100ft Robot Golf
Top Critic Average
100ft Robot Golf lives up to the hilarity of its premise in every way, except when it has to be a golf game.
I feel bad about panning a game that I adore in principle -- it’s scrappy and unabashedly enthusiastic, which historically has been my jam -- so let me close by saying I appreciate where No Goblin is coming from. 100ft Robot Golf the idea is commendable, but 100ft Robot Golf the video game is a lot harder to appreciate.
If you fancy a golf game as far away from simulation as possible then this is most definitely for you. It isn’t the smartest or the sharpest game on the market, but it still grabs you despite its flaws.
100ft Robot Golf delivers a winning combination of sci-fi anime and nicely playable golf. It won't win any awards for production values, but it's such a fun solo experience and manic laugh in multiplayer that you'll be happy to look past that. Importantly for PlayStation VR owners, piloting a 100ft Robot is a joy in virtual reality mode – but the core gameplay works fine in the standard not-as-cool regular mode.
A decent party game that's fun with friends, 100ft Robot Golf is bonkers. It's not always fun though, with slow robots, poor VR support and short play time.
100ft Robot Golf is an ambitious title that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s far better due to this, and while it’s not the most polished golf you can play on PS4, it’s certainly the most fun. I do have questions about the game’s longevity (as there are only 36 holes), but the unique gameplay is the draw right now. Hopefully more courses will be released as DLC, but until then I’ll be causing destruction while I golf in an underwater city and on the moon.
100ft Robot Golf is a uniquely stylized way of playing golf. I dig the use of anime, giant robots and a traditional golf game. I can’t see myself playing through the campaign more than once, even if I need to collect more medals to unlock the remaining items. The option of playing the game with PlayStation VR is a decent touch, but the game is entirely serviceable without it.
100ft Robot Golf is a good laugh and a solid game. If an anime spoof is up your alley you owe it to yourself to check this one out, as does anybody looking for a good multiplayer bash for nights when mates are around having a few beers. The golf may be simple but there is fun to be had, just don’t expect much staying power for solo sessions.
100ft Robot Golf is charming and has its fair share of amusing moments.
While the game offers online capability, all attempts to play have failed in the days since release. It's unclear whether online matchmaking is broken or whether there simply aren't others searching to play online. Either scenario essentially negates online as a feature, which is unfortunate because it would likely be chaotic fun and would extend the longevity of the title.
A great concept that has been executed dreadfully. Not funny enough to be a good parody, not detailed enough for a good simulation. It’s neither funny enough to be amusing or serious enough to be engaging and ultimately never rises above mediocrity.
"In the end the gameplay isn't great. It's up to you and your compensation to pull through on that regard. However, every other aspect of 100ft Robot Golf is excellent. Largely thanks to the campy, cheesy story and hilarious dialogue. Which I found more than enticing to deal with the title's gameplay shortcomings. It's just a shame that once the plot ends, you basically have a broken golf game. I'm sure patches and fixes will improve everything considerably but at the moment all we have here is an arcade-like golf game failing to reach the plateaus it strived for."
The animation may be far from the slickest and the game is definitely more fun when against others, but there’s plenty that 100ft Robot Golf does right. The fact it allows you to play it on PlayStation VR or on a normal screen is great and there’s a charm to its goofy style.
