  • Summary: Prove yourself as the greatest golfer of all time by taking on the legends in the prime of their careers -- on their terms. Do you have what it takes to beat Jack Nicklaus in his heyday with a bag full of wooden clubs or Tiger Woods with his modern-day equipment? For the first time, both analog sticks control each shot from tee to green. The left analog stick controls your swing, and the right analog Shape Stick dictates ball trajectory and putt strength. Back your challenges with wagers before any shot or round. Bigger odds are given to special accomplishments, so reap the largest rewards for nailing the toughest shots. Experience 15 beautifully detailed courses including Pebble Beach Golf Links, St Andrews, Reflection Bay, Doral Golf Resort, and more as you play as or against Tiger Woods and 16 other PGA TOUR players, including the newly added Chris DiMarco, Mike Weir, Ian Poulter, and Luke Donald. New Gamebreaker Meter: Build confidence to trigger Gamebreaker situations, and boost your power and accuracy by making great shots and posting low scores. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  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.
  2. Tiger 06 is a hardcore character-building RPG wrapped up in a sports game, letting you craft your own story of spectacular success or crushing failure. If a nongolfer like me can love it, pretty much anyone can.

    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.
  4. Visuals are just as refined and gorgeous as previous versions of the series, with new and subtle differences added to give the game increased flare and a more appealing look to the eye.
  5. 82
    What remains to be seen is whether EA can reintroduce a suitable element of difficulty to knock the series back in the right direction without forcing an unintentional bogie.
  6. Novice players will find this one to be forgiving and experienced players should find enough tweaking to be found to make this enjoyable and not too easy.
  7. EA Sports apparently loved last year's game so much they they've repackaged it. [Jan 2006, p.59]

    My PC doesn't even meet the minimum specs (it's a Gateway Celeron 733, 512mb ram, but I have a great 256mb GeoForce Video Card), and this game rocks! Smoother play, more detail and I love the new courses. I've read lots of reviews, sounds like a lot of whiners out there who don't have enough video card to enjoy a brilliant piece of software. Can't wait until I get back up to speed from 2005, but looks like I'll never go back! Mahalo nui loa ea sports! Expand

    TGWs 06 is a great golf game for any age. 2006 offers many more optoin and tweaks. The putting is kicking my butt some but overall all this game is great. Expand
