Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13
better looking, not better playing
i have a few problems after playing it for a few days, (1) they changed all the meters putting, swinging there is no more % n concentrate on the swing more so that i like not that the putting meter is hard to see or get right ... (2) why do u have to pay for courses that are on the disk? ither u have to pay outright or earn coins to play rounds n if by some miricle u get gold on the course u get unlimited play, the issue with that is its 6000 coins per rd and gonna take a good player at lease 5 rounds to complete gold ... you dont get coins fast enough n Courss like Walile that were normal courses the last few years you now have to pay for ... i personally will not get any of the new courses simply because more then half are on the disk n will never pay twice for what on the disk ... EVER
HOLE IN ONE
tiger woods pga tour 13 is a good game. the graphics are great, but sometimes when you tee off on a par 3 and its show the scuff marks they glitch a little. the game take a little getting use to when i 1st played it i was pretty horrible. if you have trouble putting on the green then you can have it show you were the ball will break and how far to put it over wich is a big help. the life of tiger is really boring, what would be fun about hitting golf balls into a pool nothing i tried it didnt like it and left it alone. making your own golfer is fun and working threw the challenges to get to the pga is fun if you like golf games you might want to get this it takes a little getting use to but is fun when you get the hang of it
I am true hardcore Tiger Woods player since the PS2 days. This is one of EA's biggest disgraces. You can tell the game was built for Kinect and they didnt care for anyone using a controller. Putting is almost IMPOSSIBLE there is no way to correctly putt the ball. Also, what happened to the commentary? Very little commentary from anyone. Plus a ton of bugs just check the EA forums and youll see all the bugs that exist in this game
You only get 7 stock courses, rest is DLC
In the create a career mode, you must skip probably 2 of every 3 matches because you don't have the course!! Then why is it there? What is the point in charging $60 when you get 1/3 of the game. The courses that are actually on the course are not included.
This is a classic case of EA robbing it's fans by buying out the rest of the competition and giving you half of a game and making you buy the rest. From now on, I will seek all other means necessary to get my gaming to ensure I will never purchase from these guys again. Disgusting way to run a business.
Best Game Yet
Even thought I'm a huge fan of the series, i haven't played one since 09. I love the significant changes they've made. I've been waiting a long time for them to change the graphics, and they finally did. The gameplay is smooth and relaxing. The selection of courses is huge. You can still do the game face and play the career. Also they have this new thing where you can relive the best moments in Tiger's career. However, they could have a few more golfers, thought I think they have plenty for most people. They changed the swinging a little bit, but when you think about it, all that's new is the swing line. What I DON'T like is putting, they took away the efficient meter, and replaced it with this small, hard, and fast meter on the ground, you have to take your backswing on a putt real slow cuz of this. Other than that, this game is amazing and I love it a lot. I recommend to all golf fanatics.
At first when i got this i thought it was great. I started a career with a golfer and wasted countless hours on the game face which has many flaws then started playing the actual career. The amateur tournaments at the beginning are a joke then when you get to the masters its like impossible. The wind after the 2nd round makes no sense and goes up to 30 MPH. When it is less it is usually affected more so it is almost impossible to guess where to aim. If thats not a problem enough half of the time when you hit a bad shot it will kick you out into some crazy location which makes no sense and gets annoying. The commentary is practically 0 which is also annoying and the kinect is a joke. it doesnt read half the time no matter where you stand and always hits a perfect shot no matter how poorly executed and half the time goes to a place you dont want. it has great online but that is about it.
Shanked this one!
So I bought this game in hopes that I could log on when I get home and play with my buddies. Well that is partially true, but you have to earn coins to unlock more courses. Not that I dont mind that, I just dont have time to do all that stuff. I just want to log in and play a bit with my friends on a course of our choice. Theres only a few courses unlocked at the beginning. I could see unlocking them in single player only, but when you have to unlock online features that crosses the line. Thats all I like to do is play online. Not a big single player fan. Anyway, one last complaint. I do not like the putting. There is no measure of how hard to hit a long putt versus a short putt. The meter is the same. There should be some sort of way to measure how hard you putt the ball, not just pull back the stick. Oh well.. I bought it and sold it all in 24 hours time I was so unhappy with it.
Grade B+: The game is Good, but it be Freezing
The game is great, the only problem is that it's a 50/50 chance that the game will Freeze on you...I called EA sports and they said "They have been getting calls almost every day about Tiger Woods PGA 13 freezing on people."
This years Tiger is a step backwards, the Kinect feature is annoying when you dont want to use it, because every screen it asks you if you want to play with that instead of the controller. The Putting is horrendous, i played in awful weather my first three events, too many screens to go through just to get to a career game. I wish i hadnt traded my last years tiger in.
They have changed the game into a more realistic golfers game. Players have to somewhat understand how to play golf in real life in order to be successful at this game. This is why some people are giving it negative reviews.
