Good

Still in need of improvements.

Let's just get this one out of the way--visually the game isn't much improved. If you were disappointed graphically with last year's attempt, this one won't Wow you.

Essentially, gameplay is what we've all been hoping to see improvements in. While there are some improvements in swing consistency, one of the problems I had with the game was that I needed to twist the controller uncomfortably far to get the ball to curve one way or the other. On the other hand, the game works well in most other ways.

Because of its limited improvements and still not spot-on gameplay, I can only give this game a 7. With a little more time EA could have tweaked it just the right amount and made the golf game people have been waiting for since Wii Sports...

Much Better than the 07

This game is a good improvement over the 07 game.

The controls are 100% better. That's a buying point for me.

Graphics are pretty similar to 07, but I don't look for a lot of graphic pizazz with the Wii. It's all about the game play and this game has it.

Even though I can't chip to save my life, this game is a solid 7 out of 10.

This game is great, I have been playing for over a week now and it keeps getting more fun as I get better and better. To the people who complained about the new putting system, I actually think it is much better than the old system and much easier to control distance. One odd thing tho, if you hit like a 5 foot putt just a hair too hard, occasionally it just rolls right over the hole, it does not even clank out. Other than that I love this game, The career mode is great, I loved it when I started a tourney and it was match play. Ive never done match play before. Definite Keeper game.
