    I've only thrown the disk across the room once so far. 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.

    Meh. Good game if you haven't played a Tiger Woods game since early PS2 days but I became rather bored with it after maybe 20 hours of game play. The controls are actually pretty solid when comparing the motions needed to play golf in real life- that was certainly cool. The mini games are too easy and there is nothing exciting about playing in a tournament. Where the announcersMeh.

The mini games are too easy and there is nothing exciting about playing in a tournament. Where the announcers voice went is a mystery to me.... one day they were there and the next they are gone... and still gone to this day.... huh? I changed no options.... Don't watch a replay of an amazing shot- that will only ensure that you will get snaked because of glitches and lose a stroke on that hole... Gotta love that. This one is just another PS2 import... Not terrible but I'll probably put it up on feeBay shortly... Expand

    Really dissapointed. Swing mechanics were okay, though imprecise and confusing especially where chip shots are concerned. The mechanic for moving where you're aiming is virtually broken. I'm not kidding. The thing that got this sent back to the shop was how shocked I was at how bad the graphics are. Okay, so the Wii is no xbox360, but I refuse to look at graphics that Really dissapointed. Swing mechanics were okay, though imprecise and confusing especially where chip shots are concerned.

Okay, so the Wii is no xbox360, but I refuse to look at graphics that wouldn't be especially good even on a PS2. Some of the light effects are alright, but everything else is abysmal. *sigh* Back to paying those damn 9 holes of Wii Sports golf again. I pray We Love Gold will be better. Expand

    I had a lot of fun with this game, but it has a few glaring flaws: - I rolled in a beautiful hole in one and decided to watch the reply. I then watched as the ball stopped short in the replay! Surely enough, after I watched the reply I found myself with 1 inch putt. Unacceptable. - Fairly often, when my ball lands in the rough and/or in an unusual spot, it will be magically moved about 10 I had a lot of fun with this game, but it has a few glaring flaws: - I rolled in a beautiful hole in one and decided to watch the reply.

On one particular hole, I would choose to hit into the rough because it left me with a fairly easy second shot, but then the game would move my ball more than 100 yards back! I hit that shot into the same spot and, surely enough, my next shot was again from 100 yards back. - It amazes me that I can shatter a course record in the first day of a tournament and then watch as at least five others match that record in days two, three, and four.

    This game is a strong improvement from last year's, but it still lacks control. With all that the Wiimote has to offer, EA has yet to hone it in. Drive and iron shots are great, but chips and putts are absolutely horrible. It's guaranteed that in a nine-hole game, you'll have at least two wild shots, and one of them will fly off while you're pulling the back swing.

If you liked '07, then pick this up when the price drops, but the best version is still on PC. I still play this on the Wii, but turn the system off when a 4' putt goes for 20' or a 20' putt only goes 4'. Expand

  1. 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.
  2. The best Tiger in years just appeared on the Xbox 360 and PS3, but this game just doesn’t feel the same in comparison. Of course, with the Wii controller it shouldn’t – but it also shouldn’t leave me guessing half the time as to where my ball is going.
  3. If you did buy it last year you won’t find anything here that makes it worth spending your money again.
