AceGamez Review: Super Swing Golf

Mark Carlton Writes:

"Super Swing Golf, or Pangya as it's known to anyone familiar with its web-based incarnation, is an anime-styled fantasy golf game. This is where Super Swing Golf's first disadvantage rears its head. Pangya, the online multiplayer version of the game, can be played free of charge on any half-decent PC by visiting the Pangya website. So, Super Swing Golf is already up against it in the value stakes, but it also neglects one of the vital elements within its web-based predecessor - the fact that you can play online with other like-minded fantasy golf enthusiasts. However, the console version does manage to trump the online game in some respects; you just don't get the same satisfaction from swinging a keyboard around that you do by using the Wiimote, which is tailor made to simulate a golf club.

Super Swing Golf is no Tiger Woods, and it doesn't pretend to be. If you like the challenge of some of the greatest courses in the world such as St. Andrews, Pebble Beach and Turnberry, this is probably not the game for you. On the other hand, if you fancy playing golf on Pangya Island then you've hit the jackpot. At first glance, Pangya Island has a striking resemblance to certain parts of Isle Delfino in Super Mario Sunshine; it certainly has that cutesy feeling to it, especially as your caddie isn't a human being, but instead resembles what can only be described as a cat that's shaped like a handbag. Please stick with me though, as Pangya Island is a little difficult to explain and anime has a tendency to produce slightly surreal environments, so we shouldn't be surprised."
