There is no shortage of mini golf games out there, but I feel that Golf It does more than enough to make it stand out. Mini golf is always a fun time, no matter if you are at your local mini-golf place or if you are playing it virtually. It is a “sport” that 99/100 translates very well to video games and this is no exception. Please note that as I write this review the game is still technically in early access.
Courses For Days
For me, a game based around mini-golf has to have a decent selection of courses and that is the case here. As of writing 6 18-hole courses are on offer for you in Golf It and they are as you would expect. You have courses based on grass, pirates, sand, and a few more imaginative ones based on an ancient temple and a creepy graveyard. The graveyard one is by a mile my favorite course to play on with the pirate one being just behind it.
The Mouse In The House
I would say that most mini-golf games I have played tend to use a power meter when it comes to making your shot. This is a system that even the Tiger Woods (or whatever the heck they are called these days) have used over the years. Golf It is going for a different approach in that you control the whole game with your mouse. I will not lie; this does take a while to get used to and your first 10 or so matches will be a bust until you get it down. However, once you do it makes this a far more skill-based game.
The faster you move the mouse the stronger your shot will be. You still get to aim your shot, but getting the right power can be the real difference in making it past some of the tricky hazards that are on the courses. It is a system that I really like, but I will admit that it took me more than a few games to get the hang of this system.
Your Course, Your Club, Your Way!
Like most other modern mini-golf games, you have a golf course editor that you can play around with. You can mix assets from all of the available courses have which is a lot of fun. This is very easy to do and as I write this there are over 1000 player made courses for you to use. The game has many different options for you to tinker with, but the main one to talk about is the ball collision.
With ball collision turned off, when you hit your ball it is possible to hit another player's ball! This works in two ways; one it is funny as hell and ads to the humor and competitiveness. Two, it will make you very mad, frustrated, and want to beat up your friend!
I have had a great time with this game and I say that as someone who has played a ton of mini-golf games. Golf It is a great deal of fun and the perfect multiplayer game if you are looking for something simple and fun to play with your buddies. I like how the mouse-based shot system adds a tad more skill to the game and the course editor is a great way to have fun and ensure you have plenty of courses to play on.
