    Gargantua's Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008 (360)

    [April 24, 2008 02:26:24 PM]
    The Tiger Woods series is the only good golf game being made. Links made a weak attempt at a console golf game. Also, Hot Shots golf and stupid games like that. But EA sports has made the only realistic golf game for the past 8 or so years. I remember playing the first one on N64, I loved it. Each year they make enhancements and new options that only people who know what they are doing will really notice. Most important to gameplay, they keep changing how you adjust the loft of the shot, and the english on the ball. Also, they keep tweaking how the player swings, including increased sensitivity.

    Because I have played every year of the series I can give a good analysis of how the games are progressing. It's obvious they're going for more realism, however, I think that can be a bad thing. They are removing little things they used to have that were fun. Such as imaginary courses that are much more creative than the real ones. My biggest objection is that they got rid of those courses. With the actual courses it's very easy to shatter the course records and win every tournament by many, many shots. The created courses at least make it more challenging, by making it extremely long, or unrealistically tough. Either way, it makes the game more fun to have created courses. It's important to have realism in the game, but not at the expense of fun. If you haven't played these games, then you don't need to worry about my criticisms. I only say them becuase I can compare every year of this game. If you like golf, or Tiger Woods, or just hitting balls, then try this game. Give it a chance, it's fun.
