Back at E3 I stepped aboard the Gameloft party bus and was given a peek at their upcoming lineup. One of those games was Let's Golf 2 [$4.99], the sequel to one of my favorite golf games on the App Store, Let's Golf [$1.99 / Free / HD]. Looking back at the review of the original, I loved that Let's Golf was the closest thing to Hot Shots Golf on the App Store, one of the only reasons I kept my PSP.

Let's Golf 2 takes the same basic gameplay and enhances it with more holes (108 this time), along with more playable characters, unlockables, and better graphics across the six different environments. There's even online multiplayer, although as this point too few people are playing for me to get a game going. There is a career mode to play through, and each of the golfers even have their own super power they can use in a pinch such as a more powerful drive or more precise puts.

If you enjoyed the first Let's Golf, or gold games with an arcade feel in general, you should really give the Let's Golf series a spin. If the online multiplayer in Let's Golf 2 works as well as I hope it does, Gameloft is going to have a real hole in one on their hands here.

    Does the online or local multiplayer mode have matches with more than 2 players?

    • Sfsfs

      Yes you can play against up to 4 players

    Loved the first game.. but, my God, that music is so offensive.

    I remember buying the first one because of the good reviews it was getting and its comparison to hot shots.
    As you can imagine I was extremely dissapointed. This can't even exist in the same universe as hot shots. It's not deep enough the tracks are poorely designed and the controls especially in close shots are abysmal. And let's not talk about graphics. Not even in the same viccinity. I can go on and on...
    I hope the second version has at least improved on the accuracy of the controls. I'm not expecting anything else.....

    I bought Let's golf! (the first one), but I wasn't really convinced. It felt like every Gameloft game: it looks fantastic and the controls work, but after playing a while it just feels kind of shallow. Maybe the multiplayer mode can save this one.

    • Scott30

      I agree wholeheartedly on that I liked the game at first but got bored with it quickly even tho it did a pretty nice job of producing one of my fav golf games Hot Shots Golf for my phone....

      To me tho online multiplayer is win for this game and will definitely get me to purchase this one. Hopefully theres enough courses, variety, unlocks, difficulty, options, game modes to keep me playing longer then the first one.

  • KTR

    Waaaay too pricey... multiplayer or not.

    I won't pay anything above $2.99 for this and I'm sure many people would agree with me.

    • Mike

      Agreed, I feel the same way. Once a price drop comes I'll buy it.

        Add me to the party.

  • Dimitris

    If it's like the first one (barebones, mediocre graphics, controls, characters) then it really is pricey.
    To be honest I'm afraid to actually buy it. I don't want to get disappointed for a second time

    Shocked they didn't have an iPad version ready to go with this one since the original Let's Golf is already in HD...

    It would be a completely reasonable price and a definite must buy if it had retina display support... but since it doesn't I'll just wait for awhile.

    • Matt

      No matter what kind of updates the game has, the price needs to drop. It will get a lot more sales that way.

    So far I'm enjoying it, a definite improvement over the first one with more courses and a leveling scheme that makes a lot more sense (items earned actually correspond to the character that you're using). It's still not as good as the PSP version of Hot Shots, but that could just be nostalgia setting in.

    My one major gripe is the annoying Gameloft intro screen that ignores the silent mode setting. The developers were smart enough to provide a toggle option for the intro video but inexplicably let the intro screen slip by.

    This should be 99 cents or $1.99 like the first Let's Golf was at one point.
