    Dangerous Golf combines the classic Burnout Crash mode as a nostalgia driven, explosive golf party game. Visually it’s very impressive, but the overall experience borders on glorified tech demo.

    Every aspect of its presentation and attitude is more rock-and-roll than traditional golf would ever tolerate. But it’s still, at its heart, golf: it’s a game of angles, velocity, and leisure. Dangerous Golf is a sports game, a puzzle game, and a blowin'-shit-up game, whipped into a smoothly designed blend that feels deeply satisfying.

    A good idea, ruined by a very low longevity and a few camera problems. What a pity.

    For the most part, however, it's a game with a lot of explosions and not that much excitement.

    Dangerous Golf reminds me of PS3’s Pain, but is not as entertaining. [09/2016, p.57]

    While Dangerous Golf offers up some fun and an addictive nature, the base concept isn't strong enough to sustain either for an extended period of time. It's something that can function in a diversionary sense as a side-mode in a larger game but crumbles in trying to hold up as a game of its own.

    A golf game developed by some of the people who brought us Burnout seemed like a great idea on paper, but it was poorly executed as globetrotting means nothing in this game, it isn’t very well optimized on PC, and its repetitive gameplay can get old real fast.

    This is a broken repetitive mess, and it's not that fun. The price is outrageous ($20, really?) And in addition to his, you get some bugs.This is a broken repetitive mess, and it's not that fun.

    A big letdown. The promise of a burnout crash / indoor golf hybrid was too good to ignore, yet the final product felt like it had been let outA big letdown. The promise of a burnout crash / indoor golf hybrid was too good to ignore, yet the final product felt like it had been let out way too early. The mechanics are iffy at best, with graphical bugs galore. I could look past the initial lack of keyboard support as I don't mind playing with a pad, but everything was so poor otherwise that seemed the least of the game's problems. Overall you just don't feel in control of what you're trying to achieve in Dangerous Golf and therefore the novelty wears thin very quickly. Expand

    It is not well-optimized, and you must use a controller to play it, and that the game does not explicitly tell you that when you buy the game.It is not well-optimized, and you must use a controller to play it, and that the game does not explicitly tell you that when you buy the game. Overall it is a fun game, but you will soon feel like you are doing the same thing over and over again, and the fun will become boring within an hour. Definitely an overpriced title, and I wish they spent their time making a spiritual successor to Burnout instead of this. Expand
