At Least Tiger is Back in the Virtual World

Like Madden, the Tiger franchise had become very stale and less innovating with every release. Unlike Madden, the new release, The Masters, improves vastly on previous titles.

What I like:
- The Road to the Masters. The new career mode is awesome. Just about everything is improved from past incarnations, with two features adding to realism: The Masters is the ultimate goal, and I like the ranking system that I don't remember being in previous titles.

- The gameplay. This year seems vastly improved and more realistic from past titles. It doesn't feel as arcade like. I don't know if it will change as I progress, but putt preview is something that I've noticed to be in very limited use. This makes reading the greens important since you don't get to preview the putt. The gameplay all around just seems much better and more real.

- The caddy. He can be annoying sometimes, but I welcome this addition. He gives good and bad advice, so you have to know when you can trust his advice and when it's a good idea to listen to your instincts.

- Jim Nantz and the commentary. Finally it feels like I'm playing a golf game with real commentators. SVP was fine for the game before, but he doesn't give commentary.

- The graphics. Not vastly improved, but definitely looks better. As I said, Augusta looks spectacular. Everything looks like it's gone up a notch from previous titles.

What I don't like:
- Lots of loading. I had to try and find something truly negative about the game, and there is quite a bit of loading. But the game looks, sounds, and plays so good that it's easy to look past it.

- Players enter events they normally wouldn't, like Tiger in the 'Hawaiian Open'.

Honestly, this game is a buy if you're a golf fan. This game is highly enjoyable to play, and the new career mode is full of tiger blood (win!). Definite rent for casual gamers, definite buy for sports fans.

This game is great for Golf. Can use PS Move and play the Masters. What other games can do that? Gotta love the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12. Jim Nantz is great in the game too.

I have owned multiple installments of Tiger Woods golf and this one is by far the best. Even without Augusta National its still the best. Even though that course really ups the value. The Par ''3'' Course is a blast too. I will be buying this game from GameFly!!
