Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08
Missed the eagle but tapped in for birdie.
This is a great game to play. Very challenging, especially if you start your career with a self generated character. To me, that is the coolest feature. I am playing as myself against Tiger Woods! You actually import pictures of yourself into the game. The graphics are good but not great. They have little effect on my gaming experience. The analog swing is very touchy but so is a golf club. Keeping the ball on the fairway is easy as soon as you find your swing. You will hit more long putts than you would think, but there is no other feeling like sinking a 50 footer when you have to make that birdie. All in all, this is another fine game in the Tiger Woods cannon. I would recommend this game to anyone who loves golf or is looking for a calm game that will keep you hooked for a very long time.
What needs to change
I looking forward to the new release BUT, I really wish they would get rid of the announcers. I'm just sick of them. they should at least offer an alternative. I had a golf game on the PS1 that even had that option. As well, they should fix the handicap adjustment to allow for you and the other player to have different levels of play as opposed to blanket like it is. astly., they need to allow you to add a player to play with you on the Tour championship. you may wanna see yourself actually waxing the competition and it would provide an option so it wont get so boring playing it alone ALL the time.
I'm renting it first.
I've become disillusioned with the franchise after TW07. I pray they finally fixed some of the animation/clipping/"floating ball" glitches that I've encountered since TW05. I'd much rather have EA stick with one franchise game and have downloadable patches, updates, courses and data for 2 or 3 years (I'd even pay for it) rather then have them keep producing annual games with bugs that never get fixed. Yes, I know the pressure the developers are under and yes I've already complained to EA a few times directly but I'm not going to pay retail to beta test video games anymore - enough is enough.
Greatest Golf Game in History Returns
I can honestly say that I anticipate each new Tiger Woods game with as much enthusiasm as I do any other game. It is just about as close to the real deal as you can get. I have rarely had more fun than getting into Gameface and trying to create myself in the Virtual world. Now with the new Photo game-face feature, I don't have to spend an hour creating.(even though it is fun). I am hoping that eventually the next-gen versions are able to incorporate as many different courses as the last-gen games.
I can't wait for 08. 07 was nearly flawless, I only hope the spectators have a bit better AI - yes it is a source of endless amusement to turn mulligans on and just take pot shots at the crowd (some of the head shot animations are hilarious) but it would be nice if the entire crowd didnt react as one, and if they'd be smart enough to atleast try to avoid the ball. Its odd seeing 100+ people all performing the same animation at the same time.
My friends, kids and I love playing these games together I just pray you can create more than 4 characters or it will dissapoint me again, and I hope you can add other human players to play w/when you do the season, kind of boring for others to just watch me play. I just got 07 and I was excited to make everyone cause I hadn't got TW game in a while and found out 4 was the max.
TEE TIME FOR ALL
This is always the most exciting game of the year for me. Had it not been for Tiger I would have never bought a Sony system. This game always excites and it is the one game that I wait for all year. This year will be no exception and hopefully they will have some more different courses like they did in 2007.
It's Tiger Time again!
Sweet! It's Tiger Time again. The realism is goin off the chain these days, especially with the "put your own photo in" feature. I can't wait to play the new courses. Hopefully they will figure out a way to include the Masters in the game some day.
