i love the tiger woods games of the past, but the first generation for the wii has a lot to work on with the controls. The biggest problem is the inconsistency with the swing, especially when putting. The drives/fairway play is not too bad, but the putting is horendous. One time you can draw back around your head and the putter will not move but an inch, and other times you can twitch your hand and the back swing is enormous, and it works vice versa. This inconsistency caused the putting to be overly frustrating and ends any fun you were having very quickly.
TW 07 has a lot of potential, but there are some things that EA Sports definitely needs to fix. There are "phantom" swings and times when you hit the ball to your full potential and it barely moves. The graphics are good, and the courses are fabulous, but the overall game needs some fine tuning for the Wii.
I was very excited to get a chance to play Tiger Woods Golf on the Wii. I'm a fan of playing golf recreationally, and I was looking forward to being able to escape to golf whenever I had a little time to spare.
Unfortunately, I was terribly disappointed and I only kept the game for a week or so. Maybe it is me, but the game mis-registered my swings. Very often, in my back swing, the game would register a swing that was way off target and only at about 50%... and I hadn't even swung yet. I know I'm a cruddy golfer in real life, but I can definitely do without those types of frustrations in my video game golfing.
The game concept seemed fun, but I couldn't get past the control problem. I liked having the ability to power up your golfer by assigning points that are wond during play. I just wished that the controls worked better. I'll try again with TW 08 when it comes out.
