Fun for even my wife :)

Simple yet addictive. Very casual and I found it pretty fun. Great thing is my wife enjoyed the game too and she really hate my 360!

Just as fun as I remember

This one certainly brings me back to the days of some of my first MP matches!

True to it roots ... frustration and all

A pretty pure port over from the original ... including the frustration of repeated deaths and having to start over! Good thing I got it for free.

Great game

Another fine example of how an XBLA game should be casual. I never played the original card/board game but got hooked into this immediately.

Great casual golf experience.

I decided to give this game a go after becoming frustrated at my "suck level" at Tiger Woods and also how much I enjoyed the Wii Golf game ... cheesy as it may be. Also ... I was jealous of the arcade golf game for the PS3: Hot Shots Golf. Well ... Golf: Tee it Up to the rescue.

Playing this game is ultimately casual and very arcade-like making it exceedingly accessible to any skill level. The graphics are nice and crisp but realism is not the intent here. Controls are very simple, select the club (automatically done as a start), aim, push A once to start the "swing" and a second time to hit the ball. Easy.

While I haven't tried the online play, the options seem rather standard yet complete. Missing are some more advanced features (recording replays, etc.) but that is not unexpected from an Arcade game.

After I played one round I purchased the full version and use it as a nice casual game.

Awsome mash of music, rhythm and shooting

Having a musical background I found this game to be a perfect mash-up of music, rhythm and shooting. You find yourself shooting to the pulsing trance and the game reacts accordingly. Add to this the classic "level-up" approach coupled with a progressive difficulty (the better you do the harder the game is) makes it a very accessible game for all.

I do like the fall back of the level/boss, level-up format and the minimalistic story background made this my casual game of choice for some time.
