Summary: This is probably more a review on EA but they publisher clearly blows a great gaming experience. The new format presented is a refreshing change for the previous tiger challenge model but that's when the fun stops. After 2 rounds EA was already pestering me to buy additional courses. What a rip off if there are courses available why aren't they included on disc?
Summary: Let me preface this that Amazon did a great job with selling the game. I recieved it quick and in very very good condition!But... I have always been pleased with Tiger Woods PGA games. But this game was a different story. It seems that it was rushed. There are many flaws with the commentary. Also, the caddy is just plain annoying! That new feature makes the game super annoying to play and very tedious at the begining of each hole.
Summary: I'm super disappointed in this purchase, and in the reviews found here that led me to it. I don't know how some reviewers can say it's the best TW and they've been playing since the beginning, etc. Nothing like previous titles, graphics are so-so, gameplay has been altered and is quite poor, putting is absolutely awful. Glad I bought it used because after playing for about 1/2 hour I'm returning it.
Summary: I used to review videogames for a pretty good paycheck. I was also Editor-in-Chief of the print golf magazine I invented. This game is really bad, folks. I could go in to 300 different things why. In the end, the sum is a bad videogame. The putting is the worst of the evils. You're gonna three putt so much you'll just give up the game. The inclusion of Augusta National is a nice perk but it is not executed properly. The graphics are shoddy and piecemeal.
If you have TW 10, 11 sucked and 12, so far sucks too.. but not as much

Summary: Stick with TW 10. 11 and 12, EA fd with enough they are more frustrating then fun.... Although the aspect of playing in the Ryders cup or going for the green jacket at the Masters is entertaining. they should have left the putting alone, and on twelve ditch the caddie. he's an idiot.... until you play awhile. well he gets you there, if you played before, you can do better by yourself. On 12 I do like the way you get rated Bronze/silver/gold, in the game though.
Summary: After playing 2 days I'm already stuck in this game. I cannot play a tourny b/c I haven't won a pga event- not sure how to win an event if they won't let me play one. The main menu screen is confusing as well, almost like an rpg trying to figure out what to do next to advance in the game. Choosing the best clubs and outfits before a round is also unclear- all outfits, irons, woods, and putters are in the same menu and can be hard to tell the irons apart.
Summary: What can you say about tiger 12? well the first thing that springs to mind is how EA have created a cheats paradise people producing ridiculous scores, ive played tiger from the start, and im a very good player but i can't achieve the scores that are being produced, i can hit at full power (120) and still be 70_80 yards behind people, i can't hit it any harder. And are EA interested? of course there not.
Summary: Ok i Got this today put in the Xbox 360 and have a nice round of golf, the caddie does your head in after about 3 holes tell you where to play the ball, I always seem to play shots from the look of the lay and where i think is better, but if Noobs are playing this it makes the game a lot easier, and EA Sports why tinker with the putting options i rather play with the classic putter and where is the options to really modify the controller like all the other games you...
Summary: Here's my opinion of Tiger Woods 12: The Masters. Graphics: As usual with EA games the graphics are very good generally. The Masters is no exception. The Augusta course itself is very well realised and looks great. The other courses (not including the downloadable courses as I haven't seen them) also look very good.
