Tiger Woods 09
The best yet!
I just finished the demo and the best part of it is its simplicity. The controls are very fluid and with the new trainer mode just completes the package. Raising you stats is changed but for the better, like Madden, Tiger adapts as you play and you will gain your attributes as you go. I didn't buy last years after I played the demo, but this is a must for any golf fan.
I loved the last game, the 08 edition, but the only thing that i think the game is lacking is they need to figure out a new putting format. It is way too complicated for beginners to the game to figure out how to make difficult putts. It took me a few days to make more of the longer putts on the 08 edition, but other than that, if u don't have a golf game and want one, this is a must buy.
Great Game overall
I love the game. Gameplay is great. Graphics and courses look awesome. Overall a really good game and fun if your a golf nut. My only issue is the new attribute system. I think its a great idea although needs to be edited to make it more realistic. Like You need to literally be perfect to have a skill level of around 9. I have got my atributes to above 9's. So I literally need t birdie like every hole to keep that. I think thats a bit silly. I have had rounds where I has 14 under par and I lost points after the round was over in all 4 attribute sections. Thats stupid. I think any round that is 4 under par or better you should gain points. Between 4 under and par you should stay the same. Anything above par you should loose attributes. I should not loose attributes when I shoot 14 under par.
Not The Best
This is a good golf game but it is not the best. The graphics are Sh*t for a ps3 game ( The water and plants look fake) and the music is crappy. I am a golf nut and I buy TW's games every year. This is the best one on the ps3. The character creator is okay. Saints Row 2 has a better customization system. Saints Row 2 has better water and plant graphics and they are PS2 quality. I believe the putting needs more work. Some times when I putt a dead-on accurate shot it doesn't even go straight. I was not very impressed with that. I wish that they had the Titleist Pro-V1 balls in the game and that they had more clubs you could buy. I will not buy any golfing games again because they make me hate the sport. I think I will stick to playing the real game of golf.
worse and worse
This game was amazing back in 2004 and 2005. After that, they began fooling with the controls and trying to make it more realistic than it has to be. You see more lines and crap that doesn't make it fun. I think they should go back to the 2005 format for the 2010 games, more people will like it and enjoy it...bad choices are being made.
Great golf game!
I cannot get enough of this game. The career mode is very fun and the game is difficult enough to where it is very fun but not so difficult that you don't want to play.
Best TW Game Ever ???
Is this the best Tiger Woods PGA Tour game ever ? In my honest opinion, I think so. Just imagine being able to play a golf video game which makes you feel like you are actually there. Take Pebble Beach for example. The ocean, with the waves crashing, and the sun getting ready to set over the horizon. It's like being there for a major championship, on Sunday, when the last group comes up the 18th fairway. Its just breath-taking. As to the game itself, its almost an accurate description of the way golf should be played. Albeit, the putting mechanic still needs work, but that's fixable. McCord and Feherty are gone, replaced by Kelly Tilghman and Sam Torrence. That's why in the sound department, its gets less than a 10. All other sounds are pretty good, like the waves crashing on the shores of Pebble Beach, or the birds chirping. Lets all bring back McCord and Feherty, at least some of us could appreciate their banter. Kelly and Sam are just too "dry". The Dynamic Attribute System, Coach Hank Haney, The Club Tuner and Simultaneous Play online, are great additional features. Seems like its a little too easy to max out your golfer, with all the coaches drills. Having 6 of the courses availiable at the start, instead of the 16 courses, is kind of a pain, but what else can we do. EA makes you play the other modes to unlock the courses. If all the course were unlocked, then everyone would just play Tour mode, or Online. The other game modes are still there from Tiger 08, the Tiger Challenges have been re-hashed, but are somewhat enjoyable. Looks like the "rubberband AI" is gone. I hate it went on Tour you shoot a 78 then a 65, and all of the players shoot 67 then 84 then next round. It does happen on Tour sometimes in real-life, but the whole field doesn't get worse, maybe only 1%, unless you are an un-named golf. whose initials are JD, then it happens all the time. If you get a chance to get this game, I still believe there can be things changed to make it more a sim than an arcade title. There is always next year.
