Overall: Golf has always been fun for me in real life or in a game. The Links game offered the best gaming, but this Tiger Woods doned game is top of the line as well.
Gameplay: A wide variety of players and courses allow you to do many things in this game. The career mode is well done, taking you through an entire season in the golfing world. The controls are easy to learn but hard to master.. exactly how golf should be.
Graphics: The backgrounds and course objects are well done, but the character models could use some work. They are the focal point of your sight, so they should be the best looking thing on the screen.. in this game they aren't.
Sound: Not much in the sound department here. Clapping, whacking, thudding, cheering.. all the usual golf sounds you would here. Can't give this a higher score because there is nothing special in this games sound department.

Overall: Realistic golf game that makes you feel like you're right there. The best golf game at the time of it's release.
Gameplay: It plays just like a real game of golf. Except you don't get tired. Now that's real fun. Don't forget your six pack.
Graphics: Really good with nice cutaways of ball flight and golfer's expressions. Great maps of real golf courses.
Sound: The narration is priceless at times. Those commentators praise and criticize you but not to the point wherew it's annoying.
Suggestions: Some of the water visuals need work. I don't like when the cutaway goes to the golfer reaction and you can't see your ball touch down on the green - it screws up my spin, dude!

Overall: Rarely do golf games have appeal for a lasting amoubt of time. It seems that the more realisitic you make a golf game the more boring it seems. Tiger Woods Golf has found a way to be realistic and fun at the same time.
Gameplay: Your choices for gameplay are endless. You can take target practice, play on the tour, or even compeat against a very interesting group of characters (mob boss, sumo wrestler, etc.) The days of power meters are done, in tiger woods golf the swing back and forth are control by your left thumbstick, minipulating this movement.
Graphics: solid, but nothing you want to take a screen shot from and to your wall. It doesn't have the usual golf visual glitches, like the fluxating size of ball as it hits the ground. I think the key to the visauls, was that the inviroments were life like.
Sound: Depends on what you listen to. If I remember right this is all really punk or punkish rock, but it gets you pumped up to play,
Suggestions: None, great job!

Overall: I've never touched a golf game before because I thought of golf as being a real boring sport. That is until I ran into Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003.
Gameplay: I liked the controls. Some people have problems with the mashing of the white button to apply power, but that never bothered me. The controls are intuitive and well done. What I don't like is the zoom in on the player's face when he makes an accurate shot. I'd rather want to control the spin of the ball instead of looking into his face.
Graphics: The graphics of some of the players' faces look very static to me. The crowd is far off. But the courses and the surroundings look real nice, that's where they spent the most time on.
Sound: The sound adds to a good atmosphere, and the commentary doesn't distract, either. Sometimes the commentary's remarks are somewhat cruel, but you get used to it.
Suggestions: Improve the players' graphics.

Overall: It's pathetic how addicted I am to this game, especially since it's not as cool to brag about being really good at fake golf. I love the graphics, the variety of courses, the gameplay...but most of all, I love the power drive. There's just something satisfying about driving the ball 350+ yards. It's a great feeling.
Gameplay: It takes a little bit to get used to using the controller stick to swing if you're accustomed to the PC games where you have to do the 3-click mouse thing in the little swing circle gauge thingy. But once you do, you'll never want to go back. My suggestion is to learn the power swing. That move is fun as hell to bust out, especially if you can build up your driver strength and crank a 375 yard drive on a 600 yard hole. It's safe to say that the main reason I play is to use the power drive.

My only complaints are about the putting and the fact that you can't really shape shots (no hooking or fading around a dogleg). Or maybe you can...I didn't read the instruction book. If so, then nevermind. I guess it's just not as obvious as I would've liked. Every so often, the caddie doesn't tell you where to aim, so then you have to guess based on the elevation of various points of the green, blah, blah. If you feel like figuring that out, be my guest. If the greens had grids, it might be a different story, but I still say you're screwed if the caddie decides to rest a hole. The bastard.
Graphics: The scenery is awesome, so that's all I'll say about that. The players are about as good any of the newer games out there (the faces are OK, but could use a lot of improvement), and they did a good job copying the swings of current PGA tour members. Jim Furyk is the best one, except for Tiger's swing. That guy has the perfect swing (bastard), and they copied it to near perfection.
Sound: There's a list of 10 or so songs you can choose from (no customized playlist, as far as I can tell), and they just play those over and over again. The golf sounds (ball falling in the cup, clubhead striking the ball, etc.) are great, but hearing the same songs all the time was getting on my nerves. The best way to play this game is to mute it, pop in a CD, and crank some drives.
Suggestions: Of course, XBox Live support. If I have to play, for example, in a skins game against 3 other computer players, it's annoying having to wait for them to hit the ball. And then I have to wait longer if they get that !&%$@#* heartbeat. A way to just skip past them hitting so I can hit again would be great. Or a way to turn off the cutaway of the player's face on good shots...it screws me up because I don't know what direction to spin the ball in until the last second. I'd also like to switch to and from a putter whenever I feel like it. I guess that's more suggestions than I thought. Maybe I should become a developer so I could make my own games and quit bitching about the ones made by other people. Nah.

Overall: I played this at a friends house the first time and immediately ran out and bought it. This is by far the best golf game available for the Xbox at this time.
Gameplay: The basic gameplay is very easy to learn and with a few hours more of play the more advanced controls can be figured out. You can play about any kind of golf that you want (skins, match, or stroke play), go through some scenarios (3 down comeback, par 3,4, & 5 challenges, etc.), go through the Tiger Challenge (a matchplay mode), or play in a tournament. One of the things that can keep the game interesting is the ability to upload your "resume" to the Tiger website. You can then see how you stack up against other Tiger players around the world. Another great feature is online tournaments. You get a code from the Tiger website, put it into your game and then you play a specific course with a specific golfer. Then you get a code to upload your score to website and you can see how you fare.

Replay value is killed some by the fact that once you max out the stats on your golfer you have nothing to do with your money. You can't buy new equipment or anything. I was also disappointed with the lack of customization of your golfer since you must pick the model of one of the existing golfers.
Graphics: The visuals on this game are great. The work on the course is very well done as well as the golfers themselves. Everything looks as it should (right down to the swoosh on Tiger's ball and clubs).
Sound: The sounds in the game are just amazing. The sound of the ball hitting the club is unmistakable to an experienced golfer, along with all of the other sounds of the game. Also, the commentary supplied by David Farraday is great. He supplies slight touch of humor to coinside with Bill Macatee's shot-by-shot.
Suggestions: Ability to do more customization of your golfer would be ideal. Also, the ability to be able to do something with all that cash you have sitting around once you max your stats. Oh, and add Xbox Live support, of course.

Overall: Real addicting game found myself playing for 6 hours strait and not realizing it. Also I am still learning things about the game after playing for hours. The playability is not too hard to pick up but can frustrate you as you progress.
Gameplay: The storyline is not too bad, but the characters always give the same expressions and a taunting conversation would make me more interested in the challege mode
Graphics: The graphics are the reason I bought the game they are very versitle and neat. Although finding the fairway of the British tour is hard to aim at for me anyway. But not too bad.
Sound: The sound don't thrill me although you can choose from a standard soundtrack I like to play my own music. The heartbeat is cool because you know you made a good shot and intrests you more in the game.
Suggestions: When making sporting games do like the racing designers do and make the soundtrack user friendly...

Overall: What a great game! I am thoroughly enthralled by this golfing extravaganza that EA has birthed unto the world. Even though there are some things that I was not too enthusiastic about (such as having a lot of fantasy characters instead of using only real PGA players), I still give this game a full 5! Keep up the great work EA!
Gameplay: Gameplay is very comprehensive and easy to get used to. Out of all the golf games I have played to date, this one makes the most sense. The only complaint I have here is that the button-mashing for extra power and spin are wreaking havoc on my carpel tunnel syndrome (no, really...) Also, that caddy and his tips can go hug a moose. Every time I listened to him, I came up short and off centre. He's good for general directions, but other than that he's useless.
Graphics: What a good looking game. Of course Tiger is the most handsome and best rendered of all the players (nudge nudge...) but the rest of them look really cool too. Their eyes on the close-ups are kind of freaky (their eyes all look like they've been sucking on a bottle of whiskey before hitting the links... all red-rimmed and squinty). Visually I give it a high mark because it just looks so cool overall.
Sound: The ambient sounds and comments are great. Even though what the commentators are saying is quite misguiding at times, they still add a lot. The shot sounds are dead-on and the heart-thumping sound makes my heart pound. The sound adds another dimension to a well designed game.
Suggestions: Add more PGA players. It would help a lot playing against actual names you recognize as opposed to 'the Don' or 'Tsunami', etc... Other than that. keep up the good work. Oh, one more thing, give players the option to switch to a putter when a little further out on the fringe. That's all... Thanks.

Overall: As a non-golfer really not crazy about golf or golf games, there are many reasons to like and play this game. There are some major issues that need work, but overall this is a fun title we keep playing over and over. The graphics and sound are consistent with what we expect from Xbox titles. The info display while golfing is very complete. There are many varied ways to play and earn money from target shooting to skins games that keep us playing.
Gameplay: Using the stick as the golfer swing is an obvious choice, and including draw, fade, hook and slice on the stick's motion make for a nice single control that requires a bit of skill to learn if you're going to try more sophisticated swings than just mashing the stick forward as fast as you can.

I also think the spin effect mashing of the black button and pointing the swing stick is a good choice.

Everyone I know that plays the game hates the buttonmash speed drill required to apply power to a shot. Typically 10 to 15 seconds are wasted on each shot as the player retries and retries their white buttonmashing to get the desired power level. This makes absolutely no sense whatsoever on a controller that has the perfect proportional device, a trigger. How hard would it have been to make the triggers affect power once the swing stick is pulled back?

This is the major failure of this game and most often the reason it goes back in the rack for some thumb relief.

The variety of play modes is great, especially match play and skins. The huge omission has been mentioned, Live support. Mentioning an EA web site as an online feature is a complete insult to the XBox Live userbase. There is and always will be one and only one way to do live content on Xbox. There is no room for dozens of private sites with varying abilities and degrees of service in Xbox, and vendors like EA need to snap out of it. This isn't the Sony world, we want a centralized gaming setup.

I also agree with the comments about the player face shots. If you're going to allow a player to apply spin after a shot is hit, you need to let the player see where the ball is headed.

4.5 for the great play, minus 2 points for the power control on the white button.
Graphics: Consistent with most titles on the Xbox, the graphics are nice. The backgrounds respond to wind and weather. The characters could show more weather effect. I was in a 20mph sustained wind at St. Andrews with no ripple effect on the character's loose shirt.
The crowd graphics are weak, but they aren't that important. The squirrels look like they were drawn for new Zelda.

Sound: Sound effects for swings, highly-powered swings and ball contact with objects are great. Wind needs a little work on some courses. The announcers have a life of about 10 hours of match play.

I've got 50 hours of tracks on my Xbox, and not only is this another title with no user playlisting, it's another playlist with, tops, one track with any value. Dammitall, the music matters. If you're going to put tracks in a game, ya gotta let me do more than just shut them all off.
Suggestions: Ditch the buttonmash for power, add online.

Overall: Just an absolutely AWESOME game. I have had it since Christmas and have played it on a daily basis. EA has been pissing me off with some of the crap they have put out for the xbox but this is a big exception. You don't have to be a golf fanatic to appreciate this game but it definatley helps. No your driver will not turn into a shotgun so u can blow Tiger's head off. It is a well designed game with a minimal amount of flaws which can be easily overlooked. If you are a retard (no offense)like GELONGTERMCARE then you just won't get it.
Gameplay: Amazing, the controls are really easy and at first unless you are an unco-ordinated tool you'll be hitting some nice shots. What GELONGTERMCARE failed to understand when he was playing with his grandmother is that there are different game modes and skill levels. Such as an EA mode where they select your club and line up your shots and showu the line to the hole, this is good for grandmothers and beginners and yes you will get a few holes in one. But try the black tees and hard pin placement and i gaurantee you'll have a good challenge and a heck of alot of fun.
Leave grandma at home and play with 3 of your friends, it is a !&%$@#* in blast and i mean it. play stoke or match play it really is fun.
Graphics: Beautiful, they really spent alot of time perfecting the faces and bodies of the character. Tiger looks amazing its pretty scary. whats up with brad faxon? he looks like he was burnt severly in a fire. The crowds look really cheesy which is a pisser as well as the fact only 6 people show up at the british open. They made a neat zoom in of the golfers face when he hits a nice shot but it easily becomes annoying when you progress in the game and need to use your spin capabilities since you cant see where the ball is going.
Sound: sound is pretty good, the soundtrack is amazing. the anouncers are alright but grow tiresome after a while. birds and all tha crap are good.
Suggestions: lose the zoom in on every good shot or enable it to be turned off. why cant we use our putters from some parts of the fringe? duhhh. keep it coming and brush up some stuff.

Overall: This game has a lot of cool and interesting features to keep you hooked. Previous Tiger Woods games have been fairly good, and this one is much better.
Gameplay: The gameplay is very good. The only thing which bugs me is the "cut-away" shots of the players faces while the ball is in the air. It's hard to figure out where to spin the ball when you can't see it.
Graphics: Graphics and visuals are great. The sparse crowds look a bit funny, but some of the courses look amazing, especially the Highlands course.
Sound: Sound is very good also. There is no lag time with the announcers. They have many different calls they use, but still would have liked even more.
Suggestions: Yes, a few. Option to turn off cut-away shots of golfer's faces while ball is in the air. Varied crowd sizes in relation to importance of tournament. More variety in announcers comments.

Overall: I really like this game. It is a lot of fun for a pick up and play game. One of the few that my wife will play with me. The animations are fun and the force feedback is as good as any game.
Gameplay: The gameplay is very simple, once you learn to swing, you just need to learn to place your shot and putt. Kind of like real golf. Gameplay couldn't be simpler, I dont like mashing buttons to get power or spin, but I haven't thought of a better way.
Graphics: The graphics are more than adequate, but they are not amazing. It seems to me that they cold have done a much better job with this. Some game makers seem to go for lowest common denominator and EA is one of them.
Sound: While the sound in the game is good, and I really liked the commentary, I could not find a custom soundtrack option. This is getting to be unexcusable in this type of game. I don't need this option in Halo, but in golf, come on, it would make the game so much better. I ahve to deduct a whole point this.
Suggestions: Soundtrack support. If we have to wait for the xbox version to come out, please justify the wait by using the hardware. If you don't someone else will and we will buy those games instead.

Overall: This game is amazing . It is easily the best sports game on the xbox . The accuracy and detail are excellent.This game could essentially last forever as it has infinite replay value.
Gameplay: You buy this game to play golf , and thats exactly what you do . So realistic it's almost unbelievable.
Graphics: Perfect graphics . The courses look great and the golfers themselves look EXACTLY like their real life counterparts.
Sound: Great music from Saliva and various other bands . The sound when the club hits the ball is sweet and the crowd sound great.

Overall: I've been waiting for this and Outlaw Golf for quite a long time now, and I was extremely dissapointed with Outlaw Golf so I was absoulutely dying to play this game and I'm not at all dissapointed.
Gameplay: Great gameplay which kicks the crap out of Outlaw Golf, great gameplay and control, hugely realistic, absolutely brilliant.
Graphics: Looke great, the courses look great but some times the faces look a bit weird, best looking golf game for a long time.
Sound: Great songs (especially because I'm a huge Silverchair and Saliva fan) awesome sound effects and great commentators.

Overall: this game has me addicted. i'm a real golf freak and it's just what the doctor ordered for me since it's WINTER and some of us can't golf for real right now.
Gameplay: the game play is smooth and neat. although the game does get rather easy once you build up your ratings high enough.
Graphics: the courses themselves look great. the players look great. the background in most cases look ok. other times it looks like turok. i'm satisfied since it is a port, but would hope they improve next time.
Sound: sound is pretty good. not much need for sound in a golf game (since it's supposed to be quiet). but the play by play guys are cool, especially the scottish guy. great commentary ("It's hunting down the pin, Billy!")
Suggestions: xbox live would be great and would make the appeal last until the next version comes out. otherwise i'll probably grow tired of it and play it every once in awhile between splinter cell breaks.

Overall: This is one of the best golf games I have seen. It is easy to control and has alot to it. Challanging but not so much that you will not enjoy it.

Gameplay: So far the controls themselves are easy to use. The S-controler is the best controller to use here with the differnt placement of the black button. The only gripe I have with the game is the putting just seems off to me.
Graphics: Very nice looking game all around, the player on the game definitly look better than any other. But as to the backgrounds it is a hard one to judge as most golf games kinda look the same in this area.
Sound: The sounds are good, the addition that EA has started putting actually musicians and thier songs in is kinda cool. But the sounds on the links sound equally as well.

Suggestions: Not much it is a very solid title for Xbox. I am not a overly huge fan of EA sports but this title was done very well.

Overall: Looks good. Very nice graphics and plenty of Golf courses. Players to UNLOCK and many options. Nicely done
Gameplay: I hate only one thing about this game and that is the reason i won't buy it or play it anymore: you have to "button mash" the black button to gain more power. I play GOLF to relax and "button mashing" shouldn't be in a GOLF game.
Graphics: Very nicely done. Not incredible but nice. Have i told you that i hate "button mashing" in a GOLF game :P

Overall: Only the second golf game to grace the XBox, Tiger Woods 2003 will be a welcome addition for some who've used Outlaw Golf for their golf fun since the introduction of XBox. And being slightly more serious along with Tiger's name on the front, this should sell alot of copies.
However, due to the fact that XBox-hating EA Sports created the game, you'll soon see the limitations this game has.
Gameplay: The gameplay, with the analog swing, is similar to Outlaw Golf's method which was very good. I didn't much care for the ability to change the spin in mid-air, but the extra power button was decent for getting that extra little power. The ball physics, however, are ridiculous. In one weekend of playing this game, I got over a dozen hole in ones in regular rounds(not the target game, which is even easier), and that is very unrealistic.
After the first fews hours, I told myself I was going to buy it, and get rid of Outlaw Golf. Now that I've put in more time to see the game, I will not be doing that however. If Outlaw Golf 2 adds more courses and golfers, it'll dominate EA's offering. Even if it is more arcadish.
Graphics: This is where the game really stumbled. Since this game is a cross platform game, it REALLY shows in the graphical department. The environment is quite good, but the players and spectators(ugggh!) are horrendously under detailed(besides the close ups of the face), and extremely aliased. This game really looks like what it actually is, a PS2 game. For shame EA, why must you continue to punish us XBox owners with your substandard graphics.
Sound: The sound, not bad. Good ambiance and background noise. Fortunately, the music is crazy techno as it was before, however the music still doesn't really suit golf. It sounds like they took the music out of their football and hockey games.
Suggestions: Fortunately for you, Outlaw Golf is under-coursed, or you'd still not be competing a full year after it came out. A suggestion, if you're going to make a game for the best console on the planet, at least give it better graphics than the other ones. If I wanted PS2 graphics, I would've bought one.

Overall: Well !&%$@#* , i don't care much for golf games, but this game was sort of fun. Despite the fact that i hate Electronic Arts for screwing the XBox left and right, this game is fun for those who even remotly like golf. A worthy rent of any fan, but for i'm not into golf, i prefer to play games that i cannot do in real life, such as kill aliens (halo) or race crazy fast in expensive cars (Sega GT 2002). Any one can play a game of golf, sure it might not be with Tiger Woods, but hell its just golf.
Gameplay: The game play is pretty good, well thought out and executes well. It's fun considering the game that it engulphs.
Graphics: UGH, VERY PS2-ish! Considering the GFX are from the PS2 they do a good job of replicating a golf coure. Nothing more. (oh and Woods looks good, but who really cares)
Sound: I didn't care much for the music in the game, and the sound is nothing special at all, its pretty SUB-PAR (haha).
Suggestions: Gamers-> Go golfing for real, don't buy this game, buy games you CANNOT DO IN REAL LIFE (like DeathRow)!

Overall: This game is down right awesome. Even if you are not a golf fan I would recommend this game. You get addicted to it and keep playing it until your eyes hurt. Everything from the graphics to the game play rocks.
Gameplay: The game play is very simple but extremely fun. Once you get good at it there is more depth in the gameplay than you first think. Over all again I will give it an awesome rating. There are alot of different game modes to play and tons of unlockables. Very fun.
Graphics: Holy crap, this is one of the best parts of the game. The graphics are stunning on this game. The courses almost looks real and the characters movements look very realistic. The only quarrel I had was that some of the player models did not look exactly like the real life people but they still looked really good. But on the other hand some of the other ones looked perfect down to the tee, especially Tiger.
Sound: The sound is very good on this game. They have tons of good songs on the soundtrack that play when you are in the menu.
Suggestions: The only suggestion I would have for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003 is to make it Xbox Live compatible. I know you can participate in online tournaments, but it would be a hell of alot funner LIVE. Other than that, this is by far the best golf game I have ever played. Congrats!

Overall: A GREAT golf game! This is the first golf game since super nintendo days that I truly enjoy. Overall presentation is excellent. A ton of unlockables, a wide range of different types of game play, some really nice graphics, and a GREAT golf engine all mixed in with just the right touch of arcade action to keep it from getting droll. Simply put, the best golf game I've ever played.
Gameplay: There are more options than you can shake a stick at in this game that range from tournamants to challenging individual golfers, to skins, to the Tiger Challenge, to Speed Golf, and more. All that plus a bunch of beautiful courses (13 total, I think...most real, a few fantasy).

The gameplay is excellent. Controls are easy to use, hard to master. Truly a great golf engine. Balls play like you think they would.
Graphics: Visually, the game, at times is stunning.The courses are beautiful, and most the golfers have great detail and look fantastic. There are some instances where you look at the graphics and get the feel they were "dumbed down" to support ps2, but, still, overall, the graphics are sweet.
Sound: Sound is excellent. Great commentary, really nice background noise. Sound gives a really nice extra realism effect to the game.
Suggestions: two suggestions: as good as the graphics look, I'm certain they could have been better. Next time, take full advantage of the xbox!!! Also for next time....how friggin' awesome would this game be if it were LIVE ENABLED????? Wow.

Overall: Incredible depth, amazing visuals, easy to get into...Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003 is not just by far the greatest golf game on the XBOX...it's the greatest golf game ever. Even if you don't like golf, I'd say 90% of you would still enjoy this great title.
Gameplay: The controls are easy to get used too, and if you think the game is too easy in the beginning (I shot a 21-under 51 on one of the first tournaments), trust me, it gets harder. All kinds of different gameplay modes, and the multiplayer is great as well. I've had friends over the past 3 nights playing this...and we're still not tired of it.
Graphics: It's the XBOX...come on. EA hasn't used all of the XBOX's capabilities in it's games, they look nice, but I feel they can do better in some areas. Like in the opening movie, it looks horrible, and by horrible, I mean it looks like PS2. They will get better though I'm sure.
Sound: Sound is great...it sounds like golf. The swing, the heartbeats, the ambiance. It's nothing spectacular, but there's not a thing wrong with it either.
Suggestions: XBOX LIVE capabilities.

Overall: Tiger 2003 is by far the most entertaining golf game I have ever been privaledged to play. I have played almost every golf game to date, and EA has really done something great with this title. If you have any interest in the game of golf, I'd suggest you to go out and purchase your copy today. You don't know what your missing!
Gameplay: The depth of the gameplay is probably the biggest I've ever seen in a golf game. There are so many modes, courses, and players to use that you will never get tired of this game. The controls are excellent, and very easy to get used to. The multi-player is also very addicting. With the addition of the online tournaments (unfortunately not through Xbox Live), the depth is truely unbelievable. Overall, a very deep and entertaining golf game!
Graphics: The visual appeal of Tiger 2003 is also very well presented as the courses, players, and surroundings are very detailed. The animations are also very well captured. The cool camera angles, and swing effects also add another dimension to this game. Overall, a very satisfying look!
Sound: The sound is also very well-rounded. The music blends very well into the whole Tiger Woods atmosphere. The sound effects on the course are probably some of the best around. It's as if you are actually experiencing the events up close! Very well done!
Suggestions: Keep up the good work! Try to add an even greater variety of courses for the next edition. Add Xbox Live compatibility to ensure the best experience possible!

Overall: I loved the game tiger 2002 on P2 and was so happy when it came on the box..2003 that is. I though maybe Outlaw would have been it but it just wasnt as fun as this.
Gameplay: The best part of this game is its multi player. Unlike Outlaw you have the availbility to upgrade your profile while playingm multi. There is also alot more courses and things to unlock. This is a great game
Graphics: The graphics are good and at first I thought P2ish, while they are a little bit, just not as much as I though. I saw both systems with this game and xbox does have the better visual, even though EA never takes advantage of what they could with xbox.
Sound: Sound .... well its golf so ther than a little commentary and some birds there isnt much. I think they could havetaken a little more advantage of some 5.1. That was a feature on outlaw. Another feature that could have been added is custom soundtracks. While golf isnt a game for music, it still would have been nice for the spectatures ( those watching you play)
Suggestions: Use a little more of the Xbox features, custom tracks, 5.1, graphics. I like the addition of being able to take wholes and create your own course but to build one from scratch would be awsome. Maybe a second disk for that... I would be willing to pay extra... yes extra for that... meaning more oney for you $$$$$$$$$$

Overall: I think overall, this game is very well done. It is deeper than it first appears or appears on the surface. It is a nice change from the frantic button pushing of most games. I think the PS2 fanboy who intentionally tried to bring down the score wishes his inferior equipment could translate a golf game this well.
Gameplay: The game somehow gets away with mixing up some sim and arcade. It really plays like a sim,but some of the animations are arcadish. So far,I like the gameplay,hoping to get better soon.
Graphics: No gripes with the visuals. It is finally nice to see a great looking golf game on a big screen. So many years we were confined to our p.c. monitors. The player models look good and the scenery has a lot of little details,fortunately, this is a golf game and you have time to look around. If you keep looking you will see alot of surprises.
Sound: It has all of the ambient sounds that a golf game should offer. The commentary doesn't really add much or detract much.
Suggestions: Make up with Microsoft and don't be so stubborn you hurt yourselves regarding XboxLive. This would be great against other Live players.

Overall: Finally a real golf game. Not that Outlaw was not golf, its just not real sim golf. Tiger 2003 it fun and has lots of options. The online feature is a nice touch, though to play your friends would have been better. I am already ranked and my stats are on the WEB for all to compare.
Gameplay: The game is somewhat easy to pick up. The tutorial helps a lot. I would say that in a few more hours of playing I will grasp all the controls.
Graphics: Tiger 2003 looks great. The trees blowing in the wind, and the colors of the courses give the game a great look.
Sound: The sound effects are great and the vocals are all clear and easy to hear. The music that I have heard so far all sounds pretty good.
Suggestions: Just keep adding cool stuff and work on the online features.
