  • Summary: The next generation of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR delivers higher-fidelity physics models that allow the ball when struck to interact more realistically with the clubface and terrain, resulting in more realistic ball flight and bounces. Advanced lighting techniques provide a much better sense of terrain undulation and the contours make giving players the ability to realistically interpret approach shots or a crucial putt on a rolling green.

  1. 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]
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. The ability to change and edit the voice of your customized character is a wonderful feature that really adds for a very unique game experience for each player.
  5. There aren't enough courses - six feels more like an appetizer than a gourmet feast - and no obvious expectation of future additions via Xbox Live.
  6. For fans of Tiger-style golf, you’ll probably be tied between which versions of the game to play; the Xbox version is more feature-rich, but the 360 version looks worlds better.

    While an online mode does help alleviate some of the issues found in the single-player game, the severe lack of content makes it really hard to justify a purchase.

    This game plays like a hot knife through butter, fast and seameless. The graphics are kickin' and the golf is as true to life as yet provided in a golf game. Collapse

    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. Expand

    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! Expand
