4. Dangerous Golf

Another great arcade offering is Dangerous Golf, which can be enjoyed on both the PS4 and Xbox One. The goal of Dangerous Golf is to literally destroy everything in sight with your golf ball before sinking your putt.

As you wreak havoc with your ball, the game will tell you how much money in damage you caused earning you medals as you go (bronze, silver, gold and platinum). Once you’re satisfied with your mass destruction, you can calmly rest your ball as you line up your putt.

This leaves a great opportunity for bank shots which earn you more cash, which can bump up your medal. If you miss, you completely fail.

After you get a head start with your tee shot you get a “smashbreaker” where your ball ignites into a little fireball. At this point, you can maneuver the ball wherever you please as you gracefully destroy whatever area you’re in.

There’s a ton of fun to be had, with over 100 holes throughout four locations. Each hole has key things to break while others have things you should avoid destroying because if you hit, then it’s game over. These are hazards.

The four locations include France, America, Australia and England, where your journey starts off in France before unlocking the next locations. In France, you play holes in a mansion while America takes place in a kitchen. Australia’s and England’s holes are set at a gas station and castle respectively.

The game features gorgeous graphics, which makes each location nice to look at. The French mansion and English castle locations are both stunning.

One of the things you’ll get out of this golf video game is satisfaction. Literally everything on each hole is destructible, and once you’re done, sinking the putt feels amazing. Dangerous Golf is a game with a simple concept and beautiful graphics making it a fun experience. Besides, who doesn’t want to destroy things with a golf ball that’s on fire? It’s “lit” my friends.
