I don't know about you but I spent a fair bit of time when I was younger playing mini golf tour games on the computer. Some were great simple straightforward courses that could be replicated in the real world. Some crafted crazy courses that hardly made any sense but were insanely fun to play. Trying to find the best and most obscure way to get through a level was half the fun. What the Golf seems to have accepted this and built an entire game around that concept.
I gotta say that I was extremely excited with the concept of this game as I was looking into it before I actually got around to buying it. Maybe I looked into it too much and ruined a lot of the surprises for myself before I even started playing Whatever happened it turned out to be a little bit of a let down. Not an overall loss but some aspects of the game were definitely lacking for me.
To be clear this kind of game is something that I would normally get into so this isn’t just a matter of it being a play style that I don’t enjoy.
The game started off great with a couple holes of regular old fashioned mini golf. Then the first hole with a twist my character, not the ball, went flying instead. The proceeding holes for a few chuckles from me but generally I found them to be repetitive and lost their charm fairly quickly.
As I progressed further into the game it was much of the same. New twists that were entertaining shortly then just felt overused. Especially as each course has 3 challenges for the player to complete the completionist in me felt the need to complete all three challenges of each course.
One thing that I will say is that the game is not a total loss. Moving into the multiplayer mode the same game suddenly becomes a lot of fun! Although the number of strokes aren't counted and it's simply first to the hole it's extremely entertaining making that race to the end. For each hole you win you're building up your "lives" for the battle at the end. Being able to interact with the other player does make the whole thing a battle. Close race to the hole? Try and knock them off instead.
After having out the hours into the game I will say it is worth it for the multiplayer aspect of the game. The main play through is alright in terms of burning some time but I wouldn't base my purchase on that. If you find it on sale definitely grab it.
What the Golf is an interesting remake of the classic Mini golf games. With its unique challenges it offers a new way to play that all ends up feeling somewhat repetitive. The multiplayer aspect of the game is fantastically fun and worth paying the game for.
Playstation has come out with everyone's best interests at heart. Our wallets. With the free release of 10 games for both 2D and the VR experience you're sure to find something that interests you. Assuming that you play Playstation that is.
I spent a lot of time looking into what games were worth spending money on for my VR headset. After a lot of time looking into what was out there and testing out a bunch of free ones I landed on BeatSaber being my first real purchase.
Free games tend to be a large hit or miss market. There are some out there that are far too fun and should be charging something. While others aren’t worth the time it takes to download them. Bait is something that falls into the category of being worth the effort.
The initial hurdles of getting into the system can be frustrating. Honestly something that I found a little frustrating was attempting to read my WIFI password and enter it into the VR headset although I can only see where I am typing when I have the headset on. Aside from that the main struggles were just related to learning how to properly function with a headset on. The controls are very comfortable and easy to use making the process easier. After getting past that I got sucked into using the headset way way too much.
With the latest update to Stardew Valley there’s more reason than ever to get back into the game! Especially if you own it on console. SPLIT SCREEN CO-OP!!!!! This was a long time coming but even so I still am taken back by how much extra enjoyment is added to the game by playing it split screen with my partner.
Looking for a mobile game that not only has massive draw but will also get you out of the house? Something that you can play with others and even meet new people through? Ingress from Niantic is the game you're looking for.
There are a few games that are a major part of my childhood and Mario 64 is one of the top games of the “throwback” category to me. I remember spending hours trying to get through the simplest of tasks and I'm glad to say that as an adult the game is not so intimidating. Updated with smoother controls really elevates the gameplay to something a lot more enjoyable.
So a review of this game would be kinda absolutely useless based on the age of it. It’s been out forever so instead it lands as a Throwback to all those old games that bring back wonderful childhood memories. Much like Super Mario 64, I recall playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 obsessively as a child. Although it might not hold up as well as some games, the nostalgia is always nice.
It's finally here! Hyrule Warriors: age of calamity came out today. Did you wonder what happened during those 100 years that link was napping? Get your hands on Hyrule Warriors to see what went down. Not sure about the game? Grab the free demo on the Nintendo eShop and test it out for yourself.
Darkest Dungeon is captivating as soon as you start it up but will that maintain. With so many games out there some just aren't worth your time and for me Darkest dungeon falls into the latter category.
Looking for an open world game full of quests yet with the options to craft and farm? Yonder might be what you've been waiting for! With its mix of crafting elements to build up the world and exploration you'll find yourself scouring the island to save the inhabitants from the murk that is taking over this island.
