  1. With bolstered controls and a development system as deep as most RPGs, Tiger Woods is still the game beat when it comes to golf.
  2. Gameplay is top notch this year catering to all walks of life. Whether you are a newbie or veteran, there are many levels of difficulty and settings that will challenge any golfing fan.
  3. It is a great game to have around when friends come over, and the controls really make the game fun. However, if you just want to play the career mode by yourself, I would suggest picking up a copy for one of the other systems. The overall complexity of the title is not as deep as it is on the other consoles, but the gameplay is much more fun for the average player.
  4. It’s certainly the best golf game on Wii, but whether the upgrades are worth $50 if you own Tiger 07 will depend on how much you like the series.

    What you are left with is a mature confident golf game that really does deliver an unrivalled experience in terms of replicating real-world golf.

    Wii owners finally have the Tiger Woods game they should have had six months ago.
  7. The lack of initial on-screen prompts aside, it’s entirely possible for anyone to throw themselves into Tiger’s 2008 outing and have both a rewarding and entertaining time, be they a golf fan or not.

    What a difference half a year makes. [Nov 2007, p.104]
  9. Seriously, EA, don't invite that "GET IN THE HOLE" guy back again.
  10. Great real life-like controls make for a very good golf simulation and all the modes and multiplayer will keep you busy. One for the fans.
  11. If you did buy it last year you won’t find anything here that makes it worth spending your money again.
  12. On the Wii, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 hasn’t completely gotten into the swing of things provided by its Xbox 360 counterpart: namely, online play and precision swinging and putting.

Not only does the game continue to give gamers realistic courses and the ability to creat/build your own golfer, it also incorporates swing mechanics. Don't know why anyone would want to sit down while playing this game...My only complaints would be that chipping can be difficult (too much focus on the speed of follow through) and approach shots aren't too influenced by the hole being above/below the ball. Previous editions seemed to emphasize this more. The putting is realistic (unless you are a cheater, don't bother with the putt preview), but just like actually putting, it takes practice.

As easy as it is to drive 110% and in the fairway every time, the chipping and putting controls are obversely difficult. There is, however, plenty of variety and interesting minigames. It's worth buying if you can find it used. Full Review »
