Multiplayer fun with Mario Golf: World Tour


10:00 AM on 03.26.2014



Mario Golf: World Tour features four player multiplayer via online, or local play with just a single cartridge. As it should, but you know the best part of all this? Everyone is playing simultaneously. You don't have to wait for other players to take their turn, you just go about your business and whoever performed the best at the end of the round wins.

If you do clear a course before another player, you'll be able to watch them as they struggle to complete the stage. A nice addition, or an evil one depending on how you view it, is that you can taunt other players throughout a match too. You can give them a round of applause, or you can hit the "hurry up" button to potentially make them sweat a little.

Another neat touch to the overall Mario Golf concept is the inclusion of item blocks. You can either focus on on the course itself, or aim your golf ball to hit the item blocks floating about in stages. One item that you can get from the blocks is bullet bill, which once activated will have your ball reach its destination no matter what obstacles are in the way, such as the wind.

I only had about ten minutes of hands-on time with Mario Golf: World Tour, yet I was able to have fun despite my lack of interest in the sport. Mario Golf launches on May 2 for the 3DS.

Review: Mario Golf: World Tour

It's been about 10 years since we've seen the Mushroom Kingdom gang out on the green, so it was high time for a new Mario Golf title.

It's been too long since I've played Mario Golf, it's underwater now

It feels like it's been forescore since I've played Mario Golf. Maybe the 3DS' upcoming World Tour is a good place to rectify that. Or maybe I'll finally take a swing at Hot Shots. Then again, The Golf Club has the best name...more

Review: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

From the moment I played the Captain Toad minigame in Super Mario 3D World, I thought to myself "this would make a great downloadable title." It seems as if Nintendo can hear my thoughts, because it did just that. Priced at a...more

I never thought Super Mario Bros. would make me so angry

In a cramped beachside arcade, sandwiched between Galaga and Mortal Kombat 3, sits my white whale. It's surrounded by restaurants, a roller coaster, churro vendors, and a carousel, this sad little Super Mario Bros. arcade cab...more

An irony-free feel good fan video about Dads

There is a whole genre of comedy dedicated to uncomfortable emotions about Dads. Pierre's Doo Dah Doo Doo rap is one example. That's doesn't mean there isn't plenty of room in the internet's heart for honest, not-weird affec...more
