7 September 2013
Excerpt: With Tiger Woods 12: The Masters upon us, has the title added enough features to justify its price tag? A lot of things can happen in a year, but perhaps one thing we didn’t expect was for good ol Tiger Woods to be caught, literally with his trousers down, in a scandal that rocked his career.
Excerpt: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters builds on the foundation of years past, but adds enough new features to take simulation golfing to an entirely new level. Adding to the tried and true gameplay mechanics and graphical presentations that have wowed fans for years, EA Sports was able to up their game with new voices, refined in-game graphics, but most importantly The Masters.

Excerpt: Finally Augusta National and The Masters finds its way to the video game world. After far too long, arguably the most famous golf course and tournament in the world (sorry British Open fans) is realized on consoles. Does its inclusion alone make it worth picking up Tiger 12? What else is EA bringing to the table in this year’s offering? Let’s find out.
Conclusion: Which leads us back to our three-foot putt to go up 3 strokes with 6 holes to play. We decided to ignore our caddy’s suggestion and naturally missed the putt long by a few feet. Ultimately, we tapped in for par what should have been a birdie – the best description we can come up with for Tiger Woods 12.
Pros: Augusta National, Tiger's Masters Moments, Easy drives and irons
Cons: So. Much. Loading., Putting will drive you crazy, Dull group of pro golfers
