Nothing can touch Nintendo’s super plumber. Forget even about the standard platform games. Mario’s alternative games (which are getting to the point where the next release will be beyond overkill) are still better than any of the other games from similar genres. Almost twenty years in, nobody can touch the Mario Kart series. Same goes for mini-game compilations and cartoony sports games. Golf is another story. Hot Shots Golf has been a stellar series for the various Sony systems throughout the years that, while very similar to the Mario Golf series, stands on its own. Sony’s Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 for the Playstation Portable carries out this tradition. In fact, not only is it one of the best golf games on the system but it is one of the best golf games on all systems.
