Review King of the Course Golf

Jay Feldman
10Best
Perfect soundtrack, quality animation, quality game design, quality 3d graphics, lots of levels, well-balanced difficulty
Very expensive in-app purchases
King of the Course Golf for Android is one of the best golfing apps I've tried. The graphics shoot for realism and the play has a lot if intricacy and nuance. The biggest downside, is this app looks as expensive to play as real golf!
King of the Course Golf is brought to you by EA Games, so right there, you know this has to be good. And it does indeed live up to the name. The play is amazingly detailed, with appearances from real golf stars offering you personal advice on how to improve your game. Work through challenges to improve your skills and play on actual PGA courses. Facebook integration means you can even challenge friends online. Very cool.
The controls are highly sophisticated. Swings have about as much variance and accuracy as one could hope for from a game; some very advanced stuff here. Hold your finger on the screen to wind up for the swing, adjust your finger position with precision to affect the trajectory of the ball, then swipe upward to swing and hit. There’s a time limit with how long you can keep your club cocked back for a shot, so you can’t just sit there, agonizing over your swing; and the controls register variance in force when hitting the ball. The game is designed to replicate the fluid movement of an actual swing, so it all has to be done artfully. You can also effect the ball direction slightly by swiping the screen to gently direct the ball, mid flight.
The graphics are pretty amazing. You can virtually look at the course from any angle and watch multiple views of your shots. All of that truly adds to the realism and enjoyment of the game. And for all the complex visuals, I experienced no hangs or glitches. All played smoothly and didn't seem to overly tax the battery. The sounds also add to the enjoyment and are perfect for a game like this.
King of the Course Golf, honestly, is about as good as it gets for a golf app. I almost feel like I should be wearing tartan pants while playing it. The biggest downside is, I question how reliant this game is on in-app purchases over the long haul. The virtual coin packages were quite expensive, and for that kind of money, you may as well go play for real. But other than that, this one is near perfect.
