OK slightly better graphics, nice new crowds to explain the phantom cheering from the X-Box 1 version, but not worth another $10. No way. No how. You get less than Half the courses, and not nearly the depth. EA has shamed itself in to a corner with another half baked limited version of what could have been great. Forget about buying this. It's kind of worth a rental, but if you already own the TW PGA TOUR 2006 from last generation, don't bother with this at all.
Note to EA Games. Sit in a corner and think about what you have done to your 360 releases, and get it together fast.

First, the good. This game is a lot of fun, even if you aren't a huge golf fan. Graphics are excellent, and game play is very very smooth. Some of the camera angles on ball shots are amazing, especially the view that is about 3 inches away from the ball, spinning and flying in air. (this shot is especially awesome in High Def)
The only bad I have with this game aren't very bad at all. I would have liked the "target capture the flag" games that have been in previous versions, those are fun. Maybe some more celebrations on tournament wins would be nice. Probably the most noticeable bad review would be that there are only I think 6 courses. Would like more. Not much bad stuff at all I can think of.
Want a decent golf game? Do yourself a favor, DONT RENT THIS ONE! Go rent LINKS 2004 for Original Xbox (it'll play on 360). Its MUCH much better. This game is REDICULOUSLY difficult!!!
The Learning Curve is SO DIFFICULT! The mechanics of the game are VERY UNforgiving, if you don't swing PERFECTLY straight. There's no meter to judge power. There's no lines to judge accuracy. There's no room for mistakes. This game is for ULTRA golf-game Pro's ONLY! Again, if you want a GREAT golf game, go rent LINKS2004 for Original Xbox (It'll play on 360). Remove this game from your game Queue, and do yourself a favor in the process.
