Summary: I like the PS Move controls more than the standard but even then it’s a love/hate relationship at best and many, many holes will be restarted. That removes a lot of the fun from the game. With tighter controls this could be a stellar title.
Conclusion: Planet Minigolf was well received by many gamers when it first launched, and it really has only gotten better since then thanks to tweaks and the addition of Move support. If you're looking for a casual arcade golf game on the Move, give this one a serious look.
Excerpt: Planet Minigolf has set out the fill the void of the mysteriously absent golf game that should have been part of the Sports Champions disc included with the Playstation Move. The game was released before the Move was available to the public, but a free update along with a paid set of new holes make taking a second look at Planet Minigolf worthwhile. Both play options still exist with Planet Minigolf .
Conclusion: Though a little late to the party, Planet Minigolf is an enjoyable experience to be had whether you are heavily into the golf/minigolf culture or simply looking for a title to help direct your creative juices a flowing. Whether it is diverse cast of characters, 144 holes of gold, the ability to create and share your holes online or playing with a group of people, Planet Minigolf is an experience that will be around for a long time.
Excerpt: I'm a big fan of Zen Pinball . I love the idea of taking a well-known game to places its never been to. So, when I heard that Zen Studios was developing Planet MiniGolf , I was immediately intrigued. After spending some time with the game, I can't say that it's quite as well-designed as Zen Pinball . However, I can say with no reservations that it could have been. Still, it's not a bad first effort.
Excerpt: Miniature golf is a bit of an odd sport. Courses range from accurate, shrunken depictions of the links, to fantastic places where we find ourselves putting through castles and spaceships; some courses are immaculately cared for while others dilapidated, in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint. No matter the condition or themes, each and every course possess their own unique, distinct personality. There’s no doubt Planet Minigolf packs a ton of content.
Excerpt: Let’s face it, professional golf is about as fun as sticking cocktail sticks into your japseye. How do I know that? Let’s not go there, but let’s just assume that watching the PGA tour isn’t that much fun. What is fun though is turning golf on it’s head downsizing it onto a putting area and throwing away pretty much all of the rule book apart from score. My friends what we are talking about is mini-golf.
