  1. Tiger PSP is one of those games that you need to buy on this handheld whether you like sports games or not, as it showcases what possibilities lay within the PSP.
  2. Despite a few rough edges (blurred textures, loading pauses galore, etc.) this is easily the best licensed golf simulation ever released on a portable console.
  3. It's a toss up between this and Hot Shots Golf for supremacy on the PSP, but if realistic presentation takes precedence over quirky anime-inspired design, Tiger is the game, load times or not.
  4. An extremely solid - if uninspired - port of the Tiger franchise that's every bit as addictive as its PS2 counterparts. [June 2005, p.99]
  5. Not as good as the PS2 version, sadly, but still just the sort of game you'll love on lengthy coach trips. It could do with a bit more polishing next time out, though. [PSM2]
  6. The analog nub is too sensitive for the series' signature swing system. [May 2005, p.98]
  7. Tiger Woods on the PSP suffers from the same problem as the rest of EA’s first batch of PSP games: long-ass loading times. You don’t get a good feeling for the swings using the PSP’s analog pad, which just isn’t accurate enough. Still, the PSP version has almost all the game modes from the home console versions and the new Legend Tour is quite fun as is equipping and upgrading your golfer. One of the EA’s best games in their first batch of games on the PSP. [Sept 2005, p.61]

    This is my favorite game on PSP. It has a surprising amount of depth, and is great to just pick up and play a few holes.

    The best game for the PSP thus far. I think they actually *improved* on the last gen console versions (Tiger Vision putting is a welcome absence). Challenging, well thought out, and thoroughly addictive. Expand

    This is a very solid game for the PSP, especially considering it is a first generation game. Controlling the swing with the analog nub is not as difficult as some reviewers make it out to be, and with practice it becomes second-nature. The usual TW PS2 putting system is also in play here, so you don't have to control the swing of the putter as much as you do the aiming cursor placement; you can fully swing the putter and no matter how close you are and drain putts. I have had some problems with short approach shots, but this is a minor gripe and nothing that going up another club and adjusting the swing doesn't cure. The depth and unlockables add to the overall value, and I highly recommend it for all golf enthusiasts. Expand

    Very solid and fun game- graphics are amazing! Especially the Japanese golf course. Load times are acceptable, but I loved the game- lots of depth (haven't been playing long- but its awesome so far) Expand

    I was pretty hyped up about getting this game. Unfortunately, after about an hour put into it, I got frustrated because it was really hard and never played it since. Wouldn't recommend it to the casual gamer. Expand
