Excerpt: Before starting this review, let me make one thing clear: I’m not a golfer . I’ve played miniature golf a handful of times over the years, and I even played a single round of real golf once when I was a kid, but that’s pretty much it. Who knows, maybe I’ll take it up someday when I have the time and money. For now, the fact remains that I’m not the best person to judge the accuracy of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 .
Conclusion: Many will argue whether Tiger Woods 08 can be considered a video game. The intricate and well rounded game mechanics manifest what the Nintendo Wii can do. It shows the potential Wii has for pushing the games closer to real life sports and experiences. All EA Sports has left to do is take the time to put in all features the other consoles are equipped with. If you are looking for a more in-depth experience than that in Wii Sports, Tiger Woods 08 is for you.
Summary: Parents need to know that this golf game comes out every year, but the '08 version offers many new features that make it worth considering, including the ability to add photos of yourself to create a golfer that looks like you. While the game is rated "Everyone," it has an online component, which Common Sense Media doesn't recommend for kids under 12.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Another (slight) improvement on last year's version, Tiger 08 should be on your Christmas shopping list if you have a new console to play it on. For those who do have last year's edition this is best avoided.
Excerpt: Golf that is not boring. Who thought that was possible? Not me. EA Tiburn proves me wrong in the first Tiger Woods outing that I have played since 2003. While it still looks like it could run on a last-gen console (and they are still making the game for PS2), Tiger Woods is the best looking and playing that it has ever been.
Excerpt: When Tiger Woods 07 launched earlier out of sync with its other console counterparts, it was a bit strange and the game had that \”its an early game, it’ll be better next year” type stigma attached to it. Tiger 07 was by no means a bad game it just had a few problems, looked very plain, lacked online and we are sad to report that Tiger 08 is pretty much the same.
Conclusion: . There is a lot of variations of play
that will keep fans of the sport busy for quite some time, and swinging
the Wii Remote around is a lot of fun and adds an additional dimension
to the game that the 360 and PS3 versions won�t have. While the graphics
could stand to be updated, they aren�t so bad as to cause the game�s overall
rating to drop.
