    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 has limitations, and something should've been done with the putting game outside of selecting a manual option. Aside from that, it's a decent golf offering for PSP owners, especially those seeking a challenge.

    Play Tiger Woods 08 and skip this year's tour. It's a much more polished game with a lot more features.
  3. Shorn of many of last year's features and lumbered with an awkward control method, Tiger Woods 09 singularly fails to improve on its predecessor and in many respects is a definite regression.
  4. While Tiger 09 is still a mostly solid golf experience (the best on the PSP) I cannot recommend this title over previous Tiger games. This game is a significant step back in gameplay that lacks some of the most vital elements.

    An ok game, not nearly as fun as woods 08, which is more fun to play. the analog driving is more difficult and less satisfying, and the An ok game, not nearly as fun as woods 08, which is more fun to play. the analog driving is more difficult and less satisfying, and the proshop offers fewer options to enhance your character, plus it takes alot longer to load. finally, i cant figure out how to take the hat off of my character. the graphics are superior to the 08 version, but the colors arent as vibrant. overall, a decent game, but it failed to hold my attention over time as much as the previous version.

    This version struggles to better last years game on PSP, the main negative being the ridiculous putting mechanic-using the analogue swing This version struggles to better last years game on PSP, the main negative being the ridiculous putting mechanic-using the analogue swing makes it almost impossible to gauge a putt under 100% strength! On the plus side, the selection of courses is superb and varied-20 courses on a handheld golf game is amazing!! If you havent got last years game buy it, if you have then wait another year for EA to fix the things that didnt need messing with in the first place ie.the putting! Full Review »
