With the general Switch line-up when it comes to both RPGs and Sports titles being thinner than would be preferred, my eyes lit up at the prospect of RPGold Legends managing to knock out two under-represented birds with one stone. Alas, though it is a mash-up of both styles, offering a chance to alternate between whacking monsters and golf balls, where it comes up short is in offering up something more satisfying than generic to help elevate it over the merely adequate. Unfortunately, Switch fans in this space will almost undoubtedly be aware of the charming Golf Story, making comparison inevitable. Though it had its own flaws (particularly it losing its way in the final third of play), there’s no single area where RPGolf Legends is able to stand apart with its story feeling generic, its combat and general action too lacking in variety, and its golf mechanics a bit too thin. While it may still provide some hours of enjoyment for those truly starved for a sports RPG, for everyone else it will likely disappoint a bit.
