Some brand names are clearly visible on apparel, such as Nike caps.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this golf game requires players to get on their feet and swing the remote as if it were a real club, so they'll get a little exercise. Like golf on TV, brand names are visible on sports apparel. While this experience can't mirror playing golf outside in real life, it does allow kids to play with the pros and on courses they would never have access to.
Is It Any Good?
While not perfect -- sometimes the in-game golfer swings or putts before the controller has connected with the ball -- it feels a lot more like real golf than other video games. Chipping and putting also feel remarkably authentic. At any time you can tap the minus button on the controller for a practice shot. The game also includes an instructional tutorial, which younger or newbie golf gamers may find helpful.
There is no online mode for two or more players -- but then again, the Wii is more of a social system that encourages play with someone beside you. Golf fans who own a Wii will want to take a swing with this exceptionally good game.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
