Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08
Will We Get a Real Swing Engine?
While I still enjoy TW07 for the Wii, it is a game that is seriously flawed. The biggest question was "why didn't EA write a real swing engine that truly mapped the motion of the Wii remote"? You couldn't take a real golf swing without serious problems occurring, like the infamous "phantom" shot. Putting was even worse, often not allowing you to hit the ball far enough to reach the hole (even on a 20 foot putt). Quite simply, a game that was rushed to market, when it could've and should've been the best golf sim ever. Now we have '08 coming out, and the questions are the same: will we get a true swing engine for the Wii version. Why can the developers at Nintendo pull this off for Wii Sports, but the developers at EA not do it? In any case, I would think long and hard before pre-ordering this game (sorry EB). If the swing problems aren't fixed, this will just be another exercise in extreme frustration.
i heard that in TW07 it was to easy to slice while trying to add a little curve and it had bad swing control that wasnt even close to 1:1 like Nintendo's golf. that alone stoped me from buying it because thats what i liked so much about Wii play golf. i dont want the motion to just trigger a back swing animation and i dont want a setting that has me hit a perfect shot everytime either. from what EA has shown us on the WII the graphics are gona suck so i hope they at least get the gameplay where it should be because i realy wana buy TW 08. Madden wasnt too bad, yes the graphics suck but at least they got a little better and the gameplay is fun if Tiger can pull that off it should be a good game... i wish 2k would drop more games for the wii
A challenge but very fun.
I scored a +38 on my first round in this game, but I had a lot of fun doing it. The graphics are good and the controls are great. The game was diffficult at first but once you get the hang of it you'll be winning tournaments with some ease. A great game!
This is the worst..................
We have had other golf games and this is by far the worst we have had. The printing is to small to read, it actually swings before you are ready, the directions are not clear at all, nothing is accurate at all, the power of percentage in also incorrect, on occasions it goes farther or shorter than you hit the ball, which is very discouraging for my kids. It also has the other golfers throwing the club, or throwing themselves on the ground and I find that inappropiate for my kids to see that kind of behavior from a professional golfer. I would not recommed this product to anyone. I am so surprised that there is pretty much nothing accurate in this game. I don't know if the other Tiger Woods game are the same, but I would beware... I can't believe Tiger Woods put his name on this game.........
Tiger Keeps on Going
I can't wait! If this is any better than 07 (if possible), I would play it all the time! I wonder if it'll be the same difficulty or more challenging. I got 2 birdies in a row, but that is as far as I go, I guess I am not exactly a pro. Oh well...
Best Golf Game Ever
This game is the best golf game ever! I originally didn't like this game on other systems, because the contralls were to confusing. But with the Wii, It is the easiest game to figure out. I love playing this game like I would a real round of golf. The courses look life like and the weather is as real as it gets. This isn't a video game, this is a simulation. I play this game on a daily basis. I just can't enough of it. Easy to learn for a beginner, and fun for experenced gamers. I would recomend this game to anybody who plays or just enjoys golf, but doesn't want to face the elements that day. I can't wait till I can get ahold of the 09 version and compare these games back to back. If you love the Wii, and you want a life like game to play, this game is for you.
but will it be flawless
the last tigerwoods pga tour game was only good if you played with mulligans. if ea took theyre time on this game we may have one of the first wii games rated over 8 in gameinformer. Im almost thinking that its going to take another year for the swing problem to be fixed because i would have thought it would have taken ea a little more than 4 months to make somewhat of a good game, not to mention for the wii.
07 was great.....
I really liked the tiger woods 2007, and hope i can pick this one up also. I am a golfer and find this to be a great way to get in a game when it's raining. It's also nice to not wait on the group in front of you on the real course. Overall, 2007 is the one game that i really play a lot. I cant wait to see the new courses in 2008!
It Was Fun, Bad Control
I thought the game was a lot of fun. I can't wait until 08. I just hope the controls aren't as sensitive. I was easy to turn your hand and create a slice. If you didn't want a full swing it was really hard to keep from swinging 100 to 110%. The phantom swing seemed to kill my pars pretty easily.
I bought 07 and enjoyed it but I really thought it had horrible swing flaws. If this game doesn't fix those problems and make a better putting simulation, then i'm definitely not getting this game. I was dissapointed with the last game, but this one could make it so much better!
