Tiger Woods '06 Golf

The graphics are excellent, if you shank into the crowd they even hop around massaging the spot where they got hit. It plays pretty well but takes awhile to get used to adjusting your swing power because there's no meter like other games. Maybe the designers think this makes it more realistic, but since I'm not swinging a real club, especially the putter, I just can't get a good feel for the power of my stroke.

It's Tiger

It's a Tiger game. The game was definitely rushed to get ready for launch and there was a great deal of things that should have been available that weren't, but it was a golf game to play on the 360. The game had some bugs, but overall was enjoyable. I played this game when it first came out and liked playing it at the time. At this point, I would recommend '07 over this game, but this one will do in a pinch to satisfy a needed golf fix.

Better than '07

The dynamics of this Tiger game is a little different than I had expected at first, but I've learned to love it to the point where '07 just sucks in comparison. The career in this game is the key part. After you've created your character, you can either play what is like training, various challenges on each course, like longest drive, closest to the pin, to straight up games against some pros. Or you can get right into the tournaments and play your way to a PGA championship.

The game dynamics have always been good for tiger woods, pull back on the analogue stick for your backs wing, push forward to hit the ball. And your appropriate spin and power boost while tapping the shoulder button as much as you can. You can even switch which stick is your shot stick and which is the shape stick (where you hit the ball), which is something that I appreciated a lot.

Overall, I'd say its one of the best golf games out for the 360, definitely better than '07.
