16, 2008)
The game's sound is a light, wispy almost-subtle sound selection. The caddy's that are available have several canned phrases that can sometimes be humorous and while playing against others, you can use the hackling phrases to shake your opponent. This is a good time to use the well-worn phrase "less is more." The game simply does not need a lot of sound to be enjoyable and the developers learned this long ago.

Kombo.com (Jun 17, 2008)
Open Tee 2 is another welcome addition to the Hot Shots family. It sticks to the, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality and adds the large and impressive online multiplayer to the handheld version that is shining new feature. Open Tee 2 isn't a hole-in-one but it is pretty darn close.
83
Game Revolution (Jun 16, 2008)
Open Tee 2 is a pint-sized yet full-sized update to the Hot Shots Golf series that challenges its PS3 brother and ultimately wins. It has all the features of Out of Bounds but replaces the horrible Mii-like online characters with a slew of customizable parts and allows you to permanently upgrade the vital stats of the entire character roster. If you have always wanted to pick up a golf title, whether you are on the go or not, step up to the tee and give this a shot.

Extreme Gamer (Jun 16, 2008)
It is a no-brainer to recommend Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 to anyone looking for a quality version of the console game ported down to the handheld. Hot Shots Golf is very loveable and easy to get into; really the series hasn’t changed much over the ten years since it has been hitting birdies. While this means long times fans might still have some love for the old faithful, gamers who have shunned the game won’t find any reason to give the long running series a mulligan. Overall, the price is right, the game has improved, and now you can try your luck online! What else would you want in a sequel? Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is definitely a pleasant surprise that should be a must for any golfing fan with a PSP.

Gamer 2.0 (Jun 23, 2008)
Despite not much in the way of new, groundbreaking stuff in Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2, it certainly leans more towards the good side of the more of the same sequel fence. New dress-up options, the new online mode, and the standard new courses and characters should be enough for most Open Tee owners to upgrade to the sequel. New PSP owners that never touched the first game should definitely put up the $10 extra for more of everything that the first had. Now that we’ve gotten two Hot Shots Golf games out within a year’s time, it’s time for Clap Hanz to push the series forward in all of its offerings before thinking about coming back with just more of the same.

It's a quick loader, too, with minimum turnaround between holes. Having been on sale for a while, the multiplayer lobbies were disappointingly dead when I popped my head in now and again, which is a shame since sixteen-player online tournaments are one of the more significant improvements, but nevertheless, the single-player provides more than enough golf-based entertainment to please those who like their sport with a little bit of cheer.

Operation Sports (May 24, 2008)
Hot Shots Open Tee 2 feels very similar to just about any other Hot Shots game, but that's not a bad thing at all, assuming you're already a fan. The gameplay is very fun yet challenging, some of the quirky characters and courses are still enjoyable, and the varying game modes always offer you something different. Online play is a bit stripped down but it plays as good as it would offline. Open Tee 2 should appeal to sim golfers and casual fans alike as it's not just an "arcadey" kid's game but it's also a great way for golf newcomers to be introduced to the game in a way that's accessible and enjoyable.

TotalVideoGames (TVG) (May 19, 2008)
Everybody's Golf 2 is a pure joy. There are very few golf games out there that make a good shot feel so rewarding, and probably none that are so accessible to hardcore gamers, casual gamers, and golf fans alike. While it may be very similar to its predecessor in format and gameplay, there's still enough fresh content here to warrant a purchase of this sequel if you already have the first game.

VicioJuegos.com (Jun 26, 2008)
Everybody´s Golf 2 sigue en su línea ofreciéndonos una perspectiva arcade y muy entretenida de este elitista deporte. La jugabilidad sigue prácticamente intacta con respecto a las entregas anteriores, con un control sencillo, intuitivo y muy efectivo. A esto hay que sumarle el gran abanico de modos de juego para un sólo jugador y también las opciones online, que aunque ahora no funcionen muy bien, seguro que no tardarán en hacerlo. La cantidad de horas de juego que ofrece gracias tanto a los modos de juego como a la inmensa cantidad de objetos desbloqueables es muy grande, así que tendremos juego para rato. Todo esto, combinado con un buen apartado técnico, hace de esta nueva entrega un gran candidato para los que buscan diversión directa y sin complicaciones. Además, el juego llegará a precio reducido (29,99 euros), así que si os gusto la primera entrega ya estáis tardando en ir a la tienda en busca de esta segunda parte.

Jeuxvideo.com (May 30, 2008)
Reprenant un concept qui a fait ses preuves depuis belle lurette, Everybody's Golf 2 parvient pourtant à nous émerveiller encore par sa fraîcheur et sa jouabilité. Plus complexe que son design manga coloré ne le laisse supposer, cette simulation de golf séduira tout autant le joueur exigeant que le néophyte. Et si sa durée de vie était déjà énorme en solo, elle devient désormais phénoménale grâce à l'ajout d'un mode online très complet.

Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is a fine sequel, featuring the great gameplay of its predecessors along with fun new features. With a $29.99 price tag, it’s an easy buy for anyone who has fallen in love with the Hot Shots Golf series.

GamesRadar (Jun 10, 2008)
It might be a bit short on thrills and innovation, but when it comes to a refined, endlessly replayable portable experience – regardless of genre – Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is one of the best picks on the PSP. Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to get back to an epic round of skee-golf.
80
GamePro (US) (May 27, 2008)
Ultimately, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is still going to appeal to people who like golf games. To get the most out of it, you really should know the difference between a PW and a 7I. This is a not a casual gaming romp down the fairway, but hitting that eagle feels pretty good, once you know what that means.

GameDaily (Jun 02, 2008)
If you don't care for arcade-style golf, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 won't change your mind. However, if you can't get enough of it and have $30 in your wallet, it's worth your time. The Challenge Mode and online-supported features give you plenty to do, and the gameplay and graphics remain par for the course. Hit the links and have a ball, a golf ball, that is.

Gamernode (Jun 03, 2008)
Is Open Tee 2 the best of the Hot Shots franchise? No-Out of Bounds still holds its recently earned title. Open Tee 2 is an improvement upon the original PSP classic, but only a slight one. If it weren't for the wi-fi multiplayer, one could easily justify buying the much cheaper Open Tee to satisfy their portable golfing needs. Now that you can play your Hot Shots on the go and against friends worldwide, though, there's no questioning it: Open Tee 2 is a must-own for any Hot Shots fans, and anyone looking for a good multiplayer PSP game.

Cheat Code Central (Jun, 2008)
Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is full of challenge and great unlockables. The 12 courses included are very interesting and boast quite distinct terrain. I had a bunch of fun opening up all of the unlockable characters and cards in the single-player mode, but the online multiplayer tournaments were the most enjoyable. Being able to customize my favorite character my way, equip him appropriately, and then head out to the links for a little friendly competition was great! It made the arduous process of opening up the goodies far more rewarding. This title is the perfect companion for the PSP and one I highly recommend. If you already own the original title for the PSP, it is still worth giving it a look because there are new courses, more collectibles, and an online feature that can't be beat.

Da Gameboyz (Jun, 2008)
When looking at Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2, and taking the sum of all its parts, this series still remains as one of the easiest to pick up and play golf games that any one can take part in on the PSP. With a huge amount of unlockable content, a large number of playable characters, a satisfying number of courses, and the addition of online play, how can one really go wrong?
80
GameTrailers (Jun, 2008)
Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is a tough game to judge. It really feels like a clone of the original game with a mostly-functional online component thrown tacked on. There are a few updates and tweaks, but nothing that really ups the ante in a substantial way. Still, Open Tee was and is a fantastic game, and it’s hard to complain about being able to tee off online with that very same feel.
80
In a market filled with many deep and involving games for the PSP, Everybody's Golf 2 is a great chill out from all the bigger titles and is fantastic for bite sized gaming on the go, or for the truly dedicated, play sessions going into the hours. With an enormous number of unlockables, online multiplayer with up to sixteen players, and an addictive and polished gameplay system, Everybody's Golf 2 is a great game to sink your teeth into. It may be awfully similar to its previous iteration, but for the dedicated fans and newcomers, Everybody's Golf 2 is a worthy addition to your PSP collection.
80
Worth Playing (Sep 15, 2008)
All in all, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 is a very good PSP title. For veterans of the series, the sequel will feel very much like the three-year-old predecessor. It shouldn't surprise anyone, really. The graphics are the same as the first game in every possible way, and the same can be said for the sound and gameplay. While this may sound like a knock on any other game series, Hot Shots Golf fans really wouldn't have it any other way. The formula has always worked in the past, so any changes to it now would be perplexing. I'd consider it a worthy purchase for any PSP owner out there, whether or not you own the original title.
80
This title doesn't feature the new swing mechanic debuted in Out of Bound, and it's not much more than a reshuffling of what has already worked for the series. However, this game's predictable ceiling is mitigated by the fact that it stands on solid ground. If I could find this much reliability in my real life golf game, I'd be in the same league as Tiger, too.
76
Open Tee 2 is not for everyone. If you're a serious golfer or sports gamer, then you should probably stick to Tiger Woods. Also, if you have a low tolerance for overly cute, big-headed characters then Open Tee 2 should be avoided at all costs. However, if you're looking for some casual golf play and like games with plenty of items to unlock, Open Tee 2 will provide you with plenty of entertainment. In The End, This Game Hath Been Rated: 76%. If you've always thought that Tiger Woods PGA TOUR wasn't a cute enough game for you, you'll love Hot Shots: Open Tee 2.

JeuxActu (Jun 13, 2008)
Il ne faudra pas attendre une révolution de la part d'Everybody's Golf 2 sur PSP. Le titre se contente de concentrer les points forts de la série, tout en ajoutant le jeu en ligne qui séduit forcément sur la console portable de Sony. L'interface est claire, limpide, et les parties se déroulent sans le moindre accroc. Cet ajout de luxe fait de l'ombre au mode solo qui perd légèrement de son intérêt, mais ne tombe pas aux oubliettes pour autant, car il permet de récupérer les 24 personnages du jeu, quelques-unes de leurs tenues, ainsi que des parcours supplémentaires. Le contenu d'Everybody's Golf 2 n'est pas pour autant nucléaire, et l'astuce du "tracé-miroir" frise carrément l'arnaque. Si le jeu est doté d'une réalisation solide et d'un gameplay à la fois technique et accessible, les temps de chargement plutôt longuets agacent rapidement. Bref, le constat est similaire à celui dressé pour Everybody's Golf : World Tour : efficace mais pas fracassant.

Game Shark (Jun 23, 2008)
Even with all of these complaints, you'll still find a fun and engaging game of golf. Exactly how fun and engaging will be directly tied to how much Hot Shots golf you've played in the past. If you've never played the Clap Hanz version of a good walk spoiled, or if your collector's heart burns to find yet another track suit for Luke the Large Headed Wonder Duffer, then you'll no doubt have a good time.

Gamekult (Jun 06, 2008)
Everybody's Golf 2 reprend les bonnes bases du premier opus PSP tout en corrigeant quelques-uns de ses défauts. Plus fourni, notamment en parcours et surtout doté d'un mode de jeu en ligne simple mais bien ficelé, EG2 a une place à prendre dans la ludothèque de chaque joueur PSP, à condition qu'ils ne soient rebutés ni par le golf, ni par l'esthétique manga. Il n'est pas nécessaire de connaître en détail les règles et le jargon du golf pour s'amuser dans ce jeu arcade où la technique bien présente sait se rendre coulante. Comme la plupart des suites sur la même plate-forme, elle n'impressionne plus autant que sa grande soeur sortie en même temps que la console mais sa formule toujours aussi addictive classe la licence de Sony parmi les jeux qu'on dévore des heures durant et que l'on ne remise jamais définitivement au placard, tant il est bon de se refaire quelques birdies de temps en temps.

Gamer.nl (Jun 10, 2008)
Met een geavanceerd besturingssysteem en een uitgebreid opwaarderingssysteem is EG 2 een diepere game dan je zou verwachten. En dus dat je ondanks online weinig tegenstanders zult vinden, staat de rest van de game garant voor heel wat uurtjes speelplezier. Gebrek aan innovatie en een aantal terugkerende minpuntjes uit de voorgaande game zorgen er wel voor dat EG 2 behalve de online mode weinig toevoegt aan de reeks.

GameSpot (Jun 05, 2008)
The formula that Clap Hanz so strictly adheres to is a good one, and as a result Open Tee 2 is a good golf game. It's just frustrating that 10 years after the first Hot Shots Golf, we're stuck with essentially the same game with just a few more features and courses.

1UP (Jun 04, 2008)
Meet a few of the above conditions, and Open Tee 2 is for you. Otherwise, paltry additions like a nifty hole-in-one minigame -- which has you tackling long-distance trick shots for score bonuses -- aren't worth the club dues for grizzled swingers. I'd actually prefer a minigolf version of this series on the handheld systems. Maybe that would get me worked up about a relaxing round of Hot Shots again.
