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.
