American writer Mark Twain once famously said that golf “is a good walk spoiled”. What a shame the creator of Huckleberry Finn never clapped eyes on Everybody’s Golf on PlayStation Vita. He could have enjoyed his stroll as well as a stunningly vibrant recreation of the sport he dismissed.
From the moment the camera swoops to take in the lush fairways and immaculate greens ahead of you, it’s abundantly clear that this is a game designed to invigorate thanks to crisp, colourful visuals on the PS Vita system’s 5-inch OLED screen. In the clubhouse, an eclectic roster of golfers and caddies, together with a huge number of special clubs, balls and bonus abilities, only adds to the upbeat, sunshine appeal.
Out on the course, as you prepare to drive towards the hole, you can take in your surroundings using the PS Vita system’s rear camera – simply tap the on-screen camera icon to enter Free Camera Mode. You can then spot the potential pitfalls ahead: a bunker here, a tree there, even a sneakily hidden pool of water.
Admire the view, enjoy your caddie’s breezy advice and then get ready to hit the fairway in Everybody’s Golf on PS Vita. See you at the tee.
