Welcome to the World of Dangerous Golf. An arcade style sports game with a very explosive twist. Play through a variety of Indoor Courses – make a mess in the Kitchen, wreak havoc in a Palace, or cause chaos in a Castle and set fire to a Gas Station.
Rack up scores by causing as much damage and destruction as possible. Fire off a SmashBreaker. Blast the Ball into the Hole with an outrageous Trickshot.
Set off on a World Tour, on your own or co-operatively, or try Party Golf with up to 8 Players. You don’t need to wear loud trousers, funny shoes or a hat, or be a bore when you shout “Fore!” – this is golf for everyone. Brought to you from the founders of Criterion Games, the people behind Burnout and Black – this is Dangerous Golf.
A smashing game for all the family.
Dangerous Golf reminds me of PS3’s Pain, but is not as entertaining. [09/2016, p.57]
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.
A good idea, ruined by a very low longevity and a few camera problems. What a pity.
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.
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.
For the most part, however, it's a game with a lot of explosions and not that much excitement.
