A review on the Cubed 3 game site pans the Tiger Woods 2005 for Nintendo DS. While the dual screen gameplay allows for a swing system where you actually “swing” the stylus, the reviewer says that:
EA have somehow managed to suck all the life, soul and fun out of this game leaving you with an infuriating, tedious pile of green and brown textures and annoying gameplay. In all fairness it looks quite nice, but animation is smooth, the courses look solid and detailed, but no matter how competent the game may look it just lacks any sense of fun and your incentive to play along will simply wilt away. The whole game looks drab, dreary and is utterly forgettable.
