The Career mode is good. You get to play minor tournaments to build up some cash and boost your stats, then enter the big-time where the marquee names work the crowd into a fist-pumping frenzy. An added layer of television presentation helps distinguish the major competitions. You can even play tournaments online, although that option wasn't up and running at the time of review, so all the reviewers got was an error message. Anyway, with 27 courses to explore – that's 486 holes of golf, math fans – they would want to play a lot longer offline before they would consider venturing onto the net for a thrashing. Beast of a game, this.
