  • Summary: (Also know as "Touch Golf") Experience the feel and finesse of real golf on beautiful 3D courses with True Swing Golf. In this dual-screened Nintendo DS golf game, using the touch screen and the stylus is almost like swinging a golf club in real life. The longer players slide a stylus across the touch screen, the harder they smack the ball. Players also can curve their swings to slice or fade shots and alter the angle of the club head for sharpshooter-like accuracy. True Swing Golf features multiple game modes, character customization and wireless multiplayer support for up to four players with just one game card. [Nintendo] Collapse

    Don't let this game's boring name or boring content fool you. This is one of the best golf games out there.
  2. At times the game seems almost too easy, but you do have to concentrate and often employ strategy to score birdies consistently. [Mar 2006, p.86]
  3. True Swing Golf easily outdoes Tiger Woods in the entertainment department, even if it doesn't host the excitement that the PGA can bring.

    The top screen is completely cosmetic and, in actuality, you'll more than likely have your eyes trained on the bottom screen the majority of the time.
  5. Despite its innovative touch screen swing concept, True Swing Golf simply doesn’t deliver. There isn’t enough customization, gameplay variety, or fun to be found.
  6. The inaccuracy of the swing and shot placement turns into a severe handicap for the game. True Swing Golf is passively entertaining, but won't suck anyone in as quickly or for as long as "Hot Shots" is able to.
  7. If golf was indeed dull, as many non-fans wrongly suspect, True Swing Golf would be the perfect golf game. [Apr 2006, p.90]
