Electronic Arts’ Disney Golf for the PlayStation 2 is a very kid friendly game (rated E) that probably has enough options, power-ups and upgrades to satisfy older gamers as well. Everyone can enjoy the game, which is set for 1 to 4 players (using multi-tap). Easy gameplay graphics include a floating icon that always shows were the flag is located and hit meters that mark the ideal time to hit the ball. Disney Golf has six courses including American, Western, mountain and tropical
Creative screen wipes and eight classic characters including Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald. Mickey’s announcer/help character shows up to make comments and helpful tips during your turn. He would probably be more annoying if the game wasn’t so easy. The controls are also simple except for some menu navigation. Remember to hit select to get out of a game.
You have the options of a Quick Start, Game Start, Continue, and the Members Room where you can explore character status, course records, replay room and the all important load/save option. Game modes include Match Play (2 players), Stroke Play (best total score for 1 to 4 players), Skins Play (each hole worth a certain number of points) and combination mode which allows for cooperative play as two players switch turns.
You can also participate in simpler games/contests including Near the Pin and Longest Drive (use Goofy). There’s also a Challenge mode for one player. Add two bonus modes and you’ll find a lot of fun-filled entertainment for hours and hours.
