ESRB Watch – Worms Crazy Golf
First released for mobile phones in 2007, Worms Crazy Golf was recently rated by the ESRB for PlayStation 3. There’s not really much to say here, except the game is of course a 2D golf game based in a variety of courses, following the typical worms themes of fun fairs, graveyards and pirate caves. You’ll be hitting balls all over the place, and I’m dramatically running out of things to say about the game. Here’s a link to the ESRB page, and here’s a transcript of the summary. Sure sounds like golf with a worms skin.
This is a 2D golf game in which players control small worms that compete on whimsical courses (e.g., Fun Fair, Graveyard, Pirate Cave). Players hit their ball over obstacles and use special abilities (e.g., reverse gravity, time control) to complete course challenges. Some challenges require players to hit “cartoony” sheep, bats, and critters with golf balls, causing them to disappear in brief puffs of smoke. The game also contains instances of slapstick humor and off-beat descriptions (e.g., “Privates on parade?” “Kamikaze!” and “Impeccable balance, great curves . . . Everything you could want from a surfer babe speech bank.”).
