LET'S GOLF 3 is a fun simulation with plenty of game modes and fantasy courses. But it's not a "hole in one" either, mainly because this "freemium" game requires you to spend energy points per hole to keep playing -- by shelling out real or virtual money for more or waiting for energy to refill over time. In the single-player game, your first of six 3-D-rendered courses is the tropical South Pacific isle of Fiji. After that, you can play China, Egypt, Ireland, Outer Space, and Under the Sea. Playing the game is fairly simple: It's a "three-click" (or three-tap) mechanism familiar to seasoned golf gamers. Visually, the game looks great as the ball sails through the air and drops down on the fairway or green –- and hopefully, avoiding the water, sand, or rough. You'll earn some coins and experience points per hole, which you can use to purchase goodies in the marketplace, such as better clubs or special balls with powers. Play well and you can unlock new modes, plus there are a few minigames, too. Let's Golf! 3 also offers a few ways to play a multiplayer game for up to four people.

If you run out of energy points you can buy more with virtual cash or spend real money. For example, in-app purchases range from $.99 cents (for a pack of 20 cash) all the way up to $49.99 (for 1,400 cash). Some golf game fans might prefer to just spend, say $5, for the complete game. Overall, it's hard to complain about this free app -- especially as it's fun to play -- but the "freemium" model might irk some.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
