  1. No other golf sim has looked and played this good. Ever. Period.

    There are so many modes, options, toggles, and otherwise configurable aspects of Tiger 2002 that it's utterly terrifying.
  3. One of the best golf simulations that appeared in quite some time. The TrueSwing technology has been definitely perfected, making this a REAL Golf simulation.
  4. Just about every aspect of the game's design has undergone some type of change, from the radically improved swing interface and the use of 3D golfer animations instead of digitized motion-capture footage, to a powerful camera option that gives you unlimited access to the gorgeously rendered courses.
  5. Sits comfortably between the hardcore elements of the stately "Links," and the cutesy arcadeness of more console-orientated golf. [PC Format]
  6. A joy to play. The voiceovers and multiple camera angles continue the series' entertaining tradition.
  7. Not enough of a game to knock "Links" off my leader board. [May 2002, p.77]
  8. TrueSwing is an unparalleled re-creation of what it's like to actually swing a golf club, and the visual touches provide you with nearly everything that a membership at a real-world club can offer. There is no finer simulation of golf.
  9. Like playing on a beautiful course in the middle of the summer in the deep South – it's a lot of fun, but the bugs can really get to you. [June 2002, p.92]

    Worst golf sim I've ever played. Full of bugs and poorly designed. They got my money, but don't let 'em get yours!

    If you want to have fun play this game on the ps2. The pc version is boring. Tru-swing sucks without the analog stick.
