Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In spite of the lack of the competition where PC golfing games are concerned, there’s little reason to feel disappointed at just having Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 to pick from. That’s unless you feel let down, of course, by majestic visuals, sublime gameplay and an all-round quality gaming experience.

Catering for all levels of experience thanks to five well-pitched difficulty ratings, it’s an incredibly easy game to get to grips with. Intuitive from the off, you can pick from numerous golfers and courses, each of which are realised exceptionally well. Graphically, the game is outstanding, and given the vast number of gameplay choices available, it’s going to last you a very long time.

The drawback is that things really haven’t come that far since the 2004 edition. Sure, there are different courses to play on, and welcome they are. Then there’s a brand new Tiger-Proof mode that lets you modify those courses to squeeze every ounce of playability and difficulty from them, although it’s unlikely to be a feature you’ll use that often. And as for the gameplay? It really hasn’t changed that much, with those fresh courses the main attraction.

Yet still, you can’t go far wrong with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005. Whilst it’s disappointing that the game hasn’t come on too much in the last year, there is the small factor that it was, and still is, one of the finest sports games on any format. Few games offer quite as much replay value, and that should be ample compensation for the lack of a decent competitor.--Simon Brew

5.0 out of 5 stars Golf fan or not You'll love this...... 2 Nov 2004
Visually stunning, accurate meticulous replications of some of the world most exclusive courses, attention to detail
of all the top PGA tour professionals, down to there mannerisms, expressions and swing make this game feel your
really part of the action.
If your new to the Tiger Woods range there is a well put together tutorial which explains how to perform the more basic straight shots also how to 'hook' and 'fade' the ball, how to increase power and distance on your shots also control spin on the ball whilst in flight. Advice on how uphill / downhill shots, wind speed and ground conditions can affect club selection.
It has every type of competition play you can imagine including Stableford / matchplay / skins / fourball and many more.
Once you have picked up the basics you play against a range of PGA Tour professionals including many golfing legends.
Unlock many courses as you go along, create your very own player profile and earn money on the tour to improve
your performance and also choose from a range of accessories. Being able to play a mass of courses in different weather
conditions seasonal climatic changes different tee / pin position even taylor make your own course. This ensures even after you think you've completed the game you will struggle to get tired of this one. A must buy.....

There's no doubt that EA Sports know how to present a game and give you plenty of options and gameplay. The number of game modes provided here is excellent, with basic games, PGA Tour, Legend Tour and scenarios. There's also plenty of options for customising your character: the gameface provides so many ways to alter your character's face you can be there for hours perfecting it, and there are thousands of items to buy in the pro-shop. You can even create your character's swing characteristics and select animations for successful shots and missed ones too. So, in terms of options/customisation, TW2005 can't be faulted.
As for the gameplay - it does provide a decent and enjoyable round of golf. It looks good, but does have an arcade look and feel when compared to Microsoft Links 2004 which makes more use of the Xbox's graphics capability.
Mutiplay is always fun amongst friends, but the best option for single play is the PGA Tour Mode which has tournaments throughout the calendar year in a similar style to the real PGA tour. It's good fun 'competing' against other virtual golfers (although you never get to see anyone else play) in tournaments on various courses.
But, like previous TW games - the major flaw with this game is that it quickly becomes too easy. You can win tournaments in PGA Tour mode very quickly, even when your golfer has poor stats. This was a major problem in TW2004, and EA have added Tour Difficulty mode to make things more difficult. While it does make things slightly more difficult (no Caddy Tips for instance) - you'll still find yourself winning most of the PGA Tournaments after a little bit of practice (I achieved -85 in one tournament which is an average of -21.25 per round!!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly addictive 4 Oct 2004
If you're a fan of sports games then this is highly recommended - its highly playable with enough or as few variables to satisfy casual players or hardcore golf fans. The control mechanism is the simple pull back, push forward for ball striking - easy for anyone to get the hang of, whilst there are the obvious club, spin, shot selections to fine tune your game. The main issue is that it can be too easy - I haven't owned any of the previous Xbox Tiger Woods incarnations and was scoring well under par with the first round. However, the graphics and gameplay keep you going and its very easy to play for hours.
There are lots of gameplay options - you can play rounds (practice, foresomes, fourballs, matchplay etc) at a great number of courses, either as Tiger or as one of a multitude of current PGA Tour players. Alternatively you can build your own profile and work your own way up the tour rankings. Within this individual profile you can also play challenges against greats such as Nicklaus, Plamer and Ballesteros.
There is also the now familiar system of building your character from the ground up which has both pro's and con's.
Overall a great game - very playable, good graphically, very compulsive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Its on the Dance Floor! 14 Oct 2004
Nice one EA Sports!
After hrs n hrs of enjoyment on the previous Tiger Woods, 2003/2004 I knew this game would be nice, but the best thing of all is the new functions and effort the developers have done to update this game for 2005.
You tend to find with allot of sequels there pretty much the same as the last bar a couple of things here and there, not with Tiger though, loads of new courses, functions, game modes and characters, allsorts to get your teeth into
Even if you already have 2004, go and get it you won't be disappointed with the new things you can do and even more importantly it does not stray too much away from the basic controls of the last versions!
