You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

At $10, Mini-Golf seems yet another overpriced XBLA game.  This really should be a $5 (400 point) game, IMHO.

With an editor and 36 holes, this is on par (pun!) or beyond what other casual minigolf PC offerings give us. And they are usually $20. Even without an editor, I would be ok with the price. Of course, if the gameplay sucks it ain't worth squat. smile

Yeah I think it'd be hard for two old school games that both involve shooting aliens to be anymore different than they are.

I think it's funny that Sierra has resurrected their "3D Ultra" brand name.  I was sure that had died years ago.  The game looks like it might be good fun, though.

I've only seen a few screenshots, but it looks like it might be an update/extension of Sierra's previous Mini-golf game for the PC.  I think that only had 18 holes and no editor, but a couple of the screen shots looked very familiar. That game was fun enough, but nothing too special.

It's even funnier that all those games were in 2D slywink  The ones I played were fun, though, so hopefully, the new ones will be good too.
