Gameplay[edit]

We Love Golf! is played by swinging the Wii Remote like a golf club. There are numerous courses in the game, including a beach resort and a desert ruin, as well as courses based around pirate and candy themes.[1]

The game allows players to use Mii avatars as playable characters.[2] In addition, a number of Capcom costumes can be unlocked.[1]

The European, North American and Australian releases of the game also feature online play via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.[3]

We Love Golf! was met with positive to average reception upon release, as GameRankings gave it a score of 73.28%,[4] while Metacritic gave it 75 out of 100.[5]

Before the game was released, editors and journalists complained about the difficulty of the putting system. Upon its release in North America, the putting had seen a drastic overhaul to make it much easier. Most reviews had complained that the putting was now too easy, since Camelot took the negative feedback on putting difficulty so critically.
