Mario Golf Toadstool Tour
Very Good, Complete
A great sequel to the original Mario Golf that appeared on the Nintendo 64, and although there has been other Mario Golf sequels on handheld consoles like the GBA & 3DS, they've never managed to topple my personal favourite version on the Gamecube.
The game runs at a silky smooth 60fps and is probably one of the most simple, elegant, and fun Golf games you're ever likely to play but that doesn't mean its not a challenge. There is so much to do in this game with plenty of modes, courses, characters, and unlockables that will keep you busy for quite some time. It's a perfect example of a game that is extremely easy to get into, but difficult to master.
There are 16 playable characters in total, each with a set of golfing statistics defining their style of play. The game's main mode involves the player competing in tournaments to obtain new features, although the alternative modes consist of training sessions and variations to the golf format. One of these includes "Ring Attack", requiring the player to hit the ball through rings of varying sizes while remaining on or under par.
This game also included DLC to an extent, where players could transfer characters between Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour and Mario Golf: Advance Tour using the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance Cable. The truth is, these extra 'human-like' characters are already on the game disc but they require an overly expensive way to unlock them (in other words, what I like to refer to as 'Disc Locked Content'), but with a special downloadable save file somewhere on the net, you can obtain them alot easier if need be.
