Leader Board Par 3
Confucius, he say. If it's a success, do a sequel. If that goes down a treat, do another one, bung 'em on a compilation and watch the dosh roll in. Access have followed this golden rule with the Leaderboard series of games, and if you're a golf simulation fan, then it's certainly one to go for.
Par 3 contains Leaderboard, Leaderboard Tournament and World Class Leaderboard, all resplendent in a 2 disc or 2 cassette package. Not to mention some astonishingly sexy packaging! Not only do you get 12 exciting course, but a free-standing hole guide, a score card (rather like those little bits of paper you used to get in Cluedo sets) and something called a club length chart, which is deeply fascinating, if a little incomprehensible.
Well, we've seen it all before certainly, but if you're one of the ones who's dreadfully far behind the rest of us, and you've not got your grubby little paws on a copy of any of the Leaderboard games, take a look at Par 3. These have got to be among the best golf simulations of all time, and all three of 'em at this price, it's well worth a butchers.
Jolly decent compilation, great guff for golf fans.
