Xbox Live: Let's Golf 2 update comes in one over par

Let's Golf 2

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.

Under par is good though :P

captobie says:

I'm no golfer, but isn't one under par a good score?  Did you mean one over par?

Paul Acevedo says:

Whoops! Thanks for catching that.

Wow this sounds like at least a double bogey to me.  It's funny that the MS certification team sometimes hold up patches forever, yet they still miss something as egregious as the error you mentioned.

@#! it ... re-install.......  looks like im gona be playing allot of golf this winter.
 
 
did they fix the STROKE bug as well?????  when im at  -1(total score ) and i get a BOGGY on the next hole. instead of being at 0 ( on par )  they make it +1  

so like buggys count as double boggys.....  BOOO!!!

There is one play style that shows you your score only for each hole to see who gets eliminated on that hole. That's probably what you saw. I thought the same thing at first.

Luckily I don't care about achievments. So far this is the best Windows Phone game I've played between Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Hydro Thunder Go, and Shuffle Party.

I can't gwt Let's Golf 2 to install... The intall gets to around 28% and then stops. I keep hitting the retry button, which takes me back to the install, however afyer 5 mins the install fails again
