Best DS Golf title, but still room for improvement

TW08 improvements over the first DS title are staggering, but still limited compared to disc-based incarnations. The stylus-swing mechanics are much more intuitive, but if you still can't get it there are two button-press modes you can select from as well. The PGA tour mode will keep you playing for years, but the Tiger challenge is a little short and I miss a decent practice mode and driving range. The WiFi mode is a lot of fun but you can't add strangers you play with to your friends list, and the mic isn't enabled to let you communicate before, after or in between holes which I think would add a lot to the experience. As for the courses, don't expect to see anything new if you've played any other TW title in the past 4 years. I would like to see Tiger's dream holes in the DS version next time and some extra, more creative challenges in the Challenge mode.

We all know that the DS can't support vast areas and high graphical output, but Tiger Woods 08 is still a fun game to play. The graphics are simplified, but the creators didn't slack on the gameplay side. Intuitive controls and gameplay, along with several different modes and WFC WiFi play make this a very good sports game.
Tiger Woods 08 falls short after a week or two, however. The gameplay, which seemed great, starts to get stale and I found myself only playing when I was extremely bored and had played through my other games recently. It is a good game to have, however, for a mindless play on a road trip or while waiting somewhere.
