= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
Having brought last year's offered from EA sports on the basis that the Ryder Cup was included I was a bit dubious about buying what is often just an annual update.
Any such reluctance was soon washed clean away when the inclusion of perhaps the Holy Grail of any golf game was announced, that being the addition of Augusta and the Masters.
From the moment Tiger Woods 12 loads it is clear that this in not just an update from last year's game with a little touch here and a little touch there, this really does feel like a totally new game. Some features still remain such as XP points and gameface however; new challenges in the road to the Maters offer a totally new playing experience.
The presentation just adds to the atmosphere, with TV style graphics, new camera angles and improved music all contributing. All the courses played so far look amazing, although more work could perhaps be done to improve the crowds but that is a minor point.
I had thought of trading in last year's offering to save a little bit of cash but am glad I didn't as I now feel that I have two totally different golf games each offering something different.
