Excerpt: The Wii remote has always been a capable golf club, although with MotionPlus it becomes an even more accurate ball hitter. Just don’t go into the game expecting it to have pick up and play appeal, like real golf it requires you to practice your swings and to keep the club straight when you are striking the ball.
Conclusion: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 shines apart from previous iterations due to the incorporation of both the game’s community and real results from the PGA. Furthermore, dynamic weather, a new putting scheme, and all the best features forged in previous titles keep this franchise moving in the right direction.
Now with Wii MotionPlus, for true one-to-one swing control.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is the first game to employ Nintendo's new Wii MotionPlus peripheral, an attachment that connects to the bottom of the Wii remote. You can purchase the Wii MotionPlus independently from the game, though it makes better sense to buy the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 MotionPlus bundle, which is $15 cheaper than buying the software and the device separately.
Summary: Golf is more static than team sports like football or baseball. With no roster updates to guarantee a new purchase each year, the Tiger series has to succeed or fail on its new features. This year brings back most of what we saw in Tiger 09, with a few key changes. The new putting mechanic seeks to reconcile the natural feel of an analog swing with the precision of a three-click mechanic, and largely succeeds.
Excerpt: Golf is a game that lends itself well to the Wii’s motion sensing capabilities, and so far during the Wii’s lifespan, we have seen a few good attempts at golf, including EA’s yearly Tiger Woods game as well as the original WiiSports version. However, this years Tigers Woods game is a huge leap above previous versions of the game, thanks mainly to the brilliant WiiMotion + as well as EA’s effort to pack so much into a single game.
XBLA/PC Review - 'The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition'
15 August 2009
Summary: The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition is a completely re-imagined version of the original that adds updated high definition graphics, a re-mastered musical score, and full voiceover to the classic adventure game originally launched in 1990.
Summary: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 for the Nintendo Wii is the definitive golf game. I challenge you to find another game that is as deep and lifelike as this one and I give major credit to EA for getting it done right. Any golf fan would be doing themselves a great disservice by not playing this game and newcomers should find this game to be the best place to start before hitting a real course.
Summary: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 takes golf fans inside-the-ropes to experience the drama and emotion of tournament golf. In addition, the U.S. Open, a USGA championship, and the USGA’s Rules of Golf will be available for the first time in the franchise's history.
Conclusion: I never thought a legitimate golf game could be all that fun, probably because the same way I was playing an action-packed game like NHL, was the way I was playing an action-starved game like golf. But now, thanks to Wii MotionPlus, I'm far more involved in the game and is loaded with fun and unique modes to keep me playing even when the enjoyment of traditional small ball starts wearing out a bit.
