The CONSTANT cut outs / resets in the middle of a game are frustrating at best If they fixed this would be a good game

Is It Any Good?

While purists will have issues with it, this mini-golf arcade game is almost as much fun as the real thing. In Golf Battle, you play mini-golf by using your finger to aim the ball and chose how hard to hit it. Played against other people online, "Classic Mode" has you trying to get your ball past all the jumps, turns, and moving barricades, and into the hole in fewer turns that your competition. But this also has a mode called "Rush," where the objective is to get the ball in the hole faster than your online rivals, no matter how many shots it takes. There's even a third mode, "Lucky Shot," where you take one shot in hopes of winning a prize, though you can only play this mode once a day. As much fun as all three may be, though, golf purists will have as many problems with this as, well, they do with mini-golf. Especially when they notice how inclined the ball is to fall into the hole when in real life, it would've popped out or sat on the edge. Meanwhile, mini-golf purists will take issue with how the courses don't have windmills or other cartoonish hazards, but do have such real golf-ish ones like sand traps. And everyone will probably get tired of how you progress very, very slowly. But if you're not such a stickler, and think it would be interesting to mix things up a bit, you'll have a swinging good time with Golf Battle.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
