    This game was a blast for our entire family from the 5 year old boy to the 65 year old grandma. She even stayed up all night playing just to beat certain areas. We really have fun with this game and the kids really love it. Part of the fun is the challenge of being able to figure out just how to hit certain shots so they go the right way.

    Just not a very well thought out game. game play is ok the first 10 or so times but beyond that is tedious and boring.

The main idea of the game is similar to other golf games out there for the Wii however, there are a lot more obstacles to surpass. The main flaw with the game is that the core game-play is rather dull. The game is okay for the first few times or so but, eventually you realise that this barely an enjoyable game. The controls don't work that well either meaning it will be a drag to actually complete the game. Carnival Games: Mini Golf just wasn't thought out very well and this is a game I would recommend unless you want to waste your money. Expand

  1. The game looks nice, albeit a little GameCube-y, but unfortunately, the pretty pictures and cute animations of the various course contraptions don't help what's really wrong with the game, namely the cruddy swing mechanics.
  2. While the graphics and hole designs are inviting, the frustrations caused by the controls and Barker himself successfully put a damper on the entire experience.

    The sound in Carnival Games Mini Golf is disjointed and weird.
