Despite the plethora of Sims-inspired games in the market, this golf fantasy game still offers plenty of challenges for the creative who aren't peeved by its substandard graphics. Just as in games Theme Park and SimCity, your goal is to create the golf resort of your dreams. Golf players come to visit and play on the courses you've designed. The graphics of SimGolf aren't any more developed as the first version of the Sims game, released in 1989. The interface also is similar and basic, and characters babble to one another. We weren't thrilled with the game resolution, as it seems locked to 800x600, and you can't zoom in. What's more, there isn't any music to keep the game amusing. A nice touch includes the ability to create golf players you can then allow to play in contests on your courses. Aside from a few operational glitches, the game plays smoothly and offers enough options to keep the process entertaining. Overall, old-school Sims fans and golf fanatics may find Sid Meier's SimGolf a hole-in-one, so to speak.
