I think people are being too hard on this game. I gave it an 8. Graphics are good and it is very challenging, but i think that is a good thing. No, i haven't gotten a hole-in-one yet. yes, i have to restart skills challenges frequently. This leads to a bit of frustration, but hey, its GOLF.
I think they made great strides to add realism with the gusting wind and focus meter, which both i think are very cool. You can still make amazing shots, and when you do they are that much more satisfying. The still gamelike feel with a little bit more challenge makes for an emotional rollercoaster of golf greatness. I still think it is silly that you can add spin when in-flight, but if you couldn't it would just be that much harder, and people would complain that much more. The focus meter at least adds some strategy to the mix.
I always thought it was ridiculous that i'd end a round 20 under in past tiger games. I think they were too quick to "master" and the ease of play drastically shortened the entertainment lifespan. I feel tiger 11 will continue being fun and challenging for a long time. I'm glad i bought this game

I really wanted to like this newest installment of TW, but I just can't. The new Focus system, while interesting, really puts a damper on the gameplay. You can no longer spin the ball when you really need to, unless you have focus, no more being able to boost on every drive if thats what your into, with out focus...But really, I can't wrap my head around having to pay to play online with this game, I mean isn't that the whole point in owning a PS3?? If I wanted to pay to play against other people, I would start my gold membership on my 360. Oh well, back to TW10 for me...

WHILE I LIKE THE GAMEPLAY OF THIS VERSION, I AM APPALLED THAT I HAVE TO PAY MONEY TO PLAY ONLINE. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN AFTER THE BETA ONLINE VERSION STARTED. THE ONLY THING I AM GLAD OF IS THAT I AM A GAMEFLY MEMBER AND DID NOT PAY $59.99 TO PURCHASE THE GAME ONLY TO FIND HOW EA IS OUT TO GOUGE US. I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT THE UPCOMING MADDEN 11 WILL NOT DO THE SAME. THANKS FOR GAMEFLY!
