IMG Reviews Fairway Collector's Edition

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Fairway Collector's Edition from Big Fish Games. The sequel to Fairway Solitaire features a combination of solitaire card and golf game mechanics, and includes a large variety of courses.
Here's an excerpt:
Unexpectedly enough, Fairway actually has a ‘storyline’ of sorts. That’s to say, the levels of the game are punctuated by cartoon movies of Gutsy McDivot, a nefarious gopher on a constant quest to make life difficult for the hapless golfer. The gopher is at war with the player, and is working to create some kind of anti-golfer doomsday weapon called The Golfinator. Of course, as with all cartoon villains, things always go wrong in amusing fashion, so there’s nothing to worry about really. McDivot isn’t restricted to the inter-level story scenes, though; he’s well integrated into the game itself. Sometimes he pops up on the course, and you can earn a little money, if you’re quick enough, by clicking him, Whack-a-Mole style. He pops up quite often in the Wild Shot minigames (of which more anon), and he even occasionally interferes with the in-game commentators (again, of which more anon). Although the gopher is an extraneous element that could have spoilt the game by being an intrusive irritation, McDivot manages to be entertaining rather than annoying… most of the time, at least!Check out the rest at the page below.
