    PGA Tour 2K21 is almost a hole in one on the PlayStation 4 and is definitely one of the best golfing games in years! Kudos to the developers and 2K for creating something fun, addictive and quite memorable!

    PGA TOUR 2K21 is definitely not perfect yet, but it is absolutely vivacious. The physics are one of 2K21's strong points and although it's lacking a story mode, PGA Tour 2K21 successfully keeps triggering players to continue playing. And when the game releases later this week, I hope you will all join my Society: Wonderspons International.

    PGA Tour 2K21 offers a good simulation experience that, despite some noticeable absence in both roster and tournaments, would definitely delight golf fans.

    A very good start PGA Tour's second life. Despite some minor issues, the game hits the hot spot between simulation and accessibility.
  5. PGA Tour 2K21 delivers an excellent simulation of my favourite physical pastime, and I expect I’ll continue to come back to it whenever I’m blocked from the real thing by weather, winter, or a pandemic. However, I’m also anxious for this new series to blossom into a more polished and full-featured golf experience. And, given HB Studios’ provenance, I can’t help but hope one day to see a Canadian course or two (perhaps Inverness’ famed Cabot Cliffs?) make the official course roster.

    On the golf course, PGA Tour 2K21 is a fairly fun game. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the game modes. The career is way too simple, and even the online does not offer anything exciting. Graphics and sounds are decent, but could be vastly improved.

    In between some of the most frustrating moments I’ve had with any sort of game in quite some time, PGA Tour 2K21 flashed with hopeful, brilliant optimism. As long as it worked, hitting the links and knocking down a few holes felt as good as it ever has. And the course creator is one of the best things I’ve seen come to a sports game in a long time. But it’s hard to recommend something that chewed up and spit out nearly a day of my life, leaving me with nothing to show for it. Either way, it’s without question that the newly invigorated, and now former, Golf Club series is sitting at the base of a mountain made from potential. Though, it may be a hell of a climb getting to the peak.

    For golf lovers, it is great. Especially cool for an evening game with club lovers like you. The graphics are excellent, the gameplay is decent.

It's not tiger woods arcade style play. McIlroy golf game was not good. The golf club games were not great. This mixes the 2 and is a great game. Its tiger woods mixed with golf club games. Looks like tiger woods games but has the realism of the golf club games. You cant control spin mid shot. You need to plan your shots before swinging the club. Which to me actually makes it better. Its half real and half arcade. Well done and the creations course is really well.done. If you're looking for the total arcade style playing (spin mid air, have a ball that makes your play better etc you may be dissapointed) but if you're looking for a solid real golf game, this is it. Well done 2k. You guys made a mess of nba and wwe games...you made up for that here

    Lots of clothes and clubs...I would give this game a 10 if they added celebrations like the woods games had

    Really fun game and a much needed new Golf game to play. Career mode is is really fun but there is some work to do. For a 2k game it seemsReally fun game and a much needed new Golf game to play. Career mode is is really fun but there is some work to do. For a 2k game it seems like the career mode could definitely be deeper. Gameplay is very fun and realistic and the graphics are very good. Looking forward to hopefully seeing more of these games just hoping they continue to add on to career mode Expand

But along comes PGA 2k21 to make things even again.

    All in all, it's a solid title: the gameplay is decent, the difficulty customisation makes it very easy to enter the scene or play like a pro, and the pick-up-and-play factor is far and away one of the most accessible in any recent sports game.

    The cons come in the heart and soul. The career mode is lifeless, with your character playing through the course, seeing their trophy pop up on screen, then on to the next one. Where Tiger Woods PGA (the only comparable option) had heart and soul in its retro modes, customisable celebrations and catchphrases, and an overall depth in its career, this just feels slapped together. You could have had interviews, or sponsorships with real ramifications (good and bad), or even rivalry systems with dialogue. I understand that this is supposed to be the start of a new era, but if you're comparing between the career mode of, say, NBA 2k17, the experience here is lacklustre at best. Add to that the VERY limited customisation options, and the fact that the clothes and gear don't really add anything substantial, and you have a technically brilliant and easy to play game that doesn't really make a dent in terms of wanting to pick it up and go, when there are so many other sports games at the same price that will immerse you in their world.

    More Adam Scott than Tiger Woods, if you catch my drift.

I got it on special in a PS4 sale. I have read many reviews, but agree most with the reviewer that describes the game as LAZY. It seems every year HB trots out another version of the game at full price, for what is hardly even an upgrade. OnLine Golf Games peaked in 2007 with TW2007 and while graphics have improved marginally, the online experience has gone backwards. 2K21 just rehashes previous versions of The Golf Club. Menus are similar, courses similar, societies, etc, etc etc. it is just LAZY and $$$ grabbing. I am not even going to criticize the ball and swing dynamics, i am happy with that. it is just the lack of anything NEW. Graphics are way behind what is possible for a PS4 and loading times are slow. On line play is very slow and the game should be renamed Quitters Golf, there is no penalty or statistic to hinder players quitting after they score a bad hole. Expand
