  1. While it still retains many of the negative aspects of past titles, it should appear quite clear that it is the definite installment in the series.

    Does anyone really buy this stuff? Is this a business model that's really turning a profit for Aksys? I'd love to know, because the company sure seems plenty happy to keep populating otherwise worthwhile Monday morning Wii Shop updates with its below-average wares.
  3. There's nothing to see here. Another bomb from Aksys on WiiWare, which, this time, couldn't even fulfill the least a player expects from a generic Wii Remote game: swings of the controller.

    Although the holes are plentiful enough and more challenging than most real world counterparts (which amount to little more than a few 2x4's haphazardly nailed together), I rented this game to play as a family. I don't consider myself a hard core gamer yet it's still a bit frustrating having to wait to putt again after I watch my 7 year old consistently plunk the ball into yet another lava field without seeming to grasp the concept! It took over an hour just to finish a "world" and my daughter was steaming mad that she never got a chance to putt out. If there was a "difficulty" setting that allowed for "never having golfed before" it would have been a great experience. I mean, they can put bumpers into bowling alleys. Why not this game? After 2 hours my daughter was completely disinterested. I however had fun with it and enjoyed it's, at times, challenging gameplay. If you're a single person with a Wii it's definitely a good way to pass time, but for a family game(which oddly enough it's geared toward) I would save the cash for something a bit less off-putting, Collapse
