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: Tiger Woods 2009 is the "New Coke" of video games. With version 2008, they had one of the best games for Wii with an intuitive putting system that adequately rewarded good play and penalized poor play. The 2009 upgrade should have corrected the chip/pitch quirks in 2008 and added better graphics. Instead, they decided to revamp the putting system which had been one of the best parts of the 2008 version and, in so doing, they made the game unplayable.
Putting has gotten worse, McCord and Feherty are gone

Summary: The Good There's finally online multiplayer and it works really well. The simultaneous shot mode present in online play is a great idea that allows up to four people to play 18 holes in a reasonable amount of time without being forced to watch everyone else's shots. The party game mode is fun to play with other people who don't have the patience for a full round and the new All-Play swing system lets beginners pick up the game pretty easily.
Summary: I bought this game anticipating it was going to be better than, or at least as good as the little freebie that comes with the Wii. BOY.....was I wrong!! Hitting the ball is easy when you're Teeing off or on the fairway but putting is INCREDIBLY difficult.....in fact most times I managed to hit it more than 3 inches were by accident....and an accident I could NOT replicate...despite MANY MANY online guides trying to "instruct" me on the finer points of putting in TW 09.
Excerpt: I bought the Tiger Woods 'All Play' Golf game at the same time as a Wii console as I had a £10 off voucher for any game. The game can be obtained for around £16 on its own nowadays as the latest version of the game has just been released. I thought I would probably get tired of the Wii Sports game that comes free with the console quite quickly and want something more realistic and challenging.
Summary: This is a dreadful game! You have to swing at 100% to put a few yards grrr. The gameface option is pretty good tho you can get a player that looks a lot like yourself. I woud skip this and go for 07, 08 or 10 they are much better. The motion plus with 10 is great. Give 09 a big thumbs down DON'T BUY IT!
Summary: I am not somebody who plays golf but I do know that when you are on the green you don't have to swing your putter like a 3 iron to putt the ball. However on this you do it is so silly I can't beleive Tiger Woods has allowed his name to be put on this game. This really ruins the game if you are a serious golfer I would stay clear because it's not how you play golf not unless you are on Great Yarmouth seafront on a Tuesday night if you know what I mean.
If you loved wii sports golf then this will disappoint

Excerpt: I waited with anticipation for the release of Tiger Woods 09 as I was already hooked on Wii Sports Golf. I bought the game when it was released and was initially very impressed. Visually the game looks very slick with the a real attention to detail. There are a lot of different ways to play and the muliplayer mode over the internet brings a whole new dimension to things. I played the game with 2 other people over the internet and was impressed with the no-turn play i.e.
