Pebble Beach Golf Link

When all the silicon juice gets fired up, the Sega Saturn comes close to duplicating the visual and audio razzle-dazzle of a $20,000 coin-operated machine. Unfortunately, Pebble Beach Golf Links is an example of what 32 bits shouldn't do: namely, tack some bells and whistles onto a 16-bit game. Nothing in this uninspired golf simulation makes proper use of the Saturn's brawn. The flat graphics, imprecise controls, and cheesy background music are enough to make you want to turn off the machine and watch (shudder!) real golf. D
