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...
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.

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 Woods 13 is the definitive golf simulation game to play, no doubt. Total Swing Control and a long, satisfying career are sure to keep enthusiasts hooked. But it isnï¿½t the best game for beginners and has a few chinks that makes the overall experience fall short of being great.
Pros: Total Swing Control is a great addition, Exquisite golf courses, Lengthy career mode, Tiger Legacy
Cons: Not enough help for beginners, Canï¿½t custom save, Online features costly
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.
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.
Excerpt: I'm a bogey golfer (at best), but I know enough about golf to know when to use a closed stance versus an open one, and where to try and hit on the ball to achieve different spins. My problem on the course lies in execution. Golfers everywhere are nodding right now. We all know it's hard enough to hit the ball straight, let alone shape shots.
Excerpt: Despite the ups and downs in both his personal and professional life, Tiger Woods can at least rest easy knowing that the video game bearing his moniker has been pretty consistent. Last year's version was a highlight since the stuffed shirts at Augusta finally allowed us to play along at home. With all the focus being on the Master's and presentation, one could overlook the lack of change in the gameplay.
