Mario Golf

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Panther The first time I saw Mario Golf I never would have thought that it would be good at all. I mean Golf? Who would think that it could be any good. That was before I bought the game. Now I have the game, and even after you beat it the game play just keeps getting more fun. There are so many different types of golf you can play in the game, and so many different types of courses too. Not all of the golf courses look the same at all. There are six different one, including a desert one, a regular one, and one with a Nintendo character on each hole! Beleive it or not, this is a great game.

Graphics: 8 out of 10

The graphics for Mario Golf are great, they are pretty much standard for the 64, but they are good. The replays that they show you have very good graphics along with the courses and the characters, but I think that they probably could have made it a little better. To sum it all up, the graphics are standard for the 64.

Music and Sound: 10 out of 10

The music and sound are great in the game. Some of the music you here is what you would expect for a Mario game, but a good bit of the music is new and has a good beat to it. Nintendo did a good job on the music at the end of the game because it is a remix of the original Mario music from Mario Bros. The sound is good in the game with no flaws in it. Each character has 4 different taunts and there are lots of characters. The sound and music in this game is great, especially the music.

Game Challenge: 9 out of 10

There is a good bit of a challenge in this game also. The one player "Get Character" mode is for unlocking characters, and a lot of the characters, especially Wario, are hard to unlock. To unlock Metal Mario, you have to get a birdie on every hole in all of the six golf courses, sheesh!!!! One of the most challenging ways of play is the "Ring Shot" mode where you have to hit your ball through all of the rings on a hole and get the ball in the hole in par. The last set of Ring Shots that you do are really hard, and can take forever. The tournament mode that they have that lets you unlock different golf courses is not as hard as it sounds. You just play a regular round of golf and after each hole they show where you are in the standings. By the way, when you check you standings be sure to note some of the characters names when you look. They have characters from tons of different 64 games. This game provides for a great challenge, especially is you don't play golf much. There is always something new to challenge you in this game.

Game Play-Fun: 10 out of 10

Let me tell you that this game never gets old. The main thing to play when you start out is Get Character mode which will take a while, then when you are done unlocking all of the characters, you might want to try Ring Shot mode which should keep you playing for a while. When you are done with Tournament mode and have unlocked all of the courses and characters, it might be time to try the excellent multi player capability. In multi player that have types of games that only work in multi player, like my favorite, Golf Slots. You play a slot machine which picks the three clubs you use for that hole, if you get three stars, you get to use all of the clubs, if you get a star and two other clubs, you only get to use those clubs. When you are playing one player once you have beaten everything it is still fun because each hole is different each time you play it because of the wind, and the direction of the wind, so you have to vary your shots a little to win. This game never gets old for me, and it probably never will.


No real frustration, except when you hit a bad shot, or the ball never stops rolling for a while. That is really annoying because you have to wait until it completly stops for you to continue play.

Replayability: 8 out of 10

This game lets you replay your shots and see them from a different angle which is really neat. Although the replay is good, I think it could have been a little bit better, with some more special effects. Also if you do really good on the hole it will keep it in the options menu, and you can replay it with some really sweet music in the background too.

Game Value: 10 out of 10

This game is definitely worth the price because the game is challenging and stays challenging. It almost never gets old, and is a must have for Nintendo fans everywhere. Great game, worth the price!

Overall: 10 out of 10

A great game that gets a well-earned round of applause. BUY IT!!!!!!
