How I Got Into The Sega Saturn- "Pebble Beach Golf"

Back in my Megadrive/Genesis days, I spent many a pleasant summer's days ensconced in my living room with the curtains drawn, blocking out the glare of the sun on my TV screen, so I could play virtual golf.

Sad, but true. When it came to choosing my then 'next gen' console, the only consideration I had was "Would the golf be as good as it was on the Megadrive?" This lead me to plump for the Saturn over the Playstation, it's Sega-ness proving the decisive factor.

(I can feel my gaming credibility flying out of the window...) And so to "Pebble Beach Golf"... Bloody Marvellous! "Father Krishna!" I hear you cry... "This game looks shite!"
"Or does it?" I reply... "OR DOES IT???"

But look at the beautiful rendered video contained within the game... Beautifully realistic? I should co-coa! And having the beautifully chunky Craig Stadtler to guide you round the course and comment on your shots! Well it's just... beautiful... Oh deep joy!

And check out the foxy outfit on the lady golfer... Knee length shorts? Phwoar!!!

Seriously this game plays like a dream... So, snaffle this baby up if you ever see it lurking for the bargain-tastic price of £2.99 at your local Gamestation/Car Boot Sale/Thrift Store/Charity Shop or public conveniences. Peace out! And don't forget, if you find yourself with a lady golfer, in a deep hole, between a couple of curvaceous bunkers, take your wood firmly by the shaft, and swing it repeatedly before driving it straight toward it's target... *Cough!*

£2.99 is too expensive for a game that looks like it uses GIF images for animation. *giggles*

It looks awful. *LOL* I guess I'd have to play it. Because that video isn't selling itself to me. I'll take your word for it that it's a great game.

Oh and Well done with the embed video Father K. Way to go! *thumbs up*

You oughta check out some of the more recent golf games, namely Hot Shots Golf Fore!, Mario Golf, etc. I also picked up Tiger Woods 2005 on GC for a mere $5 brand new, and it plays like a dream.

And the Wii Sports golf of course :)

fatherkrishna said...

Thanks for all the videos Deitrix much appreciated... I've posted one on the other 'Yard...

Elderly, I agree I think the adaptation of genuine video (or at least photos) within the graphics still stand up very well!

Ross I have checked out Tiger Woods Golf for the DS but couldn't really get the hang of it (although I thought the touch screen 'swing' was excellent...

Gnome... You know I will be checking out Wii Golf in about six years time...

LOL!
