The top Genesis golf series has finally teed off on the SNES.
T∙HQ selected the strong elements from the old Genesis games to concoct this fairly enjoyable SNES version, but sharp features like backspin and 3D terrain are absent. Many basics are still here, though: ten pros, eight courses, and a fairly responsive version of PGA Ill's power meter.
Despite the irritatingly slow screen redraw, the graphics sport nicely detailed backgrounds and fluid sprite movements. The vanilla music and infrequent effects score a bogey, though.
Patient gamers will find a good round of golf despite these flaws. While it doesn't top Genesis PGA III, this first SNES outing gets the job done better than its lame Genesis counterpart.
- Always underpower pitches by about 5 percent to compensate for the log roll.
- Adjust your aim to compensate for winds faster than 10 mph.
