Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf 08
More Simulation Value in 2008?
I'm cautiously optimistic about Tiger Woods 2008 for the 360. The new developer (Tiburon) may not be able to change much about the 07 version in the transition. The game definitely needs more simulation options, but the glossy previews thus far have focused on new key cosmetic features. The multi-range putter system used thus far is a counter-intuitive interface mechanism. I doubt it will be dropped or another option offered this year. Where the game needs big help is in the intertialess swing interface. The interface feels "dead" because the animations can stop and start on a dime. There also needs to be some shot rewards for tempo. The 06 and 07 versions allow you to get away with some rather unrealistic tempos. GamerNet may be the distinguishing factor for this year. The 07 version was highly limited in its online competitive options. Here's hoping that GamerNet will be versitile enough to facilitate multi-round competitions.
Not bad but not great
This game is good especially after the last couple of games in the Tiger Woods series were not that great. The Graphics are amazing, the challenge is good, but some things that were in the 04 and 05 versions of the games (the best ones in my opinion) like the hilarious celebrations and there were no sponsors in this one unless my game is just glitched. Overall its a great game if your into golf games. I would reccomend buying it if you don't want to spend alot of money on the newest one, this game is just as good. The coop is good and fun to play. The Tiger challenge is real fun and challeneging. Some times the camera angle can get a little messed up if your like right in front of a tree or something then you cant see real well. But its a fun game to play.
In 2005 I decided too stop buying EA sports games every year.Now I buy them every other year.My brother let me borrow 07 and it was a bit dissapointing.I preordered a coppy of 08 and am anxiously waiting too get my hands on it.Everything I've seen and heard tells me this will be the best Woods game too date.I really cant wait. Just a suggestion,don't buy these games every year.They dont change that much from year too year.If your like me you generally have quite a few games anyhow.Having so many makes it hard too get through a season before the next one comes out.Besides they have the ability too update these games via xbox live anyhow lets force them too do that so that we may save a little money.
The reviewer who mentioned playing in 1080p is out of his mind, since it was impossible to play that game in full HD since it wasnt created in that high of a res. but he may have played it on a 1080p tv which is the same exact graphics you would see from 720p or 1080i since you cant exceed maximum specs. 08 needs to add some more realism and subtract the remdoms. randoms such as the EA game cheats where something always goes wrong every course causeing the computer to cathc up no matter how far behind they were, or terrible graphics errors where the ball goes flying when your still in your backswing. fix the graphics errors and add game AI and not the EA edge as i like to call it
HARD HARD HARD!!!!!!
it is a very hard game of corse you could always get max out golfer a dlc tha makes your player a legend on the spot but the controlls are weak and hard the thumb stick needs to be perfectly striaght or you will shank and slice the ball every hit. dont get it unless you are a hard core gamer):
Tiger Woods '08
From reading some of the reviews everyone seems to be agreeing that it needs to be more exciting. Well what I think for the future Woods games is maybe they should have it go up to 4 players. I dont know if this game does go to 4 players cause i havent played, but the ones i have played go to 2. I think they should have you be able to create your own player,then have you get a sponsor,create your own courses maybe even be able to make your own Country Club, personally i think having stuff like that makes a game more exciting. I think if your making a new sports game you have to add new things that people wont be expecting.
I could only hope....
That EA will get the online server to work correct. I love this Game and have played it since 2002. Honestly the game is only fun online. I love the competition, but the ranking system isnt working correct and hasnt since 2005 when the competition was cut throat. The online sever for 2006 and 2007 are the same and neither year did it work. The daily tournaments quit working with in a month of the release. The game is boring offline its to easy. I know lots of online players agree with me on this and hopefully EA gets it right this year. I am excited and nervous to find out,
What can they do to make this game better besides add more courses. The online play is great and for off line they all get boring. I play online 3 to 5 nights a week and its fun to play people from all over the world. As for off line what possibly could you do. you made putting harder so i cant shoot 38 for 18 holes anymore ('05) you did take a few equipment sponsors away ( BOO) what else is there. it's a golf game. thanks for releasing it before november.
Tiger Woods '08
I think that this game is going to be great. There may not be many changes from '07 but i think '07 was an awesome game. I noticed that the graphics in each Tiger Woods game, there is a slight difference, it may not seem like it but i have noticed slight difference. I really want to get this game I personally have not played it yet. But i also wanted to bring up how come there arent LPGA games? I think they should definately make LPGA tour games.
Will Be Better
Not sure if you guys read but a whole new studio is going to do this version of Tiger Woods. I agree 07' seemed very rushed, the net code was terrible and the graphics could have run on my regular xbox, but they redid the whole engine for 08. In fact if you have a camera for the 360 it will plot your face and put you into the game as a character. I think they are taking more time on this one to bring the series back to what it once was.
