    I'm rather disappointed in this title, which may be due to my expectations having been too high for console golf. As a long time player of "Links" on the PC, I would simply say that the Xbox version seems to have derived more - much more, if not most - of it's heritage from EA Sports' Tiger Woods series than it has from it's own legacy. So why call it "Links" then, if I'm rather disappointed in this title, which may be due to my expectations having been too high for console golf.

So why call it "Links" then, if it's not faithful to the franchise? Hopefully the game's only real advantage over its competition - Xbox Live / XSN Sports online play - will make up for some of the disappointment I am feeling. Expand

  2. The fact that you can hit a decent round without having to rely considerably on spin or other advanced techniques means that new 'uns to the sport can almost pick up and play Links, whereas veterans can revel in more realistic gameplay than that of the competition, and feel right at home going after the number one spot on Xbox Live, whilst handing out helpful tips and strategies to people like me.

    Online play affords Links players an option "Tiger" simply can't compete with. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.94]
