What Happened?????

I loved Tiger Woods 10 and the the new focus feature in this game is just plain annoying!! You need focus to power up your swing percentage and ball spin control and if in mid back swing or after you hit the ball you run out of focus then you can`t control the ball the way you would want to! There`s no option to shut off the focus feature so forget about that idea. Another difference is you use xp points to buy items from the golf pro shop, but you also have to use those points to improve your golf attributes to become a better player. In Tiger Woods 10 your performance on the golf course is what your attributes are based on so the better you play the higher they will go and vise versa. I am glad they kept the bonus attributes tied in with the pro shop items so if you would like to give your player a boost in certain areas of your golf game you still can.If you liked the "push button" swing method in TW 10 thats gone too! Overall I am dissappointed in the changes they made.The graphic may be better but the game play is what makes the game fun to me. If you really liked Tiger Woods 10 then you may not like 11. I would recommend renting before you go out and buy it and judge for yourself.

The graphics are improved slightly, but character faces look creepy to me. And ohh, their hair blows in the wind. Thank God.

The game is probably more realistic, but if that's what you are looking for (and I can't imagine why you would be) buy a wii. The tru aim thing is fine if you wand the game to be tediously difficult. The focus meter thing certainly adds an element of strategy, but ultimatly it just leads to the better player being more likely to lose, which is fine when you're not the best player, but otherwise it sucks. It would be fine if you could just turn it off, but you can't. I really don't understand why people want a more realistic experience. If you want a more realistic golf experience, go outside and play golf. Video games aren't meant to be realistic. That's the whole idea.

It would all be forgivable if they hadn't messed around so much with the way online games are set up. Searching for available games automatically places you in a match, no matter how many are available. The only way to see all available matches (without checking out all the different rooms in the lobby) is to do a search that comes up with no results (I just search for One Ball), then select 'browse sessions'. This is also the only way to set up a match unless you go to a lobby. There are too many rooms, which is bound to cause confusion. You also only have access to player's skill level and DNF%, no other stats, such as wins and losses, or average round. Perhaps the worst part is you can't kick players out of matches you set up. All you can do is quit the match and set up a new one and hope the person gets the hint.

As someone who played thousands of rounds of tw10, I'm very disapointed. I can only hope some of the problems will be fixed in patches because as it stands, the game is not worth your time or money. I wish they'd just re-released last years's game. Oh yea, and the whole Ryder Cup thing, who cares? It is just as tedious as everything else

I actually liked the game. It has pretty good graphics and some new features that were cool, but they want to charge for their online play. I'm so sick of these companies who find something popular and exploit it. I personally chose ps3 over xbox360 because online play is FREE! I personally will stop buying Tiger Woods' games if they keep being greedy. The 'GREED' aspect is the reason behind my low rating of this game.
