Gameloft's rather popular series of golf games called Let's Golf has had it's third installment, aptly named Let's Golf 3, released onto the Android Market for free. This is the second game from Gameloft to land on the Android Market for free with the first being GT Racing: Motor Academy.

There is actually a lot more to do in Let's Golf 3 than in previous installments into the series. It does feature multiplayer with up to four player going against each other on any of the courses available. An interesting features though is that if your friends are not online and you want to play against them, you can complete a course and send them a challenge to beat your score when they do log on. It also comes with live chat during multiplayer games and, if your device supports it, you can watch your opponents as they take their turns.
Overall Let's Golf 3 is a big improvement over the previous two games and the fact it's available on the Android Market for free is a steal. So if your device is supported, head on over to the Android Market and grab it, especially if you're a fan of the series itself.
Note: There is one downside to Let's Golf 3 and that is Gameloft has added a Stamina feature. What this means is you can only play a certain amount of holes per day, 10 to be exact as you get 10 stamina points and each hole costs 1 stamina point. It refreshes every day so you get another 10 stamina points or you can buy more stamina through in-game purchases.
Thanks to ME , Freeze and Joseph for the heads up.
