Fans of the plucky plumber’s modern tee time outings could have a lot of fun dropping 500 Wii Points here, to experience the grandfather of their favorite game’s current design. But those who’ve never yet hit the links with Mr. Mario would be likely better off to skip the history lesson and jump straight into present day, sticking with the freebie Wii Sports Golf or perhaps picking up a copy of the Wii-compatible GameCube title, Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour.
This is easily the best golf game on the NES, if you are getting a bit bored Wii Sports Golf then you might want to give this a try. It’s a perfectly good game for only 500 Wii points and you will get many hours of enjoyment out of playing through all the courses and game modes. Of course this game is overshadowed by the superior Mario Golf on the N64 which should hopefully come out on the Virtual Console one day, but until then this is a solid purchase.
It's amusing enough if you don't mind missing putt after putt because you can't see how the green slopes because of the chunky pixels, but the only reason to fire this up rather than Wii Sports is to drink from the fountain of quaint nostalgia. While this may be enough to warrant 500 points from your Wii purse, personally I'd be happier paying twice that and getting the N64 version of Mario Golf.
