    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]

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 combines beautiful graphics with excellent controls to bring all the excitement and frustration of golf to your iDevice.

    My only real gripe about the game. You control the swing of the club by moving your finger first down and then quickly up the screen. You can add fade and draw to the shot by moving slightly to the left or right swiping upwards, which I found myself doing far too often. Maybe it's just me and my crappy fingers, or perhaps it was due to the screen size. I don't know, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

    Aside from a few minor quibbles mostly surrounding its integration with Facebook, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12 is a solid return for the series on the App Store and a great pickup for fans of golfing titles.

    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.

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

    Certainly a welcome return, but it doesn't offer as nearly as much as I had hoped. Tiger Challenge and the Facebook integration are strong additions, and the tight controls, particularly on the iPad version are second to none. But, somehow I expected more from EA… more content, more courses, more tightly integrated commentary, and much more in the visuals department (and that's coming from someone who cherishes gameplay).

    A predictably solid new instalment, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 balances a lack of online multiplayer and other problem areas with great swing mechanics and courses.

    With Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12, the EA Sports series returns to the App Store with improved graphics, new modes and the same gameplay that made the previous episode so enjoyable for all the golf enthusiasts out there. What a pity there's no online multiplayer.

    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.
