Electronic Gaming Monthly‘s two sports reviewers gave the PlayStation version scores of 8.5 and 9.0 out of 10, remarking that it retained the excellent aspects of previous games in the series while dramatically improving on the graphics. They also felt that it successfully appealed to both novices and golfing pros.[2] GamePro criticized it for having only two courses but highly praised the precise level of control over each shot, selection of players, three dimensional terrain, and digitized sprites. They concluded that “With spectacular graphics and amazingly comprehensive controls, PGA Tour ’96 immerses you in intense armchair golf.”[11] In contrast, Maximum called it “the weakest of the series yet”. While they too approved of the ability to control every aspect of each shot, they felt that the game was ruined by the unrealistic ball physics, particularly that balls stop dead with almost no rolling when they hit the ground, and that putted balls stop suddenly instead of gradually slowing.[3] Next Generation approved of the game for its easy interface and numerous play options, though unlike GamePro and EGM they found the graphics to be “a little on the underwhelming side” by the standards of current generation consoles.[4]
