This relatively straightforward golf game is designed to make good use of the technical superiority of the Game Boy Advance over its portable predecessors. Though based directly on Konami's Japanese GBA launch title JGTO Golf Master, the U.S. sports network branded ESPN Final Round Golf 2002 features more realistically styled players, instead of the big-head anime characters of the original title. Most other gameplay factors remain the same however, as this American release features 14 golfer characters and five different courses set around the world. Games can be played at day or night and in sunny or stormy weather. Course flybys offer an overview of the challenge ahead as the virtual golfer steps up to each tee. Multiplayer games are supported through a cable connection and up to four players can hit the links together.
