    Tiger 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.

  1. 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.
  2. All in all, it's well worth a purchase if you're yet to get into the series, and a worthy addition to the mounting pile for fans.
  3. If yearly sports games are like fine wines, then Tiger Woods 2011's vintage is a good one. It may not be a great year like FIFA 10 or Madden 2003, but it does follow a run of very mediocre years for the series and for this reason it's well worth a look.
