Capcom We Love Golf!
We don't take golf seriously
- Lots of depth, lots of fun for the family
- Club physics take getting used to, not exactly a game for anyone who takes their golf seriously
Players who've wrung all they can out of Wii Sports will appreciate We Love Golf if they're not looking for anything too serious. But if you draw the line at pirate-themed golf courses, avert your eyes, matey.
Price$ 89.95 (AUD)
Developed by the Camelot, the minds behind Mario Golf and Mario Tennis, We Love Golf! displays a flair for bubbly, fun fare!
We Love Golf is to professional golf what Guitar Hero is to touring on stage. Anyone expecting a professional package will blanch at the talking Wii remote tutor, but a family of four whose skills don't go far beyond the local Putt-Putt will have a good time. The game guides players in with short, animated tutorials: each player (up to four) chooses a bouncy, golf-crazy avatar. There are several courses to choose from and plenty to be unlocked, from basic setups you'd see at any country club to pirate-themed swashbuckling adventures complete with wind and rain.
Though We Love Golf is as accessible as a golf game can be, there is definitely an adjustment period for anyone who's used to more realistic golfing fare on the Wii. The Wii remote is still the key to the action, but regular golf club physics don't apply. Instead, the player must swing the Wii remote to "tag" a shadow-club on screen. The better the tag and follow-through, the more accurate the swing. Though unfamiliar, this original means of golfing feels great after surprisingly little practice. There is definitely a learning curve, though, and it may frustrate anyone who just wants to swing like crazy, a la Wii Sports.
Unlike Wii Sports, however, We Love Golf is equipped with plenty of features to keep even single players busy. There are the standard tournaments that are scored accordingly, but there are also minigames that involve shooting the ball through rings, or as close to a certain target as possible. Golfers can go online and chum around on the courses with their friends or go head to head with someone less familiar.
We Love Golf's best feature is the ability to unlock lots of Capcom's characters as golfers. Zack and Wiki make an appearance, as do some of the Street Fighters and Dark Stalkers. Ken's always been a bit of a bum, so the World Warrior looks perfectly at home schlepping the day away on a golf course.
We Love Golf's graphics are suitably bright and cheerful and the music isn't anything special, but it won't drive anyone to suicide. The talkative Wii remote tutor is another story, as he has all the usefulness and charm of a Windows Office mascot. Thankfully, he can be turned off.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
