Sensible Golf, PC

Relatively obscure follow-up to Sensible Soccer and Cannon Fodder.

Sensible Golf was first released in 1994 for the PC and Amiga, and didn’t really make much of an impact on the market, although it’s not a bad game at all.

Sensible Software‘s trademark ‘titchy’ characters are appealing, and the swing system works okay. The courses are also quite challenging.

Sensible Golf doesn’t play a bad round of golf at all and the colours are quite vivid for a golf game. Worth a look if you’ve never played it.

  1. If I remember the story correctly, Sensible Software had signed with Virgin Interactive to put three games out. They ticked one box with a Sensible Soccer re-release, this was one of the others, but ultimately they had their sights on the ill-fated Sex ‘n’ Drugs ‘n’ Rock ‘n’ Roll which wound up massively overbudget with not a lot to show for it. I always thought this was good much of a bad rep for what it was.

    1. I remember having a few conversations with Jon Hare about Sex & Drugs & Rock N Roll during development. I don’t think it was budget that killed it – more a lack of faith from publishers. To be completely frank, though, it never really looked like it would be much cop. I still have screenshots from Sex & Drugs (that Jon Hare gave me) and might publish them on here at some point.
