Product Description

Product Description

Links the renowned golf franchise has been rebuilt from the ground up exclusively for the Xbox video game system to deliver one of the most realistic and competitive golf experiences with Links 2004. Utilising revolutionary new Web-based technology exclusive to XSN Sports titles, gamers and golf fans worldwide will have the ability to organise and compete online in friendly matches with old golfing buddies and organise their own tours and tournaments via Xbox Live. Links 2004 also features top championship courses and top professionals, including cover athlete Sergio Garcia.

Links 2004 makes players feel like real pros as they compete in tournaments broadcast in remarkably realistic TV-style presentation. Players are put in the centre of intense action with commentary from TV legends. You can start a career with virtually nothing save for desire, some talent and average equipment. You can work hard, win and become the world's No. 1 player by winning coveted golf championships on the world's greatest courses and earning sponsorships from some of the greatest golf-equipment manufacturers for additional income and better gear. A player's gallery of fans will grow and cheer as he or she competes against the field for larger purses and tour prestige.

The detailed golf environments mean that players can hit the sweet spot for a 300-yard drive and roll in a 20-foot putt for a birdie, while experiencing the dew-covered fairways and crosscut greens. Links 2004 offers gamers the ultimate golf experience. The top courses from around the world come to life with animated water, ocean surf, 3-D trees, divots, galleries of golf fans that react to players' shots, and golf course wildlife including birds, ducks, squirrels and gophers. The lifelike courses feature sun-cast shadows that change depending on the time of day, birds that are spooked when a ball hits a tree, and ducks that will scatter when a ball hits the drink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Links 2004 - Great Game 21 May 2004
This is a great game. It has the best graphics I've seen in any golf game so far.
There are 9 courses to play (1 fantasy course), and they all look great. Also, if you've got xbox live, you can download additional courses. Also, you can join tournaments, or start your own and play with people worldwide if you like, or just play along with some friends if you like.
It's also a great single player game, with the possibility to play tournaments on several tours, or play a single round of strokeplay, stableford, skins or matchplay (many others as well).
A great feature is that you have 3 difficulty levels. This is great since it keeps the game alive a lot longer.
The nicknames you pick for you player pretty much suck, though, but it doesn't really matter.
Compared to Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004, it's quite similar. It doesn't have as many courses available, but the courses you have look a lot better. Also the fade/draw option and spin control is a bit different. Everything is done ahead of the shot, so you can't manipulate the shot after the stroke. This adds a lot more realism to the game.
Customizing your player is a lot more simplistic than in TW 2004, so the players aren't that personal. Also, the swing animations are a bit better in TW. Otherwise, there's nothing to complain about.
Anyway, it's a great game. If you're looking for lots of courses to play, go for TW 2004. That game gets very easy, way too fast, though.
If you're looking for superb graphics, and somewhat more of a challange, go for Links 2004.

4.0 out of 5 stars Links 2004 Xbox 2 Jan 2004
By A Customer
After playing Tiger Woods 2003 I was hooked on golf games. So, one of my first purchases for my new Xbox was this title. The gameplay is very similar to TW2003 i.e. swinging the club. The learning curve is pretty steep. You start off pretty bad and improve relatively quickly. In fact, it does get a little too easy after a few days. The carrer mode should last 2/3 weeks on beg level. I have yet to try the game in the othetr modes.
The real winner for this game is the compatibility with Xbox Live!! Here you get to play people from all over the world. Quick strokeplay is very fast and great fun. I look forward to trying out other modes and making full use othe facility.
Overall, a great game

4.0 out of 5 stars Must have golf games for XBOX Live 9 Nov 2004
If you use Xbox Live and have a european/PAL Xbox then this is the only way to get your golfing kicks online given that EA have removed the online component from Tiger Woods 2005 on the European release of Tiger Woods.
I own both the Tiger Woods and Links on the Xbox and I have to say that I prefer Links set of challengers and courses to Tiger Woods 'power-drive' style of golf.
Overall a great single and multiplayer game and the ONLY ONE in europe to support XBOX Live. At this price, it's a steal :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Console Golf Game 21 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ordered this game for a mate, so glad I could get a brand new copy.

We play 2 - 4 player Offline matches, passing round the controller.

The main difference between Links2004 and the "Other" franchise gameplay wise' is that in Links2004 you must set your spin etc BEFORE you take your shot.

Career mode and challenges unlocks more courses, balls, shafts etc and you can spend your hard earned cash on skills for your character.

Rock solid golf sim which has withstood the test of time, you can play it on Xbox360. Online play is gone but I think it's still worth 5+++++

4.0 out of 5 stars Links 2004 4 Nov 2004
Links 2004 is an excellent sports sim for golfers and non golfers alike. Many review will slate this game and compare it to Tiger Woods. It is simply a different approach to Tiger Woods and should not be compared. This is a more realistic sim as opposed to Tiger which is more arcade like.
The graphics are superb, and although there are a couple of minor glitches this game will keep you occupied for a long time. This is an excellent online game for those with Live.
If you like sports games go out and buy this!
