Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: There’s so much to do in Tiger Wood’s PGA 2005, you may not even have time for other activities - like actually playing golf. There’s a lot we covered, and more that we didn’t even get to touch upon, like the fact that Timberlake pops up in the game, or that you can buy a one-handed swing if the price is right. Sure, the game is more unrealistic than not, and it doesn’t look that pretty, but for outright console fun, the game is way up there.
Excerpt: Perhaps the most significant overall theme of Tiger 2005 is the idea of customization. While Tiger’s games have always been deep in terms of player interaction and development, this year’s version lifts character creation to new heights. The GameFace feature that was so innovative from last year returns with a vengeance in 2005.
Excerpt: For better or for worse, the game of golf has seen its image change quite dramatically over the past decade or so, shifting from a sport of privilege and exclusivity to something more accessible and populist. Tiger Woods, the golfer, has played no small part in this, and EA's Tiger Woods PGA Tour series has wisely broadened its own scope year after year, introducing non-traditional gameplay modes, exaggerated characters, and some good, tactile gameplay mechanics.
Excerpt: It's no secret to anyone who follows the PGA Tour: Tiger Woods is not the dominant force he used to be. Some attribute it to his upcoming marriage, some say the field is catching up to him, some say that he's simply in a long slump. Whatever the real reason is, he now is no longer in the hunt at every tournament he enters.
Conclusion: Musically the game seems to have found the right sort of thing for me, a set of tunes by a BT (never heard of them), their music is reminiscent of Jan Hammer or Harold Faltermeyer and it suits the game's arcadier moments perfectly - certainly much better than the strange mixtures of previous years.
Pros: Still plays a cracking game of golf (as long as you don't want a challenge)., Loads of courses and players and gameplay modes., A slightly more complete control system., Looks slightly nicer., The EA ‘Game Face’ player and swing editor are great., Excellent ball physics.
Cons: Way too easy for experienced TW players., Still has a frustrating accuracy issue with some short shots., Most of the courses and players were in last year’s game., Some poor camera work., No Xbox Live support.
Conclusion: To say I am disappointed would be an understatement. If only they had maybe missed this years out and instead used the time to make a corker for 2006 I would be quite happy to miss out one year in the series, but no here we are again with something that is a complete and utter worthless purchase for any person who owns an earlier version. If you want a good golf game, buy either Links 2004 or Tiger Woods 2004 and get many more courses for less cost.
Conclusion: Det råder knappast något tvivel om att Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 är ett otroligt bra och välgjort golfspel. Jag har letat efter avigsidor med ljus och lykta men ännu inte funnit någonting mer anmärkningsvärt än den dåliga musiken och de bitvis hackande introsekvenserna. Jag skulle i och för sig kunna sura över att jag nyligen tappade en säker turneringsseger på banans två sista hål men där är jag osjälvisk nog att erkänna mig själv som den felande länken.
Pros: Beroendeframkallande och mängder av inställningsmöjligheter.
