Zen Studios is a very talented team when considering great detail and eye-popping graphics. Planet Minigolf and Pinball FX are just a few examples, and now there’s a new plethora of courses to play, including for the first-time cross-sharing in Infinite Minigolf.
With over 2000 courses to choose from (at the time of this review), Infinite Minigolf promises some of the highest replay value possible, again something Zen Studios is well known for. There are three environments to choose rom after creating your avatar: Giant Home, Nightmare’s Mansion and Santa’s Factory. In each session you can choose between tournaments, Quick Play and Course Creator/Editor.
Each course tournament is run by Simon, Finch Winston and Quentin. But to be honest the real creator here is you, the player. In regards to creation and editing there are so many ways to build your own course. And for those with little patience, worry not as there is already thousands of courses to choose from.
Creativity is everything in Infinite Minigolf as there are so many ways to build your course with power-ups and contraptions. Most importantly it is the ultimate decision on who wins each course, not the number of putts. The power ups are vital just as each gem when collected as a whole can be worth up to 2,000 points. Yes, it may be worth taking a detour to the hole. As you complete courses and win tournaments you can earn in-game currency allowing you to buy card packs which includes additional perks and character upgrades.
Though Infinite Minigolf can be played online with up to 8 players, you can keep couch play in mind as well as a fun party time for friends.
