Summary: TGW did a disservice by releasing this game. I have not bought a TGW since because they ruined a good thing, 2004 was good, 2005 was better and 2006 was supposed to be great, NOT. I put it on ebay in a week. Got all my money back ,sorry to the person who bought it..They put a shape stick in this version and its horrible and not needed. The game play totally sucks. Listen to me, I am an expert TGW player and I beat everyone I play on line. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.
Tiger Woods, ...what happened? The worst game ever

Summary: I would like to start by saying that I have all of the Tiger Woods golf games that exist for the PS2. However, I would like to give this one back. I really have no idea why EA felt they needed to completely overhaul the game. Tiger Woods 05 was outstanding! It could have used a few extras like more customization of the create a course option. Something like adding your own waterways, sand traps, etc.
Summary: I just picked this game up because someone ordered it and never picked it up. I have to say, as a fan of 2001-2005 I am HIGHLY disappointed with this release!!! They changed everything that made the old games fun!! The graphics suck massive ass, they changed up the swing mechanics, and the "customize your own character" feature sucks as well. I have never in my life put in a game and want to throw it away after 5 minutes of playing it.
Summary: I owned Tiger Woods 2006 for a grand total of three hours. It only took me ten minutes to figure out that the player graphics had regressed back to Gumby dolls. No muscle definition and the heads are way too small for the body. I was shocked and disgusted by the whole thing, sort of like after watching really dirty porn, you feel somehow damaged for life. If you are a fan of the Tiger Woods series don't waste your money, you will be thoroughly disappointed.
Summary: I was so excited to purchase Tiger Woods 2006 when it came out. Little did I know, I recieved it as a birthday gift. I said to the gift-giver, "aww, you didnt have to that!" WOW was I right! I had the most dissapointed feeling after the first few minutes playing, than I had ever had over a video game. This game IS a last ditch effort to make money. Corners were cut, no doubt.
Summary: I had a warm and fuzzy place in my heart for EA, as much as one can feel that way for a corporate entity. They'd always produced such a high-quality product in this series. Now, it seems, they've decided to just take the money and run. I may be naive, but how can they face their loyal customers after pulling a slimy stunt like this? Who approved alienating their long-time customers for a quick, and smaller, profit.
Summary: I have been a major fan of all the EA Sports PS2 Tiger Woods golf games- until now. What the hell is going on! I can describe this new incarnation for the 2006 season very easily, crap, crap, CRAP!!! I should have listened to other reviews that supported my opinion before I wasted $50.00 for this, but like many of you I want to see things for myself, so I bought it. My biggest complaint was in the degredation of the graphics. Last years 2005 version was great.
Summary: If you want this game for online play, forget it. It is basically unplayable online. Among many other flaws, the main problem is a long screen lag that makes timing the swing impossible. Swing timing is absolutely crucial to gameplay. Offline, the game is alright. Always a great golf series, the game continues to evolve, improving with each version. Yet, it is still peppered with annoying program errors and glitches. The final product lacks polish.
Summary: I am in shock at how bad this game is. I have loved every Tiger game to come out in past years. The graphics got worse, the game play is pathetic, and the menus are just not user friendly. The new dual control only makes things frustrating. The new voice addition to your player is almost as annoying as listening to Michael Moore. This game sucks!
