EA is out of control with their online passes and DLC. Im sick of paying full price for a game that only gives you half the content. I also dont mind putting in the time to unlock it myself. Have done it on other titles but this game seems to want to frustrate you into submission.
EA will not stop pushing the envelope on draining customers out of every penny unless consumers stop buying their games. EA is like democrats, they wont stop finding ways of taxing every penny possible till you vote them out.
I loved tiger woods 09, hated 10 and 11, never played 12, and this year decided to give 13 a try now that the ps move has had some time to work out the kinks. Unfortunately, It's still not very good.
The game offers hints while playing the game on how to control the move, but no real tutorial. I'm still not sure if I'm supposed to be standing perpendicular or parallel to the ps eye, but trust me, I've tried every way I can stand in front of this thing and no technique has worked any better than the previous one. Furthermore, a lot of the time the screen tells me I'm not in view of the camera no matter where I stand and how bright the lights are in the room, yet I can still take a shot.
Another frustrating thing is the inconsistency of the shooting mechanics. For example, off the tee my shots are usually registered as under swung, slow shots, but when my player is on the fringe of the green and I've set my shot up to be a little chip, I pull back the move controller just a little bit past my back foot and give a little tap to the ball, and it goes flying 130yds, over the flag, over the grandstands, and out of bounds. Now I don't know if Tiger Woods can do it, but from my experience I know a ball is not gonna fly 130yds when my club never swings above my waist. If I try to compensate and hit even lighter, which is completely unrealistic by the way, the shot goes 2ft in front of my player.
After several frustrating hours of trying to figure this out, I've come to the conclusion that this is not a fun move game. It takes longer to set up a shot in this game than it does to finish a hole on one of these courses in real life. Not fun. Not a good simulation. If you prefer playing with a regular controller, it's not bad. Just boring.
