  1. This subtlety, off the wall humour and quaint fun makes Ribbit King multiplayer very compelling indeed.
  2. This is a very welcome diversion in what is becoming a hugely predictable current generation console range, and absolutely the sort of thing I can see everyone saying ‘can I have a go’ once they see it.
  3. After the novelty is gone, it's an adequate, if goofy, golf title with passable technical execution. [June 2004, p.123]
  4. A perfectly fun, surreal distraction - but only when playing with live frolfers. If you go at it alone, even the Frolf Referee's entertaining mannerisms won't make up for the frustration caused by the cheating A.I. [July 2004, p.96]
  5. After the novelty of watching purposely weird characters launch frogs through Mouse Trap-style obstacle courses wears off, which, admittedly, might take a little while, you're left with a simple, shallow game.
  6. The premise is priceless, but the game is so overly simplistic that it can't hold your attention for long. [July 2004, p.30]
  7. It's not the worst game we've played and it certainly looks pretty. But Ribbit King is tedious with a capital Tee. Anyone with a brain need not apply. [PSM2]

    Ribbit King initially caught my eye as it looked like a unique spin on the golf genre. It soon became clear however that winning relied almost completely on luck making multi-player games a complete bore as two identical shots result in totally different results. If you want a fun golf game pick up Everybody's Golf instead. Expand
