    There’s a glorious amount of fun to be had with What The Golf? and I’m delighted it’s finally on Switch, in particular. It’s a perfect blend of game and console, something I’ve said in various Switch reviews beforehand. When a game lands on Switch and feels completely at home, it’s well worth investing in.

    What the Golf was already excellent on PC and mobile, but the Switch version is the definitive one, especially if you have another player handy. It's still wildly funny, weird, and lots of fun, and if it was just the campaign again, it would still be the best version of the game thanks to the ability to switch between touch and stick controls--but the addition of Party Mode really elevates the whole package. In my original review I said, "Like all great jokes, you'll want to share it," and now that's easier than ever.

    What the Golf? is a clever, brilliant, crazy and oh-so funny game. Willing to break any rule there is to get a good pun, Triband's first major game is a must-play, thanks to its constant fun and will of going too far for its own good. One of the funniest, and best game of 2020 on Switch, and a perfect hole in one.

    What the Golf? is a fun and crazy title: on Nintendo Switch it comes in a practically perfect conversion.

    Gimmicks and references can only carry a game so far, and in What the Golf?, what’s lying beneath these is lacking the substance of a truly worthwhile experience. With its higher stakes and unpredictability, though, the multiplayer mode shows more promise.

    If it hasn't been clear so far let me get it out of the way: This is not a golf game. Instead it's a surprisingly fun mini game collectionIf it hasn't been clear so far let me get it out of the way: This is not a golf game. Instead it's a surprisingly fun mini game collection that you can play alone or with a friend.
    The typical mini game has you traverse some kind of obstacles to reach a goal. These obstacles are often hilarious and physics based. As such I am reminded of games like Happy Wheels, Goat Simulator and Wario Ware.
    Not every mini game is great: some feel to easy or can be cheesed while others might be frustrating (though usually you can skip those). But overall this game is a lot of stupid fun which you can either play in bursts by yourself or share with friends as it is easy to pick up and makes for a great party game.

It's got a simplistic art style and rudimentary story, but the gameplay is solid and the pop-culture references and references to other games are phenomenal.
