in the previous years, tiger has been a much more arcade style of game letting you max your stats and basically destroy any chance of competition... it was fun for a while, but with the lack of difficulty ruins the experience.
this year gave a major overhaul of tiger. it has a much more realistic feel to the game, you cant jump ahead and get crazy skills, the ball reacts much more realistically, but the putting is what is killing it for me. im not the kind of person who gets angry on the fly, but the putting in this game is quite absurd. was putting in previous years too easy? yes, absolutely. this year is basically like playing with a blindfold on. they give you a grid to "help" and they give an ideal path, but neither really give you a good idea how hard to hit, or how to adjust your path left or right. on shots with fairly flat ground, its not bad at all, but if you end up with a shot that curves, or goes downhill slightly...forget it. it is amazingly hard to get your angle correct, and even if you do...the speed is equally impossible. i dont see why they couldnt just add a little bit of randomness into your shot like they did with your drives. they should have left the old caddy tip method, but added a touch of luck for your shots...like anything over 6 feet has a modifier that your speed may be too slow or fast, or perhaps it could travel on a slightly different path.
i really enjoyed the tiger series, but im giving up this year...i can only take so much aggrevation.
This made the game suck for me I wanted to buy this game my friends and 4 of us have the 360 we all bought gears we all were going to buy tiger I even bought the upgrades for my chicks person ahead of time I am very happy i rented it from here that dumb grid thing makes me pretty mad yo. no caddy tip Lame man if you want it to feel all real like some golden tee or what ever they were going for let people turn it off but let me turn it ON! 2008 caddy tip?
Create a face feature is a cool option.. where you can add your digital likeness to your created character.. but other than that.. this is the same ol tiger woods game.. by the time you get your characters stats up enough to really play.. you have lost interest in this game!
