    If you've fallen out with the series, then this may be the best reason in years to return. [Issue#108, p.110]

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters doesn't do anything wrong but doesn't have enough daring innovative features to make much of a difference. It's by far the best golfing sim out there, but it doesn't manage to warm our hearts.

    Ultimately, we tapped in for par what should have been a birdie – the best description we can come up with for Tiger Woods 12.

    Tiger '12 is the best PGA Tour in years and would be the last Tiger you'd ever need if EA didn't cleverly omit the caddy's off switch.

    In the end, The Masters is, in the purest sense, a golf simulator. It does not require extensive practice, nor does it have enough to entice people who have no interest in the sport. For those that do, however, your devotion will be greatly rewarded.

    Despite its solid on-course action, this franchise is starting to show its age. [May 2011, p.79]

    EA Tiburon may collect a handful of inexperienced fans with this release, but it'll lose a whole lot more from the other end of the scale. [Issue#71, p.78]

    Not an improved enough game to warrant your hard earned money. When will EA improve the crowds across all of their sports games?

    Not an improved enough game to warrant your hard earned money. When will EA improve the crowds across all of their sports games?
    When will EA stop holding back completed courses as DLC?
    When you stop buying this kind of stuff. When you take your money elsewhere. RENT.
