North America Retail Box ArtIn spite of the lack of the competition where PC golfing games are concerned, there’s little reason to feel disappointed at just having Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 to pick from. That’s unless you feel let down, of course, by majestic visuals, sublime gameplay and an all-round quality gaming experience. Catering for all levels of experience thanks to five well-pitched difficulty ratings, it’s an incredibly easy game to get to grips with. Intuitive from the off, you can pick from numerous golfers and courses, each of which are realised exceptionally well. Graphically, the game is outstanding, and given the vast number of gameplay choices available, it’s going to last you a very long time. The drawback is that things really haven’t come that far since the 2004 edition. Sure, there are different courses to play on, and welcome they are. Then there’s a brand new Tiger-Proof mode that lets you modify those courses to squeeze every ounce of playability and difficulty from them, although it’s unlikely to be a feature you’ll use that often. And as for the gameplay? It really hasn’t changed that much, with those fresh courses the main attraction. Yet still, you can’t go far wrong with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005. Whilst it’s disappointing that the game hasn’t come on too much in the last year, there is the small factor that it was, and still is, one of the finest sports games on any format. Few games offer quite as much replay value, and that should be ample compensation for the lack of a decent competitor.--Simon Brew
