This is just one of those games that give you a challenge and keeps ur interest at the same time! The controls may be hard to pick up at first but after about 2-3 days of playing it non stop you can be a master at it. But if u get easly fusterated at games then this game isnt for u.
But all in all this game is a definate to add to ur collection of wii games!
p.s. if u loved this game then go on their website and you can play this online for free (its only a online game, it doesnt go with your wii game) just google albatross18
I agree this game was very hard to learn the controls but once the controls were learned i was birdying my way through all the courses. This game was fun but was a little kiddie on the graphics but its a great start for nintendo.
Let me start by saying, I hate the Wii Sports golf game. The controls in it don't work well enough for me.
This game has controls which work excellent for me! Of course I cannot hit a perfect shot EVERY time, but I find that to be exceptionally realistic. It does help to follow some of the hints given in the manual, such as always swinging with two hands on the wii-mote.
I find the story lines to be very engaging and the matches are challenging, but not too hard. Unlockable items and characters keep coming at a regular enough pace that I keep playing just to see what I will get next. So far, I would say I have put about 5 hours into the story mode, and can say I probably am only 25% of the way through it.
There are plenty of items and customizations to work toward as well. Most of the items have to be unlocked by playing through the story mode. Most items will automatically add a certain amount to your stats. Further customization "slots" are given by some items and are shown by the number in parenthesis. For instance, Spin 2 (1) will automatically increase your spin by 2. However, you can further increase your spin by purchasing a customization for that character in the my room mode.
The one downside of the game to me was the fact that very little of the game is documented very well in the manual. However for someone who doesn't mind a little trial and error to figure things out for themselves, that isn't a big deal.
