Pack up your polos and khakis cause we're going to Europe! This overseas golf adventure for the Super Game Boy delivers almost everything that made its 16-bit relative the best.
Beat the Bunker
The PGA series flies high above the rest for two reasons: You can completely control a shot, and you play on the best courses around. Choose between four of Europe's finest battlefields, then step onto the course with a familiar golf interface, including a stroke meter and draw and fade gauges. Aim your shot, select the right club, calculate the wind, and you're ready to tee off in a practice round, tournament, or Skins challenge, which is where the cash can really pile up.
The control is excellent Choose the right club, and you shouldn't have much of a problem. With practice, putting can be a pleasurable experience.
This golf sim looks good. Beautifully detailed courses with easy-to-follow fairways are complemented by smooth, close-up swing shots and portraits of the pros. On the Super Game Boy, the added color makes this one look almost as good as the Genesis version.
With few sounds available on a golf course, PGA does its best to bring out the little things. Along with the familiar pro-shop music, you'll hear your ball at takeoff, in flight, and upon landing.
If a big Skins purse is your goal, you'll find it in this realistic golf game. Don't hesitate to grab your clubs and passport and head for these portable links.
- The computer won't always give you the right club for the next stroke. Change clubs as often as you need to.
- The overswing feature enables you to use more than 100 percent power, but unless you're dead-on accurate, you'll dramatically hook or slice your shot.
- There's no pulling grid, so gauge the amount of power necessary by the marks indicating rises and drops on the green.
