Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s beyond me why swinging a club around is known as relaxing, surely it doesn’t give the arm muscles much rest and when you see your ball sink into a pond it can’t do your blood pressure any good. Perhaps it’s the tranquil and green courses and the lack of urgency seen in other more fast paced sports that has given it this label, but still, a picnic is definitely more relaxing.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 Review

  • Conclusion: The other sort of challenge-based meta game is based on GamerNet, EA Sports’ online component. When you make a great shot, you can save it as a clip, or as a GamerNet challenge that people can then go and try to repeat. You can even change the parameters around a bit to make your very own minigame out of it. And when you see GamerNet icons in the field of play as you are playing other modes, beating them (hitting a drive farther, getting a ball closer to the pin, etc.

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 09

True achievements
11 November 2008
  • Conclusion: And unlike last year's version, you don't feel the need to complete the Tiger Challenge before your skills are sufficient to face the field in the PGA Tour season. It's also a huge breakthrough to be able to play a four-person round in about as much time as a single-player round. Simultaneous play is a huge addition to this year's title. This review is based on a retail copy purchased used from Rogers Plus.

  • Excerpt: It's about that time of the year when EA rolls out its big sporting guns. Madden is a big deal in the US, but in Europe Tiger Woods is the first EA Sports title of note this year. As ever the game has been met by forums full of people moaning about how it's yet another quick cash-in and that EA hasn't changed anything. Rarely do people consider that this is a golf game and as such EA can't rewrite the rule book.

  • Excerpt: Long-time aficionados of the series will remember how, before the famous Eidos/Sports Interactive split, a certain club from the blue side of Liverpool tended to win everything in sight with consummate ease, much unlike their real-life counterparts. Everton’s assured in-game success may have had a little something to do with co-creators Paul and Oliver Collyer being die-hard Everton fans, but whilst the Merseyside team’s triumphs were a smidge dubious in Tiger Woods’...
  • Pros: Another outing brimming with goodies, New additions like Club Tuner more hit than miss, Looks even better (and yellower)
  • Cons: Online remains clumsy and soulless, Hank Haney’s drills aren’t much fun

  • Conclusion: modified by your performance on tour and in competition matchups – as you do better at those activities,  the skill improves. You can modify these attributes either temporarily with practice sessions (with Tiger’s Coach, Hank Haney) or purchase items from the pro shop that will offer permanent benefits (just like that +2 charisma t-shirt I bought). tackle the pro tour or earn money by competing on tour locations in Tiger Challenges.

  • Conclusion: So TW09 unfortunately is one of those games that could justify the "yearly rehash with a couple of added features" namesake. But one thing is worth bearing in mind, it's still the best golf game I have played on a console and I really enjoyed trying to master it.

  • Conclusion: What is so great about a Tiger Woods PGA Tour game of a golf and playing golf in real life is the lack of frustration. I never find myself wanting to throw something when playing the game nor do I ever get to point of throwing out expletives. More then anything it is great to be able to get through some truly majestic golf courses and continue to improve your player along the way.

  • Conclusion: The issue with annual sports games is if they do enough to warrant the cost of upgrading the game you have for just a graphics uplift. Well, in the case of this game, it clearly does. Any fault in last year’s game has been removed, and the game is a jump up from last years. Those that choose to purchase this game will have a much better experience than those who stick with previous releases. This game is the crown in EA’s sporting library.
