Nintendo Wii Golf

I'm not much a of a video game guy, but I do love Golf...

The commercials for that game where you use the controller as a club looks awesome...

But does it really work? Is it worth the money? Any input?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, the downside to Wii golf is 4 clubs (driver, putter, iron, wedge), and only 9 holes to play. But it's pretty addictive, otherwise.

Especially when you're playing with friends/family. Thats the most addictive aspect of Wii, the interactivity that can be shared together.

I must say at first I discounted the Wii, but its definitely way more fun than the PS3 I bought earlier.

+4 (one for each club). I wasted an entire afternoon when my buddy picked one up, and three of us played 30+ holes, plus a lot of tennis, bowling, and boxing. And the next day, my arms and back were killing me. How sad is that -- a video game has proven to me that I'm out of shape

It definitely makes us feel like kids in that poker night has become wii night. Tennis, boxing, and golf are amazing. I love my ps3 to play by myself when extra free time exists, but the wii is really becoming the new group thing to do

I agree. All the sports games are very interactive and a whole lot of fun. Bowling is very entertaining at higher levels.

I love the golf game, but find green the least interactive portion. Then again, I won't expect any better from a simulator.
