PSP Fanboy review: Hot Shots Golf Open Tee 2


It's not easy reviewing Hot Shots Golf. Why? It's not because it's particularly bad -- no, in fact, the game is quite good. The franchise has a long legacy of high quality titles that date back to the PS1 era. However, how does one explain the merits of a game that has so subtly changed? Each iteration adds a bit more functionality, and refines the gameplay. However, the core mechanics have remained largely unchanged for a decade.

Open Tee 2 expands upon the original Open Tee game by adding more courses, more customization options and the biggest selling factor, online Infrastructure gameplay. For those that are familiar with the franchise, these additions may be enough to warrant another purchase. However, those that want more than the series' traditional 3-click swing mechanic have no reason to upgrade from the already-excellent original Open Tee.

Firmware 3.96 included on Hot Shots Golf disc


If you absolutely must have the latest PSP firmware, you may want to pick up Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2. The UMD comes packaged with firmware 3.96, although the contents of said firmware are unknown at this time. Considering the small numerical leap from the previous official release (3.95), we're assuming that the new firmware adds no significant new functionality.

We've contacted SCEA for a comment.

This Open Tee 2 vid is all about online play


Here's a pretty video clip showcasing some of that online gameplay from Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2. There is a robust 16-player online mode for gamers to take part in, and there's also an 8-player ad hoc mode. Of course, if you're planning on not doing any of those things, then there's still the single player game -- it's not going to just get up and run out on you. Open Tee 2 comes out this June 3, so it won't be long before you start hitting the course again on your PSP ... or have the urge to buy yourself some plaid pants.

Meet Hot Shots Open Tee 2 cast in these here vids

With a US release coming up soon, there's definitely an influx of Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 media coming in. Have you noticed? Anyway, these two gameplay vids we have right here show off some of the game's cast of quirky characters pulling off snazzy, yet unrealistic, special moves. Take the blond guy's par at ten seconds into the clip for example; that move is so explicitly cheap we have to shake our heads in disapproval. Of course, when we get to pull that move off for ourselves, trailing behind a few holes, then it doesn't seem so bad to use that ace up the sleeve.

Check out the second clip after the break. What's in it? Watch a poor old lady fail to clear the sand trap. Sad.

Hot Shots Open Tee 2 box art revealed, plus new screens


Click for high-resolution image.

Here's a look at the North American box cover for Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2. Isn't she a beauty? The boy in the red sweater does seem familiar though ... where have we seen him before? Oh! That's right, he looks like the kid version of the sleazy guy on the Out of Bounds box for the PS3. Son, what have you become. Anyway, the other characters are an interesting and eclectic bunch; there's a samurai character and a granny, too. You can see them all in these ten new screenshots from our gallery below. Enjoy.

Look at the mini-games of Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2

When you want to take a break from golf, you can always ... well, play more golf. The mini-games of Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 don't appear to stray far from the formula. At least, not according to this GameTrailers montage. Watch as this player shows us the many ways to avoid successfully sinking a golf ball.

PSP Fanboy has just received their preview code of the game, and will be providing you impressions shortly.

Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 gets June US release date

It's been a long time coming, if you ask us. Hot Shots Golf is coming back to the PSP, sure, but until now we've never been able to pin down a date for the game. A three year hiatus between portable titles is enough! We have to alter our schedule to get a round of golf in, you know? Well, Open Tee 2 is coming to America on June 3rd, sporting some full-fledged online play and further character customization than its predecessor. We're glad to finally have a date and one so soon, too.

English language screenshots of Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2


Golf is the kind of sport that transcends languages, right? Regardless, SCEA has just released new screenshots of the upcoming Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2. This PSP-exclusive follow-up to Open Tee features the classic Hot Shots gameplay we've all grown to love, but adds a key feature: Infrastructure multiplayer, so you can take your shots online.

Hot Shots Golf Open Tee 2: debut trailer

If the anime-inspired hijinks of the recently released Hot Shots Golf game on PS3 couldn't satiate your appetite for the sport, have no fear. SCEA is bringing over a new Hot Shots Golf game to the PSP, unsurprisingly named Open Tee 2. The franchise has been known for its easy, accessible gameplay, and we don't expect that to change in this iteration. It looks to retain all the wackiness the franchise is known for. Just look at that awesome penguin suit for proof!

New Minna no Golf Portable 2 screenshots


The Magic Box has found new images of Claphanz's next PSP outing, Minna no Golf Portable 2 (also known as Hot Shots Golf in the US). This Infrastructure-enabled sequel is hitting Japan later this week, and we can't be more excited. There's something truly charming about the series' art style and accessible gameplay, and we're certain that this will be able to move a few more PSP units into the loving hands of Japanese gamers everywhere.

Wait, is Hot Shots Golf supposed to look this good?


Is Hot Shots Golf supposed to look this good? New screenshots from the upcoming PSP sequel show off some truly stunning environments. These are a remarkable improvement over the first game on PSP, and shows how far developers have come in squeezing some truly impressive PS2-quality graphics out of the machine. The gameplay of the Hot Shots Golf series has always been reliably good. But now, we can safely say it's a pretty big visual powerhouse on our system as well.
