  1. The fluid and intuitive controls provide a refreshing change of pace, and a great level of challenge. The graphics are well above par for the PSP, and the addition of course creation modes and online play should definitely keep you coming back for more.

    Tiger Woods remains the most accessible golf game, but ProStroke is easily the title for those who find a lack of challenge in its competitors. [Oct 2006, p.124]
  3. ProStroke Golf continues to offer an alternative to EA's gargantuan golfing franchise, even on the PSP, though the decision to drop the first-person perspective when lining up a shot, and the PSP's single-nipple disability, does bring the gameplay gap between the two a tad closer.

    A solid, respectable golf game that should keep pros and amateurs happily stroking in public for hours. [Jan 2007, p.93]
  5. If you're after an extreme and challenging golf simulator – and you're able to overlook some visual shortfalls – PSG is well above par.
  6. Die hard golf gaming fans may get some enjoyment from ProStroke Golf, but there's not much here to excite the average gamer.

    The gameplay is solid and realistic, and a clear departure from the direction of "Hot Shots" and "Tiger Woods PGA Tour."
  8. It looked real and played even more real, but after a few days the sad realization sunk in that this game was just too slow to be played on the PSP.
  9. I wished there was a greater difference in the tweaking of your shot as opposed to just walking up to the ball and hitting it.
  10. While the control scheme for the PSP version of ProStroke Golf is a great attempt to bring the console game to the handheld, it doesn't quite feel as intuitive, and ends up being a little over complex for a PSP game.

    The realistic un-arcade slant is a welcome addition to someone who has been wallowing in golf games that largely feature humongous green pipes and strippers as caddies.
  12. Overall, Prostroke Golf: World Tour 2007 isn't a bad game, although it's below average when it comes to golf. It gets so caught up in trying to faithfully recreate the sport that it forgets what it means to have fun in a portable video game.
  13. Overall ProStroke Golf is like an afternoon spent at an old muni course. You can have some fun with it but overall it’s bland and functional.
  14. ProStroke Golf - World Tour 2007 is a passable effort, but one that fails to bring anything new to the world of golf games.
  15. Purely average, sadly, despite some slightly promising ideas. Accordingly, it gets an average score.
  16. If you are dying for a course editor, then this might be your best bet at making your fantasy golf course on the go. Otherwise, the game is largely forgettable.
  17. ProStroke in a nutshell: A devoted wannabe who shows potential - and who certain golf nuts will probably applaud - but who needs to keep polishing his fundamentals before he can take one from the sport's seasoned pros.
  18. 40
    Each positive aspect is saddled with a few misfires, from the limited customization options to the frequent, boring cut-scenes to the rather basic play modes.
  19. Better than the Xbox and PC versions. Still pretty darn bad.

    As a one player game it's filled to the brim with awkward controls and badly conceived gameplay, as a multiplayer title you may be able to convince a friend to take part in a few rounds, but don't expect them to thank you for it afterwards.
