Summary: Parents need to know that there's nothing offensive about this mini-golf game -- unless you count Bubba King's super-hokey southern accent. King of Clubs offers a variety of multiplayer modes, but no online play.
Conclusion: King of Clubs Mini Golf embodies every negative aspect of third party games created for the Wii. It has poor motion controls, bad graphics, and almost no redeeming qualities. It borders on total unplayability, and the best advice for those who want to play golf on the Wii is to stick with WiiSports.
Excerpt: Our last stop at E3 in the Los Angeles Convention Center was the Crave and Natsume booth. Despite showing up late for my appointment, everyone looking beat and chomping at the bit to pack up; the crew at Michael Meyers PR was kind enough to show me around and give me a hands-on demo of King of Clubs for the Nintendo Wii. Overall, my first impressions were positive as the game showed lots of promise.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: With as many faults as positives, there is not enough that can be said to recommend King of Clubs. Despite its novel setting it is uninspired and derivative. One for golf fans only, and even then only those that have tired of the full-on accuracy of most other golf sims.
Excerpt: King of Clubs is a British title by Oxygen Studios which was released for the Wii, DS, PSP and PC in which you have to tackle… a golf course!

Each environment theme has its own resident â€˜Course Proâ€™ resplendent in suitably themed fancy dress costume.
