|Back in the mid 1980s, Access Software created the first true first-person
perspective golfing sim for personal computers - Leaderboard. Its graphics
and gameplay went unmatched for so long that it became the de facto standard
for golfing sims for over a decade. This is the final incarnation of that
legendary game, featuring a souped-up game engine and improved graphics that
made it the preferred golfing sim among Amiga and Atari ST owners alike.
Every golfing sim since Leaderboard has adapted its style and approach, and
the Links series is its direct descendant.
There are lots of imitators, and a lot of its serious competitors may outstrip
it in one or two areas, but no G/MD golfing sim puts it all together as well
as this game. It is an absolute must-have whether you are a golfing fan or
a casual gamer - a game historian or a first-time player. The G/MD port is
a surprisingly faithful rendition of the Amiga game, with no discernable
differences between the two unless you know what to look for. It remains
the best all-around G/MD golfing sim ever created.
