Cyber Tiger is very entertaining golf game and is my choice for best golf game on the N64. What can I say, the analog control stick and human looking characters really do it for me.
CyberTiger is a decent game. It's fun--I'm not a golf aficionado, but I still really enjoyed my time with this cart. And that saddens me even more, that I have to deduct points for the mediocre graphics and wretched music. If you've been looking for a good golfing experience on your Nintendo 64, and you prefer a PGA license over our red-capped mascot hero, CyberTiger is the best--and sadly, really the only--choice to make. Definitely better than Waialae, CyberTiger is quick and delightful.
Cyber Tiger, in my opinion, is one of the most entertaining golf games I've played in years. Not since the original Hot Shots Golf, have I found such pleasure playing 18 holes of golf. If you love golf, or just remotely like the sport, give this one a "swing". It's more fun than watching Caddy Shack part 2, of course so is a root canal. Bad comparison I guess. Seriously, this game is a blast and shouldn't be missed by anyone who still owns a N64. If you have a PlayStation, Cyber Tiger is slightly different, but just as enjoyable. Fore!
Watching Tiger Woods now is akin to watching Joe Dimaggio in his prime: a player so captivating and graceful that he elevates his sport to a level previously thought unreachable by its ardent followers. Woods has become so good, so fast that it's mind-boggling. He has broken many of golf's barriers -- racial and otherwise -- but Woods' greatest accomplishment is elevating the coolness factor of golf to a point where it now appeals to a demographic normally excluded from the sport. The same could be said for Tiger's first foray onto the N64, CyberTiger. EA Sports and Saffire's first collaborative effort, CyberTiger takes the normally stodgy approach to videogame golf and starts anew, with an innovative control scheme and refreshing arcade atmosphere that draws nongolfers into the sport and gets them hooked. Though not without its flaws, CyberTiger turns out to be strong enough -- and different enough -- to be an enjoyable experience for all.

To its credit, you can rip through a round quickly, but I find this game stuck in a void. It is neither an enjoyable arcade nor simulation. Like I said, Mario Golf blows this away.
Sports Gaming Network
If you are looking for a golf simulation on the N64, this isn't it. With arcade style game play, CyberTiger is a quick play best suited for multi-player action. The lack of courses and simple AI keep it from being a must buy for the single player or golf sim fanatic. But if you want a game you can play with the siblings, kids, or friends, CyberTiger is definitely a game to try.
Nintendo Power Magazine
The extra months of development have truly paid off with a fun golf game that lies somewhere between Mario and the PGA. An original control interface and the power-ups set it apart from your dad's golf video games.
To be brutally honest, CyberTiger would have had a tough time competing with Mario Golf and Hot Shots even if it had been released on time. The fact is that in the quest for a unique-looking interface, the developers managed to come up with an arrangement that is far from intuitive. All the necessary features are there (things like club choice, swing meters, terrain and distance indicators), but they're all either arranged or displayed in such a strange way that this game requires careful study of the instruction manual before you can have even a slight idea of what you're doing. This, coupled with unimpressive graphics and dull sound, pretty much doom this title to mediocrity. Overall, it's a pity that the rest of the game couldn't achieve the same high quality that can be seen in the controls. At least there's that outrageous battle mode to be factored into the equation.
Overall, CyberTiger just doesn't feel like a fun, escape-for-a-day-on-the-green kind of golf game. It's a chore to play and not even fun to look at. If you are a novice or a serious N64 gamer who wants a fun, fantasy-style title that still plays like an earnest game of golf, check out Mario Golf or hold off for Mario Golf 2 instead.
