    A far cry from the quality we've come to expect from the series over the years.
  2. Like a pizza covered in chocolate, this game's touch screen swing is appealing for about half a second before you swear it off forever. [Feb 2005, p.125]

    In the end, however, the whole effort seems to fall flat, lacking any kind of ambition and yet acting rather stubbornly on the little inventiveness it does have.
  4. 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 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. Full Review »

    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.

    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 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. Full Review »
