    Small issues notwithstanding, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 is everything you'd want in a mobile golf game.

    Despite changing little other than the graphics quality and swapping out some golfers and courses for new ones, Tiger remains the iOS champ and is worth picking up if you're a diehard golfer.

    The finger-swiping swing system is more precise than ever and eight courses offer a massive challenge. [July 2011, p.93]

    All this praise aside, the game's commentary comes up way short.

    A big improvement over the original iOS version, but it doesn't feel a whole lot different gameplay-wise. The swipe mechanic for swinging works beautifully, just as it did before.

    The tighter swipe controls and new power shots are a big plus. The Facebook-linked minigame is also a cool add. The commentary is pretty rough, though, and the rest of Tiger might feel a little familiar to loyal fans.

    If you're prepared to expend the requisite effort, there's a decent game of golf to be had here, but there's substantial room for improvement.
