Excerpt: “A little bit of everything” seems to be EA Sports’ motto these days. At this point in the console generation, it’s a bit much to expect giant innovations in gameplay mechanics or graphics. Because of that, EA Sports has gone for the kitchen-sink approach with this year’s iteration of its starting lineup, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is no different.
Excerpt: I have always felt that it must be exceptionally difficult to develop annualised games year in and year out. This is especially true for sports games where the sport itself (and even the players) haven’t changed too much from the previous year. I am happy to say that the developers at EA Tiburon have managed to come up with the perfect combination of changes for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 to keep die-hard fans of the franchise well satisfied, while keeping those gamers...
Conclusion: Legends of the Masters dips into the sport's past, drawing on the power of its players and its history for one of the PGA Tour's best new features in recent years. Much of the rest of the additions, however, have little or no impact. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is decent, but do we really need another EA golf game?
Summary: Parents need to know that Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 is a family-friendly golf game. It lets you step onto world-famous courses, as or against celebrated golf pros from today or yesterday. There isn't any eyebrow-raising content to worry about in this game -- except for the option to voice chat during online play, and thus risk hearing inappropriate language (such as profanity).
Review: EA finds its swing with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14
1 April 2013
Excerpt: Like the man that graces the cover of EA's latest golf game, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is back. Tiger Woods PGA had a bit of a hiccup last year ; aside from some added swing mechanics and baby Tiger, very little was added to the long-running golf franchise -- an annualization problem many sports titles seem to suffer from. But like Woods, EA has found new life in its flagship golf game, introducing new modes, courses and mechanics that add an all-new layer of depth.
Excerpt: As we enter into spring many turn their eyes to the golf course. This also brings the latest iteration of video game golf from EA Sports - Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14. This is the first year all four golf majors are in the franchise. They are the Masters Tournament, the U.S. Open, The Open Championship, and the PGA Championship.
Summary: Bigger, not necessarily better. That, in a nutshell, is Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14. After last year's speed bump of a game that added virtually nothing to the long-running golf franchise save some enhanced swing mechanics and Toddler Tiger, the developers at EA Tiburon packed a lot of goodies into this new release.
Pros: Enthralling Legends of the Majors mode depicts over a century of golfing history, Sepia-tone graphics and authentic old-time clubs for historic moments, Adds depth with LPGA Tour, night golf, and quick tournaments, Shot shaping gives you more control with draws and fades
Cons: The core game shows little evolution over previous years, Inconsistent commentary, Lingering swing issues with Kinect
