  1. Players will spend most of their time in the new Play Now mode. Here, you're given 50 scenarios where you are immediately thrown into the heart of competition. [Dec 2002, p.90]
  2. One of the most impressive sports games on the market today, and arguably the biggest step forward for golf sims since "Links 386." [Feb 2003, p.79]
  3. If you want a great game to play online, go with "Links"; if you want a great career mode, go with Tiger Woods. Both games are equal (I know, it’s a cop out) and you can’t go wrong with either one.
  4. One of the best sports games to hit the PC this year. While many of the hockey or football games have better graphics and improved gameplay, Tiger Woods 2003 is a whole new experience in itself.
  5. 92
    Arguably the best golf simulation on the market.
  6. If EA Sports increased shot making difficulty and paid a little more attention to golf physics detail, Tiger Woods 2003 would probably be the first game I ever gave close to a perfect score.
  7. Prettier, more exciting, and more involving than any other golf game on the market and can rightfully claim its place alone at the top of the PC golfing leaderboard.
  8. 90
    What pulls it all together and propels the game light years ahead of the competition aesthetically is how everything moves. The motion of the ocean is intoxicating. The cinematic, TV style camera and presentation really add a new dimension of flare and immersion to the genre.
  9. Probably the most visually stunning golf title of the year.
  10. The game presentation is like a television broadcast with an Emmy-winning director in the booth. [Mar 2003, p.106]
  11. Almost every bit as much fun as its Microsoft rival, and at a cheaper price. [Jan 2003, p.122]
  12. Casual and hardcore sports gamers will find this title of the highest quality - a must have for golf fans!
  13. Attractive, accessible and plenty to do – for a golf game, anyway.
