This is the first time I've ever done a review for a game, so bear with me. I haven't played a Tiger Woods game since the '07 game came out. That being said the title of this game made it a must buy for me. And to say the least I am extremely happy with the $60 price tag. The pros to this game are of course you finally being able to play at Agusta National. Without a doubt the most pretigious golf course in the entire world. But also the gameplay seems much more fluid than it did in '07. Yeah I know that was quite a few years back but, it truely does seem better. Also the graphics are AMAZING. The look of Agusta is truely remarkable and I can say that EA did a fantastic job with the layout of the course. Now for a few things that made me give this game a 9 instead of 10. The caddie system gets a little stale after a while. Yeah I know you can turn it off but still it doesnt seem needed. I suppose if you've never played golf or actually followed the sport, it might come in handy. Another thing that annoyed me was the way they make you pay for some of the extra courses in dlc. Why not put those courses in the game to begin with? I guess they couldn't have taken the time to add a few more courses but whatever. All in all I truely love playing this game and the fact that I can now play The Masters tournament is AWESOME. I really hope that they continue to keep Agusta in future games because the course draws me in every time I play it. 9/10.

Just when you thought ea could not get any more greedy they pull this! How do you make a game and charge 60 for it then 2 tourney in you have to pay to dl corse to play offline in the single player? I felt like I had just wasted 2 hours(a big chunk of it being loading) just to find out that to keep going means dl the rest of the game. Soon ea will be doing this in every game. if I get madden will I have to pay to dl the playoffs and then have to dl to play the SB? Ea has really ripped us off on this game!
The game is EPIC. Everything is vastly improved over previous years. Q6 courses in the game, along with Augusta National and the Masters (which is the first time ever in any console game). That course alone makes this game worthy of a rental or purchase.
Yes, there are 19 courses available for DLC. NO, you don't have to download any DLC to play and beat this game. Frankly, people complaining about this is ridiculous, as it's unrealistic to think that EA would include 35 courses in the game.
Trust me, if you like golf and/or you've liked playing Tiger Woods in the past, you HAVE to get this game.
