Dangerous Golf Brings Powerups And Destruction To The Game

I have a strange relationship with golf. I've played a few games with friends over the years. It's enjoyable, but not something I go out of my way to do. Putt-putt, on the other hand, is something that I could do all day long. My relationship with video game versions of golf are similar. I can enjoy serious ones with friends, but give me something a little more silly, and I'll probably enjoy it a lot more. Which is exactly why I'm looking forward to Dangerous Golf.

Dangerous Golf is the brainchild of Three Fields Entertainment. You might not be familiar with the studio name, but the people behind it are veterans from Criterion Games, Ubisoft, and Disney. You might know them from the game Burnout, which was one of their creations. So what is Dangerous Golf? The team behind it describes it as being "as serious a true golf game as Burnout was a serious simulation of real driving."

The object of the game isn't to smoothly get the ball from the tee to the hole in as few shots as possible. Rather, you want to cause as much mayhem and destruction on your way to the hole as you can. The more destruction you cause, the more power-ups you can get.

That's right, a golf game with power-ups. A couple of these include the ability to manually steer the ball for a short time, or turning the ball into a fireball. There are over 100 holes to play on, both outdoor and inside. Look for it to hit the Xbox One, PS4, and PC (Steam) in May.
