Excerpt: Now that nearly every other sport has had it's shot on the PSP, it's golf's turn. Tiger Wood's PGA Tour brings EA's popular golf series to the handheld in what is essentially a smaller version of the 2004 version of the game. Everything you'd expect from the series, from graphics to gameplay, managed to find their way into the game, though it does contend with some AI and long time issues that can blemish the experience.
Excerpt: Tiger Woods PGA Tour is one of those games that have a fairly large appeal to even the biggest golf hater. Take my wife (rim shot please) for example. She completely despises golf, but for some reason Tiger Woods and Mario Golf are two of her favorite games. One could argue that Mario is cutesy and that would appeal to a different group of people as well as golf fans, but that doesn't really make any exceptions for Tiger.
Excerpt: If you're looking for a realistic golf experience with licensed golfers and courses on the PSP, Tiger is likely to be the only choice for the near future. Thankfully, the game has the power of EA behind it, so the list of golfers and courses is impressive. Sherwood Country Club, Pebble Beach, Harbor Town, St. Andrews, and Paradise Cove are a few of the 12 courses that the game has to offer.
Conclusion: If EA can lick the loading issue, there's nothing holding this game back from being superb. But the first version of Tiger Woods on PSP frustrates too much to recommend over the likes of Everybody's Golf. I shudder to think of the comparative time it takes to play 18 holes between the two. When you're actually swinging the club, it's arguably the best golf game. If you're a fiend for licensed content, it also comes out on top. But the downtime is too much of a factor.
Pros: This is the console game on handheld. Staggering level of content.
Cons: The loading times make the game almost unplayable
