Does anyone know how long the story is for this game?

@Scrummer It's longer then I thought it would be. Can't tell you how long I've been playing yet as the Switch only says 8 days ago but I can say it's been over 20 hours and I'm still not done. Maybe another 5 hours or so to go so 25 to 30 hours total.

I finished it in under 20 hours while completing most side challenges too and got to level 35. Sadly there's not much going for it with regards to post game content which is slightly disappointing but oh well.

@Felly Yeah, other then local matches I don't see much replay value but I'm ok with that. Too many games to play and once done I can move on. Perhaps I'm not over 20 hours then.

Edit: Nope, I am just over 20 hour but I have to be honest I have set the system down numerous times and left it running. Maybe 2 or more hours combined.

@Spoony_Tech @Felly Okay, thanks. I don't really care TOO much about length, but I don't want to spend $15 on a 2 hour experience. I just want to make sure I would get a fairly lengthy play time.

I was concerned about its longevity too before buying it, but having put in a good few hours now and I've enjoyed every minute of it - it's definitely worth the price of the game.

Sure, it's got glitches and bugs, the sound/music is limited (is that a rip from Fire Emblem BTW?) and the graphics are very early16bit, but it's the game that counts and it has gameplay in spades. If you like golf games or rpgs (and it really IS a RPG) you'll enjoy it. If you like both, then get in there!

I hope I never see the word Galf ever again. First of all the games suck, second it just sounds so stupid lol.

Just beat the game a bit ago. Took about 20 hours but that was a wonderful 20 hours. Encountered a few bugs but nothing that caused me to lose data or time. Now it's back to Steamworld Dig 2!

Ok, so I'm stuck at tidy fields because I need to get a caddy. Does anyone know where it is?

Spoony_Tech

@Scrummer Your Caddy is the boy that is cadding for Max. You need to beat him in a match for him to join you. He's also one of the coaches student's.

So I've beaten the game (it was fantastic), but here still seems to be one scorecard I haven't filled out. Is just says ???. Is there a secret course I'm missing?

@Maxz I thought that too but did you ever just play a regular round on the last course?

@Spoony_Tech I've played against my Rival and in the tourney on Blue Moon Dunes, but not a bog standard round. And having just checked, you're absolutely right! No BMD score card (despite having a Match Card)! How strange...

Thanks for clearing that up.

Is there a way to reset a match? Sometimes I make a stupid mistake early on, and I want to reset the entire match, but I can't seem to find the button...

Octane

Maxz

@Octane There's no instant reset button, but I think if you quit the game (bottom option in the pause menu) and restart, you should be back at the beginning of the tourney.

@Maxz That's a shame... and pretty annoying TBH.

Spoony_Tech

@Octane The game with the exception of the last tournament was pretty easy. You should be able to overcome a few mistakes early on.

@Spoony_Tech I'm doing one of the challenges where you need to finish five courses in a limited amount of shots. And they basically need to be perfect, all of them. So whenever you make a small mistake, you kinda have to reset the game. It's pretty annoying at this point...

How is this game compared to the Mario Golf RPGs?

Spoony_Tech

@SKTTR It's really less about the Golf and more about the story. While the golfing can be fun it takes a backseat imo. In other words I don't feel compelled to play the golfing just for fun like I did in Mario. It's there to fill in the story gaps at least for me it was. With that said the golfing here is more challenging though as the courses have a lot of obstacles other then the normal sand traps and such. One of the courses didn't even have any greens.

@Spoony_Tech
I have to respectfully disagree a bit.

Make no mistake: the golfing and all of its trappings and mechanics are the majority of this game. MOST of your side quests and main quests involve golfing. Maybe not playing full rounds or even holes, but perhaps a putting exercise, driving exercise, chipping, etc.

The golfing system is fun, though. It's deceptively deep and allows you to play simple or more in-depth.

I had to put the game down for a little bit after I put about 10 hours in. Honestly, I was wishing for some more frequent non-golfing missions. I ended up finishing the game, and overall I would recommend it (especially at the price - can't beat that), but in my opinion the missions are not as varied as I was hoping.
