Excerpt: In the PGA this year, Tiger Woods has been absolutely dominating, winning event after event. He’s clearly proving to everybody around that there’s no question as to who the best golfer on the planet is while the rest of the PGA field vainly chases his tail. Electronic Arts’ Tiger Wood PGA Tour franchise also has proved to be a dominant force, without a doubt the best golf game around, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 on the Xbox and PS2 once again reinforces that.
Conclusion: With a good variety of courses to play on, modes to play through, and gameplay elements to tinker with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 is one of the best of its kind. There is so much to do here that it can be a little intimidating at first but seasoned veterans will have no problems jumping right in. If you're looking for a golf game to play as the weather gets colder then this one will keep you occupied right up until the spring.
Excerpt: I’ve been golfing for the better part of the last 20 years. I stop short of calling myself a golfer, because what I do on the links is an insult to those who do. I’m a duffer; a hacker at best. My rounds are usually comprised of one or two good shots surrounded by 100-plus bad ones. Not much style, very little technique, and a whole lot of colorful language.
Excerpt: Tiger's latest game for all current-gen systems is, as you are probably expecting, remarkably similar to last year's effort. In fact, the developers at EA seem to have got to the stage where they can only make the game feel new, by removing perfectly good game modes and replacing them with new ones - for better or worse.
Excerpt: Well, I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later - I finally reviewed a golf game. Back in the day (a.k.a “the mid 90s”) I recall playing Pebble Beach Golf for the Genesis, and was absolutely floored by the high-res, photo realistic sprites before me, especially the spectacular views of the nearby ocean. Fast forward several years, and after dabbling a bit with Hot Shots Golf for the original PS, I now find myself with this project before me.
Conclusion: For me, the hour – an hour and a half learning curve for each 1.6 and 2L cars was really frustrating, but the eye candy and speed got me coming back for more. The casual gamer will need patience and maybe the harcore gamer will too, but the V-Rally fan will probably be chuffed to bits with what they have done with it for its third outing. So, not bad really, but its still got slowdown!
