Family Mini Golf (WiiWare)

Game Profile

Daddy, Mommy, Sarah and Billy are back for some mini-golf action. Play through multiple golf courses that contain obstacles ranging from bumpers to speed ramps to fans and more. Up to eight players can play together using a single Wii Remote controller.

You can download new courses to expand your fun-filled mini-golf experience, creating even more complex and difficult challenges to overcome. Can you conquer all the courses and become the mini-golf champion?

Game Review


USA USA Version

Posted by Sean Aaron

A little golf for the whole family.

The "Family" series of games has developed a reputation of being, well, a bit crap, really. They're bare-bones, budget versions of sports games you probably already have better versions of elsewhere, making you wonder why Arc System Works even...

The original Mario Kart! Oh, and some other stuff.

It took quite a while, but one of the most wanted Virtual Console games has finally been released in Europe, after hitting both North America and Japan last year. This week's WiiWare and DSiWare releases consist almost exclusively of games already released in North America as well, with just one DSiWare title being "new"! Super Mario Kart..

Three more WiiWare games accompanied by one each for DSiWare and Virtual Console.

There seems to be a resurgence in Nintendo's focus on WiiWare - There were three new WiiWare games last week and there's three more this week. They're probably not the titles most people were waiting for, though... It should also be noted that every single game this week is new to western shores, so we don't have any..

I'm sure this will hold up better than Family Table Tennis, but I'm not expecting big improvements or anything. Family Pirate Party will probably be better than this.



CrystalWolf said:

i might get this, it depends if it is better than Wii Sports golf and the Fun Fun Minigolf



KnucklesSonic8 said:

Well if they fail to add high-scores then it's already not going to be as good as FFM.
Hmmm... I wonder what the third option on the menu is... Could it be... Wi-Fi?



KnucklesSonic8 said:

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they did, especially since they plan on having Tennis also.

toad29, you could always contact Arc System Works/Aksys Games personally? aksysgames.com is a good place to start.



Ratengo said:

The third option is: "Download Shop" (you can pay for playing on new holes).

This Family Fun may have a game here that has unique mini golf courses. Of course, there's even a mini golf course better from the Carnival Games series, but forf 500 Wii points with anime characters, who can argue on these mini golf courses? Let's hope there's good 9-hole courses to choose from.

I really want an awesome mini putt game. I've played the flash ones to death. But this looks way too uninspired and the gameplay seems far too easy. And whats up with the holes!?! You could fit a bowling ball in one of those!



KnucklesSonic8 said:

Actually, it's not easy. Especially with regards to the DLC, I've been told that the game's holes can be really challenging.

A floating minigolf course? Puts a new twist on the term "water hazard". While the holes are unique, they don't have that classic minigolf feel to them.
