  1. Other than the sound, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 does everything needed to help give the franchise a breath of fresh air. It's nice to see that EA Sports can do more than just throw in one new play or change one part of a game.

    This year's Tiger feels more complex and sophisticated than ever. Putting is more challenging (e.g., total bitch)... Yet, the game is still accessible to armchair golfers, thanks to those welcome arcade-y touches.
  3. Putting cheat Tiger Vision and advice from your caddy are gone, forcing you to read the greens. [Nov 2005, p.118]
  4. For years I've been saying that the only significant problem with the Tiger games is the putting interface. So what did they do this year? They made putting harder by removing caddy tips and employing the same analog swing interface as tee shots.
  5. Tiger's undeniable quality has survived the tweaks. As impressive as ever but no great leap forward in evolution. [NGC]

    Putting is harder, but much more rewarding--an Ideal Putt Camera helps with gauging potential break on difficult putts.
  7. I'm surprised and saddened that this was outdone by a two-year-old game. EA's trying some new things here, but they don't quite work yet.

    I think 05 was better I liked the caddy tips on the green,you dont get this in 06. I can do without tiger vision. but it was nice when you needed a hard put. This game is a step in the wrong direction, Im not used to that from EA sports Expand

    What was EA Sports thinking? Tiger Woods 06 is by far inferior to Tiger Woods 04/05 in numerous ways, how is that possible? Long time fan of the series, but if they dont get back to TW 05/04 graphics, playability, & putting theyve lost my vote. I'm returning the game the day after I bought it. They had it right on the money with TW 05 all they had to do to improve for 06 is add new courses, new players and increase the difficulty. Unbelievable that they would downgrade in graphics for useless/mostly unlikable new features. Guess i'll continue to play 05 another year. Expand
