I recently decided to play an old golf game I had lying around for my PlayStation portable. This has always been my favorite portable psp golf game and I would also say it is the best portable golf game on any portable system.

The basic elements of the console versions are intact. Everything from the obscure and zany cutesy characters to the crazy courses are all here on the psp. The graphics and sound are excellent and really keep you tuned into the game.

The basic game consists of a various gameplay elements such as a career type mode in which you level up your golfer, a training mode in which you can practice any course and the game even has a challenge mode which will let you unlock even more content.

The coolest part of the game is that you are free to customize your golfers clothes and accessories however you see fit...if you want to have your golfer go around the course wearing a car suit (yup a car) you can! This really adds to the fun.

I never found this game overly challenging, but the AI golfers do not just let you win have to master the easy-to-use swing mechanic and learn each course to actually beat them :)

The music is pretty good and like I said earlier the graphics are very good as well. The load times are pretty good as well so you don't have to wait 5 minutes to play a round of golf :)

If there is one element I wish that the developers had improved upon it is that they never really innovated with this really is just more of the same....luckily "the same" is still great :)

Overall this game is very good and I recommend it to any golf fan and especially to gamers who played the console versions.
