In our Let’s Golf 2 review, we praised the game’s smooth 3D graphics and wealth of content. Unfortunately, it suffered from two broken Achievements, and nobody likes those. Gameloft had a great chance to fix them with this week’s title update. Did they succeed?
Let’s Golf 2 version 1.3 update (listed as version 1.2 in-game)
- ‘Junior Golfer’ Achievement now attainable on fresh installs
Let’s look at that. The ‘Junior Golfer’ Achievement is for finishing your first mission in Career Mode – i.e. completing a single event. It can now be obtained, but existing players will need to reinstall the game and lose all of their progress. Anyone who hasn’t unlocked ‘Wise One’ for maxing out a character will probably want to hold off on the reinstall. If only the developers had considered everyone who already bought the game when instituting the fix…
Even worse, the ‘Secret Code Achievement remains unobtainable. In the iOS version, players have to enter a special code in the name entry screen in order to unlock the ninth character. The Windows Phone version has no name entry screen, so the Achievement is just a big, baffling error on the part of the developers and Microsoft certification team.
Let’s Golf 2 is a fantastic golf game mired only by Achievement problems. The version 1.3 update (skipping versions 1.1 and 1.2 even though it contains only a single minor fix) is a step in the right direction, but it fails to make everything right. Perhaps Gameloft will issue another update (version 1.6?) in the future.
Let’s Golf 2 costs $4.99 and there is a free trial. Pick it up here on the Marketplace.
