Xbox One’s entry in the surprisingly competitive world of cartoonish golf games, Powerstar Golf, has gone free to play…sort of.
Zoe Mode representatives take us through the first three holes of this latest addition to the Xbox One's stylized golf game.
Might as well push the tee off time back a day, because some improvements are shortly on the way for Powerstar Golf.
Golf is a fine game that takes much skill and practice to play, and plenty of patience to appreciate. Unlike most competitive sports, golf doesn't pit players against one another (unless it's a tournament). Instead, it puts them up against the course itself. A player's excellence is determined by how well they perform against the set standard (par), rather than how they impacted another golfer's performance. The same could be said for golf video games, for which Tiger Woods and Hot Shots have both established a set standard for what we should expect. Powerstar Golf doesn't quite match up with its contemporaries, but it's a solid first effort from Zoe Mode longtime golf gamers will appreciate.
As we draw nearer to the launch of the Xbox One, new tidbits about some of the lesser-known features on the console are coming to light. Thanks to some recent livestreams, we now know a bit more about the infamous Achievement indicator.
