This years Tiger is just as awesome as the previous years. The focus meter is a great idea. In previous years I could boost my ball and spin to where I wanted to put it, it was way too easy at times. Now with the focus meter it limits how many times you can boost, spin, and use putt preview. I usually save it for those long eagle puts and use a couple previews. I do agree it would be nice to go back to the old way, but I could also just put in last years game. The graphics are a smidge better. Real time wind makes it very interesting, hitting the ball and midswing it goes up 10 mph makes for some tough shots. The way I look at it is Tiger is getting more and more like actual golf. The previous years I could birdie and eagle every hole with no problem. I have yet to go online cause my guy is still too weak, but I'm looking forward to the team play, look for me and my buddies at the top of the leaderboad!!

Listen to me as i tell you that this is a great game. the graphics look amazing,game play is at its best,and the option to play the Ryder Cup with your friends via online is a beast.!!!. You can build your created golfer and play the PGA Tour offline or online. This is a challenge to build your player as you basically start from the very bottom. Once you start doing all the skill challenges and playing the PGA tour,your character will eventually become good. This is not an easy game to play at all. If you do not have patience and check your shots,wind,draw,or fade before you swing you will be scoring over Par in no time. this is a great game all around offline and online,but its very very challenging. you really have to know your golf game to compete against the CPU and players online. This game is great to go into you Q.
Although I was somewhat pleased with the game I still found it rather repetitive. The game hasn't seen much change within the last 4 or 5 years but, it still keeps me coming back to play it again the next year. Although I would never personally buy one of these games I would recommend it to somebody (to rent) who has enjoyed the previous years of the game.
