I bought this game as one of my very 1st games for my new Wii. I was looking for a mini-golf game that had the most holes, and one that my Dad (in his mid-60's) would enjoy playing as well. We both really enjoy it & have finally finished all the courses under par. The resounding complaint about the load time from every other reviewer is the only drawback. However, as my Dad & I were playing it the other day, we came to the conclusion that compared to playing a real mini-golf course--where you have to walk to each new hole, wait for other players to finish, etc...--the load time for each hole is nothing. The Arcade style of play is the easiest way to play, I haven't tried the SIM style as of yet though. I like being able to create a Nu-Yu character--they're much better detailed than the Wii Mii's. I was able to create a Nu-Yu that looks just like my Dad, one that looks really close to me, and a few others that look like some of my friends. As a new Wii owner/player, I've only played 5 different games on my system, so I may not be the best judge of quality as of yet. But, I really enjoyed playing the game--even if I occasionally got frustrated with a hole I was trying to finish. Don't get me wrong, the 1st 2 worlds are relatively easy, the last 2 are definitely more difficult. Since I like being challenged, it made it much more fun to play. If you want a challenging mini-golf game, with some time between holes to get a drink or just rest your hands, this is a good one to try.

That's about all. The game play is good when you are actually playing golf. Otherwise you are trying not to fall asleep waiting for a load screen after every hole. I like the fact that you can create a knockoff of the Mii to have your own character, and it is a very creative mini golf game with a hole (ex.) hitting into a pipe to go from green to green. I really think this could be very good if it really wasnt for the load screen everytime I think there would be more reviews in the 6-7 range. But as creative as this game is if you rent it you will be bored fast.
