    My score may look cruel, but it's deserved. There are very few improvements from the mediocre showing last year. The graphics are really starting to show their age. The main change is to putting, but it's not an improvement on the previous system. It feels like change for the sake of change. Quite frankly, I'm also sick of all the EA items and icons everywhere.

The main change is to putting, but it's not an improvement on the previous system. It feels like change for the sake of change. Quite frankly, I'm also sick of all the EA items and icons everywhere. All that does is make us feel like we're playing a game from an evil corporation (which may or may not be true). Really this could have been some dl content for tw09. It's far from worth it's asking price. Expand

  1. Crucially, however, the game itself remains almost completely unchanged, the creative inertia all the more noticeable given the radical overhaul the series enjoyed over the course of its 2008 and 2009 incarnations.
  2. The new putting system and the US Open add some great new challenges for fans of the series, giving them plenty of reason to invest.
  3. The best golf game that an MS console has ever seen. Could still use a few engine tweak, however.
