Hole in One
Hole in One is a golf simulation developed by Really Interesting Software Company (RISC). It was released in 1995 in several European countries and runs on the DOS platform. Hole in One is a
digitized version of Golf with very few changes or customizations. It has various gaming modes such as Practice mode, Tournament mode, and a variety of friendly matches. The player has the
standard Golf equipment and can choose their power and direction. There are multiple camera angles and a swing meter. Weather conditions need to be considered before making a stroke.
The game offers decent VGA graphics and animations but lacks variety in Golf courses. It does a good enough job at recreating a classic gold course and tournaments but becomes predictable and
mundane towards the end. Hole in One falls short of innovation and variety to other Golf video games such as Links, which could have been the cause of why it never reached the heights of
popularity. Add-ons were promised which were never implemented. Despite the shortcomings, the game could still appeal to ardent Golf fans who do not mind a standard and frills-free game of
Gold every now and then. The graphics play a major role in attracting gamers, while the player animations try to make it as realistic as possible. The player gets a third-person perspective
into the field and can make use of multiple camera angles to get a good view. Hole in One is a single-player game and can be played using the Keyboard or Mouse.
