  1. This, as of right now, is the de facto standard in high-end golf games, and no golf-game fan should be without it.
  2. Above and beyond the course designer, the online play, or the graphics, this is what makes Links 2001 the golf game of champions in my mind -- the ability to create an even playing field for anyone who wants to join in.
  3. When you get right down to it, this is the best-looking, best-playing, and most full-featured golf game on the market, bar none.
  4. While Links 2001 isn't sufficiently superior enough to pull anyone away from "PGA Championship Golf," it'll definitely please Links fans, especially once the promised course-converter becomes available.
  5. With the addition of the course designer and the improved graphics engine, diehard Links fans will definitely want to get their hands on this year's model.
  6. As close to golf you're going to get this winter. The only thing missing from this one are the beverages, the golf carts, and the camaraderie between friends.
  7. This is one bandwagon I'm not going to jump on simply because the name Links is involved.
