The unique controls scheme asks players to take the stylus, perform a back-swing, then let fly with a forward-swing. This is accomplished by dragging a straight-line from the top to the bottom of the touch-screen, and then back again. Your speed and accuracy are derived from your quickness and straightness of your movements. Although it feels odd at first, you'll soon be at-home making great tee-off shots - those special enough are rewarded with an on-screen "Great Shot!".
The fun lies within the games pure focus on hitting that ball. That's what it offers - complete and utter hole after hole after hole of golf. You do find yourself in a rhythm when playing this game, and it is pretty satisfying knocking over each hole quickly. There is always more to explore - this game has many courses (I'm not even sure of the amount), but it's got to rival or even better Tiger Woods for it's hole-count.
It's good golf and it is a game that relies on touch-screen almost completely. Fun, but not for those without a bit of patience. In that sense then, I guess it is a true golf simulator.
