  1. Tiger Woods remains the most accessible golf game, but ProStroke is easily the title for those who find a lack of challenge in its competitors. [Oct 2006, p.124]
  2. If you're a purist for how hard it is in real life, you need to give this one a swing.
  3. Great ides, then, and if only the execution had matched it we might have had a contest in the world of PC golf. [Dec 2006, p.98]
  4. ProStroke Golf could have a bright future, if they would address the technical issues and bring the presentation up to par. As it stands, the game is worth a shot, but it may not hold your interest for very long.
  5. ProStroke Golf - World Tour 2007 is a deeply flawed game that fails to bring anything new to the world of golf games.
  6. ProStroke Golf could have been a contender. But its solid play mechanics aren't enough to overcome the near-complete lack of licensed courses and golfers, or the various other oversights and issues that plague it.
  7. I give ProStroke Golf ā€“ World Tour 2007 points for innovation. You know me; Iā€™m a sucker for trying new things in sports gaming. But, the new controls do not come close to making up for what is essentially a poorly-made game.

    People who actually play golf will appreciate the control possible with the dual sticks. Gamers won't like it because it's not People who actually play golf will appreciate the control possible with the dual sticks. Gamers won't like it because it's not "pretty". Scores much more realistic than TW. Expand

    Not only are the graphics terrible, the game play is no match for Links 2004. Even the price of renting this is too much!
