Graphics & Sound:

The graphics of Innova's Disc Golf are fair, at best. I'm guessing there are not more that 256 colors on screen, but with a game like this, anything more would be overkill. You will also notice quite a few graphical glitches on certain areas of the screen, especially around the edges. The sound (or lack thereof) is nothing more than okay. There is very little in the way of sound, and the comments made in the background are quite repetitive...and therefore slightly annoying once you have heard all there is to hear.


Simplicity can be a great thing or it can be the worst thing ever. In the case of Disc Golf, it falls somewhere in between. Its simple design makes it easy to jump into the game, but where the game lacks is in options. I would have liked to see much more depth to the game than just throwing a Frisbee at a chain link bucket.

In Disc Golf, you basically have three options: Solo play, Season play, and Internet play. Unlike most of its golf counterparts, this game just isn't that fun. In fact, I found myself bored with it after the first few rounds of play. Fortunately, there are 4 courses of 18 holes each, and 11 discs to choose from, so there is a bit of variety and skill involved.

I can't help to think that playing Disc Golf outside for real would be a blast! Unfortunately, it was never meant for the computer. If there had been a few more options and a bit more in-depth gameplay, maybe I could recommend this game...but there isn't, so I can't. Only die-hard gamers would be able to handle the laid back game that is Disc Golf.


The difficulty in Disc Golf is more or less determined by which of the four courses you decide to play. In addition, you can select your difficulty/skill level when setting up your own player. Difficulty increases this way by requiring a more precise throw for accuracy. It would be safe to say that there is a wide range of difficulties possible in Disc Golf, yet as the old saying goes, 'practice makes perfect.

Game Mechanics:

Point & click. Point & click. That's it. Everything you do is with the mouse ...gameplay, menu control... everything. You do have a great variance in control in Disc Golf while throwing your Frisbees, but the lack of options, the non-shortcut-key menu controls, and the slow-paced gameplay makes this game, quite frankly, kind of boring. Great original concept, but not a very good design. The only thing this game did for me is make me want to try my skills in real life on the Disc Golf Course. Better luck next time.
