In Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, video game fans and golf enthusiasts get a great active option using the motion-based Kinect controller on the Xbox 360. As with their Madden football games, Electronic Arts has a daunting challenge of improving this popular sports series every year. They succeed in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 with improved graphics, PlayStation Move controller capability, and new game mode, Legends of the Majors, which offers playable legendary golf stars like Seve Ballesteros, Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Sam Snead, Lee Trevino and, of course, Tiger Woods. Developers also represent the PGA and LPGA with the present-day playable stars including Bubba Watson, Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler, Lexi Thompson, Stacy Lewis and Paula Creamer.
Players can complete the “Grand Slam” that includes four majors, the Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, The Open Championship and the PGA Championship. Enjoy several full courses complete with smooth graphics enhance the gorgeous gameplay while the impressive weather conditions add vivid realism. The icons and meters help you measure and estimate those perfect shots. Players can customize their swing amid 24 unique styles with a helpful strike meter and improved ball physics. It is very easy to succeed and customize your character and give them those special “retro” looks with special clothing and accessories.
Other first-time features include night golf, which features an illuminated ball. Developers also incorporate online and tournament play in a country club setting for up to 100 members or players can test their online skills against up to 24 competitors. Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14: The Masters Historic Edition also available at a slightly higher price (***1/2, rated E, also available on the PlayStation 3 with PlayStation Move capability).
