    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Excuse another bad pun but the touch swing is touchy. You could make the exact same swing from the tee several times and the ball will take a different direction every time. It is not terrible, but you will have to take time to master this area.

    The attempt to offer a unique touch-screen swing mechanic is definitely respectable, but the first-time solution doesn't work nearly as well or offer as much control as it could have.
  3. Tiger Woods takes good advantage of the capabilities of the DS, and it's easily the most technically accomplished handheld golf game to date.
