Reviews

PC Accelerator, January 1999

"All the additions would be completely worthless if the game did not play well, but this is where Links LS shines. With its excellent ball physics and tight control, the game simply feels and plays better than any competitor. Also its amazing number of options are more than just bullet points on a box, they all add to the realism and gameplay. So 1999 will be the same as the years before, with Links LS clearly the best golf game on the market."
