Pub­lisher Mi­crosoft Game Stu­dios | De­vel­oper Indie Built | For­mat Xbox | Re­lease 2003

The orig­i­nal Xbox brought about a series of games un­der the ‘XSN Sports’ ban­ner, though it’s best not to dwell on NBA In­side Drive 2004 or NHL Ri­vals 2004. Time has been kin­der to the golf sim from the same stable. Al­ready a home com­puter favourite, Links’ tran­si­tion to con­sole de­liv­ered si­mul­ta­ne­ous on­line play, where you could com­pete with friends with­out hav­ing to watch them.

Three dif­fi­culty set­tings kept op­tions sim­ple, and it had a fo­cus on be­liev­abil­ity. That was highly re­garded by the se­ri­ous fan, which only made for ex­tra sad­ness when dev Indie Built was sold by Mi­crosoft be­fore be­ing closed.
