  • Summary: Tiger Woods 06 pits you against Tiger Woods in a battle to be the best golfer of all time. You can play golf greats in their own eras on their terms to prove that you are the best ever. Tiger Woods 06 includes greater shot control and a "gamebreaker" meter that models the momentum of professional golf competition. You can play on 15 courses, both licensed and fantastical. "Game face" features return to let you customize a character and take him or her through an entire 52-week PGA season. Tiger Woods 06 also adds more multiplayer modes and capabilities. Expand

  1. Other than the sound, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06 does everything needed to help give the franchise a breath of fresh air. It's nice to see that EA Sports can do more than just throw in one new play or change one part of a game.

    This year's Tiger feels more complex and sophisticated than ever. Putting is more challenging (e.g., total bitch)... Yet, the game is still accessible to armchair golfers, thanks to those welcome arcade-y touches.
  3. Easily the best golf game to date on a console. The gameplay is solid and has been refined over the years. The course selection is great, and the Tiger Proofing adds more to those courses.
  4. For years I've been saying that the only significant problem with the Tiger games is the putting interface. So what did they do this year? They made putting harder by removing caddy tips and employing the same analog swing interface as tee shots.
  5. A great game, but telling you this is a must have title is just silly. While the game is extremely well done, there is just not enough here to warrant adding another Tiger game to your collection.
  6. 06 is the same golf game you played last year with only a few updates and changes that make no real difference and keep the gameplay basically the same.
  7. The new so called additions only result in a new way to exploit an aging game engine that has suffered from day one.

    06 deserves a 3 because it's mildy worse than last years game and is full price after minor tweaks. They really shouldn't have taken out the custom soundtrack from 2005. Get ready to listen to more lame 'ea trax'. Expand

    This series has ran its course, far too easy just boring.

    EA drops the ball on another '06 game. The graphics are only mildly improved, but seem fuzzier. Not everyone has an HD TV. You can't skip cut scenes, the putting is insanely easy, the commentary quite often has nothing to do with what just happened, the shot caller feature is missing basic things such as long drive and closest to the pin, the menus are clunky, and the selection of equipment seems much worse. Anyone who has actually played a real round of Golf knows that putts are not automatic and shots don't always go straight. EA has created this odd in between area where the game isn't quite arcade and it isn't quite sim. What does this mean? It means it is quite boring. There is very little sense of accomplishment to anything. '03 remains the best version yet. Even last years '05 was far more fun than this years version. Expand

    A slightly tweaked game with identical graphics from 4 years ago. EA are ripping people off with this game. Lazy, lazy programming.

    EA dropped the ball, the game is worse than ever, you can't fast forward the some of the cut scenes, graphics are the same, menus look way worse, characters are more annoying. The only way to play this game and not shoot under par is to turn off power boost, turn off the spin button, and max out all the tiger proofing settings. Even then you almost have to try to miss a fairway. For anyone interested, buy TW '03, its the same game.... and you get the Predator, best fantasy course of all time. Expand
