I ended last year's review by saying, "I don't know how this game can possibly get any better, but I look forward to seeing EA try to best this almost-flawless installment, and what is arguably the best version of PGA Tour in the history of the franchise.". Well, somehow they did manage to best their previous efforts, so I will let that statement and challenge conclude this year's review as I return to the links for another year of great virtual golf.
This is the best Tiger so far without a doubt. I love the new swing mechanic, and putting is great as well. If you make a bad shot, you really feel as if it were your fault and not the games. The graphics have been completely revamped, and the new look is terrific, with grass blowing in the wind, moving clouds, streaming sunshine, and the crowds now look quite colorful and much more realistic. There is a noticeable decrease in overall resolution, which I'm guessing is due to hardware limitations, and which creates a perfect argument for new consoles. I don't care much for the kinect feature, it is just too cumbersome for me, but you may like it. I have no problem at all paying for extra courses, because well, I want lots of extra courses!! Overall just a great and super fun game.
Thanks to the new swing setup, I've had more fun playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 than any previous entry in the series. By putting the onus on you to think like a real golfer and execute every shot, PGA Tour 13 makes successful play more rewarding than ever before and gives you the closest possible feeling to mastering a world-class golf course in real life.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is still the best golf simulator for sale. The video game is deeply playable and offers a wide range of options which make the game very similar to the real sport. The perfect adaption with Kinect allows to enjoy a realistic experience and makes it the best sport video game for this device. Tiger Woods Legacy is a very funny and spectacular mode in which can be lived again the best golf player ever's career.
There's no denying that this year's edition plays a good game of golf, and the changes to the game's core systems are well-judged - but they're arguably not enough to make it worth buying again for anyone but the most ardent fan of the sport. While the likes of FIFA have made clear progress in recent iterations, it's hard to see what benefit there is to having a Tiger game every year.
Easily the best golf game I have ever played. The controls are challenging when you first pick it up but with some practice they become very intuitive. You can actually feel when you mis-hit a shot but when you hit a great shot it is very rewarding (just like real golf!). You actually feel excitement when you play well, I was playing in a tournament with my player and managed to get my first hole-in-one and I literally jumped up off the couch and pumped my fist. The my player mode is amazing with you starting out as an amateur and working your way up to the PGA tour, with a chance to play the Master's as a amateur. Tiger mode is fun and mixes up the challenges. If you've enjoyed any Tiger Woods games in the past you should definitely pick this one up.
My buddy and I rock Tiger Woods PGA 11 all the time. It's an incredibly fun game, and it's very user-friendly. You don't have to learn how to play PGA 11. You get better at using the advanced controls, but you don't have to spend hours learning how to play the game. THIS GAME, on the other hand, PGA Tour 13, is a pain in the a** to play. The controls feel far too complicated and the game just doesn't feel right..
Coming from last playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008, this game is an utter failure. It seems like this game is made for the people who really aren't serious about golf, or those who don't know about in-depth mechanics of golf. Being able to deck a driver out of a plugged fairway bunker? I don't think that's very possible. Tutorials are taught when you stumble upon actions in the game. They're not all introduced whenever you begin the game, nor is there an obligatory tutorial. Not to mention the putting is insanely touchy, and all the unnecessary things added. Club selection is dull, contains just about the same amount of selection as Tiger Woods 2008. There are no shot modes, nor can you gauge how far you're actually swinging the club. This isn't worth the rent if you're looking for the old simulation that golf games used to be. Golden Tee goes more in-depth than this.
SummarySwing Tempo - For the 1st time in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR history, the tempo and speed of your swing is going to directly influence the power of your shot. Fast tempo will add more distance to shots. Slow tempo will result in less distance. Shot Setup – Create all possible shot types from one shot setup. Drag your aiming marker forward and ...
