Images Overall Rating 2 out of 5 I thoroughly enjoyed the original Carnival Games, and I love to go mini-golfing, so naturally I expected to enjoy this title. . The kids really enjoy getting to change up their outfits and often have their person looking very, very silly. We often have a house full of neighborhood kids and everyone always enjoys playing this game. We rented for Christmas break and had to had this game!. I think a teenager could enjoy it if they were playing with their younger siblings, but it would probably not be the game of choice if they were playing Wii with other teenagers. This one is all luck so you can't compete.
The antics and reactions of the avatars you create are one of the surprizing features of the game. I never thought they could completely ruin something as simple in concept, pure, and enjoyable as mini-golf, but somehow, Cat Daddy Games has found a way. It can't be played like 18 holes of minigolf. Shoot for par in Adventure mode, master minigames in Challenge mode or sink a holeinone in Trick Shot. You have to play the Barker in order to get other courses opened. My husband and I also enjoy playing mini-golf with the kids. Although limited, they add an unexpected dimension.
The 1 and 2 buttons are used to change the camera view. What a disappointment it turned out to be. It is definately a favorite!! Playing 3 holes at a time is kind of a pain, and I really get tired of the players doing all the theatrics at the end of each hole. Some of us enjoy that part more than others. If you are looking for a long, strategic game then this isn't the one, but if you are just looking for fun --- you found it!! Although it's possible that you've played minigolf before, it's a sure thing that you've never played anything like Carnival Games: MiniGolf.
If unsure, go rent it and try it out first, but I think it is great. Great for my four and five year old! My 4 year old got it for his birthday and it turns out fun for the entire family. You push and hold the A button to initiate the swing, and move the remote like a golf club to build up power and release A to make contact. ActionOriented Game Play Battle pirate ships, dodge alligators, jive to jungle beats, soar through the air as a pterodactyl and shoot ghostly ghouls. Learning how to manuever thru the course and access the bonus features increases your potential to earn points redeemable for Avatar clothing and accessories. Win over 100 usable ingame prizes like custom clubs, Wacky Wearables double the amount in Carnival Games and special golf balls.
Its alittle tricky at first. Once you get everything open, it is still fun to play and earn the coins in order to purchase prizes from the pro shop. Unfortunately, what might have seemed like a good idea at the time has stumbled greatly in its execution, resulting in a mini-golf experience that is definitely lacking. We all enjoy it kids ages 8 and 11. There are several 'skill' shots available in which a hole-in-one is necessary to beat the hole.
Loads of Family Fun but not for serious gamers I bought this game strictly to have fun with my family and grandchildren. Just the right amount of difficulty. It is not for the serious gamer or golfer. You are also able to taunt each other by shaking your controller. All in all, I had hoped this game would be a few 18-hole mini-golf courses, but it's not, so I was a dissapointed.
I play with my son daily. We do wish there were more unlockables, more courses and more challanges. So it would only make sense to try and put the two together by expanding upon the putt-putt game featured within the original Cat Daddy Games title and release a full-fledged sequel, Carnival Games: Mini-Golf. What it does not have is the option to select easy, for the beginner or hard for the more advanced player. There are mini-games throughout the courses that add to the fun.
We wish that portion was multiplayer. Top performances will earn you more than 100 prizes to customize your 3D characters, from clothing items to golf equipment. Otherwise, we like the hidden games inside the holes and how you can find different accessories. I am a senior that loves playing Minigolf with my wife. Like finding the right hole out of 6 that will lead to the right one. Toss in its multiple game modes, including single and multiplayer campaigns supporting up to four players, extensive character customization and accessories and a golf bag full of minigames and you have the makings for a 'Hole' Lotta Fun! My son couldn't stop playing until he opened all of the courses and found all of the hidden surprises in each course.
Furthermore, the holes themselves are too gimmicky, filled with pinball-type obstacles, inane motion controlled minigames, and other completely extraneous content that takes away from the simple pleasure of playing a round of putt-putt. While okay for this game environment, 'razzing' your opponents can be taken the wrong way in real life situations. Carnival Games MiniGolf was built from the ground up to take full advantage of the unique capabilities of the Wii Remote. Some of these holes you just have to play over and over again to sink the ball with luck not skill. Carnival Games MiniGolf Hot on the heels of the million-selling original, Carnival Games: Mini-Golf comes exclusively to the Wii and is home to larger-than-life, theme park style miniature golf courses. There are 18 holes divided into 9 theme courses. This is a family favorite.
Built from the ground up as a Wii exclusive. Overall the holes can be fun and flusterating. Their father and I like playing it too! This game can be enjoyed as single player, single player vs. Make sure you chk out Carnival games made by same company. One Adventure hole that has a mimigame in it not golf. This game is a great game for all ages. The only negative we came across is that you cant really determine your back swing.
