Wii Sports golf, while being very basic showed that the controller was more than capable of coping with a game of this nature. I've had my Wii since release and still play Wii sports a great deal, I'm still amazed by the way in which the controller detects the subtlest of movements accurately.
Being a huge fan of the TW franchise I ignored all the poor reviews and bought it anyway. I have to say that I do enjoy playing TW on the Wii, but when in the middle of a 72 hole tournament with a lead of just a few shots, I want to throw the controller out of the window when I watch what should have been a very simple gentle putt go flying past the hole, or a weak powered drive take off as I start my backswing!!! It's a shame because it is not the fault of the controller but the game.
When Nintendo got the swing mechanism so right in Wii Sports Golf, why did EA insist on changing it??? Just bought Pangya Golf and while the control mechanism is better than TW, it is still not a patch on Wii Sports!
I've given the game 4 stars because I do genuinely enjoy it and I've learned to deal with the irritations of the control system, but lets face it, you should be able to relax when playing a game (especially golf!), not constantly being vigilant to avoid the irregularities!
Just found out that TW 2008 is out soon, I only hope that EA listen to their consumers and change the control mechanism.
