Made for all the avid putt-putt golfers out there, Adrenaline Golf Online is the result of 6 months of hard work by its developer Eurocenter. Made with new technology in mind, Adrenaline Golf Online is the first application to take full advantage of the amazing graphics capabilities the new iPhone 3GS has to offer. Packed with 72 different beautifully rendered golf holes, this app is sure to entertain you for hours on end.
Upon opening Adrenaline Golf Online, you will have a choice between online multiplayer mode, classic mode, or one of the challenge modes. As the name suggests, Adrenaline Golf Online has a great online multiplayer setup. You can make your own avatar, and enter into games with people from all around the world. Whether it someone from from Brazil or California, you’ll find your very own golfing buddy.
Classic mode is just as it sounds; you can play on all 72 holes, and literally spend hours putting through the wind, grass, and…lava. The app even tracks your scores, so you can always try to get a better score the next game. The “Crazy Challenge” offers a game against yourself; you get 7 golf strokes to beat the course, and you get 3 strokes per completed hole. With all the golfing options available to you, there is a high replayability factor.
Adrenaline Golf Online offers great game play and fun; although it does lack some qualities that would make it a must-have game. One of the app’s faults is the putt itself; after swinging, you have to watch the golf ball come to a slow, rolling stop. It just breaks up the flow of the game a little too much. Eurocenter could also improve the in-game options; when you pause the game while golfing, there’s no option to turn off the music, switch your swing styles, or go online. You have to quit the game completely which is a bit frustrating.
Bottom Line: Adrenaline Golf Online offers great game play, excellent graphics, and awesome replay value. Even with its faults, Eurocenter have put together an impressive little package. Currently priced at $1.99, it’s a steal compared to other similar games. Whether you’re looking for something to do in the doctor’s waiting room, or are training for the putt-putt championships, you’ll find what you need in Adrenaline Golf Online.
Adrenaline Golf Online requires the iPhone OS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch.
