Excerpt: With Tiger Woods finally jumping back into the winners circle recently, it’s never been a better time to start talking about his game Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 and with it the series has bought some interesting control methods on the Xbox360 and PS3 in the Kinect and the Move. Now, I can’t honestly give you a run down on everything the PS3 version has to offer so I won’t be giving you the low down on the Move controls, but for the Xbox fans I spent a lot of time using the...
Conclusion: All in all, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is packed with features, has new gameplay mechanics that let you play more realistically than ever (with a controller, at least), and even packs in solid Kinect controls that make this easily the best Kinect golf game available. EA even innovated how you can get DLC by letting you earn it in-game (or you can just buy it). Great single player modes.
Excerpt: One of most anticipated annual games for me each year is EA’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour. The last two years have seen the franchise continue to improve allowing simulation golf to become more realistic and entertaining than any golf fan could have ever imagined. So, the question for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is whether or not it could build on the success of the last two years, or would it falter and come up just short of the green.
Conclusion: In the end this could be the best golf game you have ever played, or the worst, and it will all be dependent on how much you can adapt to the new swing mechanics, that while take the most realistic approach in video game history, don’t provide the option for casual gamers to revert to a different or classic mechanic.
Summary: Parents need to know Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is golf simulation game that is appropriate for players of all ages. However, parents of younger players might want to keep kids from playing online with strangers since that chat is unsupervised and not moderated. Playing online might lead to exposure of inappropriate language.
Summary: Tiger 13’s improvements to the gameplay are great, even if the tutorials for the new mechanics are worse than useless. However, the additions to the content are less than stellar, with a too-hard, and rather dull legacy mode, and lots of nasty paid-DLC traps that neither reward progress or patience.
Conclusion: Using the method above I was able to consistently drop my first puts on over 70 % regularity while achieving over 60 feet (record being 62 feet eagle) puts with high accuracy on Tour Pro difficulty. The game still has it's shortfalls and lots of bugs, but it is still possible to enjoy rounds of addictive and pleasurable golf.
Excerpt: Golfing games sure have changed a lot from where I was younger and playing ‘Leaderboard Golf’ on the PC (“Um… looks like he hit a tree, Jim”) and I sure was excited to play Tiger Woods 13 when it arrived. Even though I was highly anticipating this game, however, I was unprepared for just how good it actually is.
