Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee (Sony PSP, 2005)
About this product
|After teeing-off on the original PlayStation and playing two successful rounds on PS2, the Clap Hanz-developed Hot Shots Golf series goes portable for the first time in this PSP game. Sticking with the well-established theme of "Golf for the People," Open Tee features exaggerated characters, useful power-ups, and a slew of unlockables, adding a friendly stroke of wackiness to an otherwise realistically challenging simulation of the sport.|
A total of ten customizable golfer characters eventually become available, to be joined by one of five personable caddies on the game's six courses. As in the console versions of the title, shots are taken with three timed button taps, and the contours of the greens are easily read through a dynamic grid display. A practice mode is available, to help players get a feel for the idiosyncrasies of each course and character, and the PSP's Ad-hoc peer-to-peer wireless connectivity supports multiplayer golfing for up to eight.

One of the best golf games!
This is one of the best games on the PSP. The PSP is very limited on the must-have games. This one is a must have! You can play tournament, match play, or putting challenge games with up to eight players over a Wi-Fi connection. The game’s graphics are beautiful, gameplay is excellent, it has easy to learn controls, and most importantly, tons of un-lockable items! It will take many hours and golf rounds to unlock all the items. This game is fun to play any time of the day.

I Bought A PSP Because I Wanted to Play Hot Shots Golf
It was sometime late in 2005 when my friend showed me his new toy... a PSP with Hot Shots Golf. He let me play it for a little while, and it was then that I decided... I had to have a PSP to play that addicting game!
HSG makes golf video games fun to the normal gamer! I've never played any sort of golf game before HSG, and I never thought I would enjoy playing one. But there's just a lot of little things which added up to one great game... that kept me coming back to play over and over again.
Graphics for this game are bright, colorful, and very aesthetic. This is not your typical Tiger Woods golf game, and it shows. From the opening video, HSG shows its intent and purpose: to be an extremely fun game to everyone. Courses are detailed, and vary greatly from each other in appearance. Characters have different apparel that they can wear, which players can unlock in different ways.
The sound in HSG is, well... playful. Music is upbeat, and adheres to the overall feel of the game. Sound effects are somewhat limited, although taunting in multiplayer games is hilarious and quite annoying to other people as well, I'm sure.
Gameplay is awesome in HSG! In an almost RPG style, you can unlock harder courses, better skills and equipment, which helps you to beat the harder tournaments and match plays. After awhile, the difficulty of this game gets quite high, and a player may find themselves having to repeat a tournament a few times before winning. And practice makes perfect, so it'll take awhile before you become worthy of the harder courses and challenges.
In addition to the normal gameplay, there is a putting mode, which you can unlock apparel from. Also, there are medals that you can receive for different achievements, such as a hole-in-one, or double eagle, or getting all items. These medals are very difficult to get, and allow for even more replayability.
In conclusion... Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee is an awesome game! Now that it's a greatest hit, and only costs $20, there's no reason for any type of gamer not to buy this one! Trust me... this one is worth it!Read full review

Great game!! and I don't even play golf!
OK.. Here is another addictive game. It looks pretty boring at first..and could scare some away because some golf games in the past have gotten WAY to techincal to be fun... but this game is awesome. It has great levels, options to choose different wear and characters through-out the game, and will keep you entertained! It also has a few different game type plays so if you get tired of one... you can easily switch over. One draw back, like a few of the PSP games would be lack on true wireless interaction. I recommend!
