Tiger Woods 2008+?

Basically this games is TW2008 with different putting controls. The really good news is the 'phantom swing' problem has been fixed/sidestepped mostly which is a considerable improvement.

1:1 swing mechanics ... meh. If that is what you are expecting then you will be disappointed. I suppose I could say that 1:1 is about 50% correct. I don't find it to detract from the gameplay.

The draw/fade problem is not fixed either but the new swing mode does attempt to permit controlled draw/fade for gameplay but by no means anywhere near 1:1 swing mechanics. In advanced swing mode draw/fade is very out of sorts-the new club tuner tool does "fix" a swing to moderate excessive draw/slice but I find that is not enough. Still have to say that advanced swing mode is essentially unplayable.

If you insist on having online play then this is an acceptable entry into the playing field. If you don't care about online play and already have TW2008 then wait for the 2010 version with the new motion control hardware upgrade.

Thanks

I have Tiger Woods 07 & 08. I rented this one hoping it b better. Overall I do like it better. But the putting on this one is maddeningly difficult, and unrealistic. There are puts that can't be made, no matter what u do, and the putting motion is way to long. U almost have to swing like u would with any other club. If they fixed the putting, this would be worth buying. I will wait 4 the next version to come out before buying a new one.

Good Game....horrible putting. Hopefully, they correct it in the '10 version.
