Summary: Wow! Worst electronic golf experience yet! This is not a golf sim by any stretch. It's just a game. If you want to learn how to play strictly "09" this is your ticket if you can find it in a $10 bargain bin. If your looking for even a remotely real golfing experience it isn't here. Such a waste of time and money on EA's part. They came up with gorgeous and very realistic courses and mini" games, then they made it unplayable. At best, horribly un-enjoyable.
Summary: I originally purchased "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09: All Play" for the Wii because I enjoyed the "Wii Sports" golf game, and I wanted a game where I could play more courses. I was disappointed by the manual, since it was only about four (tiny) pages long, and it didn't cover 99% of the features of the game. The in-game help is not much better, leaving the user to figure out the vast majority of the game through trial and error (and sometimes serendipity).
Summary: While the game overall is still fun, Tiger Woods '09 is definitely worse that the '08 version. I have no idea how you could take a perfectly good 2008 version and screw it up so badly. Putting has been completely ruined. Instead of having a single putter, there are at least 5 or more (haven't gotten to them all).
Summary: This is my first Wii experience with TW, but I've been a fan of the PC version for many years. I must say I'm disappointed with the Wii translation, as it lacks any sense of feel I had expected to have with the Wii Remote. As mentioned many times, the putting is so silly it pretty much ruined the overall game for me. Woods and long irons are too easy to hit, even in advanced mode, but chipping and putting are just too difficult.
Summary: I played the TW 08 Wii and became very good at the easy and medium modes. Looking at the 09 game, I was drawn to the potential to play online against other virtual players around the world. So I bought it. Problems: There's no way to take your accomplishments in the 08 game and export them into the 09 game. That would have been a big help. I had to set up a new character which didn't look at all like my 08 character which everyone said looked exactly like me.
Summary: I purchased TWG '09 expecting improvements over TWG '08. What a disappointment. Putting, in particular, has lost its feel. Even after giving this a fair chance, I'm more convinced than ever that they got it right with version '08. '09 doesn't cut-it. I'm going back.
Summary: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 is a game that an avid golfer on a real golf course would share few experiences.While the graphics are good and the courses available are fun to play,the overall experience is disappointing.The single largest flaw in this game is the putting.This single element takes all the good points of this game away.Where as most players at any level will putt 40% of the time,this takes all the pleasure from the 60% of effort it took to be in a position to...
Summary: TW 09 on the Wii could be a phenomenal game without too much work. In it's current form, it's almost unplayable. I'll spare the good points, all the other reviewers hit on that pretty well. And I'm not jaded by the putting changes between 08 and 09--09 is my first golf game for an avid golfer for the past 15 years. The problem with this game is the short game. In real golf, the short game--50 yds from the pin and in--is AT LEAST 50% of game.
Summary: Bought this game without really seeing it first and wish I hadn't. It just isn't as much fun as anticipated. Too hard to guage the ball distance, can't really control it. Playstation2 golf games more entertaining in my opinion.
Summary: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play Wow. This game could be great, but the putting alone just takes so much fun away from this game. Do the designers get lazy? Who knows. It's just hard to think such a major issue could get past them like this.
