Catering for all levels of experience thanks to five well-pitched difficulty ratings, its 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, its going to last you a very long time.
The drawback is that things really havent come that far since the 2004 edition. Sure, there are different courses to play on, and welcome they are. Then theres a brand new Tiger-Proof mode that lets you modify those courses to squeeze every ounce of playability and difficulty from them, although its unlikely to be a feature youll use that often. And as for the gameplay? It really hasnt changed that much, with those fresh courses the main attraction.
Yet still, you cant go far wrong with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005. Whilst its disappointing that the game hasnt 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
