"Presentation is top-notch, from the slick menus and wonderful control options to the clear, colourful in-game graphics. Because you can rotate the screen through 90 degree increments the ball is never blocked from view and you can have a good look around to plan your shot. You can even toggle the player character on and off for those tricky close shots. There is a distinct cartoon feel to the game, with the large-headed pseudo-manga player characters to the SPLASH! message that flashes up when you manage to land a shot in the water. There are some really great ‘No!’ moments too, like when you slightly overcook a shot and watch it creep towards a ledge and you know it’s going to plummet into the water, or you use too little power and the ball almost reaches the top of a slope and then rolls back to end up at your feet. It would have been nice if the player character reacted to a good or bad shot, but they tend to just stand there, nonchalantly waiting for the next one, although the game does applaud a hole-in-one with a rousing cheer."
