EA’s Tiger Woods game offers ‘amazing control’Written by Michael Siebenaler | | email@example.com
Like “Madden 11,” Electronic Arts has the daunting challenge of improving this popular sports series every year. They succeed in “Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11” with improved graphics, the Ryder Cup addition, extended online game modes and feature play using the upcoming PlayStation Move controller. Visual boosts add more texture to the course and player clothing.
Game developers even factor in the weather with player movements and details from wind and other weather elements, which factor into the game well. New players should initially adjust the weather settings as they must conquer a considerable learning curve, but the focus mode and “true aim” camera angle provide new assistance.
Experienced players can use the swing tuner for recommendations to use acquired experience points on equipment. Clothing items and other accessories look nice but have less functionality within the game. Players get the most points by winning events and can upgrade skills in accuracy, control, power and putting categories. The manual is very basic, so look for more information in the game menus and practice mode.
It is very easy to succeed and customize your character. The controls are amazing and mimic real life while the new precision putting functions noticeably better than the last installment. This strong game works with the upcoming PlayStation Move peripheral — another great option for anyone looking for a more motion-based experience like on the Nintendo Wii version (***1/2, rated E, also available on the iPhone, Nintendo Wii, and Xbox 360).
