Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004
The N-Gage has certainly
taken mobile gaming to the next evolutionary stage and what better way to
kill some time than with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004. This current golfing
game for the N-Gage game deck takes gamers on the professional golfing
circuit and offers them four modes of play that includes practice, career
(my favourite), versus and of course the extremely popular N-Gage arena.
Thankfully this current incarnation of Tiger Woods has been backed by
Electronic Arts and for those that have played the title before, you will
find the N-Gage version as compelling as its distance console cousins.
The main draw card of
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004 is the career mode that allows gamers to take on
the role of professional golfer and play a variety of tournaments around the
world. The versus mode of Tiger Woods is also quite fun and although it does
allow you to hook up against another N-Gage via the bluetooth, you can also
play the traditional way and play against 3 other players by passing around
the N-Gage game deck.
The control system of
Tiger Woods 2004 is quite easy to master and uses the game-pad to control the
golfer in the gaming environment with the "5" button used to hit the ball.
Although it was a little fiddly on the original N-Gage game deck, the QD is
another story and simply plays perfectly. For that extra realism, the developers
have included a variety of obstacles to interfere with the controls such as
lakes, wind, trees and of course a variety of other golfing issues.
Graphically, Tiger Woods
PGA Tour 2004 is a visual treat on the N-Gage and uses a brilliant 3D gaming
engine to help immerse gamers into the world of Tiger Woods. All the characters
have been professionally modelled and are animated quite well (considering the
limited frame-rate) and match that with some beautiful looking environments and
you have one pumping golf game.
Musically, Tiger Woods
sounds a little dull but generally most people don't listen to music while they
play golf so what really matters in this game are the golfing sound effects that
have been professionally digitised into this version of the title. Go Tiger!
In conclusion, if you are
looking for an addictive sports game that can virtually be played anywhere, then
I would recommend Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004 because this is as close to golf as
one could get without picking up a set of clubs and hitting the courses. Check
