We also have many different swing types from two swing meters to motion swing with the mouse to real time integrated swing with the controller or mouse. There are several simulation options too.True Time Of DayConfigure the time of day you want to play and watch the lighting change as the day progresses.

Jack Nicklaus Perfect Golf offers totally customisable green speeds based on official STIMP measurements from 8 to 14. In addition there are three firmness settings that can be used to set up a different challenge each time you play.The Free Camera
At any time engage the free camera and go for a wander around the golf course. While you are waiting for your opponent to hit you could be lining up your putt or taking a look down the hole at the green or simply moving to an aerial view of the course to watch your opponent hit. Our innovative free camera lets you take control of the way you want to watch the round unfold.

Jack Nicklaus Perfect Golf has been designed from the outset to be a community driven game with regular content and feature releases based on player feedback. We have spent a long time in early access trying to get the game to be the best golf game on the market. We have incorporated many community suggestions during this process.

While Jack Nicklaus Perfect Golf is still a work in progress we will continue to develop, update and imporve the game over time.

Jack Nicklaus Perfect Golf reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Early Access Review Since so far All reviews have been in English and I know from my own experience that there are also a lot of Fans of virtual Golf In the German-speaking area, I write this Review in my Native Language: The Game visually recalls from the Beginning of a n very strong to the Links LS Series. One could almost speak of a "Clone"; So Fans of the Series can get going directly and without Any problems. Unfortunately, however, this also applies to graphics, which are not state-of-the-art. A golf-typical Music runs in the Background (adjustable); Birdsong (also adjustable) accompanies my Path. Otherwise, the Sound is rather meagre. Here I miss the short Comments of the Caddies ("bite!" Or "crushed that one") as well as the Possibility to edit the Sound with my own Files. Even the Noise when Hitting the Ball could be fuller and more different. After the Start I find myself in the Chat Room where I can meet with one or more Players for a Round of Golf (Stroke, Match or Skins). The Process is very reminiscent of the then MSN gaming zone or Gamespy. So I create my Character, determine the Selection of the Rackets and adjust the Level of difficulty. Here are two different Possibilities of assistance that I can set freely: On the one hand, a spot widening on the so-called "swing meter" (the Tee Point is easier to hit) as well as a Kind of Flight Aid (if you do not meet the Point does not lubricate the Ball too Strong to the left or right). Nice: The Weather can be adjusted freely or can be determined by a "Real-time weather" Function. If you Find yourself alone or with others on one (of five) virtual Golf Courses, everything actually happens as with other Games of this Kind. A Racket is very easy to choose (the Proposition of the Caddie is to be treated with Caution). Set Flop, Fade etc and off for it. The golf feeling comes across well; A small Chat makes communication easier (of course, also for the tip flaps via Skype or TS3). At some Point I reach the Green-and here it comes to my Main Criticism point: The swing meter now shows a small Flag to which the Speed of the Ball on a flat Surface dictates to the Hole. So It doesn't Matter if you're 2 Feet or 20 Feet from the Hole. The Only Difficulty here is to assess the Gradient or Slope and to interpret correctly the grid, i.e. the Grid for determining the Breaks on the Green, which Mutates into a Gamble due to the far Too wide width of the Grid boxes. No, when I Put, there is no Joy in my mind. Other Criticisms include the lack of Game Modes such as "Best Ball" or "Scramble." There is only one (male) Golf character, no Tournaments, no career mode and no Ranking System. Ball Physics leaves you to Desires here and there and the Influence of the Wind is not always recognizable. Despite all this, I recommend buying this Product. After a long Time there is finally another Game of golf For the PC that can follow in the huge Footsteps of the Links LS Series. And since we are in the "Early Access" Area, there would actually have to be a big "still" in front of all my Criticisms, because they can all be repaired. I just hope that a great game of golf Will finally await me here again. At least the Approach is available, and it really does not look bad!
