Summary: This was purchased as a gift. I do not own or use a gaming console. The item was received in a timely manner and the recipient was pleased with the gift- about all I can tell you about the item.
Summary: I recently bought a used PS2 and it came with GTA3. While killing hookers, stealing cars, and shooting people for fun and profit is enjoyable in its own right, I quickly grew tired of it (especially in the light of me being truly awful at it). I recently picked up Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003 and love it. For the first 1 to 4 hours of playing it I was blown away by the graphics, loved the sound... but HATED the swing and especially the putting.
Summary: EA Sports proves that it's still the undisputed king of the video game sports world with the latest installment of the Tiger Woods golf franchise. Admittedly, previous entries in the Tiger Woods series were less than perfect. Tiger Woods 2001 was so poor and plagued with problems that I, and many people that I know, didn't even give Tiger 2002 a rental, let alone a purchase.
Summary: There's just something about golf that lends itself to video game translation. I've played and loved numerous translations over the years: NES - Mario Golf; GENESIS - PGA Tour Golf, PGA Tour Golf II, European PGA Tour; SEGA 32X (I know, I know) -Golf Magazine Presents 36 Greatest Holes of Golf Starring Fred Couples; PlayStation - Hot Shots Golf 1 & 2; Dreamcast - Tee Off, Nettou Golf; PS2 - Hot shots Golf 3, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2002, and now Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003.
Summary: I love this game, it's a very nice improvement to 2002. Graphics are great the sound is great and there are more courses to play. The Tiger Challenge is much longer and is much more challenging with tournaments and skins games added to it, rather than straight match play. Finally EA brought back the two player game, this drove me nuts in 2002. You can finally play against your friends, instead of playing that dumb speed golf option.
Summary: I thought the previous Tiger Woods 2002 game for the PS2 was already the best golf game ever made. I was doubting whether to get this new edition, but I am glad I did! It's got more golf courses (all superbly rendered), more graphics, better sound effects than the last game had. One of the fictional golf courses, the Highlands in Scotland, is not only well designed, but while you are playing it you'll hear the wind howling like in a gothic horror story.
