Let's Golf 2's online features score a double bogey [UPDATED x2]

Many gamers were justifiably excited about the release of Let’s Golf 2 this week. Let’s count the reasons: it’s a high-quality golf game and clone of Hot Shots Golf, the 3D graphics are pretty for a mobile title, and it proves that Gameloft continues to support Windows Phone, if only a tiny bit. Every new title Gameloft produces (even semi-B-list stuff) potentially brings us one step closer to getting their newer stuff like Dungeon Hunter III, we can only hope.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Let’s Golf 2 is extremely borked. I also hate saying ‘bork,’ but we’re a family-friendly site. While the game looks and plays great, its Xbox Live functionality is completely broken. Busted leaderboards are one thing, but we’re talking Achievements here! You can view them just fine and they pop in-game, but they aren’t associated with your GamerTag. That makes ‘em useless, sadly.

We’ve contacted Microsoft and Gameloft about Let’s Golf 2’s problems and will update when they respond or the game’s online features get fixed. In the meantime, Achievement hunters might want to hold off on playing this one. 

UPDATE: A Microsoft representative has informed us that they're aware of the Let's Golf 2 online issues and are actively working to resolve them.

UPDATE 2: We have a report in from Brian M., that the LIVE achievement and leaderboards are now working.

Thank you for the post. I hope Microsoft is reading this or at least testing out this problem. It's ridiculous that a Xbox live game comes out and doesn't link to your Xbox live account. You're a new platform, and you don't need this with games like this. Come on Microsoft get with game.

I thought MSFT has a mega QS for Xbox Live titles? I mean they delay updates for months, but let this pass? What's up there?

Just like Brain Challenge HD. I e-mailed them on that game and they said that there was nothing wrong. It does not surprise me that another one of GameLoft's titles has an issue with registering achievements.

this happens alot on xbox where the achievements work fine but are not added to the xbox.com list *where your acheivements are stored* as this happens quite a bit when dlc drops so microsoft most likely just has to add the list

You guys need to re-run a "broken achievements" post. Several games are still broken, including Revolution.

Achievements and Leaderboards are working for me. I waited for Gameloft to fix the issue before I purchased the game.

I like the game. Got a 85 gamerscore in no time! Gamertag = Humhead. Add me as a leaderboard friend.

Mine is working now.  Thank you Gameloft/MS for the fix.  I agree with PTK8ofBH that we need a fourm dedicated to broken games that need fixing.
