The Golf Club 2
Top Critic Average
In spite of its minimalist aesthetic sense, The Golf Club 2 is an excellent compromise beetween a fun game and a realistic simulation. The career mode is very demanding and the golf courses editor is amazing.

As a 21st century sports title, the modes are a little lacking whilst the mechanics and course creator beat anything else yet made
The Golf Club 2 is exactly what you want from a sports sequel. It's a much better version of the game that makes you forget about the previous title instead of longing for it. The number of modes still feels sparse when compared to EA's older golf titles, but the major additions do a good job of working toward something more comprehensive for golf game fans. The dedicated community shows that the game will have legs for years, much like the first game, and while the presentation hasn't improved greatly, it looks respectable by today's standards. Even though The Golf Club 2 is the only current serious golf game around, fans should be happy to know that it's still a very good title.
The Golf Club 2 improves upon its predecessor in every department. However, graphical issues and an irritating implementation of ghost players means this drive lands in the light rough rather than the fairway.
In general I feel like this is a solid budget title with a fantastic course creator and a lot of options, but it's hard to recommend it to less hardcore fans of the sport.
The Golf Club 2 will entice you with easy-to-learn gameplay but will hook you with the quest for the perfect shot!
While there are some technical hiccups that occur here, The Golf Club 2 still offers the best round of play available on any platform currently. If you can look past those concerns, fans of the sport should find a great deal to enjoy about this latest offering in the series.
The Golf Club 2 is a satisfying and challenging golf simulation that succeeds thanks to the depth and quality of its core mechanics and number of courses available, despite a lackluster visual presentation and lack of proper online multiplayer.
In general, I like what The Golf Club 2 has to offer. It is a really solid representation of the sport both in terms of mechanics and the overall aesthetics.
So now with the released of The Golf Club 2, I finally got to get my gloved left hand on the controls. The game once again being developed by HB Studios they have given us what could be the greatest golf game released.
