CLUB SAND WEDGE
A wandering archaeologist introduces a welcome variation on Golf Story’s mechanical template. First he issues you with a scanner so you can hunt down your quarry, and then asks you to unearth it using your appropriately named digging wedge. This involves a short minigame of timed button presses, hitting a zone that gets smaller as you progress. Hardly world-changing stuff, but the rewards are worth it, and it’s at least something different to the three-shot power system that forms the meat of the game – and most of its bones, too.
