Summary: Putting is odd, eg, if the ball is three inches from cup, better place your pointer to be 2 feet past. Earlier editions had chipping and pitching options. Other minor gripes, not much improvements over earlier versions. If it's your first, you should like it, but the franchise is tired.
Summary: Tiger Woods '13 is a solid golf game and an nice update to the '11 version I previously owned. The putting is more challenging and takes some getting used to, but it is a welcome change to the previous iteration. Driving and spin have also changed from '11 but the changes are small.
Better than TW 2010, but support from EA Sports is bad

Summary: I upgraded from TW 2010 and find the game play more accurate to real golf (I'm about a 10 HCP). And it's nice to get Augusta on the game. Controls are similar to previous TW games and I find the putting more accurate than TW 2010. Graphics are OK. Not super, but just fine.
Summary: the old tiger woods was great but this new is only about money, you have to purchase every course if you want to play on line and that is where they get you. it's all about the money not the game or even enjoying it.
Slow to load between each hole played...and you are forced to buy into new courses to play them.

Summary: The game is entertaining and the graphics are great, but it takes about 15-20 seconds between each hole that you play for the next hole to load which makes the game drag on. This game also forces you to subscribe to play certain courses on the game.
Summary: I actually liked the Tiger Woods 2012 version better. The re-creation of Tiger's track to the pro circuit is a nice addition. The animations didn't really change from 2012 to 2013 version. A mild disappointment.
