    Of all the boasting and promises the game still isnt up to par. Yes, it is just about the only golf game out there. So, besides that point, it is a great golf game. Either a bug, or the way the developers meant it to be, but putting flat out sucks. I can easily blast the ball off the tee and hit near my target, my short game, putting, and accuracy are all 8/10. And yet I cannot even make Of all the boasting and promises the game still isnt up to par. Yes, it is just about the only golf game out there. So, besides that point, it is a great golf game.

And yet I cannot even make a 10ft uphill putt without the ball passing the hole at a high rate of speed. Sure, die hard Tiger Woods fans may be able to find a trick. But the fact is putting does not work as advertised. A good renter. Expand

    Great to have the weather back (they used to have it in earlier versions, not sure why it went away), and the courses look better than ever, but the commentating has gone from decent to absolutely horrible. Its the first time in 8 years that I've turned it off.

  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.
