This is a game I have seen a lot of people playing recently especially on YouTube, I have never thought of playing a minigolf game but I had heard good things about this game that I had to give it a try. Anyway, it is time for a review.
Here is my video review of Golf With Your Friends
The isn’t a story in this game as it is just a simple game that allows you to play on 5 different maps and be able to play mini golf. Not a lot needs to be explained about this, you are able to make different parts of the game more interesting though. By this I mean you are able to allow a setting that allows jumping meaning you can skip whole parts of the map, if you are going to have jumping included in the game then you can control how weak or strong the gravity is meaning jumps can be really short or you can literally skip the entire map and dunk your golf ball right in the hole.
The game itself looks great, everything is bright and colourful, this just makes the whole game a lot more attractive and make people want to play the game. There are two maps that aren’t as bright as the other but that is because they are set at night and even then twilight is a great looking map that I had a lot of fun playing through. However the one map I hate with a passion is haunted, this is because it just isn’t fun to play. The map doesn’t seem to be up to standard compared to the other as you cant really see where you are going, the spider web ramps look like a mass of cotton wool so you aren’t able to tell which way the ramp is going to go unless you waste a stroke trying to find out. If this game came without haunted as a map it would get a high rating.
The music in the game reminds me a lot of elevator music, this is sort of a good and a bad thing, it is a good thing because it allows you to relax and be able to make better shots. However when it is time to play multiplayer then I don’t want to be listening to something soft and relaxing I want something to make me pumped and make me want to beat the other players.
The multiplayer in this game is actually very enjoyable and makes you wonder why they even included a single player mode to begin with. There doesn’t seem to be any sort of problem with lag or a bad server, well whenever I was playing it didn’t.
This game is fun and enjoyable but only in multiplayer mode, if you are planning on just playing the single player mode then don’t bother it get boring very quickly and I felt like giving up a few times while playing the maps as I was that bored. But for £5 you cant really go wrong.
