Posted by Staff
LOS ANGELES (11 May 2000) Ubi Soft are proud to announce the latest in sports sims. Ultimate Golf is unlike any other in it’s genre and will captivate all players from the most passionate ‘real golfer’ to the more casual player looking for fun. Experience for the first time a golfing game in a true 3D real time environment. Become immersed in the simulated world as you strive to conquer all weather effects, and battle against intelligent AI. Take a stroll down the course and examine the ground that lays before you (watch out for that bunker!). Rejoice in the innovative “Real Feel” control method, allowing more control than ever thought possible.

Swing into action with Ultimate Golf…and watch your stroke improve.

A real simulation: realistic physics and weather effects, large choice of customisable clubs…

Complete 3D accelerated environment, which permits to play in 1st person view (the first game to provide this feature ever!) and to display full rotational 3D characters and even to walk on the courses in a “Quake-like” view.

Innovative “Real Feel” control method : the swing movement is linked, in real time, with the mouse movement. At last, the player is freed from the traditional 3 clicks method !!
(Of course, the click method remains an option in the game for the more traditional players.)

A faster pace than other games: the complete 3D and real-time control method has made it possible to bring a new gameplay experience. No more endless loading time of the next landing point… your camera will follow the ball without latency. Forget wasting time spent in menus trying to change your swing parameters… it is all available on screen and depends more on your mouse swing. You can disregard “trial” shots… get all the info you need by walking to the next green and closely analysing the ground undulation.

3 Courses in extremely varied environments: England (Forest) , Hawaii (Islands), Arizona (Canyon).

7 game modes: stroke play, match play, tournament, Grand Tournament, fourball, foursome, practice.

TV-like camera movement : the camera follows the ball automatically choosing the best viewpoint, as on television.

Multi-player option: 4 players in LAN or on the Internet (Ubi Game Service).
