THE GOLF CLUB: COLLECTOR’S EDITION (X1/PS4)

OUT FRIDAY

Teeing off is a new contender to EA’s cast-iron PGA grip on golfing games – especially after Rory McIlroy’s inaugural effort underwhelmed a couple of months back.

HB Studios’ simulator has got a bit of a cult following since its release last year and this collector’s edition – which basically adds five new tour levels in season modes, a new tropical locale and a bit of tinkering – offers an experience that will probably appeal to purists of the sport.

More realistic stroke play, an in-depth course designer, and rewarding long-term play, may be tempered by a slightly unfinished feel, lack of licensed players, and underwhelming presentation – but this club has a likeability factor that gives it a worthy par first time round.
