Re: Golf King - World Tour Arrives on iOS and Android on November 21 - Features, Trai

Dayum... I wish publishers were as interested in publishing games for consoles and PCs as they are mobile devices... this coming on the heels of the release of Golden Tee Golf Mobile last month!? Maybe I need to buy an iPad and an HDMI adapter for it so I can play new golf games on my 55" HGTV?

Hopefully people enjoy themselves with this and golden tee.

To me the graphics look like total garbage.

I just have no interest in something that looks like this in 2019/2020 and beyond.

This and Golden Tee have graphics that are probably about as good as they can get for mobile devices. I'd like to see what a Golden Tee that was built for the XBox One X or PS4 Pro would look like. It'd likely look better than this, but I still think it would still not have the more authentic look of TGC 2019 or Jack Nicklaus Perfect Golf.

I still think you have to have a large, high quality trackball to experience these clearly more arcade style oriented golf games the way the designers intended.

Totally agree..

I go to a local food joint that has a GoldenTee arcade system and it's tons of fun...but because of the trackball setup & form factor and casual nature of it all.

But hey - if people want to go for it on their phone, fire away.
Not my thing at all, particularly those gross graphics..

Ultimately, the input device matters a ton for some of these games I think - I agree with you.

They've got a Golden Tee game (2018 vintage) at the Buffalo Wild Wings near me and it gets a ton of play. It's funny, I can get a couple of my friends to play this at BWW, but they won't touch a more simulation oriented golf game on a computer or a console. I guess it's because it doesn't take a lot of familiarization and you can simply slam dunk your putts, but that's what puts me off the most about the game. The putting has so little feel required.

Still, even though the graphics look like a 2006 vintage Playstation 2 game, it's good for 15 minutes of easy entertainment, especially in a BWW environment.

That's my #1 complaint with it also..

The rest of the gameplay is arcade enjoyable, but the putting is ridiculous - even for an arcade game.
