Very Good

The up's and down's.

The Up's: Gameplay is good as usual for a Tiger Woods game. The graphics were excellent, especially Tiger Woods himself. I felt like I was watching him on TV. There were many different features and gameplay modes to keep anyone busy.

The Down's: Inconsistent shots. (for example, it felt like you hit the ball the same way every time and sometimes it would go long and straight but others it would go off into the bushes. It could have just been me but my friends were having the same problem. I'm still a fan of the meter like in the older ones.

Conclusion: If your a Tiger Woods fan, you'll definitely like this addition to the collection. If your not a fan, you'll still play it for a couple weeks then on to the next fling.
Overall Rating: 8.0

Let me start by saying this game puts the last 360 version to shame. Which was almost expected at this point. Some of us wish EA could have done the same spit shine job to the latest Madden release, but that's for a different review.

But let's talk TIGER. In their efforts to deliver a better game, EA has succeeded. There a few new features and takes on the game that I found to be very tasty. One being the way the shots are played. The aiming device is now a circle that starts out quite large as you begin the game as a rookie, and progressively gets smaller (more accurate) as your golfer earns skill points. The Pro Shop inventory has been replenished to likes of pre-next gen versions, the graphics are a 10 (easy), and they've brought back the arcade modes and even included a driving range to practice everything from your long drives to your short game. Overall the game feels more complete than any version previous. Very fluid with little to almost no stutters or frame issues. But it's also harder. And I like this. The putting especially. Gone are the days of "Tiger Vision" and even visual shot lines. They leave you with the slope grid and that's it! I wouldn't be surprised if they make your golfer wear a blindfold in next year's release. But I think you get the point, the putting is tough to get the hang of. This game continues to bring a challenge, even to those of us who have been playing the series for years.

NOTES: I would have scored this game a 9, however the option to setup the controller to your liking is extremely limited, and it might still leave some Tiger veterans wanting more courses to play. Sorry Tiger, maybe next year.

This is my first review of a game but i'll give you the pros and cons in my eyes.

Pros -
This game pretty much sticks to what made the others good. Creating your own player goes to the extreme in allowing you to mold and shape everything exactly as you want it (even down to scars).

I enjoyed the new putting system making it more of a challenge (at least to start out with).

Obviously the replay value is great as what better way to waste an hour than fitting in a front nine of golf.

Cons -

Lack of courses. i would have liked to see more courses as a part of the package.

Golf games can only be so different. Even with the minor changes only so much can be changed and they tend to get old after a while.

Assessment - A good game, nothing spectacular or groundbreaking, but a fun game to rent and / or buy to build a collection.
