I’ve been playing the PC version of super swing golf, AKA Pangya(JP), Albatross18(US), for a little over a year and I was really excited for it being ported to the wii. Its wildly popular all over the world, I.E. Japan, Korea, and Brazil and I’m expecting with the motion controls, the experience would be more enjoyable.
I’ve played wii sports golf and for my personal tastes, I think I prefer super swing better. Although the swing controls seem a little weird, it takes a little while to get used to making the right swing. It was a good idea for tecmo to include normal press the button control, great for beginners or in my case too lazy to move haha. I’ve heard many complain about the putting system but coming from the PC version, I feel right at home. I even played with some of my friends and they didn’t seem to have any trouble with it. One major gripe I have about this game is the pace of the game. It takes soooo long just to get through 18 holes. An option for fast forwarding during cpu shots would be greatly welcomed. I always loved the fantasy setting for this game. Very unique courses that are very out of the ordinary and at time can be very frustrating.
So basically, if you’re looking into an anime-ish, hot shots golf type game, then super swing is worth a try, if your more into the authentic look and feel, tiger woods is coming out real soon.
One of the first actual golf titles to hit the Wii (not counting the one that came with the Wii Sports disc) was expected to be an awesome game, but I'm not saying that's it's not but just saying that it didn't exactly fall into anybody's top 10 games to play but to stand corrected it can be a very fun game to play with friends and just for something to swing that WiiMote to. Ok for starters; the game's cartoonish/anime look is suitable for everyone and can sometimes be a little bright on the eyes but who's judging, and the overall presentation of the game looks good but gameplay wise it did not get a hole in one. One quirk that i found in it was that when you are playing in story mode or just about any mode that you play against the computer you cannot skip through the cpu's turn you have to watch the cpu go through it's turn until it is your's. Overall the game is fun with people but can be quite time consuming against the cpu.
I opened this game at 7:00. I did the training, and yes some of the camera controls are a bit different, but the controls are intuitive. By 8:00 I already played 2 3 hole games, I didn't win but thats due to getting accustom to the controls. So far I like it, but probably not for little kids.
