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!
This version was better than the last. Had good side games to play, a good Tiger challenge to play, good AI characters, and good courses. The biggest drawback is when the designers put the ball spin and power shot as the LB (which is the same side as the swing stick) this really ruined this version for me. I only played this for a short time and got rid of it. disappointed in this release of the Tiger Woods series.
For the most part, its a really good game, especially one to own. Lots a ways to improve and different challenges to make it last awhile, even longer if you're a golfer who can get into the technicalities of it all. Personally I'd like to have seen it move quite a bit faster, especially when playing computer players. Watching the opponent line up and then yammer about this and that on every hole got annoying 2 mins in, let alone 17 holes later, let me click past it and get to my shot. Another cause of frustration was the controls. It seems like EA was looking for a bit too precise control whereas the slightest off movement of the thumb could blow your entire hole, and no matter who you are, its bound to happen. Ala Guitar Hero and driving games, its time for next gen consoles to introduce a golf controller. I have seen Golden Tee's TV connection controller so it definitely something plausible. A little more mulligan allowance in different areas of the game, less pro shop involvement in your skill levels and selectable head to head challenges would have brought more to the table as well. All this being said, its still a good game, well worth its day in court, but I am just expecting more improvement in coming editions.
