    Default Infinete Minigolf needs to be sorted out quick. Major issues !!!

    I bought and downloaded Infinite Minigolf on PS4 2 hours ago.
    And from the outset..the game is good. BUT there are several major flaws with it that will make the player Base drop quickly if not adressed ,and that soon.

    1. Since this game have more features to it (powerups) than normal Minigolf there SHOULD be a tutorial implemented.
    In general VERY little is properly explained in this game. Where a minigolf game should be easy to pick up..This game has powerups..and buttons to do this and do that....making it,not just pick up and play,like most minigolf games.

    2.There should defenately be a choise to play the game with or without powerups,from start. The powerups have never been the reason why Minigolf is popular from the outset. It's the simplicity of the games that makes anyone able to play it.

    3. The fixed "free camera view" is a disaster. I mean. .seriously..WHO decided that having an overview with NO way of chose to have freelook at the course,was a good idea !!??
    Have you guys EVER seen a Golf game where the player is restricted to a certain view/views when exploring the layout of the Golf course ???
    Of course you have not.....
    When you are playing Minigolf its even more important to have full freedom to look,zoom in..out and in general get a GOOD idea of obstacles and corners or other hazards that might block/alter the balls movement.
    In this game you only get a kind of overview with some freedom to move the camera angle.

    4. Playing online against say..7 other players is no fun at all. Everybody just hit theire ball..and of they go. It's only when you yourself reach the hole that the score of all players are shown...
    No exitement or feeling of being in a competition....
    The way it should have been done is..that 1 player hit he's or her ball when it stops.. Then next one does the same. Then when all players have done it..the first player hit he's ball again. That way everybody can see how they fare against the others. Making it exiting and a competition.
    One have to have a say..15-20 sec time limit pr player..to have a flow in the game.

    It's almost like the game have been made By people who have very little experience in making a game like this...
    And ends up with a half-baked game that have the basics but too many issues to realy be easy to pick up and fun.
    Why these issues was not sorted out be game testing is a mystery to me.
    And should,after reading my post be that to you too.

    I hope my post wil be of help to better this game and it needs to be done QUICK..or this game is gonna be deserted online and forgotten by PS4 users...

    It's strange that the guy with issues with the Switch version gets a reply, while fthe issues I mentioned don't get replied to at all....

    Make me guess the developers are avare of all these issues and hope people still buy the game.....

    Hey Rotravi, haven't you received my email? I think I sent it last Friday!

    We have taken your criticism to heart and talk about your points a lot with the developers since you posted them. The Switch version works pretty much the same like PS4 so you could voice your suggestions playing on that platform as well.

    Thanks for the detailed review and your opinions!

    Default Hope for the future...

    Thank you for the reply. Yes I want the best for the game. But as I mentioned,these issues HAVE to be sorted quickly. And "if we can implement them" is Not an option. The game is in such a bad state regarding playability,that if I decided, i would pull it from being for sale and fix every issue and test it out on players before relaunching it again. I am very surprised that the game was launched in the state it is in. It's a "broken mess" realy. And not us users or your sales,income benefit from the state of things as of now.
    I tried playing a match against an online oponent. The problem was...the timer is way to short. In a say..4-8 player match...yes..there 10 seconds is enough. Even if 15 might be a bit less stressful. But against 1 player..and not knowing the layout of the course..it become just a haphazard game of chanse. Remember..the lack of map or free view means there is no way or time to set up your shot right.
    Just stress and no fun. I gave up after 2 holes...

    So I do hope this game will be sorted out. AND tested properly thus time. No one have fun with how it is now....

    If the developers look at the Youtube video : SPEEDY IS SO TRIGGERED ! Infinete minigolf they will understand the confusing and not well explained way the game works... "what is that ?"..."how do i get out of here" comments. Balls flying out of bounds and in general a trail and error kind of experience. Instead of just having fun with the game...
