I remember playing some of the early golf games way back on the Commodore 64 with classics like Leaderboard and actually having proper golf lessons when I was young, but one thing I can always remember fondy was playing crazy golf on family holidays every Summer. It’s that quickfire version of the game that seems to have a more widespread appeal to gamers and certain seems to be far better represented on the PS Vita and this PSM title seems to capture the game remarkably well…
The game certainly looks the part with the holes themselves and surrounding scenery fully rendered in 3D making the game look incredibly attractive. The courses vary in difficulty but at no time is this difficulty hampered by the controls which are a joy to use which I’ve always felt are vital with any sports game – if the controls are intuitive then the game itself can appeal to even the most casual of sports fans and this works wonderfully here. What really makes this shine is the longevity. The easier course offers 18 holes which get progressively harder from the simple ones that make grabbing a hole-in-one child’s play to the more complex with jumps, water hazzards and more.
Beyond that, there are three more courses offering a total of 72 holes on play on with up to four players providing a massive amount of social play time. While there’s no online option, it’s a game that you’ll keep coming back to, especially at the price!
