There is a new 3D game in the 3DS eShop, and it really is value for money. Unlike the two previous 3D games which have so far graced the eShop, Let's Golf 3D is both a very modern and graphically stunning little game. It also features a good range of modes, locations and customisable features.
Let's Golf 3D is a full golf simulation game, which is a 3DS port of the Let's Golf series by third-party developers, Gameloft.
Players can take control of one of eight colourful unlockable characters and test out their skills on the golf course. More characters, costumes, locations and objects can be unlocked as you progress through the game.
There are 2 main game modes to try, Single Player and Two-Player. Single Player mode also boasts 4 different modes of play, which are as follows:
Instant Play - allows gamers to jump straight into a game of golf in any one of the six locations on offer.
Career Mode - choose to play as one character in a variety of tournaments and try to win all of the medals on the course. Medals can be unlocked for different successes throughout the game such as your first Birdie, etc.
Challenge Mode - Try various challenges within specific time limits in order to unlock more characters and customisable options.
Free Hole Mode - Play diffent kinds of matches and a various number of holes until your heart is content.
The Two-Player Mode allows for a friend or family member to join in the fun. Simply choose a location and then pass the 3DS console between players.
It might be a downloadable port of a pre-existing game, but Let's Golf 3D really does include a lot of virtual fun. As well as choosing between the four different game modes, players can also choose between two different styles of play.
Stroke Play allows players to take part in golf tournaments. Players must complete each hole in the shortest possible number of strokes in order to stay at the top of the leaderboard and win the tournament.
Match Play allows players to face-off against another opponent.
Both styles of play will reward players with additional characters, experience points, or custom clothing and objects.
The 3D evironments are based on areas around the world. Each of the 3D environments also includes a number of animals, which players must try to avoid. For example, in England, you might find horses, foxes or rabbits running across the green, whilst, in Kenya, you might find monkeys or elephants interupting your game instead. This helps to add to the fun.
This game is very easy to pick up and play. If you are looking for an inexpensive 3D game, then you could do a lot worse than Let's Golf 3D. The game costs £5.50 and takes 1,523 blocks of data to download. Let's Golf 3D is available from the 3DS eShop now. Overall rating: 9/10.
