I, like everyone else that has bought and played ever TW game from the beginning will fork out the cash for this one yet again. Every single TW game has been better than the last with an exception to the TW '08 which was a horrible game playing experience all the way around. I owned a copy of the TW '08 for 2 weeks before i couldn't stomach anymore and had to trade in. That "GIANT" flop of a game is actually making me anxious to get my hands on the next TW more than any of the other though. I think since the title came out it was given nothing but praise and i think that gets developers thinking gamers will pretty much "eat up" whatever TW experience they want to feed us. But seeing how the last one was knocked so hard i think they're gonna be forced to take the criticism into consideration and we will get to see a real next generation TW to go with next generation consoles. Should be awesome.
Rated 10 out of 10 by crushers9000 BEST GOLF GAME EVER!!!
This game is the best game ever the grafics are the best in the world the first thing you would recinize is that you get to create your very own golfer after you create you golfer tiger woods coach hank hany will coach you through out your carrer.The commetrey is good but not the best it sounds like there talking in their sleep but other then that the commentrey is good they rarly talk but when they do you will recinize that they have a girl commentater.The face animation is great they look so real its like your at a golf tournament its great the faces look real everything is real.The thing that i like the most is that you can choose to draw or fade this could help you and the club tuner mode were you could tune your clubs so there were you like them i would totaly recemend this game for you to buy.

Tiger Woods 09 is such a sick game. Not only are the graphics amazing, but the gameplay is outstanding with so many courses to pick from. Being able to create your own character, and have your own golf career is really fun also. 360 really makes the game awesome, and especially with Tiger Woods. Gameplay is challenging yet fun at the same time. I like the way you can shape your shots and put spin on the ball when it is approaching the greens. Not only this, but the club tuner really makes it so you can manipulate your equipment to fit your game best, or to prepare for a certain course you are going to play soon. Also, Hank Haney is your coach and guides you through the game so that you can learn every aspect of shooting low scores. This is a great game that everyone should go out and buy!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Little zack Great game
I always loved playing golf games, but I never did own one. I thought that I should get the new 09 version of "tiger woods PGA tour" because I saw in gaming magazines that this game was one of the better games in the franchise, the store clerk said the same as well. I have to agree. The controls are amazing. The way you swing at the ball is very realistic, because you have to make sure you point the analog stic straight in order for it to go in the desired direction. Characters are good, there is a mix of men and women golfers. Camera angle is very good, you can choose from normal view, close in view, or elevated view. The only bad thing was that the tutorials are video's. You don't actually play it out. But that was the only flaw. I give this game my recommendation.
Rated 0 out of 10 by willha23 This could be a fun and challenging game!
Well, I have played some Tiger Woods games previously, like 08, and I think this has a lot of potential to be a really good golf game. Besides the venues, (which I think are quick challenging), I respond to the last post by saying that they could add a couple more venues to really spice it up a bit to make it even more challenging! But other than that little issue (which I personally think is quite minor), I'm quite interested in the whole new caddy mode (from what I heard in one of thier videos), where you can customize various options to your liking! The graphics seem great and the gameply looks even more challenging than this years game, and well, overall I think its an all-around fun and challenging game!

One thing I have always disagreed with when it comes to Tiger games is the putting. All you ever had to do was hit the putt the right speed and use the break which is displayed for you to make putts. Now you can hit putts off center which happens all the time in real golf. Putting is the most difficult part of actual golf therefore it should be difficult in Tiger if they are going for authenticity. I like the addition of the Hany thing too. Before your stats never really decreased making the playibility brutal. Now every round you have changes your abilities for better or worse. I think Tiger gets better every year and this years looks really good.

I as many of you have downloaded and played the demo on the 360, and the game seems the same as last year. Some new courses freshen the title up, but there is one big omission. David Feherty is not in the booth! Personally I think he makes many broadcasts (real or fictional) colorful. The Haney thing with working on the swing and customizing clubs is just a waste of time imo. I would rather see some Ryder and President Cup areas created. Who wants to spend time working on your virtual swing? I spend enough time working on my real life swing. I'll end up renting before I buy. I'd love some feedback from others on this years title.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Golf Addict Tiger Woods getting old but his games aren't
I love the Tiger Woods series. What really got me hooked on the series was Tiger Woods 2005. It was arguably the greatest Tiger Woods game of all time. It seems it gets harder every year. For example on Tiger Woods 2006 I averaged about 22 under par at just about any course from any tees and pin locations, but on 08 my career low round is just 15 under par. This game looks amazing. Hopefully it will get a lot of video game addicts hooked enough to go play out on the links. Like many people I am completely addicted to golf. This may just be the best Tiger Woods hit of all time.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Kal El Add more venues
I think the Tiger Woods franchise of games would shoo through the roof if they would just call all the majors by their real names, EA has the capabilities to do this, and actually put them in their real environments. TPC was the only venue called by its name only because they couldn't avoid it. The FedEx cup was a joke, and I would like to see the Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup, Online play would be awesome in that aspect. Even the WGC Accenture matchplay and all the WGC events. BRING 'EM ON!!!

I have to agree with Rob B. with his review of the demo. I am upset with the new "commentator" who sounds like a computer. The club modifier is fun for about 5 minutes but then quickly gets old, I hope with the full game that will be more in depth, but I doubt it. The graphics have gotten better, but that is to be expected now. As far as the game so far, its decent, but not too much of an improvement, or change since last year. I'm still playing TW 08 and completely happy with that, so I think I will rent this first.
