Really Bad

Lack of commitment kills it.

A good attempt, but frustratingly bad controls killed this one. I can only hazard a guess that the support for button-only style play required the controls to be as bad as they are. For instance, when swinging, you draw back and press 'A' to lock in swing strength, and then the actual distance seems to vary based on how hard you swing as well. Why am I locking in power if my swing speed effects it as well? They should have picked one or the other (preferably the more natural swing speed = power). Also, your shots hook and slice wildly, but there is no indication on screen of how you club face is aligned, nor a reference in the tutorial to indicate how one should hold the wiimote. The lack of a mini map on the main screen is also irritating, requiring one to flip through 3 different camera views and slowly scroll around to line up and gauge distance for each and every shot. Putting is made awkward by the lack of a simple line to indicate the precise direction you are aiming in. (There is an arrow, but it is often obscured by your character's head...even when you toggle on 'Transparent' mode...sigh)

Very clunky, very non-intuitive, very much NOT an example of the type of game that makes one want to own a Wii in the first place. I would have to say that Wii Sports Golf is a far simpler, but far more on the mark type of golf game. I can only hope that Tiger Woods Golf does a better job than Super Swing.

Rent it, see what you think, but ultimately expect to go back to Wii Sports for your golf fix for the time being.

This game had so much potential for being a great game, but the game play is absolutely horrible. If you're thinking of getting this, then you already have a Wii, and you've played the golf game that comes with the Wii. That game is so much better than this one in so many ways, from game play to course layouts. This game is colorful, but you can feed a cow some rainbow grass and he'll give you colorful s#!t. That's pretty much this game wrapped up. Don't waste your time with it for even one hole. The best thing about this game is if you use it as a coaster, you can keep liquid off your coffee table.

Weak

Not Even as Good as Wii Golf

Strike 1: Big Eyed Anime, where even the guys look like girls

Strike 2: Instead of using the force of your forward swing (which is the whole point of the Wiimotes), they use a power meter to determine the distance the ball travels.

Strike 3: The power meter mentioned above is based on how far back you pull the remote.

Thank Goodness Tiger Woods came out today.
