    Tiger 09 is remarkably improved across the board.

    It's pretty hard to find serious fault with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09.
  3. In terms of visuals, features, quality of courses and online play, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 is a really great golf game. It would probably be easier to recommend if the series wasn’t prone to such inconsistent yearly updates, but at least EA has focused on making the game better than just bigger.
  4. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 is a solid improvement over its predecessor and a really good golf game.
  5. While Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 still suffers from a few of the glitches and lazy development that plagued its predecessors, the hugely innovative and perfectly implemented additions to the tried and tested Tiger Woods framework makes Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 very easy to recommend.
  6. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 is a good buy for anyone who loves the series and demands every update, and is a must-buy for players who have enjoyed this style of golf but have yet to add a Tiger Woods game to their collection.
  7. Certainly the impact of this year's improvements is less significant than those showcased in Madden, NBA Live and even NHL. [Nov 2008, p.82]
