Summary: Look. I've been a fan of the TW golf games for a while now. After I got a DS (to help me through my overnight doorman shifts), I figured that a Tiger Woods game, even one stripped of many of the console versions' features, would still be a pretty good time. Right? Well, kinda, followed by a "No." The mechanics are a little wonky, but learnable.
Summary: It's..... it's not awesome but its not bad either, its a couple of steps above ok. I haven't found an awesome golf game on the DS and this is kind of what you have to settle for. I haven't found any problems with it and the controls work pretty good. My big complaint would be with the putting, you will be missing a lot of them because it just isn't that accurate, but it's not so bad that you can't play the game. Again, just OK.
Become a PGA Professional, even if it's just a Game

Summary: This is the best golf game for the Nintendo DS platform. You can play in multiplayer or single player mode. You can practice your skills or take the Tiger Woods challenge. Mini games are challenging but keep a player's interest. With regards to game play, you can select a single match or start in career mode competing with the PGA's best golfers. There are noticeable subtlies when using different golfers, especially your own with attributes of 1/25 for everything.
Summary: I was impressed at the options when it comes to customizing your character, but I wish the face was easier to see. It's fun to play golf with the pros programmed into the game, it challanges you to improve while showing you how good the pros REALLY are.
Papa's perfect antidote to a waiting room magazine

Summary: I picked this up for myself to use on my sons' Nintendo DS. I have no interest in playing most of the games they play but they occasionally talk me into a couple rounds of Mario Kart (my 4-year old leaves me in the dust!) With the prospect of several doctor visits and with each a prolonged stay in the waiting room, I bought this game to take along. I've never owned another golf game, so I can't speak to whether the '08 version is better than its predecessors.
Summary: Well, I'm new to DS, but I can spot a good game when I see one. TW 08 gives many variations in game play. You can play a match, do challenges, practice the challenges, open WiFi to play online or local net, download/pass play, and last but not least... The Tour. My technique was to gain all the skill points by doing the challenges, then try the Tour. I had to supplement my challenges with free matches to make enough money to have enough skill.
