    Review Mario Golf

    Serious Golf for Serious Plumbers

    You could argue that the best part of many of the Mario sports titles is that they bring goofy, lighthearted aspects to those pastimes. Games like Super Mario Strikers and Mario Hoops: 3 on 3 all make dramatic changes to the sports they're portraying, capturing the attention of players who might not be interested in...

  • News Snazzy Golf Balls Added to Club Nintendo in PAL Regions

    Save 'em for summer

    Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo Australia / New Zealand have had a reasonable recent record of adding neat products to Club Nintendo, and it's now swung into action with a rather attractive golf ball set.

    Review Mario Golf: Advance Tour

    Like Golden Sun, if all the weapons were golf clubs

    Mario is a surprisingly active fellow. We've said it before and we'll say it again — the doughy little guy is a total sports nut, and he owes much of this to the kind developers at Camelot, who have a gift for creating really solid titles that allow him to strut his stuff. Like previous titles in...

  • Guide Getting Into The Swing Of Mario Golf: World Tour

    An excellent approach

    Mario Golf: World Tour has arrived on 3DS, and if it's not on your current wishlist you should perhaps reconsider. It takes the basics of golf and smothers them in Super Mario charm, with a careful blend of solid mechanics and typical Mushroom Kingdom zaniness. Whether an inexperienced player or a skilled gamer, it accommodates...

    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 Mushroom Kingdom to meet up for various extra-curricular activities, and golf is a...

    Wants your green for more greens

    Earlier today Nintendo confirmed details for DLC in Mario Golf: World Tour, which has prompted plenty of spirited debate.

  • Preview Mario Golf: World Tour

    Swinging to the fore

    Mario Golf: World Tour has had an odd history to date. Announced in early 2013 for a "Summer" release, it was quietly pushed back to later in the year before drifting into 2014 with little attention going its way; perhaps distracted by the sheer range of hot releases on 3DS throughout the year and the ongoing issues and talking...

    Review Mario Golf

    A beautiful day on the links

    Released in 1999 to dovetail with the N64 game of the same name, the Game Boy Color version of Mario Golf is more than just a scaled-back, portable edition. In fact, it stands well enough on its own merits, and it's almost unfortunate that it shares a name with its console counterpart; it really does have an identity all...

    Mario hits the links

    After Mario's forays into non-platforming genres, such as Mario Kart, Mario's Picross and Dr. Mario, Nintendo realized something: Whatever you put Mario in, it will sell. Soon after, they made loads of Mario sports games - Starting with Mario's Tennis on the Virtual Boy, Nintendo soon made the plumber try golf, and, more...
