It’s time for tee off! Are you ready? Head on over to World Golf Tour to experience the best virtual golfing on the net! In this game, you can play with your friends in various virtually-rendered locations that are similar to major renowned golf courses worldwide!
Get that hole-in-one by executing a perfect swing after analysing the terrain and determining the swing power that you need! Up your game further by purchasing equipments like drivers, new golf clubs and better golf balls. You can also upgrade your look in this game by buying cool new outfits and accessories. If you love golf but you don’t have the time to actually go out to the course for a game or two, World Golf Tour is the game for you!
The game starts off by teaching you the basics of the game and one of the most important skills that you will need to know and learn is controlling your swing power. It’s rather hard to gauge how much power you will need to reach the hole at first, but with some trial-and-error, you can roughly estimate the amount of swing force you will need to get your ball off the tee and as close to the hole as possible. However, once you’ve set your swing power, the bar on the swing meter will start moving rapidly. You will need to stop the bar in the marked region on the swing meter to score that perfect swing! Your mouse finger reflexes will definitely be put to the test!
World Golf Tour also provides an aiming feature whereby, after setting your target, it will tell you the distance and elevation that your ball will need to achieve in order to reach the target location. However, for beginners (or in golf slang, ‘hacks’), it is extremely hard to get your ball from the tee straight into the hole. If you can land your ball within 50 yards of the hole for your first shot, it’s pretty good enough.
The last part of the comprehensive tutorial introduces you to the mechanism of putting. During putting, the ground between your ball and the hole will be covered in a grid. This grid shows the elevation of the ground (Blue for high elevation and red for low) as well as which direction the ball will roll if you ball landed in any of the boxes on the grid. Despite the aid given, it’s not as easy to tap the ball right in as it looks. This game is still as challenging as real life golfing!
At the end of every game, you will be shown your scorecard. The scoring system in this game is similar to real life golf. Most golf courses have a set amount of pars (with an addition of 2 putts per hole). If you can score around the maximum number of pars or below it, you can be considered as a professional golfer. For amateurs, if you can score, for example, below 90 for a 72-pars course, it is considered good enough.
Golfing is not all about skill though, if you have the cash, why not spend it on some sweet new equipment to up your game? World Golf Tour offers plenty of goodies, such as drivers and golf balls that have exceptional forgiveness, at its Pro shop. You can also buy new golf clubs to suit your play style. So, don’t get robbed of a good shot! Buy some new equipment to supplement your game before heading out to the field to show your friends a thing or two about golfing!
Furthermore, it’s not good enough to just bring your ‘A’ game to the golf course, you’ll need to look good while hitting that hole-in-one too! Purchase different outfits for your avatar to suit your taste at the Pro shop for a reasonable price. You can even complete your classy look with a slick new golf bag by your side!
Similarly to the country clubs established for the golfing community in real life, World Golf Tour has its own virtual country clubs for you to meet other golfers from around the world. You can pick up some golfing tips from the more experienced players there and play golf with them in the game. Who knows? You may end up actually teeing off with them in real life too!
There are also community events where players will host golfing tournaments or championships for other players to play in. These games are usually broadcasted to the entire World Golf Tour community via Twitch, a popular video-streaming site for games.
The golf courses offered in this game look absolutely amazing! It has plenty of beautiful sceneries for you to enjoy and since these locations are based on actual golf courses around the world, you may get to visit one of these places if you can spare the money! World Golf Tour definitely has the best graphics among other golf games.
In terms of sound, you will get to hear upbeat techno music at the interface, but during tee off or putting sessions, you will get to enjoy either total silence supplemented with the occasional bird calls or sounds of cheering from your fans/ friends.
World Golf Tour is certainly one of the best golf games out there! It has golf courses that are based off on actual locations from around the world and the amazing graphics in this game did justice to the picturesque sceneries that you can see in those places in real life. Moreover, the tutorial provided in World Golf Tour is so detailed that even someone who has no prior knowledge or experience in golfing can pick up the game easily and quickly (but to master the game, well, that’s a whole new issue). You can also step up your game by purchasing more forgiving drivers, golf balls or even golf clubs and dress your avatar in different cool golfing outfits. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to milk the grip of your virtual golf club and get ready to nuke that ball in World Golf Tour!
