Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

While Electronic Arts’ other sports games may be locked in a deadly rivalry with their competitors there really hasn’t been a golf sim to go head-to-head with Tiger Woods for years. There doesn’t seem to be too much laurel sitting going on though, especially since this is, like many Electronic Arts games this year, the first time the game has been designed specifically with the next generation of consoles in mind. Naturally that means the most realistic graphics yet, not only for the course itself but also for Tiger and the other real-world golfers. Their faces and expressions look totally life-like and on the PS3 and 360 you can use a webcam or digital camera to import your own face and graft it to your own in-game custom golfer.

In terms of gameplay the major new feature is the concept of "shot confidence" which monitors your performance through your whole career, adding an extra degree of tension to difficult shots but also allowing you to examine your game in detail to find out where you’re going right and wrong. After criticisms that last year’s game was a bit thin on options this new game has the greatest number of courses ever including Westchester Country Club, TPC Boston, Cog Hill and East Lake. There’s also the expanded GamerNet mode which acts like a sort of YouTube just for the game, allowing you post in-game videos and challenge other people to a game in an online world dedicated to nothing but golf.

Product Description

You`re facing a long putt for par on the 17th hole with Tiger Woods clinging to a one stroke lead. You`ve been in this position before, but that doesn`t matter now. Or does it? Whether you play it safe or go for broke, Play with Confidence in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 08. The all-new Shot Confidence feature uses factors from your previous rounds--including club selection, lie, hole, and More--to determine your confidence heading into each shot. Play with the confidence of a pro as you battle the best golfers from the PGA TOUR and LPGA Tour on the most courses ever in your quest for the coveted FedEx Cup Championship.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hate-Love Relationship.... 3 Mar 2008
By >KārK<
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I hate golf. I find it boring, long-winded and pointless. Its only redeeming features are the open air and the occasional murmur of nearby fauna. So imagine my surprise when, having acquired a shiny new Nintendo Wii, I became profoundly addicted to the Wii Sports golf game!

As other reviewers have mentioned, playing the same 9 holes over again is not so much boring as frustratingly limited, and I soon felt the urge to take my living-room golfing career to a new level. Bratz and Barbies are not exactly my cup of tea, so Panya Golf was of course out of the question, and I sought a more realistic, professional style of game. The most obvious option (and most likely the safest bet) was Tiger Woods 08. Fortunately I was not disappointed...

The first thing that struck me was of course the graphical realism compared Wii Sports. Ahh... I can almost smell that country air and freshly-mown grass. These highly-detailed graphics do tend to cause juddery images all too frequently, but that is more down to hardware than software. This also accounts for the lack of visible spectators (they cheer a lot, but are nowhere to be seen) but I don't wanna be looking at people anyway. The second thing that struck me was the rather unintuitive menu system, which uses the "-" button to backtrack through the options, whereas "B" would seem the obvious choice, and a cumbersome zig-zag layout of the icons. Still, it doesn't take long to get used to. Only Nintendo can make 100% user-friendly user interfaces, so EA can be forgiven for not quite hitting the mark here.

Gameplay-wise, EA have come up with ALMOST exactly what I was looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total addictive fun 13 Sep 2007
By R. Mann
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, so what do i know about serious gaming? Afterall, I'm just a girl who hasn't owned a games console since the fading days of the PS1, but this game is great. I don't much care whether the graphics are up there with the XBox 360 or PS3 - I want a game that's both playable, feels reasonably authentic to my experience of real-life golf, is fun and challenging. This game ticks all the boxes in relation to these criteria. Seriously addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars The more sophisticated Wii sport golf 3 Sep 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like most people of the wii world i love wii sports golf. But having played the same 9 holes countless times, i wanted more. Having read lots of reviews of '07 i wasn't disapointed by '08.
The swing takes a tiny little bit of getting used to but once you do, through the tutorial at the beginning you realise that it is much better and more realistic. The putting action is very smooth, although sometimes gravity forgets to work when i'm putting and it doesn't go into the hole, but maybe thats just my bad putting.
With a wide variety of courses and mini games that are really good fun (especially the mini-putt), this game is defiantely for those who want a good game of golf on the wii.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lacking Online Mode 9 Sep 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is fantastic. Play some of the best golf course in the world in your living room and actually swing the club. Picks up the wiimote really well, when you swing, your character swings. The graphics aren't the best but this game is so playable. Really lacks an online mode though, not sure why ea left this out on the wii, that's the only let down though

5.0 out of 5 stars Why is everyone so derogatory? 4 Sep 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Im fed up of reading people saying "not as good as the XBox" or "not as good as the PS". For goodness sake, theyre having to start again, its almost like the first ever Tiger game, which was hopeless. EA have done well and Tiger 08 is great. If you take your time and concentrate, you can get the hang of hitting it straight in no time.

I really enjoy playing Tiger 08, its great fun, and the graphics are good, ok not brilliant, but good enough to see whats going on.

I hope people stop being so pathetic, get on with it, and enjoy the game as much as I have!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good game even for non sports fans 18 Sep 2007
By Matt
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I got Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 to compliment my new Wii, and I've been really enjoying the game a lot. It uses the Wiimote really well, and the connection between your offscreen and onscreen actions manages to give the enhanced feeling of realism the Wii's controls are about. I'm not normally a sports game or golf fan, however having enjoyed PGA games on 16-Bit consoles and small golf games on mobile phones and the web, PGA Tour 08 offers a similarly accessible experience. The controls can take a few attempts to master, but a good tutorial takes you through that. Once a trained golfer, you can customise your player and get involved in a career or a challenge-based game. There's certainly enough content here to keep you going for a while, and with multiplayer available, if you tried and liked Wii Sports but want something with a little more substance, this is a great game to get.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Tiger Woods game yet 16 Sep 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When I got my Wii, I eagerly awaited the release of TW07--it was good--using the wiimote as a club worked quite well, but the controls seemed a bit twitchy, both in menus and also rarely when swinging the 'club'.

TW08 is really what 07 should have been--yes the graphics are less than stellar, but they are significantly better than 07. The wiimote as golf club more than makes up for any missing graphical bliss--even my non-golfing friends that have seen this thought it would be fun. 08 also dropped the fantasy courses from 07 and added some more real courses--the missing fantasy ones are not a great loss to me, they were generally ridiculously difficult and a major obstacle for me completing the PGA tour portion of the game.
