One of the best sports series on Genesis was EA's PGA Golf. Ease of use, great graphics, and phenomenal gameplay made every one of these titles pure enjoyment. The jump to 32-bit has produced some mixed results, though.
We'll start with the good stuff. PGA for the PlayStation is nothing short of beautiful to look at and play. The graphics are stunning and the ball's movement and physics are greatly improved. Also, putting has been made easier by showing the green grade on the playing field (you no longer have to exit to another screen to check it) and some helpful advice from the commentator.
Some of the game mechanics have also been enhanced. One of those features is a Targeting Arc which shows you the flight of your ball. This will give you a better idea of where that little sucker is going.
The one major flaw shows up in the interface when you're setting up. Too many buttons are used in playing this game, whereas in prior titles there were only one or two. What this boils down to is an absurd experience while choosing course, number of players and so forth. But once you manage to get through the quagmire that is the set-up screen, PGA Golf '96 is, to date, the best golf game out there.
