Links 2004 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: If there was one glaring absence from the Xbox line-up, it was a good golf game with online play. Well, that is no longer the case with the release of Links 2004. While there are some issues with subtly repetitive gameplay modes, the difficulty level problem, and the occasional cheap computer AI, the overall game is an extremely solid first effort by Microsoft Game Studios.

  • Excerpt: Along with competing in tournaments, there are also skill challenges for each level of competition which help you earn more money and open up better equipment. And, believe me, the more money you have, and the better your equipment, the better you will golf.

Links 2004 – Review

GameCritics.com
26 May 2005
  • Excerpt: While the game of golf has stayed fairly static since its creation, the game's most major change has probably come about because of advances in club technology. There's no doubt that hitting a ball with a modern age driver is a far different experience than whacking at it with a wooden stick. As the golf club has evolved, becoming stiffer, lighter, and made from space-age materials, the way the game is played has also been transformed.

  • Excerpt: There’s nothing better on a lazy, sunny afternoon (in the summer time- sorry, had to refer to The Kinks) than a game of golf. Nice and warm, a slight breeze, glorious sunshine, a glass of Pimms. Perfect. Look at the ball, step back. Glance down the fairway towards the flag waving sarcastically in the distance. Glance again at the ball and walk towards it. Lay the club head down, and glance again at the flag, which seems to have got further away.

  • Excerpt: The Links line of golf games goes a way back, first appearing on the PC in the days when the 386 represented the cutting edge of PC technology. The Links games were well regarded for their ease of play, great graphics, and meticulously recreated golf courses. Now this storied franchise makes the leap to the world of console gaming, giving Xbox gamers the chance to hit the links.

  • Excerpt: For hardcore fans of the sport of golf, there has never been a better franchise available than the PC’s Links . Xbox fans are now getting in on the action, and whilst many things have been jazzed up for this Live-enabled incarnation, gamers who are new to the series will be surprised at just how easy the game is to pick up. Swings are performed with the left analog stick – just like in the Tiger Woods titles – with spin being applied with the right one.

  • Excerpt: As one of the older franchises around, Links has been given new life in Microsoft’s XSN series. Much improved from past releases, Links 2004 offers a complete makeover from graphics down to putting. Although lacking the attention to detail that creates a realistic golf simulation, Links 2004 puts together a golf experience easy to pick up but short on substance.

  • Excerpt: Golf is a game of patience, precision, accuracy, and brains. It's one of those sports that I'll probably never get a chance to participate in. I really lack the patience and I really don't want to invest the necessary funds for the funny clothes, clubs, country club membership, and so on. Fortunately, this is one sport that Microsoft, for many years, has been producing a great product for PC gamers.

  • Excerpt: For year I fell into a very serious, very arrogant, very pompous gaming category. I was a PC Gamer. Consoles? Yeah right! Good consoles died with the Atari 2600. From my earliest “Oregon Trails” days to “Doom” to “TV Sports Football”, I was a PC exclusive gamer. Over the last five years I’ve learned to love and appreciate console gaming for what it brings to the table, but I still maintain a passion for the PC.
