  1. Toughie, this. Plump for Wii for gameplay but PS3 and 360 if you're into visuals/online. [Aug 2010, p.92]
  2. This version of Tiger Woods seems to have become something of a victim of its own success and the result is that the game is very, very similar to that of last years game.
  3. For the seasoned player, it comes down to whether True Aim sounds like something you'd enjoy, and whether five new courses plus some tweaks to the XP and stroke system are enough to justify adding another box to the pile. All the changes are certainly beneficial, but none feel essential.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is a first class golfing game but lacks innovation and major improvements. EA Tiburon could have done a better job on this one.
  5. The additions and changes might not be a complete success, but the game's gentle rhythm and solid fundamentals are just as oddly compelling as they ever were.
  6. The best golf simulation on the market, but it has no appeal for people who already have the 09 or 10 editions.
  7. It's the same old Tiger, at least for now.[Aug 2010, p.111]
  8. Feels dated, but still a solid golf sim. Needs a FIFA style overhaul. [Aug 2010, p.96]
  9. Even if this Tiger Woods does the bare minimum, it stays classy and shows strong basics.
  10. 60
    This entry is just not worth bothering with. [Issue#194, p.93]

This version is yetTiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is grasping at straws trying to find new ways to change how you play golf in a video game. This version is yet another classic EA Sports game where they remove features that worked great and put in new ones that serve to frustrate the player (especially this time around with the development of skills being combined with money with the 'XP Bank', so that you are forced to decide whether your swing power could use a bump, of if you want to save up XP for three months just to afford a new set of clubs).

    My major complaint are the 3-part Skills Challenges, not that they aren't a great addition to the game, but you have to complete each challenge in order, and it's incredibly frustrating when some challenges are near impossible and take 10+ tries, only to be followed by a challenge an infant could complete on the first try.

    At it's core it seems like EA Sports knows if you like realistic golf games you're stuck buying Tiger Woods '11 whether you like it or not, so why make it brilliant when they know it's better for them to give you a lackluster game so that when the following year comes out you'll buy it as well in the hopes they finally get it right.
