Applelinks has posted a new review of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008, the latest Mac incarnation of the popular golf sim. The game gives golfing enthusiasts a wide range of play and customization options, and offers the chance to go head to head against PGA legends. Applelinks gave Tiger Woods 2008 a score of 4 out of 5.

To start, you can pick a golfer from among the many professionals or make your own. You have extensive control over nearly every aspect of how your golfer looks ,from the size of his nose to how big his feet are to him being tall and skinny or short and fat. If you aren't particular about how you look, you can use the default model or the random generator to make one for you. Having such precise control is a bit overwhelming, but being able to make your computer golfer like you in real life is pretty nifty.

The different game modes are what makes Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 so fun. You can jump right into playing with Play Now, which takes you to a random course with random course conditions. For more precise control, you use the Practice Mode which lets you pick the course, weather conditions, time of day, and more. The Custom Game mode lets you pick the course, how many people you play against, and you can even set up side bets. You can play any of these with one of the professional golfers provided or the ones you create.

If you want something a bit more involved, you can go on the PGA Tour, which starts you out as a hack golfer and takes you all the way through amateur events to professional games, and finally to the PGA Tour which puts you against professional golfers. In this mode, you have to use your custom golfer and watch your money since events have entry fees and it costs money to travel to them, as well as upgrading the clubs you use and the clothes you wear. You have tasks you need to accomplish before you can get into events, and there are tutorials and challenges that you can take to get better at various aspects of golf. By succeeding at the events and challenges, you get points that you can put into four attributes of your custom golfer (power, long game, short game, putting) to get better at them.
