The shameless bunch from the Outlaw series returns to the
repressed world of golf with their outrageously twisted antics.
Bodacious babes and deviant dudes take to the course. Anyone
and everyone can grab some balls and spin, hook and slice
their way into the action online, where 10 over-the-top characters
turn boring old golf into a rowdy and tasteless display of
Golf 2, like the other games in this series (Outlaw
Golf and Outlaw Volleyball), follows the simple
rule: take a boring sports sim and add a little bit of spice.
If you like golf, and dominatrix women in lingerie are your
thing, then Outlaw Golf 2 is the game you've been praying
you start you must choose your team - a golfer and caddy -
from a choice of four. The most interesting are the beautiful
Summer and her dominatrix caddy. Later on, as you progress
thorough the levels, you can unlock other characters. The
two redneck players are probably the most entertaining and
have the most amazing celebratory dances.
cut scenes (where the golfers perform certain actions) before
and after shots becomes boring very quickly. Not just because
they are repetitive, but because they slow up the game. And
even though you can skip these, it still takes something away
from the pace. The cut scenes are also a little childish in
places - most of them being very un-PC.
commentator is funny for about two minutes and then his oh-so-clever
remarks start to repeat a little too often. Not only that,
but it's sometimes totally wrong. I chipped in a lovely little
shot only to be told that I was a rubbish shot - even though
I managed to get it in under par.
your ball towards the hole is simple enough - use the left
or right analogue stick and pull back. Wait until the power
meter gets to the desired level and then push the stick forward.
But this game comes into its own when on the green.
has always been a sticking point on golf sims - being either
too easy or too hard. Outlaw Golf 2 uses a nifty little
device that really works. While on the green you have a target
which you can move around. This shows you where you are aiming
the ball. But in order to see the angles of the green you
simply press the square button. This shows you the ball's
predicted route if you strike it. Simply move the target around
until the line leads straight to the hole... Oh, and you can
only press the square button a maximum of three times per
are plenty of mini games and different levels to keep you
amused for months and every time you complete one level this
unlocks another game. Also, as you progress, you earn points
that you can swap for increased powers (putting, distance,
composure etc). Another
feature allows you to play online, if you so desire, against
real players who also have no friends.
correct it may not be, but that's part of the attraction.
And at the end of the day this does manage to breathe new
life into a tired format. If only there had been more variety
in the commentary and cut scenes...
those of you who like golf, but want a little more fun...
Outlaw Golf 2 is worth a look - especially as you can
pick it up for under £20.
