  • Summary: Swing into action with the first-ever PS2 golf game from Electronic Arts in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2001. In all, six pro golfers take to the green on three real-life courses including SpyGlass Hill, Pebble Beach, and Poppy Hills as they swing and putt their way through exact replicas of all 18 holes. The varied modes of play are now supported by two new entries, Challenge and Play-Now, in addition to such returning staples as Match, Skins, and Stroke. Making use of the PS2's additional graphical capacity over its PS1 counterpart, the game also boasts fully-rendered 3D environments and players, as well as an enhanced analog control system that makes use of the PlayStation's Dual Shock 2 enhancements.

  1. Lost man-hours this week are a solid testament to this game's gripping compulsiveness. It's one of the most addictive PS2 games yet produced. Strange, but true.

    The best PS2 golf game out there.
  3. For right now I would only recommend a purchase to somebody who doesn’t become easily bored by the same course over and over again.
  4. "Swing Away Golf" may lack the visual realism and quick load times of TWPT2001, but it offers more bang for the buck, with crisper, more detailed graphics; more replay value; and ball physics that are about as accurate.
  5. There is innovation certainly, but under the startlingly brilliant control scheme lies a golf game every bit as staid and archaic as any in memory.
  6. While not deep modewise, I found the game charming enough to keep my interest and ultimately give me enjoyment.
  7. The most frustrating aspect of this game is not its general mediocrity, but that it is so close to being a genuinely good golf game. It has all the makings, and with some minor tweaking of the controls and a bit of graphical cleanup, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2001 could have been an exceptional title.

    It has great game play and the speed is better than most golf games I've played. Using the joystick is a lot easier and is a relief from hitting x all game long. Expand
