  1. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 has to be played to be believed.
  2. I loved playing this game and was thrilled to see that EA Sports took a simple game of golf and brought a lot to the table to make gamers have fun.
  3. I think a lot of players won't notice too many of this year's more subtle new additions, but will instead help themselves to the 24-player online (where you can construct your own Ryder Cup-like competitions), GamerNet challenges, online tournaments, and five new courses. That's fine, but the smaller improvements made to this year's game offer players more freedom and customizability.
  4. This might be the Ryder Cup Edition of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, but it is actually the closest the series has ever been to fully replicating the sport. The new changes are under-advertised, but once you get in there and start playing them, you will be pleasantly surprised at what a difference they make.

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.
