    If you like golf, this is certainly the best game.

    Making structural changes can go a long way for a game. Tiger 12 certainly does this, but there are still a couple hiccups that get in the way. This year's model is the best on the console, and it's that way because of what it's using from the other versions – namely the PGA Tour structure and the Masters. But like a local pro playing on the same greens as Tiger, it can't keep up the pace shot for shot.

    Tiger Woods does not really change year after year, but PGA Tour 12 is still the best golf simulation on the Wii.

    Tiger Woods 12 for the Wii remains the golf sim of choice for motion-controller fans because of its accurate swing mechanics and the addition of the legendary Masters.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 is the latest and best game in the series. More, it is also the best golf simulation on the Wii. The great amount of game modes, the good gameplay and the useful caddie are the major advantages of the game.

    Doesn't play much different than last year's game, but the additions of a more fleshed out career mode focused around the long-awaited Masters Tournament, and a caddie system that welcomes new players round out the game more.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters confirms all the strengths of the series, with accurate controls (thanks to the MotionPlus attachment) and lots of game modes.

    Lacking only an RPG mode and the option to wander off into the woods and play a Duck Hunt minigame. [Apr 2011, p.55]

    A subtle refinement of an already solid offering.

    The best in the series. But the relatively modest step forward means it's not necessarily a crucial purchase if you already own last year's version. [Apr 2011, p.84]

    A fantastic golf offering. The implementation of The Masters into the game is flawless and brings more realism to the overall package. While the visuals are not some of the best that you will find on the Wii, the game more than makes up for it in other areas.

    This is THE version of the game to own. Flicking an analog stick cannot compare to actually swinging the Wii remote. There is a wide variety of difficulty options so players of all skill level can play. There is also a wide variety of courses and scoring options to add to replay value. My kids love the mini golf game. Full Review »

    If you are sick of the same game for xbox and ps3 like me then you will love this one. I play it with my girlfriend and she loves it too. It is very easy to pickup and play. I'm 2 weeks in and now its time to up the difficulty(it can become a little too easy at times). Graphics and unlockables bring it down to an 8, otherwise this is one of the best titles I have played on the Wii. Since this release my 360 actually this time around has been collecting dust.
