Decent and Fun
The competitiveness does need to shift is the reason I give it a 3.
1. Not right to be placing someone who has been playing thousands more games than you because hmm obviously they have clubs that are supposed to be far upgraded than yours. (I see this probably significantly when you move to next stages.)
2. This is a two parter, people who pay for stuff and game modes. I see someone who has 100 kangaroo balls like 120 black balls, upgraded Bat Wings to like level 5-6 so on it’s like ok your already driving the ball an extra 100+ yards than me great it’s a waste of time. Also really hurts in the Draws it’s like hmm I have maybe 3 balls of each, this person has all these upgrades on my same stage level I don’t stand a chance besides to get lucky they miss fire!!! So I say make a stage mode or some sort of feature that levels it out to just skill. Nobody should have x30 more balls than you, nobody should have a Bat Wing level 2 and facing someone at level 6 and so on with the other clubs. Put those players using some algorithm facing one another so it gives the playing field a little more even. For instance I love the concept when finding opponent you can adjust your setting “No special balls” “Clubs within one ranking up any legendary or free game for all the base level clubs etc” if that means you lower the ranking trophy boost from 60 down to 30 or whatever so be it but at least the game is more fair and gives you a chance against equal level opponents.
I still think that it’s and unfair game because it synchronizes all of the players but me and that’s unfair because the players that get synchronize are making shots that they shouldn’t be making like puts, when the flag goes up you are in line for the put but if it comes down you aren’t in line. But the players that are synchronized make the put anyway even when the flag has came back down and if all of you MF’s have to cheat to beat me that’s showing me just what caliber of people that you are. And I just wanted you to know that you couldn’t beat anyone if you weren’t synchronized. So I still say that it’s and unfair game to the ones of us that are just wanting to enjoy a game and not be all stressed out because of the cheating that’s going on, so to inform you and the makers of this app that they should be reported to the gaming association for running and unfair game that will cheat you in all kinds of different ways. Like changing your shots and synchronizing players that are buying things. And all of those player’s that synchronize aren’t nothing but cheaters and I would hate to that I had stoop so as to cheat on a casual golf that’s suppose to a fun game because if you have to synchronize to beat a player like me that doesn’t never get to synchronize. And play me fair and don’t synchronize and I will beat you and as to me all of you player’s that synchronize aren’t nothing But Cheaters.
Great game I deleted once, and cant remember why
By Catawba Claw
I remember why I deleted it I have lost 6 matches in a row where I hit every shot on the fairway and my opponent hits the ball as hard as he/she can into trees or stone columns and when the ball lands it shows that balls path to the green and it’s blocked by tree or rock or stone columns and they have no shot, I take my shot and it goes back to the opponent they have a clear shot to the green, rock gone, tree gone, stone column gone. So I’m not an idiot so I say I’ll try that if it works that way for me I’ve got nothing to complain about but my opponent and the mysterious invisible obstacles do not disappear for me. You get tons of free stuff in the game and that’s awesome and it makes me want to play more, but it’s incredibly frustrating to play a game where it seems things are this way. I can’t think it’s a planned conspiracy that the more money you spend you get special obstacle removing powers it’s clearly something that someone found a way around these things and people they’ve played after this discovery have found out how it works. I’ll continue playing I have. I doubt about that but not as much as I would have otherwise. I’m not even going to change from my initial 5 stars.
Best Golf Game
If you are trying to decide between this game and Golf Clash, pick this one! The only edge I would give Golf Clash over Golf Rival is that Golf Clash does a better job of giving a wide variety of different tournament events and locations, while Golf Rival’s tournament is largely the same every time. But from a pure gameplay mechanic and technical standpoint, Golf Rival is the better game. The wind mechanic, spin, and different special balls all make much more sense in this game and it is far less often that you feel cheated. The different clubs and upgrades are much more straight forward and unless your opponents clubs are several levels over yours, you can still win if you judge wind properly and execute perfect shots. The shot meter is much better as well. And while Golf Rival offers much the same in-app purchases as Golf Clash does, you never get the feeling that you have to buy things to be successful. In Golf Clash you could be on a long losing streak, getting robbed left and right. Then you spend a little money and everything goes your way for a while. You never get that in Golf Rival. It is CONSISTENT. Golf Clash is all over the place and very unreliable when it comes to consistency. Choose Golf Rival!
DONT SPEND MONEY!!!!!!!!!!
By BACK .9
Please , keep your money and spend it on a game that will at least not cheat you, don’t know which one that might be because there all crooks but this game has made up bots that are just tossed in the game. I was in the Global 50 that means the top 50 players in the world. I was 45th my friend that plays was in 36th another friend in 22nd and the guy I first new at this game was in 11th position. I went from 45th down to 50 in 1 Day the developer had made the game impossible to win at because he added a new level that everyone could not lose a game for a day are two that had a glitch. The next day people were logging on and couldn’t even win 1 single game the whole day and night. Then we started to notice players who were never in the top 50 just automatically appeared in the game. WADE if you are a real person then I’ll eat my words but this guy comes along out of nowhere starts at 49th day 1. Day 2 he’s at 38th day 3 30th, day 4 22nd, day 5 17th by this time I knew something was up then he passes my friend that was in the 11th spot so I messaged the developer and they have said nothing. This is what you deal with once you get to a certain point of the game and can’t win any more are if you get a higher level and get shut down by the developer
Fun at first but then you gotta pay to win
Game starts out fun but to be able to compete with others in your rank you can’t win due to their clubs being way better. I’m at level 12 and every round I play is against some one with clubs so much better than mine it really makes no sense why they would still be on this level. So I ponied up $50 to buy more gems so I could open more chests but unfortunately it’s a scam because all the clubs you get are junk and not the good clubs you need. I believe mot of these players with the massive advantages are actually bots and not real people. Feel pretty ripped off at this point but I’m the dope who got suckered into spending money.
Update: after a couple more weeks of play, I have not played a match with a single player with clubs that are not far better than mine. I mean my clubs are at a level 4 and my supposedly matched opponent will have the same club at a level 7 or 8. The only way I can win is if they make a grave error. A draw will always give them an even larger unfair advantage than the one I already overcame just to get to a draw. I’ve managed to reach several hundred points into level 15 to only get beaten so many games in a row I will wind up under the 15,000 point range and go back to level 14. No matter how many chests I open I can’t get cards for the clubs I need to win unless I pay for them. So I say again, do NOT spend money on this game.
This game is addictive, unfortunately it does set you up to pay allot of money to succeed, the chest are junk gives you mostly club upgrades on clubs no one uses, and very little towards the popular ones, you keep wasting gems to open them and no pay off , even my helm club has maxed out yet I keep getting cards for it, also they set up the arena on some holes to be out reach on your top clubs, they change the wind so it’s towards you and hole can’t be reached or you reach on your 1st shot perfectly then your second shot is set up with an out of reach wind wasting hearts, , the kingdom is also set up for failure making shots impossible to make or you set up a shot perfectly the guide line shows no red and no obstacles in your way then you hit a branch or blade of grass that wasn’t in your shot set-up, if you can’t count on the guideline than what good is, I’ve written them several times with no response, but they’ve made the game frustrating, then there’s level 13 witch I don’t even like playing, too many billboards, they’ve taken golf right out of the game with that level more like a pinball game not golf, so I basically do the arena and tournaments, level 13 is awful!!! They definitely cheat you out of money with this gam
Still getting cards on my helm club , it’s maxed out with no upgrade available, why am I still wasting cards on this
No in app purchases needed
I’ve played this game for over half a year now and have had lots of success and usually have better stats than my rivals, although I usually have worse clubs. I have never made an in app purchase in this game, so for all the people that claim you can’t win without in app purchases, this is false. I have days in which I don’t play well, but overall I have good and consistent success. I didn’t always play well, but then I took 2 minutes to look up the wind patterns for the different club types and immediately found more success. I can now consistently dunk shots with most clubs from most terrains. I also try to use as few special balls as I can and try to save them only for when I need one or can guarantee that I will win by using one. By doing this, I never have an issue with running out of balls, while also still winning many games. Overall, I think the most important thing to know is the wind patterns for the club types and by knowing these, there is no need for in app purchases.
Frustrating algorithms (Rigged)
The game is not made to be fun and fair. It’s made to keep you on their app as long as possible, which is understood from a business perspective, but as a consumer I’m frustrated at the lack of fairness and integrity. They put you up against a “guest” so most of the time you are going against their computer. They give you just enough taste of winning so you can see yourself moving up in the game which means unlocking more clubs and courses. You are well on your way to getting the next course when they start sending computer opponents your way who have clubs that you cannot compete with and their strike accuracy is on point every time. This makes you frustrated to the point where you quit or are forced to make purchases with the hope of gaining a club/upgrade to legitimately compete. Another thing they should revisit is having the wind be the same for each player on any given shot so I’m not shooting at 9mph wind and they get 6mph. Feeling like you’re playing a game that is rigged and makes you pay to play feels like you’re being manipulated and deceived. Aside from the moral compass of the design, it could definitely allow you to play more interactively with friends and for more than one hole. But there’s no money in that. Be sure not to fall into a trap by making in-game purchases.
Golf Rival review
This game is really fun. It has good graphics with great amounts of detail in nearly every level. Unlike many of the other golf games out there, this one doesn’t Lag really at all when you are aiming up your shot to release, which has been my ultimate complaint with nearly all golf games like this. I find it to be a great game, that is entertaining and easy to just start and go. I only have one complaint. And that is the putting. If my ball is 2 ft from the cup it should be an easy putt with pretty much 0 chance to miss, but when my ball is 50 ft from the cup, the putt should be difficult, the accuracy gauge should be shaking and it should be a challenge to make it. It isn’t fair that I hit a great shot 2 feet from the cup and my opponent hits a shot and it just barely stops on the back of the green and he’s got a 50-60ft putt and drains it no problem. I seriously believe this needs to get addressed and changed because it has me not wanting to play anymore just because what’s the point? I draw 85-90% of my matches because the game just makes it to easy on the greens. Please consider what I have said and suggested for the game, I believe every player would agree with this no doubt
