    With its frantic new modes and spot-on gameplay, playing Mario Golf: Super Rush is the most amount of fun I've had with a sports game in a very long time. Throw in that iconic Nintendo charm and comprehensive multiplayer and you're left with a hole-in-one.

    Mario Golf: Super Rush is a compact and funny golf game, with appreciable physics and graphics. Speed Golf is really cool, but we doubt that it will be as loved as the normal mode.

    Rather than playing safe with the same, proven method, Mario Golf : Super Rush addresses the notion - if not the issue - of pace through a more dynamic approach carried by the new spin system and the optional addition of running between shots, wholly integrated into the environments' ingenious architecture. While such speedy, bumpy or even battling formula may disrupt some calm purists because of the constant pressure, it orientation towards multi player competition and online bursts shows Camelot's very own vision of this sport.

    Standard golf and the RPG mode make this new Mario Golf well worth the effort. The Rush aspects are a nice, if not superfluous, addition. Not being able to play with four players on one system is ridiculous and destroys all party potential.

    While it may not be the best entry in the series, Nintendo has at least managed to make par with Mario Golf: Super Rush by offering the core arcade style golfing experience players come to expect alongside some enjoyable new game types that will hopefully continue to get even better with future updates.
  6. 65
    Despite its short-comings, Golf Adventure is a wonderful iteration of past Mario sports RPG modes, and it stands as a definite highlight within a mediocre golf bag of lie-filled scorecards and broken tees. Mario Golf: Super Rush takes years of practice at the driving range and blasts a tee shot into the air, only to see it curve far to the right and into an unsuspecting water hazard. It should have been a culmination of the home and handheld versions of Mario Golf, and instead it largely squanders that potential. Only time will tell if content drops for the game will bring it up to par. For now, you’ll have to play it as it lies.

    It's rare to play a Nintendo game that feels so fundamentally misguided. [Issue#361, p.118]

    I'm having a blast with this game! The courses the game has so far is high quality (remind me of the 64 courses). I've seen a lot of peopleI'm having a blast with this game! The courses the game has so far is high quality (remind me of the 64 courses). I've seen a lot of people complaining bout the uI for shots but for me has made the game more challenging then form games. The speed golf mode is also a awesome mode to jump into for online play . The motion controls respond great for standard 18 hole rounds. Definitely looking forward to what else they add in future updates. Adventure mode isnt as good as the gameboy but does have a charm with how they changed it up. Expand

    This is a solid mario sports party game, but is by no means a perfect experience. The graphics engine is pretty good with a variety of coloursThis is a solid mario sports party game, but is by no means a perfect experience. The graphics engine is pretty good with a variety of colours and courses, although you can see the blocky pixels at times. It is also good to see that Camelot prioritised framerate with a smooth 60fps experience. There is also a decent variety of courses, with the most recent New Donk City being a good addition. The new speed golf mode while fun, can also be a bit chaotic and at times can suffer from a bit of down time. The single player story mode makes a promising start, but loses its charm and appeal rather quickly due to a small number of things to do and weak RPG mechanics. The cross country mode is an interesting feature and I'm surprised that there is no option to play this mode out of the story mode (perhaps this will be added later on?). The recent update also added monthly tournament play which is nice, although I wish power shots were turned off, as in my experience online play involves waiting for your opponents to go first so that you can hit them with a powerful shot and potentially screw up their game. If you have friends or family to play with, I think local play is a great option as well with both split screen and turn by turn play possible. Overall, this is a pretty solid experience that will hopefully continue to get better with more updates just like Mario Tennis Aces. Expand

    Mario Golf: Super Rush is a very nice golf game. But the content breaks the effect of the smash it should have been. Indeed, the story mode isMario Golf: Super Rush is a very nice golf game. But the content breaks the effect of the smash it should have been. Indeed, the story mode is useless in addition to being badly managed (like Aces). Not really new, except the welcome Aces engine, and the speed golf mode, a fun and successful mode in my opinion. Too bad the rest is average like the roster or the empty and few maps.
    (Edit: With updates. Super Rush has gotten better and much more complete as the addition of terrain and welcome game modes. Unfortunately the main problems remain.=

The new swing system not only removes the timing based aspect of the game. It also removes any real penalty for making a bad shot.

    Stuck in some sand? Crack out the 1 Wood and smack it to the green, no problem. The whole concept is built on a risk/reward system but it simply doesn't work. The risk is microscopic and the reward is huge.

    People defending this gameplay mechanic, heck, I even defended it at one point. It's not worth defending. It basically removes the whole point of golf, it removes learning the clubs, knowing how to handle each situation. It's all gone. You just smack it and hope for the best. The game simply wont allow you to mess up. It's the worst thing to possibly happen to Mario Golf cos it ruins every single aspect of the game. The skill element, the planning element, the timing, the importance of each club, it's all gone. if you think I'm exaggerating, you haven't played the game enough, or haven't dared to experiment. The only thing that comes out unscathed really is the putting.

    At the most it's a system you can tolerate but I highly doubt people familiar with the series can honestly say this is the right direction for the series. And it's not just me. My dad bought a Switch JUST for this game cos he loves the series so much. And after a day, he was saying he's thinking of selling it. He's 60 and even he hates it, it's sad.

    I can't believe how much they messed up Mario Golf here. It's a shallow, hollow shell of a game and I reckon it'll forgotten about by most in a month or two. And top it all off, it barely has any content or side modes. No ring shot, club slots, challenges, vs matches, win records, leaderboards. Nothing. it's almost comparable to Mario Tennis Ultra Smash and that's just sad.

    The worst Mario Golf game.

I've wasted my time and money. A game like neo turf masters from more than 20 years ago beats the hell out of Mario golf. A big disappointment but of a game I was looking forward to for a long time.

    Mario Golf: Super Rushed is the biggest disappointment for a Mario franchise game.

    The single player mode is just a tutorial, and the characters in game talk about tournaments and other events that don't appear anywhere in the game. Being robbed of $80 for basically a demo is a huge insult, big enough that I registered an account here to warn others. The last free update was just released, and all the problems still exist. Considering the game is just an online mode with a how to tutorial, it shouldn't cost more than $20, since you need a Nintendo Online account to use it.
