Summary: Not as good as the others but still fun. Don't like the caddie, and it seems to me like the loading on this game takes FOREVER! I play HD first person shooters all the time, and they are much faster than this game, which to me does not seem to be that detailed in resolution to take so long to load. I also don't like that we have to purchase more courses. But that seems to be the way video games are going in general.
Summary: Really good gameplay, too bad you have to purchase most of the courses. I am really not happy about the direction EA sports is going with most of its games. All of this DLC that you have to buy now just to play the game. I made my golfer get up to the PGA and all of the sudden I only have a few events to play in unless I purchase extra courses.
very frustrating without knowing how to advance on your own.

Summary: im an avid golfer in real life.i bought tiger woods 12 because it was more challenging than the other tiger woods games/and the price right.the only problem with the game,is they will let you go only so far.after that your on your own.i cant get no answers from ea sports or anyone else.if thier anyone out there that can advise or help me/id be a happy camper.thank you mike
Summary: This game could have rewritten the history books. The long awaited addition of Augusta is great, adding Jim Nantz and David Feherty is good, but they are way too repetitive. I don't mind the DLC for buying new courses, but how dare EA charge you for courses that already appeared in previous versions of the Tiger Woods series. That's a farce. You don't have to buy Gillette Stadium and Heinz Field to play Madden, so you should not have to buy courses like TPC Boston, etc.
I'd recommend a pass on this. At least until EA gets its head out of the DLC cloud.

Summary: Basically, as far as the game goes, if you've played 2010 or 2011 Tiger Woods, you've played this game. The only real differences are the yearly "gimmick" feature (caddy recommended shots this year), improved graphics and a different course mixture. The caddy feature is golf on training wheels. I'm just going to come out swinging with that. Its kind of unnecessary.
Summary: First off, I will say I do not buy this game every year, the last one I bought was a few years ago, but the Amazon credit got me to bite. The Good: The golfing part seems really good and I kind of like the caddy advice. Graphically, the game is good, but I don't see any major improvements from the last one I played. The presentation is solid and the courses are pleasant, but sometimes a little too clean.
