  • Summary: Tiger Woods PGA TOUR on the Nintendo DS retains the hallmarks of the series including legendary courses and world-class golfing. As with the hit version that inspired it, players will take on Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Jack Nicklaus and other golfing greats from past & present. Players create their golfer, develop their skills and step on to the green to challenge the masters on some of the world?s top courses including five licensed and one fantasy courses from the Tiger Woods series. However, unlike any past iteration, this innovative version of the game allows players to utilize touch screen technology to command control of their swing and position their shots like a pro. When they feel truly confident, players can fire up the multiplayer component to challenge up to four friends in wi-fi networked play. Then, see who?s the real master. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. I have to say that for all the minor bad points, and they are minor, I am really enjoying this title and EA has turned out a well presented game which will keep you amused for hours on end.
  2. By far the best handheld golf game to date. [Feb 2005, p.115]
  3. The Legend Tour is limiting, and there isn’t really a challenge system like other Tiger games out there. Also there is a lack of information given to the player, which often keeps you guessing.
  4. Too bad they couldn’t clean up the putting engine and put some more thought into the touch pad sensitivity.
  5. Some people will absolutely love what this game has to offer, but for the most part I think gamers will be more frustrated then thrilled.
  6. In the end, it's a golf game fundamentally redesigned to its detriment, shorn of many of the little things that made up the rest of its appeal, and now merely flawed but enjoyable.
  7. EA tries to innovate with their first DS golf game, the end result is double bogey with a penalty shot. [Spring 2005, p.63]

    The most fun I've ever had playing a handheld game. Graphics are par (like the golf term... eh?) but the gameplay makes up for it ten fold. Also, it's challenging, but not impossible, which makes it worth the money. Expand

    Quite simply, the best handheld golf game ever made! Golf on Nintendo grows up at last!

    The touch swing is fantastic, the graphics are OK but the game is most definitely fun. My pick for the best sports game on DS.

    The toggle is touchy when swinging and the splice capability can not be used to your benefit if you play with a splice technique. However, the ability to create your own golfer and variations you can create your personal golfer is awesome. Its a fun game and it is the best golf game I have played thus so far. Expand

    This game was obviously rushed. The swing control is terrible, the graphics aren't up to par and there are numerous bugs.

    I enjoyed the game until I made it to the professional level. For some reason, EASports decided that it would be more fun if you couldn't win, and the whole thing became a game of frustration. To make sure you don't win, they give one of your opponents a -6 on the first hole, with a par of 5!! What a shame because up until that point it was incredible. Expand
