Everybody\'s Golf 5

Everybody's Golf 5 is a golf video game developed by Clap Hanz/SCEI and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3. It is part of the extremely popular Everybody's Golf series and was released in Japan on 26 July 2007, close to the 10th anniversary of the series debut on the PlayStation. Additionally, the game was sold in bundle deals with the PlayStation 3 in Japan.

A demo was made available on the Japanese PlayStation Network in May 2007. The European localised demo was made available on the Australian PlayStation Network on 14 February 2008. The demo arrived in North America on 26 June 2008.

The game was released in North America on 18 March 2008 and Europe on 28 March 2008. The North American release has mild censorship, replacing the panties of the female players with biking shorts.

Critical reaction to the game has been mostly positive, with the game holding a rating of 81 out of 100 on Metacritic. Chris Roper of IGN gave the game a score of 8.9 out of ten, writing: "Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds is a tremendously fun golf game, one that should appease either casual or hardcore golf fans. It's an arcadey approach to the sport, for sure, but there's still a good deal of depth in the game that'll give veteran players plenty to work with. There could have been more courses, and the lack of voice support online is somewhat disappointing, but the overall package is a ton of fun and definitely worth picking up."

Aaron Thomas of GameSpot gave a score of 7.5 out of ten, writing: "The Hot Shots Golf series has changed very little during the past 10 years, but there's no question that while still good, this is a franchise in need of a shot in the arm -- or at the very least, more courses. But that said, the new swing and robust online play freshen things up just enough to make it worth getting a tee time with Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds." Reviewing the Japanese version, Everybody's Golf 5, Dave McCarthy of Eurogamer gave the game a score of 8.0 out of 10, writing: "In spite of the fact that all you're doing is pressing a button three times, over and over again, it never gets boring. It would probably be too controversial to call it the best golf game, or the best PS3 game. But on both counts it's a remarkably close call."
