XBox Solution (XBS) (Jul 22, 2002)
I felt as though Outlaw Golf really lost it’s flare with me, after a couple hours. The tournament modes were extremely difficult, and long. So you really have to have some patience in order to complete a whole round of golf. The only reason Outlaw Golf has any replay value is due the multiplayer modes. There is nothing like sitting back and playing Outlaw Golf with a friend, it makes the game so much better.

That being said, I have to take issue with the small amount of courses for play. Perhaps I’ve been spoiled by other titles, but only having three for the entire game is a little disappointing. In any event, if you own an Xbox, and you’ve been pining for something similar to Sony’s Hot Shots series, this is as close as you’re going to get – and it ain’t half bad. The characters are suitably raunchy (this game earns every inch of its T rating, believe me) and the graphics are right in line with what you’d expect from your beloved black console. The physics are a tad bouncy for my taste, but as you progress in the game they become more tolerable. A solid buy through and through.

Worth Playing (Feb 26, 2002)
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.

IGN (Jun 13, 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.

Outlaw Golf is a really good golf game with an outer crust that many golfers may not like. I wish the developers went for more of an outrageous theme than a sim theme because the game could have been great. It's still very, very good, however. If you like golf and own an Xbox, chances are you'll be satisfied.

GameSpot (Jun 13, 2002)
Outlaw Golf is an odd game because it has a theme that seems to appeal to a certain audience, yet the gameplay isn't really for that crowd. You'll have to deal with all the nuances of golf found in other more traditional golf games, such as putting spin on the ball and adjusting your putt for breaks in the green. In addition, the game's control scheme is more complicated than it probably should be, even though most players will be able to adjust after a while. While the game offers plenty of golfing variations and good replay value through the tournament mode, the fact that there are only three 18-hole courses may be of concern to some. Still, Outlaw Golf can be a fun game that's certainly worth at least a rental, if an offbeat golf game sounds interesting to you.

Outlaw Golf 2 never takes itself too seriously and offers up a great alternative from the rest of the pack. Outlaw Golf 2 is outrageous, sexy, challenging, hilarious and best served up on Xbox live or with friends. Add on the low price of this disc with the amount of fun you will have and there is really no reason NOT to pick this one up.

Funny, witty and cool, Outlaw Golf also manages to be a bit on the shallow side and wear thin too easily. The controls are unique, the gameplay is solid and the characters are memorably hilarious. Added to these strengths are “unlikely” course designs in places like the underside of a Jersey Turnpike and hilarious commentary that takes quite a while to grow stale. The downside to this is content, since the courses number only three in total and all the varied play modes in the world won’t remove the fact that you have played a hole many times before. The course designs also leave something to be desired, as the truly challenging holes with harsh doglegs or nasty hazards aren’t really here to be found. This won’t dilute your enjoyment of the courses that are included, but you won’t be long realizing that the selection’s a bit thin. Ultimately, Outlaw Golf plays like a professional golf title from a control standpoint, but the rest of its design seems catered at a golf-lite crowd.

Jeuxvideo.com (Jan 30, 2003)
Si vous faites partie 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 unique dans sa catégorie et sur ce support, qui devrait contenter les fans de softs multijoueurs.

Game Over Online (Aug 16, 2002)
Personally, I like Outlaw Golf, even though the basic concept of golf isn’t my cup of tea. Getting exposed (figuratively get your minds out of the gutter) to this kind of golf definitely increases my interest in more realistic simulations, while still satisfying my masochistic streak to beat and conquer. And the characters definitely augment the fast paced, fun-focused features of the game, where you could pick up a controller and leap into a few rounds. However, the control issues and composure bugs really throw a wrench into the total gameplaying experience. I know that a large amount of people will pick it up merely for the sex and violence the game portrays. But I think that a lot of golf enthusiasts or curiosity seekers may actually enjoy taking a look at this title.

Game Revolution (Jul, 2002)
Outlaw Golf is a very mediocre game. The actual play mechanics are solid, but the abundance of white-trash gimmickry gets in the way. They clearly spent more time on the characters than they did on the courses, which isn't a great design choice. Rent it if you must, and then go get your mom to buy you a forty.
