Navigation

Main Menu

So, this is the screen that greets you when you start Everybody's Golf.  I'll run through quickly on what you can find under each section!

Single Player

EBGphoto_2.jpg

  • Challenge
  • Stroke
  • Training

Challenge

EBGphoto_2_1.jpg

EBGphoto_13.jpg

This is where a majority of the game is unlocked, you are awarded points on a scale depending on where you finish, so finishing first will always achieve the biggest reward! In the top image you will notice stars and crowns, a star shows that you have finished first, a crown denotes you have won and achieved a pre-set objective for that challenge, so for example, the crown requirements for challenge 1-1 is to win with over 2000 points. Earning crowns gain bonus points and after collecting a few, will unlock characters in new outfits.

Points are increadibly important as this is used for currency in the shop!

You also unlock new shop items like new clubs/balls/ outfits etc by playing this mode.

Want to know the crown conditions for all the challenges? Check the spoiler below (Courtesy of minigol.shihiko.net!)

Spoiler

Stroke

EBGphoto_14.jpg

Training

  • Find Room

From what I hear this game is addictive on the Vita.  Elixor was saying the other day that Hot Shots Golf along with Modnation Racers Road Trip are his favorite Vita titles so far.

I love it! Saying that, I'm a bit biased as a huge fan of Hot Shots Golf on the PS3!

I bought the game off of PSN a little while ago, but it didn't come with an Online Pass. When i searched up the Hot Shots Golf Online Pass it shows the little red icon showing that I downloaded it already, so I'm hoping it comes preinstalled in the digital version.

Edit: Nevermind I figured it out. The online pass is in my services list for my PSN account.

Even though I have sucked at all the Hot Shots Golf games I really want a Vita just for this.
