Review of Swing Away Golf

Swing Away Golf is a hoot to play and anyone could easily pick up this game and start golfing. Instructions are straightforward and the tutorials that are provided, along with the caddies suggestions and advice, will quickly fill in the gaps.

Hitting the ball is pretty much the same as 99% of all golf games out there. You are provided with a swing meter and must time your upward and release swings to land in a little sweet spot on the meter. Any deviation either way could result in a substandard shot that will either hook or slice the ball and leave you sitting miserably in rough…or worse. Its worth using the driving rage provided until you get the hang of how it works.

There are so many different modes of play to choose from and the possibility of unlocking even more that will keep you glued to the TV as you try to get all the goodies you can.

Playing with up to 4 friends (with the multi-tap2) rather than computer players makes for a great nights entertainment. There is a wonderful little option where you can design your own courses.

The only thing that had any hindrance on the gameplay whatsoever was just the slight lag time between initiating your shot and actual execution. This does not interfere with any commands on your part, but you do notice it. This lag is also apparent when the players are changed. Again though, this is minor in my view and seems to get less apparent the more you actually get into the game.

Visually Swing Away Golf is a real treat. I liked the special character moves at the end of a hole that range from joy to sorrow depending on how well you did. The individual courses are superb with the best looking trees out there.

While playing you can view the course by using the analog sticks. This is a great feature and shows the level of detail nicely. The view is totally controllable, from rotation to zooming, you can perform fly-byes, get a birds eye view of the course and see exactly where you want to be. There are also nice little details thrown in like ducks floating about on ponds and fish swimming around and jumping out of the water. Oh, the water effects are really nice too!

The music in the game is lighthearted and compliments the play nicely. Nothing overbearing, but not drab either, playing with the background music on makes the courses seem to fly by.

The voices of the players and caddies can get repetitious at times, but they also tend to make you feel more into the game. There were several times I wanted to slap my caddie or boot my opponent for their remarks, especially when you already are feeling an idiot for missing that easy shot, but driving your emotions is all a part of the game.

OUR PLEDGE: We promise that we have fully played 'Swing Away Golf' before writing this review. The scores given above are our honest opinion and were not influenced in any way by the manufacturer or distributor of the game.
