    I love this game. Granted I haven't played it since the 07 version, but I really like the way you increase your player's stats and online is addicting. Look out for Geezer McGee on the course!!

    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.

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

    This Game is Sweet, I got this and the wii version, and I play this version when I don't feel like getting off the couch. Real tournaments rock, I'll be playing in the U.S. open this week!

    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. That being said, the single player tournaments are probably the best they've ever been, with variable weather 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.

    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 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

  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.
