3D Ultra Mini Golf Adventures

Excerpt: The release of 3D Ultra Mini Golf Adventures was a pleasant surprise for me. I was a big fan of the original 3D Ultra Mini Golf released by Sierra in the late ‘90s and had spent many enjoyable hours playing it with friends and family. This re-imagined version by Wanako games improves on some areas of the game while also losing some of the things that made the original great.
Summary: “3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures” is most definitely a no brainer. Don’t even consider buying this game unless you’re seriously into the concept of crazy minigolf. At a total price of $15 with the “Lost Island” add-on, you have to wonder what Sierra was thinking. The target audience isn’t large enough to justify the price. If the game ever drops in price to $5 for the core game and $2.50 for “Lost Island”, maybe it’ll be worth buying for a wider audience.
Pros: -3 full tournaments., -Local and internet multiplayer., -Crazy environments., -Good amount of length., -High replay value., -Insane physics in some of the environments.
Cons: -Graphics are extremely generic., -Everything sound related is generic., -Can be frustratingly difficult at times., -Not many people play on Xbox Live., -Price could be better., -Boring characters.
Conclusion: The course design is the real highlight within 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures , with gameplay that will frustrate until you figure out every detail of each hole, something that will take longer than most would care to spend with a XBLA game. The multiplayer gameplay is fun because of the power ups, but the single player portion will struggle to hold your attention.
