Summary: I've played a LOT of mini-golf games on the computer: Gopher golf, Vertical Golf, Space Golf on Android to name a few. I even remember the arcade mini golf game with the roller control. I pumped most of my allowance into that one arcade game (that and Galaga). This game, is just plain bad. You can tell they tried, but what they needed were better beta testers. First of all the physics in this game are horrendous.
Summary: This game is a lot of fun but requires learning completely different stroke techniques compared to other WII golf games I've played. Unlike most reviewers here, I have completed every hole on the course (1000+) except for the three that are impossible because the ball won't fit in the hole. To get past these holes you can buy cheats that skip or modify holes or just take your ten over (the limit).
Summary: I own 2 other mini golf games and love them - they are easy to control and have very vivid graphics - this game doesn't have very good graphics and the controller isn't accurate. Some may find this a challenge but I find it difficult to enjoy when I cannot aim and control my golf ball direction more precisely.
Summary: My autistic 10-yr-old is really in to all things "mini golf". I appreciated all the reviews on the many mini golf wii games out there, and think I really did end up with the best of the lot. Our 4-year-old boy also enjoys playing it, so it isn't too confusing for the younger kids. I haven't played it myself to give a more detailed review, but the boys all love it, and so does dad.
Summary: UPdATE: We have now been addicted to this game for over a year. Love it! there are code glitches in a few courses. some of them we have found ways around, but a couple we just don't play. we, too, have played all of the mini golf games available for WII. This is still the best. As mentioned although the whole family will love it, impatient people or small children will be frustrated by the difficulty of some holes.
Summary: I have never written a review before but this game was so bad I had to. I can't believe they released this game the way it is. It is almost impossible to control the distances you hit the ball. Do not buy it!!
Summary: The controls are wacky, the game is difficult and the holes can be terribly frustrating about this game. However after a little practice I'm starting to get the hang of the game and can par or birdie most of the holes. It just takes a little time and patience to get the hang of things. I recommend this game only if you are willing to take the time to sit down and practice at it because you're not going to be good at it right off the bat.
