You'll also have to compensate for each character's weaknesses and for each course's terrain--from beautiful rolling hills to fantastic pipes and sand traps.

    License aside, this is the best golf title I've ever played. If you dig the sport and don't have a GameCube, it's time to buy one. [Oct 2003, p.48]
  2. Overall then Toadstool Tour comes highly recommended. As well as being quite a realistic golf sim it's also a fun one.
  3. The N64 version of "Mario Golf" didn't leave much room for improvement. Lucky for us, Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour's enhanced graphics, magnificently tweaked play mechanics and large variety of gameplay modes and characters improved upon the original in every way imaginable.
  4. While the improvements made to driving are welcome, as are the new courses and characters, the gameplay ultimately suffers due to poorly designed putting.
  5. Mario worshippers will be entranced. To the rest of us, it's just a fun little golf game. [Sept 2003, p.110]

    Despite its camera problems, its visual deficiencies, and the fact that it does some things worse than the original, I'm having lots of fun with Toadstool Tour.
  7. Golfing game standards like club selection, power meter, and control of backspins and topspins satisfy, but the sometimes-clunky controls and confusing camera perspectives will leave you teed-off.

    Okay, to begin with I should say I gave Mario Golf for N64 a 10/10. But I believe this is a slight step backward. While the graphics are much Okay, to begin with I should say I gave Mario Golf for N64 a 10/10. But I believe this is a slight step backward. While the graphics are much improved, and there are plenty of awesome added characters, the gameplay is ever so slightly worse. Probably my biggest complaint is with Boo. If you're inactive for approx 2-3 seconds (not long at all), boo will make his noise and come across the screen explaining how to play! it makes you feel a rushed to take your shot, which isn't cool considering how many factors you need to observe and take into account. it's especially annoying for veterans who obviously already know to press the A button to swing... so stupid. the person who's idea it was to include that needs to be shot.

    I absolutely hate sports games but somehow, this game just made me came to like golf. The amount of modes and the fact you can play withI absolutely hate sports games but somehow, this game just made me came to like golf. The amount of modes and the fact you can play with others using only one controller is amazing! The graphics aren't too shabby, and the system used to golf is amazing! If you are a golf or Mario fan, you should definitely have this! Expand
