Let’s Golf 3 HD released free for Android (video review)

October 12, 2011

UPDATE: looks like Gameloft temporarily removed Let’s Golf 3 HD from the Android Market. We’re not sure why, but hopefully it will be back up soon, and we’ll update this post when that happens. Enjoy the review in the meantime.

If you’re a fan of golf games, you’ll be pumped to hear that Gameloft released Let’s Golf 3 HD to the Android Market. It features fantastic graphics, fun gameplay and best of all, it’s free! Well, it’s sort of free.

In order to freely play through various holes, you’ll need to rely on what’s called the energy point system. One energy point equals one hole of golf, and you can either earn those points for free or purchase them through the Android Market. How do you earn free points? Simply put, you just wait. For every hour that you don’t play the game, you regain one energy point and you can hold up to a maximum of five points at a time (that’s good for five holes). Keep in mind the game does not have to be left open in order to earn these points, as you can simply close the game out and use your smartphone or tablet however you please while those points accumulate in the background. Then you can come back and play a few holes.

So while the energy point system can be somewhat annoying for hardcore gamers who want to play for hours in one sitting, it’s really not a bad deal for casual gamers. Gameloft games are usually rather expensive, so this free method is a nice change of pace as long as you’re willing to jump through some hoops.
