Summary: Don't get this game expecting to play online with you friends, the marketing copy is out of date. EA shut down the multiplayer servers for this game in August 2011 as part of their tactics to get people to buy the latest and greatest games.
Summary: certainly doesn't break away from the franchise. It's a good typical Tiger golf game... bought it used for $11. so at that price I love it. Good game overall, the LIVE features are nice but joining a game with someone on your friend's list is a bit confusing.
Summary: On the positive side, graphics are a big part of any golf game, and I think they did a super job. The natural elements look realistic -- the rippling of the water, the swaying of the treetops, the spray of rain off the spinning ball -- and add to the fun of playing the game.
Summary: I have been playing, or should I say working on this game since it was released. I too have had seemingly inexplicable problems with the length of approach shots that were pretty predictable on 2009, but certainly are not on 2010.
As Usual, too little detail and a major flaw with the computer golfers

Summary: While this game has some fun to it, EA Sports has never been known to go out of their way to fine tune a product and give it some polish, and certainly they rarely fix anything with a patch. The computer golfers in this game are PERFECT.
Summary: I LOVED Tiger Woods '09 and pretty much mastered the thing. Don't get me wrong, I want new challenges. For $60 I don't want to just slide right in and start dominating right off the bat..... But I'd prefer legit challenges versus curve balls.
Summary: Having read the two previous reviews, I wonder if I'm playing a different game. Firstly lets make it clear - although I don't play real golf I am a bit of a veteran on golf games, especially Tiger Woods PGA. I feel that they have made the challenges too difficult this time.
