Mario Golf: Super Rush

Mario Golf: Super Rush Review

This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast,  Cameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill tee up for a smashing episode filled with golfing thrills, traditional fighting game action, and little humanoid robot companions. The gang start things out by discussing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai’s latest presentation about Tekken’s Kazuya, celebrating the lovingly-crafted mechanics and robust moveset while mourning the deaths of so many Smash fan’s dreams of future DLC thanks to the reveal of a new set of Mii fighter skins. While it’s sad that Smash Ultimate is nearing the end of its active update period with only one new DLC character on the horizon, there is still so much to love about the title’s massive roster and endless amounts of love and care put into it.

The hosts swing into a heated discussion in the Main Event, where Marc takes the stage to review the recently-released Mario Golf: Super Rush. It may not be a solid hole-in-one, but Marc guides the hosts through everything there is to know about the many ups and downs of hitting the links on Nintendo’s latest golfing escapade. Even if it lacks in some areas, Super Rush delivers some of the series’ best new modes along with a range of rock-solid mechanics that make it a fun multiplayer romp. Lastly, Campbell gives a brief shoutout to Out of Line, a quintessentially short, sweet, and to-the-point puzzle platformer that provides a few hours of painterly puzzling that’s sure to offer a comfort food experience for fans of the genre.
