Golf Master
Copyright/Publisher: Rack It/Hewson, Release Year: 1988, Number Of Players: 1 to 4

No matter how hard I try, one little word keeps worming its wriggly way into the sludgy mess right at the back of my mind. And that word is (wait for it) Leaderboard.

Golf Master isn't such a bad little game but it don't even come close to the best golf sim ever. It's certainly different, though. You pick your club and set up the strength and direction of your shot before the ball starts moving so there's really very little skill involved.

Just set your controls, press the button and 18 holes later you're a superstar (or maybe not). OK, so it's quite fun for a while but in the long run Golf Master just doesn't have enough complexity to last. If you haven't already got Leaderboard (where have you been?) get that for 2.99 instead.
