Summary: This is a great golf game. I wasn't especting it to be as good as it is due to the price, but it is very good and quite detailed. Easy to learn and then there are degrees of dificulty as you move up. Excellent game!
Summary: This is a great game. It is almost immediately addictive. I love the match play and the tournament options. It is much better than the Tiger Woods golf game. If you want a game that will grab you from the outset grab this one!!
Summary: I was a little unsure how I'd like golf simulation on the DS, but this game is great. It quickly became the default game I would play when I wanted to relax with my DS. I enjoyed all the features and courses that you can unlock, this added dimension to the game. I would highly recommend this game for anyone who enjoys (or wants to enjoy) golf.
Summary: True Swing Golf was the first game I bought with my DS and I still enjoy playing it often. You can even play with friends who do not have the game via download play. I have done so a few times and it worked flawlessly. Probably the most unique feature about the game is how you swing the club with the pen stylus on the touch screen. It makes the game very wii-esque and is a good contribution to the game play rather than being just a touch screen gimmick.
Summary: This was the first DS game that I purchased and I still play it all of the time. The stylus swing is very Wii-esque and can be challenging. I have played with others via download play who do not own the game. You can play them on three different 9-hole courses if they do not own the game or on any course if they do. If you like golf video games, this is a must-have.
Summary: Like you have been reading, this game is not good in the presentation dept. The touch swing controls are excellent however. This imo, trumps the analog swing style employed in console games in the last 8 years. This may be the best controlling golf game I have played, and you'll find many courses and great stat tracking to keep you playing much longer then most handheld games.
Summary: I am someone who is quite difficult when reviewing games so I have to admit to some surprise when seeing some of the reviews here. I find this game to be possibly the best golf game I have playeed and I have played just about all of them. I can only guess that some have not given it enough time because the more you play, the more you realize the amazing amount of control you have on your shots. The graphics may not be great, but they are more than good enough.
Summary: Of the two golf games I own for my DS, this is the easiest to play. The character customization is limited, but I like the fact that the weather is programmed into the game, and the course that mixes in parts of courses from all around the world is a nice touch.
