Summary

Let me start out by saying that this is not the best Tiger Woods game out there. It is however the best Tiger Woods game on the DS, because it's the only one. I actually enjoy playing this game, it is an entirely different experience on th DS. The swing system isn't as good as it could have been, but definitely innovative. It has a fair amount of courses, and players to choose from, and will satisfy any gamer that enjoys golf. The create a character system wasn't as good as explained on the box, but is a major step up for handhelds, other than Tiger Woods for the PSP. I hope EA puts out another TW game soon, I think we have all waited long enough. With a few minor tweaks, and maybe some more character options and courses, this game would be excellent. If you love golf, pick this game up, you wont be disappointed.

Summary

I had high hopes for Tiger Woods for the DS. I really did. I love the series on Xbox and I didn't expect it to be perfect. But I at least expected it to be playable! The instruction manual is a joke (no surprise from an EA sports title) and their is no practice mode. If you want to try out some different ideas with your swing (rhythm, speed, distance) you have to play at least 3 holes! Argh.
I knew that their won't be a in depth create a player mode, but I did expect that their would be more than a few hair styles and headgear. Argh.
I didn't think I would be able to get different types of clubs as on the consoles, but is it too much to ask to be able to chose which 14 clubs you want in your bag? Argh.
I guess the one positive is that their is finally a Tiger Woods that is challenging. Unfortunately, it is too challenging too quickly. After an over an hour of playing I got "stuck" playing the just the 5th Legend Challenge because I was a mixture to: too bad, too unlucky, and just too under skilled to beat a challenge. Now I am forced to play throwaway rounds to get some cheap cash or keep hoping that Justin Rose stops making 50 footers. Argh. And seriously, I thought this was Tiger Woods PGA Tour. What happened to the PGA season?!? I am not talking about 30+ tournaments. But please. How about a dozen to 20. Argh.
Overall. I give it an Argh. Another DS title that I get with hopes of filling some free time and I want to eject before the new game smell is gone.




While great at first sight, you later on realize- there are many improvements that can be made.

Summary

If you like golf games, this is the game for you. Of course, Tiger Woods PGA is really the only golf game, so it ends up competing with past years' games rather than other brands. The game is definitely not as good as the next year's game will be, because there are no licenced brands (you cant really customize your character), there are many bugs, and a lack of many professional players and courses limits the game's playability. However, the game redeems itself because of the integration of the touch screen controls. The swinging system takes a bit of practice to get used to, but is very realistic and allows you to put spin on the ball. You do not need to choose clubs before you swing, but for veteran players, this is a drawback. The "Pocket Caddy" feature lets you choose clubs (sort of) but restricts choosing to certain types of shot, which is bad because it sometimes chooses the wrong type of shot. The Pocket Caddy also helps you putt correctly, but your DS will sometimes get choppy/freezy while reading the green.

There is a tournament game mode that takes you on tours through 3 difficulties, and each one is different. When you win these (or play a lot of practice matches) you earn money with which you can buy stat upgrades for your player, but you cant but new gear, and there is no internet mode. However, you can play in ad-hoc (local) multiplayer with up to 3 other people.

Although this golf game isn't a hole in one, it is definitely on par. If you take this series (Tiger Woods) less seriously, or give it a little more of a chance because it is on the DS, you will be pleasantly surpised.

Summary

Tiger Woods PGS Tour is Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 thrown over onto the DS. The game came out around the time of the DS launch and it wasn't received all that well. I thought that this game was a great game. It brought all my favorite elements of Tiger Woods from the consoles and I really enjoyed this game. The graphics may not be the best ever but other than that this is a fun DS that takes full advantage of the touchscreen features. Some might argue that Tiger Woods PGA Tour on the DS is one of the ugliest games that they have ever played on the DS, and though that may in fact be true the graphics are not to the point where you cannot figure out what is going on. The ball is easy to find and the environments do have things like houses in the background and things like that, that add to the feeling of playing a console version of Tiger Woods. Control wise this game controls well. You use the stylus to control the power of your swing and how straight it is. If you are used to the controls of the consoles than this will take some getting used to, but once you master it you soon realize that there was no other way that they could have had the controls be. The controls in this game are pretty good once you get used to them. The multiplayer is here as well, so you can play with your friends who also own a Nintendo DS. Anyway I have no complaints here and the multiplayer in this game is pretty fun if you know people with the handheld as well. The sound in this game is on par (no pun intended) with what you would expect from a golf game on the DS. They are not the greatest that you will find in a DS title and it doesn't feature the one music track that Madden 2005 had. Overall Tiger Woods PGA Tour DS is a fun game and should not be missed if you own a DS and are a fan of golf, and now you can finally take it on the go with in the form of a fun game (other than Mario Golf that is). The fact that you can just randomly turn the game off and have the game waiting on the hole you were on when you shut it off without having to save just makes the title feel even more portable. It is the perfect game to have whether you are playing for ten minutes or an hour Tiger Woods PGA Tour DS is the way to go. Pros: + Great swing control + Great portable feeling + Can play game for any lengths + Lengthy career mode + If your friends want to play multiplayer is really fun Cons: - Graphics could be better… - … and so could the sound




excelent gameplay and just love this game very much

Summary

From the first time i've got my Sony Ericsson M600, i just love this game, it' has a medium graphic quality but excelent in gameplay.. easy but challenging.. it only takes less then an hour to mastered this game.. i enjoy it so much that i couldn't stop playin' it.. it has a custom shop features that you can buy several things like hats, shirts, shoes, even golf sticks... the gameplay is excelent, you could beat your opponents (computer) not that easy so it still challenging.... but i'm still trying to finished this game, by getting all of the trophys... also the fun part is for me is we can increase players skill (in career mode) by following some practices that will need some money to get into it...
