  1. PGA Tour 07 for Wii adds realism without compromising gameplay.
  2. Nintendo Power
    85
    The short response is that it works well, but it's not quite a hole in one. [may 2007, p.87]
  3. The lack of any online functionality certainly hurts the game, but you’ll still find it enjoyable nonetheless.
  4. With basically the same gameplay and modes found in its other next-generation counterparts (sans the upgraded visuals and online gameplay) but with the added bonus of the brilliant Wiimote swinging controls, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 comes up aces and eagles.
  5. If you are already a Tiger Woods PGA Tour fan, you will surely appreciate the unique translation on the Wii. Compared to Wii Golf, Tiger Woods 07 is a lot more user friendly.
  6. If you loved Wii Sports Golf and were looking for more, this game will be exactly what you’re looking for as the game is undoubtedly the most in-depth and fun golf game on the Wii.

    If you've already picked up 07, what you're really getting here is a shot to play some impressively immersive golf using the Wii Remote. It's a solid demonstration of the technology.
  8. Fancy trying a spot of golf in your living room? Wii's unique motion controller does somewhat of a decent job, with plenty of fun and exercise to boot.
  9. Golf fans will enjoy it while non-golfers will still be entertained by the novelty of gameplay. It has some flaws in the control scheme, but overall, it's good.
  10. If you already have played through this game on another system, the new controls probably aren’t enough to warrant a new purchase, as they are the only new addition. But if you haven’t had the 07 version, and are a Wii-control fan, this is a must have for the Wii.
  11. Enjoyable on the Wii and the swing control goes a long way towards making you feel as if you’re actually swinging a club. The controls aren’t perfect yet, but they feel a lot more realistic than pushing a stick up and down with your thumb.
  12. 75
    The control hiccups may cause problems, but most of them can be countered with care. But the biggest bonus: Not once will you see starlight dancing off the ball.
  13. Tiger Woods 07's excellent use of the Wii's motion-sensing abilities makes it a worthwhile purchase for anyone looking to hit the links on the Wii.
  14. While the casual gamer may get frustrated with even a more realistic approach to the game, the hardcore gamer will appreciate the new features and nuances that easily make the game worthy of a purchase for any fan of the links.
  15. Every golf and back-injury enthusiast should give this a try. The controls will aggravate for a while, but with enough practice, they're a non-issue.
  16. I actually got the best results when I sat on my couch and swung the remote from side to side, which generally resulted in straight, powerful drives. But I just didn’t feel right playing the game that way; I’m sure Tiger Woods wouldn’t approve.

    Tiger Woods 07 is the best golf game yet on the Wii, but hopefully next year's edition will have the rough edges hammered out. [May 2007, p.58]
  18. While I was happy to a beefed up version of Wii Sports Golf, with more control over your swing, I was a little disappointed that the on screen representation of my swing wasn’t in time with what I was doing, like in Wii Sports, and I was really disappointed that my backswing was completely stopped at some times too.

The controls are what will cause even the most dedicated golf fan to give up on this game. The Wii remote doesn't always respond to your commands, and may even hit the ball for you even though you have yet to swing. There are a lot of different modes but your just doing the same thing throughout all of them. I don't even know why they bothered including the "arcade" minigames if the gameplay is exactly the same across the board. There is a lot of content, and the thought of swinging the Wii mote as a golf club does sound cool, but it doesn't work. Why bother putting yourself through this torture when you can just go out and play golf for real. Full Review »

    This game is absolutely terrible. How can you play a game when the controls don't even work properly? Terrible game. Wii Golf on WiiThis game is absolutely terrible. How can you play a game when the controls don't even work properly? Terrible game. Wii Golf on Wii sports is way more responsive and enjoyable than this p.o.s. Honestly, when a Golf game is both more frustrating and boring than actual golf, then something is seriously wrong. Too bad Tiger put his name out on this piece of shit. Full Review »

    I had similar problems with the controls, for the people saying were just not doing it right I have to disagree. I am also having the problem I had similar problems with the controls, for the people saying were just not doing it right I have to disagree. I am also having the problem with hitting hte ball while still in my backswing. I found the problem was I was swinging too much like a real golfer, left hip facing the screen keep your head down, golf club hold on the control etc. When I used only one hand and faced the screen instead of being in a proper golf stance it worked better (still happened just not as much) Unfortunatly that takes most of the fun of doing a 'real' golf swing away from the game.
