Graphics: 3.5/5 Mini Golf has meh graphics. The colors look nice and clear on the iPod Video's screen, but the graphics look like nothing more than a cell phone game. The animations are REALLY bad; especially one of the courses where there is a bear on top of a ball upside down. Wtf?
Sound: 3/5 Really pretty decent for the little amount there is. Each course ( 3 in all ) has its own tune. It gets repetetive, but like all iPod games, you can listen to your music on your iPod while playing.
Control: 4.25/5 This is the best it will get on the iPod for a golf game. It is somewhat hard to aim the ball where you want to, because as you get it where you want and you take your finger off, the aimer moves a bit. A little frustrating, but it isn't too bad. It all works well.
Fun: 4.25/5 Mini Golf is pretty much what you think it would be. Quick injections of putt-putt action. There are 54 holes total ( 18 on each course ), and it is really quite fun. There is also a Play n' Pass mode in which you can play with more than one person. There is also a stat-tracker, and practice mode. Although the game is extremely easy, and fan of flash putt-putt games will love this game. It doesn't last long at all, but for $5, it's a deal.
