Summary: This is a terrible game. First during the extra long load times between holes they play this sleep inducing music, then you get to hear Jim Nantz in his fake homespun insipidness. The game play is average except for putting which is completely unrealistic and gets frustrating. Caddy feature is a worthless gimmick that adds nothing to the game. Beyond all of the above this game is boring. It is really uninspiring and dull.
Summary: Dont buy this game. You have to download everything and also, you have to pay for some of the things. I never got to play the masters because I needed to download something and I couldnt, and then they wanted me to pay for something I thought I had already purchased. Im disappointed at Sony and the Game developer for this issues, basically you dont get what you think you are getting. They make you over pay and thats just not fair.
Summary: Note this is not my first Tiger Woods program, I have had several versions, was addicted to them all, had to give up on Tiger Woods 2008 when it crashed and would no longer load. I gave up for a couple of years, but took a chance and bought 2012. Have a had a great time playing online, met some pretty cool people and then some, that lets say were not. Same as at the course. All that aside, while hot into a game, playing on a pc with a mouse.
Summary: This is absoluely the last time I will order games or accessories for our Playstation 3 over the internet. My husband was so excited about this gift and couldn't wait to set it up and start playing. Everything seemed fine until he started to play and discovered that the controller didn't work. The start button doesn't work and he can't play. As a result, he can't use the golf club, either.
Summary: (Review of PS3 version)I've been playing Tiger for years and this will be my last version. The putting in this version is a joke. Previous reviewers have been spot on with the inaccuracies of the reads,target spot, and needed power when putting. Half the time the physics are wrong when it requires you to lag on an uphill putt. I also don't like that you can't go back and play previous tournaments once you have completed them.
Summary: I bought this in an attempt to get a better game playing experience compared to Tiger Woods online. In fact, that was the main reason I purchased the whole PS3 package. Unfortunately, I never could get the Move controller to work. It would not maintain contact with the PS eye. I spent over ten hours during the course of two weeks trying different positions for the camera, standing back different distances, using all the online and printed instructions trouble shooting...
Summary: What a scam job EA SPORTS has pulled in producing this game. The game itself seemed relatively cheap to buy. But, the caviat is that you also have to purchase golf courses individually. They have a wide assortment of 19 courses to purchase. They aren't cheap. $4 and up. You could spend well over $200 for this game. SUCKER?? Not me!
Required downloads drive the cost to over 3x original retail! (Now unplayable!)

Summary: (This was titled: reviews are being deleted! how long will this one survive?.... But since Amazon hasn't deleted it yet, I'll start editing for valuable content below. It is quite disconcerting to discover that reviews are just vanishing from here. :-/ Amazon? Please explain. If I am satisfied with the explanation I shall submit more info here, but I'm not going to waste a lot of my time if amazon.com is just going to trash my work.
Summary: If you pre-ordered this game it was supposed to come with an exclusive putter. It has been a week since release, and guess what? STILL NO PUTTER!!!!! A 5$ credit DOES NOT make up for this! After playing the game for a week the putter would be USELESS!!! The entire for reason for having the putter is to max your putting skill FROM THE BEGINNING! I would not reccommend pre-ordering any video games from Amazon.com.
