As a result, this is one of the most addictive PSP game to date. It may have taken a while to get here, but this was definitely worth waiting for. Open Tee is easy to fall in love with. Sometimes you'll shout for joy, other times you'll curse in frustration. But it's all Hot Shots golfing, and this is one of the most spectacular golfing games out there.[1] Similarly, CVG gave it an 8 out of 10, stating "Cute, colourful and extremely attractive to look at, the clue's in the title on this one and Everybody's Golf plays a near perfect round for general gamers, that could yet take big golf daddy Tiger Woods PGA Tour, to the cleaners".[2] Eurogamer gave it a similar 8 out of 10 score.[3]
