Summary: The graphics are admittedly very good as expected. However, the gameplay is downright awful! I've owned versions for the past three years on ps2, snd liked them all, but the new one for ps3 is so unplayable. I don't like the play set-up and the controls are too difficult! I was besting all of tiger's top scores in '06, and now i'm lucky to four putt! And, I can't advance past anyone because I can't even get a drive in the fairway.
Summary: This game was rushed. I've played every version since 04, and this one is the first that didn't improve from the previous version. Pros: 1. Improved graphics 2. Improved sound 3. Improved Tiger WOods CHallenge Cons: 1. Slowdown, inconsistent frame rate 2. Controls are horrible unless you are on the easiest difficulty setting 3. Commentary has nearly the same dialogue as 06 and 07. Here's hoping TW09 isn't rushed, too.
Conclusion: Ive been a big fan of the pga series since the beginning so i was really dissapointed after i bought this as one of my first games on the ps3. Graphicly theres hardly any difference to the ps2 releases and its further let down by being no where near as playable. This makes for frustrating gameplay and you begin to miss what made the previous releases made so much fun. Needless to say i sold this game on. Ive just played pga 2009 and its brilliant!
