Long, long time ago, someone said that "looks aren't everything." This quotation definitely does not apply to PGA European Tour
at all. From hitting the power switch, I was immediately not at all impressed with the graphics or animation of this game. I've played other golf games for Nintendo before, but what this lacked was definition to detail.
I think that part of the problem was that Infogrames spent a little too much time working on the animation for the characters, and not enough on the courses themselves. At times, I couldnít even see where the pin was on the green.
Also, the sounds in this game are nothing spectacular. You will have occasional woodpecker noises or a loon call here or there, and thatís ok. The music at the beginning is catchy, and it fits the feel of the game. But you cannot get through a round of golf without hating the announcer at some point. His calls are never consistent, and he is always willing to put you down if you have a bad shot. I finally turned him off because I went into a state of depression. Plus, where is the crowd cheering me on? I need motivation!
