Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational will not seem that different to longtime fans of the Hot Shots Golf franchise. It is literally the exact same style of gameplay as the previous entry on the PSP, with players working their way up through various challenges so they can unlock powerful upgrades and become a master golfer. The most noteworthy new feature is the online tournament play, which lets players compete against players from around the world. The graphics are also brilliantly done, and the physics involved in the way the golf ball interacts with the wind and the layout of the course has been significantly improved. In short, fans of the series will need little convincing to pick this up. Even players who have not played a previous Hot Shots Golf titles will quickly find enjoyment with this accessible game -- a key feature that has made the franchise so popular.
