  1. Just make sure you turn the bloody sound off. [Issue#20, p.116]

    While there are no parties, corn dogs and tokens in 3D Ultra Mini Golf Adventures, Sierra's new XBLA title does a nice job of creating wacky holes that are a 10-year-old course designer's dream.
  3. While fun, the single-player mode is terribly brief. I played through all three courses a couple of times and found the hole-in-one technique for most holes in well under three hours.
  4. A solid enough minigolf game; good for a laugh. [June 2007, p.95]

    A very good game. Wither you are tired of playing Tiger Woods, or you just miss going to the mini golf greens this one is sure to please. It even has replay ability since you can play it online with friends, or strangers which ever you prefer.
  6. It doesn't really raise the bar or set a new standard, doesn't offer anything I haven't seen before, and is unlikely to make any converts. Considering who made it, I guess we can all just be happy that it actually works.

    There needs to be more single player for the game, because Tournament just isn’t enough. If you have no Live and no friends, the single player will tire so quickly.

    This game is massively fun. I always found golf videogames lame but putt-putt games great (that's just me) and this is the best one I've ever played. I can see it getting old overtime but as of right now the game is a total blast. If you liked the demo then you have to buy the game. It's so much fun to use one of the "power-ups" on somebody on xbox live and hear them flip out about it. Kinda strange but I've been playing more of this then GoW and Rainbow6, simply because it's easy to get back into and blow an hour on. Recommended, for sure. Expand

    A lack of options means that 3D MiniGolf Adventures won't hold much appeal for the single player but when played with a group of friends it comes alive. Mostly striking just the right balance between skill and luck it can be enjoyed by gamers all of ages and abilities whilst also allowing for the better players to generally come out on top.

    There is the odd glitch here and there and it would have been nice had their been more than two courses (a third is available to download for a small cost) but six years later it is still a game I return to on occasion for a but of multiplayer fun.

    Somehow this game failed on both of the key criteria for a fun mini-golf game - control and course design. The former is frustratingly inconsistent and the latter is uninspired to the point of being outdone 20 years ago. Sure, it's only 800 points ($10), but it's not worth $3. Save your money. Expand
