PlayStation Network Review: Planet MinigolfI wanted to enjoy Planet Minigolf, I really did. I’m a big minigolf fan and I’ve really enjoyed other minigolf videogames from days past. It’s unfortunate that Zen Studios, the creators of Zen Pinball, chose to incorporate a lousy camera system, wonky power ups, and impossible hole setups to effectively destroy any fun that could be had from Planet Minigolf. สล็อตเว็บตรงไม่ผ่านเอเย่นต์ First I would like to address the camera system. In a minigolf game, it’s important to be able to view the holes and plan your method of attack. Planet Minigolf effectively makes this a game of trial and error. The hole is marked only with a single flag, and the camera never seems to move intuitively when in free mode. When actually putting, player’s get to enjoy a host of camera glitches, many of them incredibly annoying. Want to see onlookers get cut in half? Have no desire for meaningful camera angles when putting? It’s all here, and in spades. My favorite glitch occurs when the character freaks out, and is unable to decide which side of the ball to put from, ending with them repeatedly switch sides(instantly and with no animation) until they finally end up actually putting the ball. The power-up system isn’t much better. Unfortunately, it can be bracketed as part of the minigame, which is sometimes essential. Most power-ups are wildly impractical. Sure, you might be able to make a seemingly huge ball disappear, or slightly slow down time or make it roll into the hole. But none of it is going to be particularly useful or helpful. Many power-ups only slow down the ball launching process, making it that much harder to perform them. There are also the twilight power-ups that occasionally appear in the middle of an uncomplicated power-up type hole, which are gorgeously done. The actual checkout process to get a new ball is the absolute worst. You’re forced to wait around twenty minutes for the ball to be sent to you via e-mail. You’re then asked to click a bunch of buttons until the ball arrives at your game window. When it arrives, you’re then asked to place the ball on the area you want it to land. There is then a row of ten more buttons to click until the ball arrives at its destination. Unfortunately, these buttons are all logic to do things like drop the ball to a specific location, set the angle of the ball, etc. Unless you’re willing to rely on some magical muscle to do all of the stuff, you’ll have a much better experience outside of a ball game. My only other beef with the game would be the frequent and somewhat random deaths. Often when you die you’re dropped back to the same spot from the last checkpoint, and a few times when that fail, it’s merely a matter of returning to that spot and watching your ball slowly move over the course of the hole. Having said that, the ball does sometimes fall in its Permanent Blackout state, in which the ball cannot be shot or knocked out of bounds, and will start rolling the entire length of the hole or bounce any distance away from the area. When this happens, it’s an incredibly rewarding experience to watch the ball slowly disappear, only to reappear in a different location later on. Another shortcoming (which Game Dev Tycoon exploits in spades) is the lack of environments. The lack of a variety in the ball physics and ball placement methods definitely detracts from the experience. However, each ball is its own little world, and the maintenance theme is maintained pretty well through the various goals that you must accomplish. Too bad we will probably never see an actual ” Continuing Ball Game” anytime soon… ometry and Graphics Where Zuma Deluxe scores with interface and physics, it also score huge points in those other areas.Constantly struck by how gorgeous the graphics are, I couldn’t stop playing through the game. I was in awe watching the characters and scenes beautifully unfold before my eyes. The only downside (which isn’t a big deal) is the sound effects could use more variety. Final verdict: APB is a beautiful and unique gaming experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t played an Area 5 before, and even if you have, it’s worth playing the Hell out of.
