  1. PGA Tour 07 for Wii adds realism without compromising gameplay.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. As for Tiger's mechanics, arthritics beware. If my backswing was jittery, I swung before I intended to--which is frustrating, as the maddening result is a dink instead of a dive. [Apr 2007, p.83]
  5. The Wii version breathes some new life into the series, but doesn't quite nail the controls, at times feeling a little hit and miss.
  6. For the most part however, the control works great. Once you align your backswing with the power gauge on-screen, it's really simple to drive accurate distances and directions.
  7. The world’s laziest sport just got a whole lot lazier. Aside from the one-handed approach and a lack of online play, this game isn’t any better or worse than last year’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 for the PS2.

    Approach this game with patience and you will be rewarded with a fulfilling gaming experience. Yes, the motion sensing gets a little dicey on Approach this game with patience and you will be rewarded with a fulfilling gaming experience. Yes, the motion sensing gets a little dicey on short putts, but you can easily bail on a swing by releasing the B button. Otherwise, a smooth, controlled swing keeps the ball on the straight and narrow every time. All in all, this is a very promising start as a first-generation Wii golf-sim title. Expand

    Yes, the graphics may not be as good as other consoles (especially the backgrounds at times), but I think this is a great Wii game. I think Yes, the graphics may not be as good as other consoles (especially the backgrounds at times), but I think this is a great Wii game. I think it deserves a better rating than a lot of these magazines give credit for. The more you play the game, the better and easier the controls get and the more accuracy and rewards it gives you. HIGHLY recommended to check out at least. Personally, I love it. Expand

    The Wii might have more processing power than an Xbox, but it seems that most of that gets used for the controls and background OS, putting The Wii might have more processing power than an Xbox, but it seems that most of that gets used for the controls and background OS, putting it well below the PS2 graphically. There are framerate hitches EVERYWHERE in this game. The graphics are simple; textures are reused liberally. The Wii controls work good... until the framerate drops too low. Its like they programmed everything based on frames rendered instead of time elapsed. Everything is unpolished and incomplete, much like 95% of EA's "meet the deadline" games, except there isn't going to be a patch to fix this one. For example, in gameface, they used the 'A' button for "next menu", but re-used it for rotating the player, so if you just slightly miss pointing at that little button in the corner, whoops, weren't done yet? Don't get me wrong, theres fun to be had in this game once you change the controls so that it quits playing for you, and realize that putting's power is all scaled based on the distance to the pin and the on-screen player (not you). This isn't the type of game you'd proudly show others as the advantages of the Wii. Expand

    As both a golfer and a gamer this was a must buy, even taking into account the poor reviews. I laughed those off as being written by As both a golfer and a gamer this was a must buy, even taking into account the poor reviews. I laughed those off as being written by 'non-golfers' who were put off by the nuances of trying to hit a ball straight - difficult enough in real life let alone with a wiimote... After playing however, I can confirm that all of the harsh reviews are justified. Driving and approach shots are OK (ish) but the putting mechanism is a complete farce. It is neither realistic (ie like real putting) nor controllable. I average a dozen attempted 'swipes' per green before the thing realizes I am trying to putt... Graphically I place it behind the last GC incarnation, and it cannot keep a constant frame rate. It all smacks of 'can't get it right so get it out as it is' - like in the tutorial where it advises you to take a practise swing by pressing the minus key only to find that the feature does not work until you get to the main game! All in all I would prefer to play Wii Sports Golf... as soon as Super Swing is out in the UK I am afraid Tiger will be out on his ear. Expand

    This game is a quick bad port of the PC version and is effectively unplayable on the Wii. Golf in Wii Sports is infinitely better and uses This game is a quick bad port of the PC version and is effectively unplayable on the Wii. Golf in Wii Sports is infinitely better and uses the Wii controller much better. The use of the Wii controller in this game is a bad joke. Worst of all, the computer player will often suddenly swing spontaneously and hit the ball while you are either preparing for your swing or doing nothing. This happens several times per game, ruining your score. I wrote to Electronic Arts about this and they admitted it, sending me a mail with which I was able to return the game to the store for a full refund, even though there were Wii scratches on the disc. Total waste of time and money, play Wii Sports instead, it's much better. (The menu controls with the Wii controller will also drive you totally nuts.) Expand
