Summary: I bought this game for my husband (who is a very good golfer) and me (and I'm a terrible golfer). The only downside to this game, other than the annoying commentaries (especially by Kelly) is the putting -- it's really bad! And it gets quite frustrating when a 2-putt turns into a 5-putt because the remote didn't see the stroke. We found the key to putting is to do it very slowly. Once you get the hang of this programming flub, the game is quite enjoyable.
Summary: I was very skeptical before buying this game especially after reading the negative reviews. I took a chance and purchased the game. At first I was a little disappointed since the graphics aren't nearly as good as the ps3's and the commentators are lousy (they're the same as in the ps3 09 though) they were much more entertaining in the previous versions; not sure who decided to change them, but it was a bad mistake. Anyway, back to the game.
Summary: I first rented this version at a local store. Dreaded the thought of the putting after so many bad reviews. It took one round to get the hang of it. Playing regular Tiger I'am sure is of some aid, none the less it becomes easier. The strange thing is the rental game as soon as the putter goes back the bars are going up on the power meter. When I got this (purchase )game home and putted it was very different.
Summary: Purcahsed the Tiger Woods 09 for the kids(12 & 16) for Christmas and it has been a ball having match play events all over the world. Yes, the putting is not easy to master but it does come with time. Much better than previous versions of this game. As a low handicap golfer what I love is that the swing you need to play the game really does emmulate a real golf swing. Great tempo trainer for me during the long cold winters here in the Northeast.
Summary: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play This game is fun to play but much more of a challenge after playing the 2008 version. The putting is harder and to get a good swing in is more difficult even at the easy level. I can get really frustrated because I had gotten pretty good at the 2008 game and now I have to start all over again finding my nich.
