Real World Golf
The Humble Sport of golf is one of many recreational activities which loses some authenticity when ported to the virtual world of our desktops. Swinging a great big stick around in an attempt to make a ball go down a hole just doesn't translate well to a keyboard and mouse combo. What's more, whereas games like Virtually Jenna now provide 'experience-enhancing' USB peripherals, golf fans are left stroking their spacebars enviously.
If only somebody was crazy enough to invent a pair of gloves attached to a gyroscopic sensor capable of accurately detecting 3D motion, thus converting a game like Real World Golf into the most realistic golf simulation you can play in your living room, golf fans the world over could stop trying to putt with a 12-inch phallic peripheral and play the sport the way it was meant to be played... Trading your dignity for a miniature plastic golf club and a pair of gloves with strings coming out you'll soon realise how well the controller actually works. Even subtle movements like tilting your club slightly are mimicked by your on-screen avatar, and my clumsy swings were faithfully translated with frightening accuracy.
Real World Golf (not unlike Virtually Jenna) is best played with open-minded friends, especially when the computer players possess the golf skills of a herd of quadriplegic donkeys. If you're a golfer who's prepared to look a little more ridiculous than usual - like Prezzer, below - Real World Golf is for you.
