  • Summary: Super Swing Golf takes advantage of the power of the Wii and provides a rich, newly designed, casual golf game that revolutionizes the way video game golf is played, putting the player in control of the club and the course. The Super Swing: The Wii controller provides a new level of gaming interaction, sensing motion, depth, positioning and targeting dictated by the movement of the controller itself allowing the controller to act as the golf club. A back-swing sets the amount of power of the swing and the angle of controller when hitting the ball defines whether the ball will hook or slice. Improved character texture and molding and the newly designed costumes bring this title to life in this uniquely designed fantasy world. Hit the lynx in Single Mode to play through Story Mode, Free Mode, or Challenge Mode. In Story Mode, the game proceeds along with the story of each character and will diverge according to the results of the match. Try out Battle Mode to take on others in Match Play, Stroke Play, and Party Play. [Tecmo] Expand

  1. Great characters, original courses, loads of items, and an intuitive control system, what more could you ask for? [JPN Import]
  2. 80
    While the game itself suffers from a number of faults, especially in terms of putting and overall A.I., the experience itself is one that is truly exceptional and fun, even if you have to sit and watch a shot.
  3. Super Swing Golf offers the best of both worlds - the fantastical setting for those who loathe real sports, but the physical demands of a game that continually pushes you to improve. [Mar 2007, p.124]
  4. It might look childishly simple, but Super Swing Golf has great control and a ton of courses and content to offer. So many launch titles offer interesting controls and minimal longevity, but this is a club you can swing well into next year.
  5. Super Swing Golf might be one of the hardest games to size up on Wii thus far, with its mixture of less-than-desirable visuals, gameplay that is either love it or hate it and the simple fact that a game designed for online play and is relegated to local multiplayer only.
  6. The cartoony look might turn off mainstream sports gamers, but anyone who can stomach it will be treated to the best -- and most challenging -- round of Wii golf yet.
  7. Super Swing Golf is obnoxious, gimmicky, featureless, and, despite its best attempts otherwise, humorless.
