What is Wii Golf?

Wii Golf is one of the 5 sports simulations games that can be found within the Wii Sports game series that comes bundled with the Nintendo Wii when you first buy it.

From Wikipedia:

Wii Sports is a video game produced by Nintendo for the Wii. It was a launch title, and is included as a pack-in game with the Wii console in all territories except Japan, making it the first game included with the launch of a Nintendo console since Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991.

Wii Sports is a collection of five sports simulations, designed to demonstrate the motion-sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote to new players. Players use the Wii Remote to mimic actions performed in real life sports, such as swinging a tennis racket. The rules for each game are simplified in order to make them more accessible to new players. The sports included are tennis, baseball, bowling, golf, and boxing.

Wii Sports is part of an ongoing series of games sometimes referred to as the Wii Series. This series includes Wii Play and the upcoming Wii Music, Wii Fit and Wii Chess.

And what can we find in the Wii Golf game?

In Golf, the player can choose the appropriate strength with which to swing. The player can adjust the direction of the play as well as which club to use. The direction of the play should take into account wind strength and direction. After each swing, the player moves to the ball’s new location and swings again. The faster the player swings the controller, the further the ball will fly. Swinging the controller too fast will cause the ball to slice or hook and the player controls the direction with the D-pad. Putting requires more delicacy. Multiplayer with up to four people is supported with one or more Wii Remote. All nine holes found in the Golf game are actually 3-D versions of holes from the NES game Golf.

We are new Wii owners and love the golf. We like the wind, the trees and our little Miis. We are playing at about 6 under par.

We are ready for new courses but would like them to be similar the the expecience of the wii sports golf. We can’t tell if in the Tiger Woods game you can still play with your Miis.

Silly but its all so new to us….

After Wii golfing for about 1 month and having played golf regularly in the past I make the following observations about a thoroughly enjoyable game versus real golfing:

1. Wind effect is over exaggerated in Wii
2. You will never putt as well as you putt in Wii (10 foot putts are not routine and you will rarely make a 20-25 foor putt
3. Wow, for the life of me, I cannot master Tiger Woods putting. Perhaps one ruins the other.
