Worms Crazy Golf is as exactly as it sounds. Golfing worms and they're crazy. My first impression was that this was going to be just another tepid attempt at creating a game that tried to bring entertainment to golf. However, after my first swing, I was hooked. Through a mixture of mini-games, bonus tasks and hilarious animations, this game is not only entertaining, but very funny to watch.
The primary goal of the game is the same as real golf in that the player wants to take the least amount of strokes possible on the way to getting the ball in the hole. What makes the game interesting is how the ball gets there. Such obstacles as enormous cliffs, mountains, water hazards and even self-destructing worms lace levels like Britannia making it difficult to get the ball in the hole. Oh, and watch out for the sheep.
There is single player and multiplayer modes along with career, challenges and mini-games throughout. One of the funnest was hitting as many sheep as possible in the least amount of time. Once they're hit, they fly away and the gamer is rewarded with bonus points.
The game mechanics are a bit tricky at first with swinging being the most difficult part, just like in real life. The player swings the club by tapping and holding the golfball in the lower righthand side until the meter hits the sweet spot, which is indicated by two red bars. The player needs to aim by tapping and sliding the angle of the shot with the sight or the red circle with a dot in the middle. A few different clubs such as wood, iron, wedge and putter are thrown in and can be changed at anytime depending on the shot.
Worms Crazy Golf is an all-in-one entertainment pack that includes exciting gameplay, exploding worms and some very difficult obstacles to overcome on the way to a hole in one. This game is fun for golfers and non-golfers who don't mind adding a few strokes onto their game to explore the course and unlock a few surprises.
