Mario Golf was a moderatly good game. All the original characters of Nintendo gathered together to battle it out on a sunny day in the middle of a golf course. Weapons relaced with golf clubs and putters, battles to the death replaced with battles of control and concentration and most importantly, the winner walks off the feild with a trophy instead of a rescued princess.
One of the perks that made this game interesting to me was the
fact that each character had a choice of different phrases to try
to distract the person with. Some of the things that they come up
with are just hillarious. The hidden characters and levels mixed
with multiplayer mode make this games replay value sky rocket.
The amount of concentration needed to hit the golf ball just
right, while taking in such factors as wind, rain and that
paticular characters strength makes this game just that much more
interesting. The music is soft and gentle, just right for a game
where you need to concentrate. I thought that this was a really
good addon to the game. I couldnt imagine trying to play
golf while listening to hard rock music, but some do it. Overall,
I felt this game was a moderatly good game and would recommend it
to anyone who is interested in multiplayer games or quiet soft
sounding mental games. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate this game
as a 8.5 mainly for the replay value and the content of the game.
Thank you for your time in reading this review and I hope you
enjoy the game.
Final rating: 8.5
