Quirky robot VR golf bogeys more than it lands on the green.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
No positive, negative messages.
Positive Role Models
No main character, role models; players cause quite a bit of destruction during play.
Ease of Play
Controls for each robot, their unique skills different, will take time to get used to, especially without in-game tutorials; VR version harder to play than regular PS4 version.
Violence & Scariness
Some environmental destruction, including buildings, trees.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that 100ft Robot Golf is a downloadable golf game. It pits huge robots who like to compete in a round of golf against others, whether they're computer-controlled opponents or friends beside you or over the internet, which could expose players to inappropriate comments. Despite some destruction, like smashing through buildings, there isn't any controversial content in this game. Parents should also be aware that virtual reality equipment makers don't recommend VR experiences for kids under 12 due to the potential impact the technology may have on younger players' physiological development.

What’s It About?
In 100FT ROBOT GOLF, you play a giant robot who competes against others in arcade golf. Yes, that's about it. While swinging your way through the Robot Golf Tour Circuit, up to four players can play in cities, mountains, and underwater and even on orbiting moons. That happens whether you're tackling the story-based campaign against computer-controlled robots (and with anime cut scene sequences), online against friends, or with someone beside you on the sofa (via split-screen) in real time or turn-based play. Golfers will smash through any obstacles that stand in their way, such as skyscrapers, to clear a path to the hole.
Is It Any Good?
This quirky sports game might appeal to players looking for a silly spin on golf, but it's also full of frustration that holds it back. While you can't change your clubs, you could leave a trail of annihilation behind you -- or use your destructive abilities to trip up competing golfers by creating obstacles for them. The humor is mostly funny and is carried across mostly by cheeky dialogue. There also are a few solo and multiplayer modes to choose from, which is good.
But the game has some frustrating elements, such as awkward angles while you're piloting the golfer -- especially in VR mode, which could make the golf game tedious. Additionally, you can't play multiplayer in VR mode, and in the story mode, the artificial intelligence of the other golfing robots isn't very smart. The graphics are subpar, and the gameplay doesn't evolve much over time. But it's hard to deny the charm and accessibility of this straightforward game built on a zany premise. It works for the most part, and it's fun, so fans of golf games might opt for this fantastic spin on the sport, plus PlayStation VR owners looking for something cheap and cheery might have a few good weeks of play with this one.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about sports. Does the addition of robots to the notoriously difficult game of golf help or hurt the sport itself? Why do you think the designers choose to include robots over monsters, aliens, or other characters?
Talk about perseverance. Because it can be hard to master golf and golf courses, why is it important to keep trying again and again to improve your score? Why should you not give up if you make bad shots?
