Summary: This iteration of Tiger Woods golf has many positives, including the beauty of the courses, the relative ease to pick up and play for those who may not have played this series before, the new caddy feature, and all of the different ways you can customize your golfer. Over the past few weeks I have played my way through amateur tournaments and Q-School en route to making the cut for the PGA Tour.
Summary: What ever happened to good video games? Its like once these franchises become successful, they eventually start releasing untested, buggy, and overall crappy games just so they can rake in their next round of funding to rinse and repeat.
Summary: This was a change of pace for the swing tactics and gameplay, and I was not really happy with it. Overall, this was a decent version of TW, but there have been many better ones in the past. Taking away the challenges and other styles of gameplay made the game much more one dimensional and took out that extra layer of fun. The pro shop was different, and the stats were made easy to upgrade. Felt more kid oriented than ever.
Summary: I was a huge fan of the tiger woods franchise. Tiger woods 2001 I played for ages on my Playstation 2. This one just isnt the same. I dont enjoy the move controller and the fact that my swings get constantly interrupted if you arent perfectly positioned in front of the camera. If the club goes behind my head, it interrupts my swing... not a fan anymore...
Hang fire if you're looking at this for the PS Move

Summary: So I've never been a massive golf fan, purely because walking around 18 holes in the rain is bad enough - sitting on the sofa flicking the controller is just as bad. I was keen then to try out the Tiger Woods offering with the PS Move functionality (so at least I dont have to walk out of my house). In all honestly this isn't a very bad game - the courses are varied (but limited once you complete them all without buying more for $$$).
Summary: I purchased this as a starter pack. For that its great. Anything more then $50 for this set isn't worth it. I recommend watching deal sites and waiting for the $49.99 specials The good - "The Bundle" Webcam Controller Game The bad - Game - You will spend as much time loading as you will golfing. The game itself is somewhat entertaining. I didn't find it very challenging and you can easily manipulate your shots to do what you want them to do.
works but feels like an after thought more than a product.

Summary: Taking the move out of the box gave me mixed emotions as soon as I started hooking up the equipment. As most ps3 slim owners know there is only 2 usb ports and they are both in the front. The move/eye camera requires one of these usb ports and is kind of messy with the wire coming around the back. But regardless you get it hooked up and I first notice I can navigate the XMB menu with the move controller!
Summary: This is golf, right? So, why is it that EA tries to reinvent the wheel every year? You are programming a game with only one player on the screen, not 22, or 10. JUST ONE! I can't imagine a golf game being as hard to program as say Madden or NBA Live. I have seen some comments on here about the graphics not being up to par. I bought TW 11, and I think the graphics are one of the best aspects of this years title.
