Authentic golf isn't doesnt equal a fun video game.

Summary: I bought this game about 2 months ago since I have not owned a Tiger Woods game since 2007 and I wanted a more realistic golf game to go along with Hot Shots Golf. After owning it for this long I wish I would've used my $60 on some other games. PROS: - Course graphics are improved - New added power system allows you to ask for more power instead of tapping a button to power up - Offline Multiplayer is still fun - Large number of courses - Enjoy playing from late 1800s to...
Summary: Takes forever to start up, randomly will have a quick freeze in the middle of gameplay. The Kinect controls are not all that great very touchy and difficult to use. Occasionally refuses to respond to your commands to the point of having to restart the game. When the game is working properly it is a lot of fun, while using the controller.
Summary: Have had to restart the game many many times. Constantly freezing up. Not the Xbox as I play many other games. Glitches galore in this game. Another poor display by EA. Also, hitting a leaf will cause your ball to fall like you hit the mesh curtain at a range. I am not a great golfer in real life so I find myself in the trees often, leaves do nothing to my ball.
Summary: I've had this game (the "historic" edition) for about three weeks, and my most recent version was TW 12 for Wii. There are plenty of good features about this game, and the graphics are far superior to the Wii (of course), but there are some gameplay issues that really keep this from being a "great" game. 1. As others have mentioned, you must still fork over money to purchase every available course. This is actually the least of my worries.
Summary: I'm 55yr & have been playing golf sims since the late 80s. I have not played TW since the 09 or 10, can't remember. Gone are the fantasy courses (unless you want to pay extra) gone are the 15 or so regular courses (again, unless you want to pay) gone is the course creator, .....on and on. On the tee box you can't zoom to see the rolls on the green.. really?! Difficulty is good, but it's still to easy coming out of deep rough, I have played a lot of real life golf.
Summary: I have all the Tiger games, this one offeres a little more than the previous versions. Golf gets boring pretty quick now the weather has heated up, id rather go outdoors and play than sit inside and play virtual golf. Game looks great. EA does what it does to get extra money with course DLC. So be prepared to drop some extra $$$ if you want all the courses you will need for your career mode.
Summary: I bought this game for my boyfriend and it is much harder to play than I expected. The kinect didnt pick up our movememts often and it didnt always understand our voice commands. It is also extremely sensitive, far more than any other kinect game I own. However it did give me a chance to beat him in golf so I guess I cant complain there.
Summary: In light of the Tiger Woods scandal, the name of the franchise has been blemished. The creators/developers of this title have therefore made a very practical move to de-tigerify the series. Rather than being entirely fixated on his career the history of the game is laid out before the player.
