    Toughie, this. Plump for Wii for gameplay but PS3 and 360 if you're into visuals/online. [Aug 2010, p.92]
  2. The eleventh installment in EA's Tiger Woods golfing franchise is yet another competent installment like the games that preceded it. New features, such as the true aim gameplay mechanic, work great but they're not fully implemented throughout the game. Some features are available offline but not online. Some features aren't available in the career mode. A solid but not fully realized addition to the series.
  3. This version of Tiger Woods seems to have become something of a victim of its own success and the result is that the game is very, very similar to that of last years game.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is a first class golfing game but lacks innovation and major improvements. EA Tiburon could have done a better job on this one.
  5. This is the 13th entry in the Tiger Woods franchise and it isn't the worst by any stretch of the imagination. But, while some of the ideas brought to the table freshen up the formula a little bit, it still feels like another revolution rather than reinventing the wheel.
  6. The additions and changes might not be a complete success, but the game's gentle rhythm and solid fundamentals are just as oddly compelling as they ever were.

    One simple tweak solves a few years of hurt, though trademark trouble areas still exist. [Issue#61, p.94]
  8. Even if this Tiger Woods does the bare minimum, it stays classy and shows strong basics.

    Tiger's looking a bit tired. [Aug 2010, p.107]

    Sadly, this is the second year in a row that the Tiger series has been light on upgrades. [Sept 2010, p.79]

    I'll start with the negatives. Firstly, as is always the case with EA Sports titles, very little has really changed from previous versions andI'll start with the negatives. Firstly, as is always the case with EA Sports titles, very little has really changed from previous versions and as far as I'm concerned you only need buy one Tiger Woods game per console generation. Secondly it is still too arcade orientated (and easy, scores of better than 15 under par are normal) for those of us wanting a proper simulation and finally, despite Links featuring the option ten years ago, there is still no course editor/designer to be found.

    Having said all that the Tiger Woods series is now the only real option for golf fans. The presentation and gameplay, including the analogue swing control introduced back in the PS2 days, are of the highest quality and I certainly spent many an enjoyable hour attempting the games online* and offline challenges.

    *Online challenges now unavailable as the EA servers have been switched off.

The previews are all bad........ the putting has become impossible... the putting previews work about four times then quit, on several holes the only clubs you're allowed are twice what you need and you can't really cut down on the percentage of power in this one..... options are hard to locate and worthless in some cases.... very discouraging, in general.

I myself haven't played a Tiger Woods gold game since the early noughties, and I needed a game I could chill out to following some surgery.
    I bought this game and found it to be truly amazing graphically, and the gameplay was slightly difficult but had a decent learning curve which didn't take too long to master. Some nice touches like the focus metre, and the online is fairly slick and a joy to play.
