Oscar Wilde said "Golf is a good Sunday afternoon stroll - spoiled", and so, no doubt, it's those people who prefer to sit at home on Sunday and take their Amiga for a brisk walk who will benefit most from Microprose Golf. Golf is not an easy game for beginners. Yet everything about this game seems so simple, from its humble beginings, to the supposed ease with which one can hit a small ball with a large metal stick towards a small flag.

Microprose are famous for their simulations and comprehensive documentation, detail and realism, so it's easy to understand why Microprose Golf has so many options available. A simple point-and-click system takes you through a maze of options which make the game look anything but simple. Fortunately, the programming team of Lee Hodgson and Mark Davies, have included a 'Quickstart Tutorial' option that puts you on one of the six courses, ready to tee off.



Graphics, too, are excellent, with the five option camera mode allowing you to view the path of the ball from a variety of angles - you can even include a pan shot which moves the whole 3D world around upon itself - all of which happens with a speed and fluidity of movement that would put Steven Spielberg to shame. Sound is the only poor point in the whole game. The sound effects, whilst adequate, add very little to the atmosphere, the game relying heavily upon its phenomenal playability to draw the player in.

Microprose Golf is a classic. It remains so because the game is as complete as it could be without you actually getting out there yourself and spoiling that Sunday afternoon stroll. If you play Golf, it's a must. If you don't, then after just a few rounds on the Amiga, you'll be making enquiries down at the local club - and, whatever the outcome, Sunday afternoons will never be the same again.
