Golf Story's clever writing and sound golf fundamentals keep it entertaining, even through some stale moments. Despite its light-hearted RPG structure, there's a challenging and very real golf game here that's worth coming back to even after the story is over. But it left me wishing that more of the campaign focused on the golf itself, and less on the often repetitive side tasks.
Mario Golf and Earthbound combine for one of the most delightful games you'll find on Nintendo's Switch.
A fantastically charming mix of golf sim and role-playing game, that smooths over its rough edges with its irreverent humour and wild imagination.
Lives up to its name, succeeding both as a riveting golf experience and a narrative that sinks its hooks into you
Sidebar Game's charming golf RPG hits it out of the park.
Even though Golf Story isn't quite what I expected it would be, it is an absolute delight. It's more than just a golf game with RPG mechanics, but it's not quite a full RPG with golf mechanics either. It lies in a sweet spot in the middle, where people who care about one but not the other can still get into it.
I can't stop thinking about this little indie sports RPG – and it deserves the attention.
A golf game with an interesting story and some good variations that keep changing the classic formula.

Fun, quaint and a bit buggy, Golf Story is a lovely but flawed distraction.
