Same exhausting Tw release...except now I cant putt worth a darn!!! It's difficult to go through hole after hole and not make any progress!! Cheat codes are an essential with this type of game play! I suggest waiting a year or two for this one...because with Tiger you have to cheat to win!! {wait for cheating season)

Very Good

Much Better, But Not Perfect Yet...

If you liked either of the previous installments of Tiger Woods PGA Tour on the Wii, you'll appreciate 2009's improved menu interface, graphics, and controls; as well as the addition of online play. It's not perfect by any means, but there is a noticeable improvement over the previous games, and it's obvious that EA tried to make the game a little more Wii-friendly this year.

The interface of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2009 has been redesigned from the ground up. No more squinting to see hard-to-read text in a counter-intuitive interface. The new menu's are MUCH easier to read and navigate compared to previous years. That's not to say they completely rebuilt EVERYTHING from scratch, though, as there is a large amount of recycled functionality hidden behind the shiny new interface. Overall, though, 2009 gets big points for finally looking like a Wii title, and not just another port. It's just a shame it took them 3 years to do it.

The controls have also been improved upon over the previous installments, most notably with the addition of new swing mechanics and a new putting system. The swing system is now closer to being 1:1, rather than the wind-up method used in previous versions. I wouldn't say they nailed it, but they are at least making steps in the right direction. Players of previous years will be happy to know that the premature swing glitch seems to be gone. The changes to putting are a bit different and a power meter has been implemented to gauge how hard the ball with be hit. It's a little weird at first, but it works once you've mastered it.

Online play has been added this year as well, a feature many have been waiting for. While public games look to be a breeding ground for ultra-competitive players, private matches between friends can be a fun experience and move along fairly smooth with "All-Play".

If you were slightly disappointed with the previous installments, you might want to give '09 a try. It is improved enough to at least justify a rent.
