  1. Combines slick visuals with an awesome game-play engine to deliver a legitimate golfing experience that’s truly a gas to play.
  2. An instant classic, and makes golf more fun while keeping it real.
  3. The controls, though initially frustrating, do deliver the feel and accuracy of the real sport. Couple this with both real and imagined course imbued with the usual EA sense of atmosphere and spectacle and Tiger Woods looks as good as it plays.
  4. Even with some shortcomings, it's the most enjoyable golf game that I've ever played.
  5. Not only is it an accurate technical recreation, but also a surprisingly engaging one. [Mar 2002, p.26]

    While there's room for improvement in terms of graphics and sound, it easily makes up for it in realism.
  7. The swing meter is the only real obstacle to your enjoyment, as it completely changes the way the game feels and plays from more traditional titles.

    Excellent, closest to real golf I have ever seen. The new swing technology is so much better than the old metered swing.

    Once you have mastered the control functions, this is a great game. The configuration of adding power and spin, through none too easy button taps, makes for more realistic gameplay. Expand
