Excerpt: The biggest difference between Tiger Woods' current-gen debut in 2005 and the newly released PGA Tour 11 is incredible in terms of gameplay depth, feature variety, and presentational quality. But when metered out over six HD iterations, it can be a bit harder to draw up much enthusiasm for the year-to-year distinctions.
Pros: Great, accessible, and refined simulation.; Well-executed online modes, including new Team Play option; Ryder Cup and True Aim are quality additions to formula.
Conclusion: The achievements will be tricky for new players but it shouldn’t put you off as the gameplay is still as great as ever and really fun either solo or playing multiplayer offline or online. One other thing worth mentioning which isn’t good however though is the DLC. It’s 600MSP a course which is too expensive and we have seen most of these courses already. They should be in the game from the off.
Excerpt: Electronic Arts has the virtual golfing arena covered with is yearly installment of the long running Tiger Woods series. Golf and EA have been together since I can remember. I am a console gamer at heart and I remember playing PGA European Tour back during the Sega Genesis days. Since then the combination of golf and videogames has come a very long way and the 2010 edition of Tiger Woods PGA Tour brings some new additions to the table for everyone to enjoy.
Excerpt: I feel like I've written this review numerous times already. Such is the way with the Tiger Woods series that the vast majority of the game remains the same year after year. It's not necessarily a bad thing, considering EA has completely dominated the genre in terms of quality and sales for quite some time, but at some point a fairly large shake up might be needed.
Summary: In the end you can’t ask for a better golf game. Sure most of it feels like last year’s model rehashed but hell just because you watched The Godfather doesn’t mean it won’t be as good when you watch it again. The game is every penny worth of the cost but I do have to say that if you bought Tiger 09 you wouldn’t be missing anything worth noting.
Conclusion: There is a lot to like about this year's "Tiger Woods" but, unfortunately, there is also a lot wrong as well. For those who haven't picked up a golf game before this will be a welcome surprise. For hardcore fans, though, it is likely to leave you wondering where all the new features are.
Conclusion: Tiger '10's new Live Tournaments feature, and the addition of varying weather conditions, make this a great place for newcomers to get in on the golfing action, and provides enough features and online support to make it worth looking into for series veterans.
