Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am is a PlayStation 2 game based on the Adult Swim animated television series, Aqua Teen Hunger Force. It is a hybrid kart racing/fighting/golf game that takes place on some New Jersey golf courses. It was released in North America on November 5, 2007, in Australia on November 15, and in Europe on November 16. The game includes four full episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.[1] ESPN sportscaster Scott Van Pelt provides commentary for the game.[2]

Overview[edit]

The golf segment of the game features nine holes. The first few holes are located on Jersey Pines golf course and are based on locations within the show, such as the tar pits, the Moon, Hell, and a fantasy level that Meatwad creates with Osirus's t-shirt. There are also three levels where the Aqua Teens race against the Frat Aliens giving the segment a total of 12 levels.

After teeing off, Master Shake or Frylock can be controlled as they fight their way to the balls' resting place. They face several foes, such as Carl's giant crabs, the brownie monsters, Turkitron, and the Mooninites. When the Aqua Teens reach the green they must defeat that hole's boss before they can putt.

In the golf segment's racing levels, the trio race their golf cart through the course they just played, shooting Frat Aliens with a bazooka, collecting speed boosts, and passing check points toward the goal of completing three laps to move on to the next level.

There are Easter eggs on each level for both the golf and racing sections. The Aqua Teens can collect cameos and pieces of the Broodwich to unlock a special Broodwich battle video.
