    For me, this has been the deepest and most rewarding Tiger Woods PGA Tour title I’ve ever played.

    This iteration is a stellar continuation of the series – plus an offer for a free year of Golf World or Golf Digest to sweeten the deal for aficionados – but there’s room for expansion (including an LPGA event was good step!), rather than improvement.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is obviously geared towards serious golfers who appreciate the history of their favorite past time. Of course, these are the people who pre-ordered the game and are already playing it. But with the changes focused on golf’s illustrious history and gameplay changes favoring more elaborate shot shaping, one can make the argument that more casual gamers aren’t purchasing a wholly new experience this year.

    Longtime fans of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series should not miss out on this 2014 installment, as nearly every change and enhancement is meant to cater to their every desire. New players may be frustrated with the higher standard of difficulty and the presentation has become worn and dated, but there is no question that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is, despite being the only one, the best golf simulation yet to date.

    Better mechanics, a deep historical mode, expanded online capabilities, and multi-gender careers highlight a huge game with much to offer its fans. However, it’s difficult to view its desire to exact even more money after purchase by offering enticing course content as payable DLC that directly impacts your ability to play core modes of the game as anything but questionable.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is the best golf game on consoles but is far from being perfect, with few additions to the formula that introduce new problems. The game needs a deep reboot to shine again!

    This year's effort comprises a lot of recycled, poorly implemented and buggy content, some of which is locked behind a pay-to-bypass grind wall. You can't charge 50 quid for that. [Issue#97, p.68]

    Finally a golf game you can sink your teeth into with a proper simulation mode. What they have done with draws/fades, penal roughs, and smooth putting finally makes you feel like you are in between the ropes of the PGA Tour. The Connected Tournaments add much needed life to live tourneys allowing you to play either with a group of friends or strangers. Graphics are improved, the Legends are a nice historical add-on including the ability to play the Augusta National course as it was in 1934. This version has the potential to be the best TW game ever in it's run going back to PS1 days. A must purchase for the golf fan, the simulation fan, or anyone with an interest in getting away from blowing things up and just having a nice relaxing stroll with some friends. Collapse

    This game is real fun if your a golf fan. It copies the game modes of NBA 2k 12 by delving into the history of golf which is interesting information and visually appealing to experience. It falls just a tad short because it doesn't actually PLAY any differently regardless of how the clubs are named.

    All the standard modes are back from the last 75 Tiger Woods games so it does feel a bit "samey" and like they are running out of ideas with what to do

    Career Mode is still way too easy to become number 1 at and the Fed Ex cup ranking is a joke because realistically golfers win 2 or 3 tournaments a year but your created golfer can win tons.

    Winning tournaments ti unlock gear is kinda fun but does away with making money through the season interesting at all. Since you don't buy your gear with money made from tournaments, the money is irrelevant now

    Online play is cool but to not include courses that are part of the 2013 season without paying an extra fee seems like a cheap moneygrab and makes it seem like an unfinished game as my created golfer had to repeat a course or skip it all together which is frustrating,

    What I really want in these Tiger Woods games is the chance to play and watch computer controlled players that are part of my tee time for each individual round. It would make the game feel less lonely offline and make you feel part of a tour of players more than just one guy goin around a course.

    If my tee time is scheduled with Mickelson and Poulter, I want to have to option to play the round with them as NPC's dang it

    All in all though it is fun enough and buying a Tiger Woods game once every 2 or 3 years isnt a bad idea

    Minimal Upgrade over Tiger Woods 13. They added night golf, big deal. Threw a sepia tone over St. Andrews and called it Historical Mode. Added Simulation mode which is the same as last year's controls except you move your joystick diagonal instead of vertically. Added a a few new courses. Online play is riddled with bugs such as wrong stats, bad camera angles, no tags showing who is shooting. There is no new commentary. It's not worth 60 or 70 bucks. Expand
