Excellent but not perfect

Summary: This game is truely an enjoyable experience. I had just as much fun playing this as I did 10 years ago playing PGA Tour II for genesis. The graffics are un-real, and the courses are equally as spectacular, especially those which are imaginary. The game play is quite realistic. For example, the way the shot is affected by different lies is extremely relatable to real life golf.
Summary: When it comes to sports games, there are two camps--those who want a pure simulation game that is completely realistic, and those who want a pick-up-and-play arcade game with crazy moves and unrealistic physics. EA Sports usually makes games that appeal to the former group, but I think Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2002 appeals to both sides. This game can be as simple or as deep as you want it to be. There are plenty of options.
Summary: Excellent graphics on Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2002... best visuals I've yet to see on a golf game on any system. Ocean surf pounding the rocks off Pebble Beach, beautiful desert buttes on Copper Canyon, birds chirping and flying by, trees sway one at a time as if a breeze is really touching them one by one, cameras following the speeding golf ball on its flight path over stunning hills and caverns. No swing meter - innovative and thanks to EA Sports for taking that step.
Summary: I guess all I have to say about this game is that after demoing it in the store, I traded GTA3, and three other non-descipt games to get this game and I am thoroughly enraptured with my purchase. The reality and challenging nature of it really captured my attention and will keep it until a golf game comes onboard that I can play against other people online at once.
Summary: The graphics are better than average. There is some good competition and the courses look beautiful. TWPGAT 2002 has mostly realistic players but some fictional. The controlls take a little while to get used to but you will get the hang of it. In my opinion it is better than the Hot Shots Golf series. There is a new mode called speed golf which is very fun.
Summary: Rented last night, very addictive for a few reasons: a new swing method to learn, wins earn you points to improve areas of your golfer, wins allow you to unlock models of how your golfer looks. Not crazy about the putting because you have little control over it, and the ability to force a bad shot into a good one with all the spinning is unrealistic. Graphics are great, but characters are a little cartoony.
Best PS2 game but still needs a little fine tuning.

Summary: This is the best PS2 game i have played. It is far cry better than the previous year's version. The player profile aspects are fabulous. Earning money in the various game modes is significant as the money is used to buy attributes which will help your golfer's improve. The user stats are very neatly kept and very informative. The number of courses are great. The graphics are very nice.
Summary: I have never stepped foot on a golf course. I couldn't tell you all the rules and I don't watch it on TV. Why did I rent this game? I read some positive reviews and I figured this game could be played over and over without getting boring. It's all true. The game is very addicting. I am essentially learning this game but I love the fact that I didn't beat the game in one day. That's always the best part of any game.
Summary: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2002 for PlayStation 2 is the best golf game on the market. This game makes you feel that you are really on the course facing some of the best golfers on the tour. There are real tour courses such as Peble Beach, TPC Sawgrass and many more. The "Tiger Challange" mode is great. As you get deeper into this mode, you begin to unlock players such as Stuart Appleby, Brad Faxon, Vijay Singh and many more. There is another mode called "Speed Golf.
Summary: There's alot of cool features in this game, and most of the other reviews covered them already. Definitely the most satisfying golf sim since the Sega Genesis days. Having said that, I'm really honked off that (a)the tournaments are 2 rounds instead of 4...despite the fact the scoreboard is set up for 4 rounds, and (b)there's no save option! If you start a game, you gotta finish it in one sitting. That blows.
