    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.

    The best way to describe Ribbit King is mind numbing. My main complaints are that there's too much dead time -- where you're forced to watch animations you've seen countless times again and again (there's no way to skip them) and the game is a lot more about luck than it is skill.
  2. This subtlety, off the wall humour and quaint fun makes Ribbit King multiplayer very compelling indeed.
  3. 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]
