Is anyone else looking forward to Mario Golf?

Man, I had a blast with this game. One of the few games that I could have fun with solo, with friends, and even with the fiancee. I think its going to drop on the 28th, and I will be picking it up. Hopefully Mario Tennis gets a street date soon too.

Anyone else like the original or looking forward to the new title?

The original was a lot of fun, and I look forward to EGM's review of this in the next issue.

Yes, from everything I've seen it looks like Camelot has produced another fun golf game.

I don't know why Nintendo isn't hyping this one. I mean, it's Mario after all, and the first game was excellent.

I'm pretty pumped about this also.

The guy at Gamestop said that it would be out on 7-29, but the Amazon.com site says 7-31. Anyone know which is correct?

Okay, I didn't know what the hype was about the GB Player and I ended up buying one. So what is the hype with this game? Can someone who thinks golf is boring enjoy this? Is it like mini-golf with obstacles? What is it that makes it fun?

well, it's golf. Which is great in it's own right. And it's Mario. Another plus.

Add to that Nintendo's ability to add fun to almost any game, and you get this. A fun golf game.

its a mixture of both really (at least if it follows the same formula as the other one).

you have some regular holes and then some "tweeked" holes with funky layouts and obsticles. plus they throw in cool mini-games (i believe mini-golf was one). nintendo can make everything fun, and this is no exception. the last one was a complete blast.

Does anyone who've played the demo tell us if the mechanics is close to tiger woods or the 3point click of hot shots golf.

N64 version was the 3point click, haven't played the demo for this one though.

What could be more fun than swinging Mario's wood?

The demo had two different swings; auto & manual. The auto appeared to be just one button push and the manual 3pc. The demo also had a menu option for GBA connectivity. Anyone know details? The demo for PN03 was cool too.

Thanks...

I might get it but I thought the n64 one was bland and boring.

I can't wait for this one either. There's just no better way to spend a lazy summer afternoon than to sit in the air conditioning and play some Mario Golf.

I think the only way I would enjoy a golf game/ golf in general is if female porn stars were the caddys. And each time a person made under par the caddy would take off a peice of clothing, until they are completely nude and start strattiling the clubs and do the Happy gilmore ridding the bull dance.
