All in all Carnival Games: Mini-Golf is a fun game, just not the type of game that will please everyone. Gamers looking for a real miniature golf experience with tons of courses and a tournament mode will need to keep looking. Gamers looking for another game to play for hours on end with their friends might find that Mini-Golf may fit the bill. If the game would have included some more holes, a better motion-sensing control scheme and an overhead camera angle of the holes this would be an easy recommendation to everyone.

Ganz so schlecht wie Carnival: Die Jahrmarkt-Party ist der Mini-Golf-Ableger nicht geworden, er hätte jedoch noch viel besser werden können, wäre da nicht das Schwung-System. Das registrierte die Bewegungen beim Testen nur selten korrekt, was den Spielspaß um einiges herunterzieht. Schade, denn die Welten sind abwechslungsreich, wenn auch etwas kurz mit nur 27 Kursen ausgefallen. Insgesamt fehlt auch ein Kurs-Modus, die Löcher lassen sich nämlich nur einzeln und nicht nacheinander in Turnieren spielen. Wer auf der Suche nach einem weiteren Golf-Spiel neben WiiSports und Tiger Woods ist, kann für 30€ ruhig zugreifen, die Mängel sollten einem allerdings im Hinterkopf bleiben.

Carnival Games: Mini-Golf just whets your appetite for a real minigolf game that makes proper use of the motion-sensing controls of the Wii Remote. The Wii needs a better and more competent treatment of minigolf that deals with the real sport, minus all the gimmicky junk that gets between you and your putter.

When we look back at other casual golf games on Wii, we can see where Carnival Games Mini Golf goes terribly wrong. In Wii Sports Golf, for example, skill actually comes into play, while in Carnival Games players are forced to rely more on trial and error, and random luck. Wii Sports Golf rewards the player with the personal satisfaction of doing well, and the knowledge that they're improving, while Carnival Games uses pointless collecting to try to give some small sense of accomplishment where there is none. It's impossible to give that feeling when players have so little control over their own performance. If you're looking for a golf game to play on Wii, there are plenty to choose from. This one's definitely not worth the price of admission.

Had Mini Golf offered traditional 18-hole mini-golf courses, this would have been a slam-dunk best seller. Take-Two really missed the boat with this one.
