  1. What EA Sports' "NHL 2002" is to videogame hockey,..."PGA Tour 2002" has become to videogame golf: the simulation standard-bearer to beat.
  2. An instant classic, and makes golf more fun while keeping it real.
  3. Combines slick visuals with an awesome game-play engine to deliver a legitimate golfing experience that’s truly a gas to play.

    Simply put, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2002 does so many things right that it’s hard to imagine any golf game that existed before it, "Links" included.
  5. 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.

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