Hard to putt down

For a slightly out of shape plumber that very rarely seems to do any actual plumbing, Mario sure enjoys plenty of different sports. It remains an integral part of Nintendo's delightfully quirky games catalogue for its mascot and the residents of the...

Hmmm, I don't know about this title... Looks great, but I wonder if it had that special ''Mario'' content so it would be more than just golf...

This looks fun! I hope the courses are fun to play on and the character roster has many characters.

Whoa. Never realized that this game got delayed into 2014, and you know what? GOOD. In 2012, we got smashed in the rear with Mario games galore and it came back to haunt Nintendo and the Wii U launch. With Super Mario 3D World being the Wii U's biggest game this holiday, it's crucial people get a break from Mario before his next adventure hits. I was worried people would get exhausted with Dream Team, Mario Kart, Mario Golf, and Mario Party, but with Mario Kart 8 AND Mario Golf World Tour launching next year, it should give Mario the proper level of games needed to keep people from being "Marioed" out when 3D World hits. With Mario being my favorite franchise, I am happy to see this. Nintendo's finally coming out with a varied lineup for both 3DS AND Wii U so I think we should actually appreciate having one less Mario game to risk oversaturating the brand!

And also, with this delay, maybe Camelot will take time to add RPG elements like they SHOULD have with Mario Tennis Open!

@NintendoPro64 I seriously hope they don't add RPG elements to this. They had some in Mario Tennis Open. There should be none whatsoever just a roster of balanced characters. Best player wins. (Rather not even have custom characters if they have any advantage whatsoever over the standard ones).

Having to grind to get the kit pieces is exactly the type of thing I think of as RPG elements. I don't want my character to get better I want me to get better at playing the game to progress.

as long as the online is stable and doesnt kick everyone when someone quits i think this game will be fine, especially with the tournaments, imagine how bad it could be, the host quits and the entire tournament is over because one jerk missed a put
