  1. The game’s visuals aren’t as drastically improved as other EA Sports titles but there are enough graphical nuances and tweaks to make it worthwhile.

    A nice addition to any 360 library, but probably not worth upgrading to if you already own the current-gen edition of Tiger 06. [Jan 2006, p.149]
  3. Official Xbox Magazine

    It's graphically below par (shouldn't they be over par?), but the gameplay is so smartly evolved that it's $60 well spent. [Jan 2006, p.81]
  4. I am extremely happy with the direction that EA is taking this series, and if EA brings back the real time calendar, course creator, and adds many more courses and options, this may tie up my gaming time between rounds of real golf.
  5. The level of detail in the courses is outstanding, as are most of the player models, but it only features half the number of courses and a less involved career mode.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 on Xbox 360 makes a couple of sacrifices - okay, it makes quite a lot. But we gain from those sacrifices; more challenges, the game is a lot harder and more rewarding for it, while the graphics are out of this world.
  7. While Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 for Xbox 360 is missing many of the features that round out the game on current-gen platforms and the PC, what remains is a challenging, enjoyable game of golf that, in some ways, exceeds the more fleshed-out versions.
  8. A better looking and a smarter, more serious golfing experience than any other console title to date.
  9. While it is a lot prettier than the other console versions, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 for the Xbox 360 feels like a rushed production that plays well enough but still not up to the standards of the new console.
  10. 76
    While not a breathtaking golf presentation, Tiger Woods 06 does a good job of establishing it’s dominance on the 360.
  11. Golf fans will eat the title up and love doing it, but for the casual player, it may be too lacking in its final product.

    This game is not as bad as people make it out to be. The game is extremely easy to beat. I'd turn off the "Gamebreaker" gauge if you are This game is not as bad as people make it out to be. The game is extremely easy to beat. I'd turn off the "Gamebreaker" gauge if you are playing a career. It makes Hole-in ones and albatrosses, extremely easy. I have about 20 of each through my first year on the tour. The ball doesn't roll truely like it did in 2005, but it's still a good game nonetheless. Plus, it took a while for me to get used to the new controls, but once you do it's easy. This game will definitely keep me busy until baseball comes out or Splinter Cell. Full Review »

    bot this for the 360 and was expecting more of the same from the last xbox version. I was sooo disappointed. The graphics are pretty but this bot this for the 360 and was expecting more of the same from the last xbox version. I was sooo disappointed. The graphics are pretty but this looks and feels like a pc game with tiny sprites/icons that are unpleasing to the eye. The putting is new and I hate it. Gone are the caddy tips and now it's your best guess. This game was sooo rushed and it shows. So for golf I am still playing the old xbox version Tiger. Rent this first and save your cash!
