Video game review: Tiger Woods PGAWritten by Michael Siebenaler | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (Electronic Arts)
It’s simply the best video game golf experience thanks to amazing controls that include the optional Wii Motion Plus. Even though Electronic Arts took away the “All-Play version” label golfers of all levels can still enjoy Tiger Woods’ player friendly frolics. The controls are amazing and mimic real life while the new precision putting functions noticeably better than the last installment.
The manual is pretty basic, but you’ll find immense information among the game menus including a practice mode. The icons and meters help you measure and estimate those perfect shots. It’s very easy to succeed and customize your character.
Career modes let you play the PGA Tour season, skip to the FedEx Cup or match up against Tiger in the Tournament Challenge. The expanded multiplayer online tournaments include live tournaments and friend codes are not required. Online golfers can compete worldwide and vie for leader board supremacy.
The large course set includes Banff Springs, Bay Hill Club, Doral Golf Resort, Harbor Town Golf Links, The K Club, Oakmont Golf Club, Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, Torrey Pines Golf Course, Wentworth Golf Club and Westchester Golf Course.
The new disc golf mode, offline multiplayer party games, quick mini games (like putt-putt) and humorous announcers (Scott Van Pelt and Kelly Tilghman) enhance the experience even more. The live weather feature (using the Wii Menu’s Forecast Channel) matches the game conditions with real time weather adding a great dimension to a strong visual experience, though the graphics need more polishing in some areas.
