  1. This year's PSP Tiger has cut its load times down to a mere eight or nine seconds per hole. That alone is enough to make this a "must buy." [Nov 2005, p.98]
  2. PGA Tour 06 addresses the main gripe with the previous portable entry, adds a number of new courses, and includes some of the recent changes found in the console version of the game.
  3. The improvements over the launch title are immense but the overall changes to the gameplay mechanics just make this an addictive treat.

    Leaps and bounds better than the previous edition, and a worthwhile recommendation to anyone who loves golf.
  5. If I bought one golf game this year, this would be it, hands down. [Nov 2005, p.123]
  6. Best of all, however, the loading time is significantly improved, almost to the point that there really isn't any.
  7. Still dry as hell and frustrating on occasions, but immensely playable nonetheless. A smart alternative to "Everybody's Golf." [Christmas 2005, p.105]

    This is easily the best game out on the PSP so far. I was a bit iffy about trading in Everybody's golf for this, but now I am so happy. This is easily the best game out on the PSP so far. I was a bit iffy about trading in Everybody's golf for this, but now I am so happy. Brilliant graphics and Gameplay is class. Loading time is nearly non existent. Excellent game for anyone with even a slight interest in golf. Expand

I bought it a few months ago and I still play it often. I've never bought a golf game on any console before and I am not a very avid golf fan, but I still really like this game. Expand

    This is a solid golf game. It has all the features that you would expect from the franchise and a user friendly interface that to me, borders This is a solid golf game. It has all the features that you would expect from the franchise and a user friendly interface that to me, borders on making gameplay too easy. That is my main complaint about the game. Most gamers will find little to challenge their skills here and in my opinion that will limit replayability over the long term. I recommend this game regarldess of whether or not you are a fan of golf or the EA franchise, because I think most gamers will have hours of enjoyment playing Tiger Woods '06. Expand

    Tiger woods is not a quick pick up and play type of game, dont get me wrong TW is a good looking golf game with long loading times, If you Tiger woods is not a quick pick up and play type of game, dont get me wrong TW is a good looking golf game with long loading times, If you like golf and you like fun at the same time then Tiger woods is not that game, if you want a good fun golf game may i suggest Everybodys Golf. if you want golf long loading times and no atmosphere then Go for tiger woods.
