Beside bearing the distinction of the first GameBoy game with battery back-up, Nintendo's Golf for the hand-held Game-Boy also manages to play a very decent game of golf! A number of options are showcased, including inputing your name, selecting Japanese or American courses, and using any one of a dozen clubs. Sub-screens allow you to view the whole course and the green, and indicators display the relative ball position, wind speed, etc.
This game unfortunately is rather limited with only two courses. Beyond that minor problem, however, Golf is a remarkable simulation of the real sport that has to rank as one of the best versions ever done. No 3-D images are used, but the game is well made and should please golf fans.
This is the best GameBoy sports game to date. It's so good, in fact, that it outperforms the NES Golf. The holes are difficult to master, with traps everywhere. The battery back-up is a nice touch because it saves your scores. It's unfair in some instances but remains excellent in almost every way.
GameBoy plays an excellent game of Golf. All of the features you'd expect from the real sport are brought together perfectly in this portable version. 18 different holes to play and a battery back-up allows you to save previous games. Good scrolling and game play should please most golf fans.
This is a very good game that addresses nearly every aspect of the real sport. Game-Boy Golf features all the hazards and clubs you could ask for and injects the solid Golf rules into a cart that's powered with a battery back-up and has smooth scrolling, isolated shots of specific areas and more!
