    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.

    There's a vast amount of options when it comes to single-player, and if you have someone to play with the wi-fi is great. Still, when it all comes down to it, the home versions are simply better.

    If I bought one golf game this year, this would be it, hands down. [Nov 2005, p.123]

    Leaps and bounds better than the previous edition, and a worthwhile recommendation to anyone who loves golf.
  7. Best of all, however, the loading time is significantly improved, almost to the point that there really isn't any.
  8. The load times are dramatically better, and the controls are less frustrating, but it doesn’t offer anything more from a gameplay standpoint.

    The latest offering on PSP is a much improved, almost-mirror image of the console versions in most places that count. [Nov p.100]
  10. Those with sausage digits may want to stick to the more arcadey "Everybody's Golf," but otherwise Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2006 is in every way the superior golf game. [PSW]
  11. If you've not yet picked up a PSP golf game yet, this is the one to get. Its value to someone who picked up EA's first PSP offering, however, isn't quite as clear-cut.
  12. Not a huge leap over 05, but the new modes and features may warrant the quick purchase if you just have to have the latest and greatest of the series on PSP. Next season I expect no less than a Career Mode, or else... ya hear me EA?

    This is the ultimate version of the game to own.

    "Hot Shots" still rules the greens of the PSP. [Dec 2005, p.190]

    Still dry as hell and frustrating on occasions, but immensely playable nonetheless. A smart alternative to "Everybody's Golf." [Christmas 2005, p.105]

    I think this is the best game available on the PSP console so far (I would so far as to rank it above GTA and SOCOM although those are good I think this is the best game available on the PSP console so far (I would so far as to rank it above GTA and SOCOM although those are good games as well). 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. Full Review »

    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. Full Review »

    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.
