Set up a mini golf on Team17 and the Blacklight Interactive Multiplayer Golf game, Golf with Your Friends, is very different from moving from one class to another in your local mini-putt. The design of the scene allows both things that are possible on your middle mini golf course as well as far-off and original things that vary the gameplay. Although it is certainly possible to have mobile platforms and large sets on the best mini golf courses, get a kraken would be expensive in space and engineering, but the black holes and explosives on others scenes are completely out of the question. The design of the scene makes me want more courses and according to the appearance of the scene selection screen, there are still one to come.
Team17 and Blacklight Interactive offer more than 10 unique golf courses in Golf with Your Friends. A course makes you dive into a volcano and another makes you lob your bullet of candies and chocolate. Each card is very well designed and each of them offers unique challenges. The cards included are Forest, Haunted, Oasis, Space Station, Museum, Pirate Cove, Volcano, Ancient, Twilight, Candy Land, Worms and a recorded route similar to The Escapist series that Team17 has also published. The unique design with the Worms level (another IP Team17) showed me the conceptions of potential cards that could be added in the future beyond a simple ESCAPIST level. Really, I would like to see all kinds of people collaborate with this game to bring other crazy courses to the game. With the course of the spatial station, I thought that it would be to see a halo course that could Have elements of bending of reality similar to black holes in most courses. The remains of dinosaurs of the museum reminded me of a potential animal crossing course: New Horizons where you explore the island, leading to a course at the museum. Ancient shows Egyptian-inspired scenes, evoking the dreams of an Assassin s Creed course. Although my hopes are not too high for the extension of the Pinball FX level, it is nice that the design of the stage is so unlimited that such things are possible.
Golf courses with your friends are designed in such a way that it would not be possible to recreate in a real environment. Some of the dangers of the course include guns that pull your golf ball to a completely separate area to Pirate Cove and your bullet literally need a jet pack in some of the Worms stages. Haunted includes ghosts like a danger of scene and they will drop your ball into oblivion if you put it on their way. Although these intriguing scenic designs sometimes make it difficult to know what hole I m going, Team17 and Interactive Blacklight explained that. For a limited time on every step of each course, you can use a free camera to navigate the course from an air perspective. This will also allow you to know which hole you must aim by displaying a flag icon. Although I think this icon should not disappear without using the free camera, it is a crucial element for the most complex stages and it is a functionality that seems to be practically unused by the other online so far. Although I have seen some glitches, most of my mistakes were my fault, except on the Worms course that is total chaos and destruction that will be familiar with Worms fans.
Another key feature of golf with your friend is a power gauge that will be familiar to all those who played a golf game so far from Mario Golf to Rory McIlroy PGA Tour. Sometimes, when I play mini golf, I have trouble measuring my strength so that these types of meters make the experience even better than the real deal. The power gauge is particularly important in the hockey game mode, where hockey enthusiasts exchange the golf ball against a hockey washer, changing physics and accelerating things. The basketball game exchanges the hole against a basketball basket, forcing you to skip your ball in a perfect ark or bounce on the panel for a closer call. With the ability to customize each mode of play, the possibilities are endless for golf fans with your friends. With 11 courses and unlimited possibilities in several modes of play, I will devote a lot of hours to this game of mini golf.
Golf with your Friends is a great mini golf game that brings a friendly competition on mini golf courses. While you can dive countless hours in solo experiments on several game modes, the online game is where the game really shines. QuickPlay will put you in a game very quickly thanks to a decent matchmaking, but you can locate specific connections using the server browser. I found that I got windy of several lobbies that I joined but it s because people joined their friends and I can see why. After a few games online, I had the chance to meet good laughs that simply could not find a course. Some people do solo and others want to get online immediately, but I highly recommend playing every level in advance just not to look like a beginner putter.
Online, you can choose between several color options to customize your ball, but like other online mini-golf titles, you can unlock things such as a Flashy and Colorful Trail that follows your ball when you have it Send fairing from one class to another (sometimes literally). My choice of customization was a violet golf ball with a sombrero and a red candy track. This gave me strong vibrations of Cinco de Mayo and the playful nature of customization options reminded me of the beginnings of Rocket League. The online gameplay is very similar to the mobile game known as Golf Battle, only the multiplayer did not include Rush mode from what I could find and certainly would benefit. I noticed that Golf with Your Friends is part of the Game Pass subscription range on Xbox One and it is available for subscribers from the first day, some against which I competed online. Local multiplayer is ideal for challengeing your local friends, but be able to challenge any friend who has Game Pass a lot easier for filling a hall.
Golf with Your Friends is easy to take charge but hard to master, like all the best board games. As a person who is struggling to find putters big enough for me on mini golf courses and has a tenacious injury, golf with your friends is an excellent alternative to reality. With the focus on online multiplayer and the title being available from the first day on Game Pass, it s a great way for Team17 and Interactive BlackLight to gather more people during these difficult times. If you and your friends are subscribers to the Game Pass and you are looking for a relaxing game to become competitive, it s an easy download. While the soundtrack offers a unique and quiet track for each course, I found myself to listen to podcasts and YouTube videos instead, but music reminds minecraft tunes. The sound design also lacks the impact of things that explode the same sound for each putt, whatever the strength. The impact of each shot is similar to MINI PUTUT 2 of Addicting Games released in 2004. The design of the scene compensates for all that lacks in the sound design, but these are means for developers to improve the experience in the future.
