OK now Im confussed by all these game sites after reading the CVG preview http://www.computerandvideogames.com....php?id=158080
Extract CVG - "the whole system doesn't quite work as you would expect. Oddly the power you put into your shot depends not on how fast you swing the Remote, but on how far you raise the Remote behind you before swinging. Maybe there are some safety issues behind that decision?
So if you want to swing at full power, you raise the remote right up before you swing. But for half power you only raise the Remote back to just around hip-height.
To us that's totally illogical because, considering the Wii is intended to make games accessible to the whole family, if you give the Remote to your golf-loving granddad he will expect the speed of his arm movements to convert into his in-game shot - as it is in Wii Sports Golf."
Now I play golf and the above sounds like near proper golf tracking to me. If you just go ahead and grip it and rip it as hard as you can you might hit the odd long shot but most of the time you would just lose control and hook or slice or just simply duff it. In real golf you choose the club and try and put the same smooth full swing on each club to gain the required distance (the club dictates the distance). If I was playing real golf and I had to pitch up to the green and a full swing was'nt required I would swing three quarters or maybe half to cut the distance the ball flies.
So I've come to the conclusion these games reviewers (IGN, CVG etc) have'nt got a clue how to play real golf!!!
