British Open Championship Golf
It seems like just yesterday that golf simulations consisted of cartoonish players whacking a large white dot towards a flat, light-green circle. No more. Now most golf sims are graphically stunning and the key is finding new wrinkles. This game distinguishes itself by concentrating on the most intriguing major tournament in pro golf, the British Open. Two courses are included, St. Andrews and Royal Troon. The interface is simple and complete, and the soundtrack is great, featuring shot-by-shot commentary from Jim McKay and Michael Bradshaw.
