Mario Golf - Advance Tour Review by: mlb789Mario Golf- Advance Tour
When you think of golf, you will usually think of a boring game that is meant for old people to play. If you play this game, however, you will notice that this game is just as fun for you to play as it is for those old folks to play the real game. Mario Golf- Advance Tour is a game for the Game Boy Advance that follows a few games in the Mario Golf series. In this game, you get to play golf, which seems boring at first, and to be truthful, if you have the attention span of a person with ADD and a sugar high, you'll probably think that this game is too slow for you. But, if you don't have that attention span (and also have the help of Vizzed's fast forward button), you should find out it's a fun game to play. When you first start the story mode, you might think that the will never begin, due to the fact that the cut-scene is that long. When you do get to the game though, I can guarantee that you will be able to say that you had fun playing golf.
Graphics 7: The graphics in this game are pretty good for a GBA game. While it may seem that the characters show their pixels, you should be able to bypass that because of how they paid attention to course design and other things like that.
Sound 8: The sounds in this game are pretty interesting to me, because you get to hear the ball being hit and sounds that you would usually hear at the golf course. Unfortunately though, I would really like to see them get rid of the traditional sounds when a message is scrolling across the screen. Something more modern would be nice.
Addictiveness 10: Even though this is a game about golf, I really liked this game and play it frequently. It may be because I love the Mario sports games for the GBA, but the game is still awesome because of the story mode and the quick play mode. You should have no trouble losing time in this game.
Story 4: I guess there is a story to this game, but it really isn't a good one. You just defeat golf courses and when you do beat them all, you get to face Mario. It really isn't all that interesting.
Depth 10: While the story mode may not take too long to beat, you have hours to spend in the various modes ahead of you. The best part about all sports games is how you can play for hours because of quick play options, or other modes like quick play.
Difficulty 4: This game isn't too difficult, but it has it's moments at times, especially in the Link course. For some reason, I always found that to be the hardest course in the Story Mode.
Overall 8.6: This game is a very good game overall and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Mario, Sports, or both combined.
