Good

Controls Much better than 07

I rented Tiger Woods 07 earlier this year, and I absolutely hated it (you can find my review if you like... I gave it a 4).

The big step up here was the motion controls on the Wii. The problems that I had in Tiger Woods 07 with the game registering a 50% power & off target swing WHILE I WAS STILL IN MY BACKSWING seems to be fixed. I played for a while, and it hasn't happened once.

The Good
-Motion controls are much improved over TW07
-A few game modes to choose from with plenty of replay value
-The club on-screen tracks real motion better than TW07
-Announcers are still relatively mean, but not quite as annoying
-Golfer is completely customizable

The Bad
-Graphics look the same as TW07... maybe slightly better than PS2 quality
-Still can't get a draw shot right, even when I twist my wrist pre-swing to close the club face
-Game is full priced even though it isn't much different

Summary
-I'm considering keeping this one. With the control issue fixed, it is a fun experience (unlike my real life golf game). If you like Golf, rent this one on the Wii.

I've been looking forward to this game for awhile. My first impressions are that this is a great improvement over the 2007 version.

The game play is great. It's cool how much control the Wiimote gives you with your swing.

I was expecting slightly better graphics, but, I have to remember that this is a Wii.

Overall, this is a really nice golf game and the best golf game for the Wii. Definitely worth a rent and if you love golf, just buy it.

The game overall was pretty fun. The swinging motion was sensative, which gave a nice realistic touch. My main annoyance was with the hand orientation. I'm left handed, and although I choose left handed orientation when I started the training, the normal game switched me back to right handed. This is a minor thing and easy to change, but was annoying. It made the game seem backwards on all of my strokes until I figured out that it was right handed. Overall a fun game though.
