Horrible

Tiger Woods not so great.

From the get go this game was a problem.You would barely swing the club and it would go miles, and vise-versa. The game play is so choppy and the graphics are sub-par. Not that I was expecting anything great since it is the Wii version, but it was worse than I expected. Overall this game is nothing like it says it's supposed to be and the game play is horrific at best. Renter beware.

This game may be great if you are not a real golfer. But if you enjoy hitting the real links as well as the virtual you will be dissapointed.

Being that I am a golf pro, I found the game to be very annoying, in the sence that the swing I would use would not translate to the virtual shot I would hit.

You have to be too dramatic with your movements, and THIS GAME WILL MESS WITH YOUR REAL GOLF SWING!the game will promote incorrect movements to strike the ball correctly.

Really Bad

This should be called Tiger Woods 07.1!

I bought Tiger Woods 07 when I first got my Wii. The game had a lot of flaws that a patch would fix. Unfortunately, EA doesn't believe in patches. Instead you get a new FULL PRICED release like Tiger Woods 08!

I was disgusted when I put in TW 08 and couldn't tell if I was sent the TW 07 version by mistake. I was even more irate when I noticed my characters and game progress was transferred over!

I'm happy there is a service like GameFly because EA didn't get any of my cash in this blatant money-grab attempt!

If you have never played TW 07, then you'll most likely enjoy TW 08, but only after you can decipher the weird logic in the game. For example, your ball is in the rough and shown with 60% superimposed over the image. This readout is never explained in the game and we could never figure out what it meant. I could swing and get 110% power and the ball would travel 10 feet or I could reset and swing 40% and the ball would rocket down the course!

Long story short, not worth the time or effort. Join the line of people waiting for a decent golf game on the Wii.
