'Outlaw Golf' (XB) - Courses & Characters

by Thomas on Nov. 18, 2002 @ 7:31 p.m. PST

Get ready for the most outrageous and humorous sporting experience to date with the latest release from TDK Mediactive Europe. 'Outlaw Golf' for the Xbox is a caddy-beating, full contact whirlwind of a game that will have golf fans and gamers alike spinning, slicing, hooking, putting, breaking and reaching for the sunscreen. The game is exclusive to Xbox this Christmas.

Players can choose to play 10 outrageous characters with attitude which range from outlaws, inebriated hooligans, white rappers, criminals, malfeasant doctors, Latin lovers, biker babes and sexy strippers. Gameplay takes place over three challenging 18-hole courses, each demonstrating their own unique, bizarre and game-enhancing characteristics including the underside of a Jersey Turnpike, the dust bowl of El Diablo course and the trees and trailer parks of Crusty Leaf Country Club.

'Outlaw Golf' will test your temper with its scientifically-perfected "composure response system" so the better you play the smoother the controls become, but the worse you play the harder it is to keep your cool Composure can be regained by focusing, concentrating and getting your game right but if all else fails and you need to let off some steam...beat it out on your caddy!

Barry Stearns, National Account Manager for TDK, said: "Join the fun with this hilarious golf sim with attitude. Chose your favourite outlaw, reprobate, biker babe or stripper and take your clubs and your life in your hands as you battle with your opponents whilst dodging low flying airplanes and stray bullets. It's a killer of a game!"

Three beautifully rendered 18-hole courses including Turnpike Valley Country Club, Crusty Leaf Country Club and El Diablo Country Club

A top shelf golf engine, stellar physics and excellent graphics

Different modes of play: Tournament Mode, Exhibition Mode and the Outlaw Range: Play for money or against your opponents or the clock

Up to 4 players

'Outlaw Golf' courses:


Turnpike Valley Country Club - Experience golf with a special flavour - a blend of toxic waste and traffic exhaust that cries New Jersey. Note the friendly message that the locals have colourfully painted on the tastefully placed concrete supports that allow golf and heavy traffic to coexist. Don't forget to dodge low flying airplanes!


Crusty Leaf Country Club - Remember the Civil War? They do. So look out for stray bullets and trailer parks as you head south - where the loveliness of the golf course is offset by the ugliness of certain local denizens. Word to the wise: Don't feed the one-armed man playing the banjo!


El Diablo Country Club - Golf in this desert and do your part to wreck the environment. Enjoy the low flying blimps, which are no more garish than the residents, and stop in to visit Grandma and Gramps when you finish your round. Also bring plenty of sunscreen and rattlesnake repellent!

Characters:

Only the finest individuals could golf on these courses. Choose to be:


C.C. - Growing up around six brothers meant CC learned early in life to kick major sports-ass and wear dresses later. This curvaceous and ultra-competitive Tomboy can dish out a delicate chip shot or a vicious roundhouse kick to her good-natured, tubby caddy, Heavy G. By the way, don't ever call CC a Tomboy to her face or you'll be looking out of your ear.


Doc - taking time off from his busy surgical and malpractice schedule, Doc Diggler never passes up a chance to hit the links...even if it costs a few patients their lives. Lugging clubs for doctor slice is his brain-dead caddy, Toast.


El Suave - Hailing from the most sexy, exotic locale on the planet - Tia Juana - El Suave is the only golfer ever known to be able to pose before, during and after a golf swing. Carrying the clubs for this Latin Lover is the ultimate brown-noser, golf shoe-licking toady, El Ramon.


Harley - Born in a motorcycle repair shop, Harley grew up with a crowbar in one hand and a golf club in the other. Harley perfected her golf swing beating up boyfriends and relatives. She is currently living in a van with her fellow hog riding, tough-yet-tender boyfriend and caddy, Snake. Harley can frequently be seen on TV, usually being handcuffed and hauled off by local police for disorderly conduct.


Ice Trey - Hailing from the rough and tumble, crime-ridden inner city streets of Beverley Hills, wannabe rapper, Ice Trey dropped out of school to pursue his dream of rapping and playing golf - a decision that was about as promising as his single digit S.A.T. score. Caddying for Ice Trey is his one-man pose, spinner and tattoo consultant - Fresh Fruit.


Killer Miller - Just released from prison strictly on a technicality, Killer Miller takes pride in his long game and is short temper. At 6'5" and 275 pounds of angry, rippling muscle, Killer puts on quite a snow - bringing new meaning to the expression "slaying his audience". Toting Killer's clubs is his caddy, confidant and twenty dollar an hour shyster attorney, A. Lance Chaser, Esquire.


Scrummy O'Doole - when he's not swinging his niblick on the back nine at St. Andrews, legendary soccer hooligan and world-class barroom brawler, Scrummy O'Doole likes to kick back and pass out in his own vomit.


Summer - Hailing from the Big Apple, where she splits her time between PHD studies in molecular biology at Columbia University and entertaining foreign businessmen in the champagne room of the Pink Flamingo please welcome sultry Summer and her equally ample caddy, Autumn. Remember gentlemen, after the game these ladies will be available for autographs...and lap dances. Bring plenty of singles.


Trixie - Trixie has been playing golf at private clubs ever since she was a wee little snob. Dumb as a ball washer and ruder than a slicing drive, Trixie's handicap is her mouth. She hails from quote-unquote "none of your business, USA." Carrying Trixie's bags is her deep-pocketed and dirty old caddy, Ed.


Mistress Suki - hitting the links, literally, is one tightly-laced, leather-clad golfing diva whose game is all about discipline. Inflicting maximum punishment on every ball she hits is Mistress Suki, assisted by her bruised and battered, but amiable 300 pound whipping-boy caddy, Puddin'. Watching these two out on the course is an excruciatingly exciting experience.

Availability:
'Outlaw Golf' for Xbox will be released on November 29th with a suggested retail price of £39.99. "Outlaw Golf' was developed by Hypnotix, Inc.
