Tiger Woods PGA Tour is the first appearance of the franchise on the PSP. In Tiger, players create their own golfer and develop their skills in order to move up through the ranks and challenge both current and legendary tour players. The game features multiplayer as well, including Playoff Round in Party Play mode and the Bingo Bango Bongo game type in Head-to-Head mode, both of which are unique to the PSP.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004 for the PS2 proved to be extremely successful, especially following the success of the man himself in the golfing world. Fortunately, EA have kept many of the same aspects in Tiger Woods PGA Tour for the PSP, and in same cases have actually improved on them. Gameplay is very similar, with the intense PGA Tour mode (now called Legend Mode) being scaled down slightly for the portable platform. The controls are as solid as ever, and while they arguably require more skill than, say, Everybody’s Golf, they also allow more precise control. Graphically the game is brilliant and match the PS2 version pixel for pixel - there are a couple cases of slowdown here and there, but overall the game is looks great.
The custom player section allows you to create a virtual you to compete in the tournaments and the wealth of options is just staggering - practically any face and body shape can be turned digital. We did a couple of rounds with an over-weight pensioner with a white mo-hawk who resembled Mr. T. Tiger Woods PGA Tour is a must for golf fans who want a “tour” experience on the go. The depth of the Legend Mode, combined with the more time-friendly Legend Challenges and multiplayer modes make this a game not to miss.
