I have always been a fan of the Tiger Woods series. Even in the years that felt stripped down or simply rehashed versions of prior years (which accounts for many of them), I was swinging away.
This year the Legends of the Majors provides a fun walk through history. The older games even have a grainy presentation to make it feel like you are watching old film.
The swing has been tweeked slightly. Good improvements like the accuracy being based more on the timing and rhythm of your shot rather than hitting a straight line (which is still important nonetheless). It's minor, but it adds more of a natural golf feeling, seeing as how real shots in the Scots game is the same.
Country Clubs are beefed way up this year. There is competition to be had here. And even within your own club there is a sense of friendly competition. During rounds you'll see your stats compared to those of the best of the best in your own club. It provides a little extra incentive without forcing your to go head to head.
Online tournaments are easy to set up and/or join. You even get to see "ghosts" of other golfers shots all around you on the course. Giving you the true feeling that others are a part of it. It seems gimmicky at first, but it keeps it feeling fresh.
Female golfers are more prominent this time around. Lots of LPGA stars are in the game, and that's a good thing. Women play golf too! And it's always seemed odd that the LPGA wasn't a bigger part of the game.
Unfortunately the list of improvements over last year mostly ends there. It doesn't seem enough to justify owning your own copy if you have TW13. But as a rental, and if you are a fan of the series, I highly recommend it. It will keep you occupied for some time and provide a nice dose of entertainment. I had fun swinging away.
was a good looking game but it was hard for me to play because of numbness in my hands due to ms. they really need to consider the people who have a hard time with the stick control in baseball and golf games , u have no choice in the golf game and the baseball online is ridiculousness u cant use the a button to swing and pitch
