Come for the great golf sim, stay for the hilarious dialogue. Golf Story, the 2017 Switch exclusive is part RPG part sports adventure game.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked this game up. I just knew that something about it had grabbed my attention. My best friend and I both picked up copies at the same time and played it together. And, even though neither of us are sports people, we both absolutely loved it. A big part of that is because it’s not just a golf sim. The RPG elements are interesting and engaging, and the gameplay is really good.
But what really makes Golf Story stand out is the writing. It’s one of the funniest games I’ve ever played, and the Seinfeld-style comedy doesn’t slow as you progress through the game. It takes less than 20 hours to beat, and with a Metacritic score of 78%, it’s definitely worth looking into. Trailer below!
