Gotta Get Golf!,
This review is from: Carnival Games: MiniGolf - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
We were excited to get our hands on this game as our boys, ages 5 and 6, really enjoy the original Wii Carnival. I think this Carnival is better suited to adults, and adults will find it more enjoyable. Graphics are improved. The game consists of courses (only three are unlocked at original play) that can be played in either single or multi-player mode. The three easy courses are opened for play first and include a farm theme, dinosaur theme (a house fave!) and a fairy tale theme. The courses are fun, and I find myself wishing they were real. :-) One of the more enjoyable aspects of game includes the fact there are mini-games in the holes when you enter a certain obstacle or area. In the farm area for example, heading into the hen house brings up a mini game of trying to catch eggs and coins in your basket. It's quite a hoot! The mini games aren't overly annoying, don't take too long (but long enough to grab a drink or snack), and break up the golf game. We've only had it for a short time and haven't unlocked the other courses, but the boys love spending their coins in the Pro Shop to purchase different golfing costumes. After the boys hit the sack, my hubby and I found ourselves challenging each other to a game or two. The only challenge we've had is getting the boys to understand how to increase or decrease the strength of their swing. It's a little awkward for the younger golfers at first, but they are getting it down. It doesn't stop them from enjoying the game or slow the game down. We can't wait to unlock the other courses! Have fun!
