  • Excerpt: The DS has two golf games: EA's Tiger Woods PGA Tour that was released near the launch of the system, and True Swing Golf, published by Nintendo about a year later. Although Tiger Woods PGA Tour showed potential for golf games on the DS, True Swing Golf worked everything from the ground up rather than follow Tiger's system. Was the result a total bomb, or a game to be enjoyed by golf fans everywhere? Read on to find out.

  • Excerpt: Developer – T&E Software Publisher - Nintendo Features Wireless DS Single-Card Download Play Wireless DS Multi-Card Play Touch Screen Compatible Some of my most memorable video golf gaming moments have been with a few of Nintendo’s handheld consoles. Mario Golf is what sticks out most in my mind, from the GBC version to the GBA version. I have been eagerly awaiting a DS version of this classic game but there has been no talk of it being in development.

  • Conclusion: However, while the gameplay is excellent, the graphics are butt-ugly. This is where Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 wins-out unfortunately. While certainly clean for the most part, there are times where you can see muddy textures and blocky looking trees and local environments. On the plus side though, it does run on a solid framerate and it certainly looks better than a lot of other 3D titles hitting the DS market.

True Swing Golf Review

GameSpot
20 January 2006
  • Summary: Even if the touch-screen controls hadn't stripped away much of the subtlety of the sport, True Swing Golf would still be a lean and flavorless game of golf.
  • Pros: Healthy number of courses, Good use of game-sharing
  • Cons: Bland presentation, Meager feature set, Touch-screen controls devoid of subtlety

  • Excerpt: Честно признаюсь, я с гольфом «на вы». Хотя принцип «докати шарик до лунки за минимальное число ударов» мне и понятен, все тонкости, вроде особым образом подстриженной травы или песочных проплешин, а также десяток вариантов клюшек под разные условия меня пугают. Никогда не получалось понять, в каком порядке соотносятся все эти премудрости. Да и учиться было не на чем – у нас гольф-полей чуть не три штуки на всю Россию-матушку.
