I'm serious. When I arrived at GameStop to buy this game, the employees there told me that it was very popular and that they only had one copy left, so I bought it being the gullible fool I am. I was also just looking for a good golfing game to give to my mom, and they convinced me this was the one to buy.So a month later, she opened it up on Christmas and found it to be...complicated. So much so that we almost threw the game away. When you first look at the case of the game, you think, "Gee, this could be kind of interesting." But then, when you insert the disc into the Wii, your thoughts quickly revert to the opposite. It this Japanese fantasy theme that is really quite jarring and utterly annoying. Gameplay is nearly impossible at the start if you've never played before, which is acceptable, but when you're trying to listen to the Wiimote plastered over the game screen, you ultimately just wish you were able to play without its help. By the time you've hit the golf ball, you will have triggered every other action in the game.One really annoying feature is the ability of the other player to taunt you, which in the position of the opponent, isn't all that bad. But in the crazy anime fashion that the game is designed, it gets worn out after 30 seconds. The realistic feel this game gives off at purchase is highly misleading that actual gameplay. I wish I had footage of our first go-around on the goldfcourse. It's literally like Mini Golf; if I wanted that, I would've gotten the "Carnival" version. Even the Wii Sports Golf is better than this let-down.Needless to say, we stopped playing after 10 minutes, took it back to the store, and paid an extra $** for the Tiger Woods 2009 Golf edition. If you want the feel of Mini Golf, get the Carnival version, and if you want the realistic feel, go for Tiger Woods or Wii Sports. But by all means...AVOID PURCHASE OF THIS GAME.
