Summary: It plays a little glitchy. The simple driving range that comes with WII Fit let's me draw the ball. The recommendation here is to hit the left cross button and shake the remote in order to cause a draw. I've always played to a natural draw and I am not going to press buttons and shake the remote. I've quit using it.
Summary: Got this for a Christmas present for my father who absolutely loves the golf game on Wii Sports. He plays it every single evening when he gets home from work. Unfortunately, it's the simplicity of the game that works and TW doesn't have it. I'm sure this is great for seasoned golf vets, but it doesn't have the simplicity factor of Wii Sports and he doesn't enjoy playing it. Therefore, I can't score it any higher.
Summary: I'm going to keep this short but I also wanted to bring up an issue I'm having and am wondering if anyone else is having the same issue. I'm an avid golfer and also a casual video game player. I've played many iterations of PC/Console golf games since the early 90's. This game is hooked up to my 52" LCD via component and home theater system and it looks and sounds great.
Summary: I own both the 07 and 08 version of this game and really.... what's the difference? I can spin the ball now - whoopy. Seriously, I'm not thrilled I spent another 50 bucks for a game that is no different than the earlier version. I don't know what some of these other reviewers are thinking but the graphics are THE SAME. Not that I mind the graphics, but there is no difference between appearance in 07 and 08.
Conclusion: I've had this game for a few months now and I wasn't that happy with it to begin with. Being a huge golf fan & player myself I was really excited when I bought it. But the swing control with the Wii is tacky, the spin of the ball when its in the air isn't the best, graphics are exactly the same as Tiger Woods 07, the Pro Shop is also the same as Tiger Woods 07 and you have no control of the power boost. I recommend getting this on the PS3, It's much much much better!!!
Summary: This game has both great weaknesses and strengths. On the plus side, it plays VERY well when taking your shot, even when using draw or fade (you can twist the remote to the left or right for this). It actually feels better than Wii Sports Golf. There are also loads of courses to choose from etc. However there is a downside. The menu system for a start is VERY poorly implemented.
