  • Summary: One of the most prestigious tournaments in golf, The Ryder Cup, is featured in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11. Gamers select a team and square off to try and bring home The Ryder Cup for their squad. The Ryder Cup is one of the last great sporting events to be founded in prestige rather than prize money. Choose from the U.S. or European squad and participate in the various competition formats – foursomes where players hit alternate shots, fourballs and singles which traditionally bring the biennial event to a close with players going head to head. When playing The Ryder Cup mode offline, gamers have the option to swap matches, thus giving you the ultimate control over the outcomes of other matches. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 has to be played to be believed.

    Tiger Woods 11 has it where it counts in that the core golf is much better than it has been in some time. Now I'd just like the rest of the game to catch up.
  3. Loads of courses and the addition of the Ryder Cup make this the deepest Tiger to date.
  4. 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.
  5. Aside from a buyer-beware warning, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is a solid investment for those rainy days when you are not enjoying the real deal.
  6. Toughie, this. Plump for Wii for gameplay but PS3 and 360 if you're into visuals/online. [Aug 2010, p.92]
  7. 60
    This entry is just not worth bothering with. [Issue#194, p.93]

    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.
