Fantastic But Patience,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13: Masters Collector's Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
To start with i pre-ordered with amazon and got it a day early Thank you.
The Tiger woods game has over the ears become the same old story with added courses and no new insentives. This addition has been revamped for the better it has obviously been changed to get the gamer back into enjoying what the tiger woods franchise was all about.
The Gameplay is fantastic the changes to the swing operation are far more superior then other games. You can now alter stance of your player for those shots around trees and dig deeper under the ball in the bunker just to get it out. The swing dynamics are much better and add mre realisim to the game. It takes getting used to but a few holes in and your off hitting birdies and close approach shots.
The presentation of the course are not as good as previos but still add great atmosphere to the gameplay the commentary as always is one liners not always talking about your shot but really unnoticable when your playing.
Other features include Tiger legacy starting from tiger in nappies to future competitions its good fun but isn't really what the game is bought for.
Multiplayer is always good straight into a game not much time waiting and its simple to get going and enjoying the competition.
Country club is another feature something different to earn points but unless you have many friends on xbox live quite pointless unless you want to have head to head trials with people unknown.
All these features give you coins which you need to collect to play and master new courses it is very long so you get your moneys worth unless you want to just purchase through microsoft points another EA money grabbing scheme. The challenges are not impossible just making birdies and grenns to fairways in regulation its great fun and gives an insentive to keep playing and bettering your score.
he biggest new feature it can all be done through Kinect this is where patience is required its fantastic fun and you feel like you need to swing properly to hit a good shot but its very sensitive trying to aim is so slow you feel like giving up and adding spin is the same menus are so fickly that you end up in the wrong menu and have to grab the controller to correct it quicker that said it has voice commands to change club and aim shot but aiming still needs your input.
Overall fantastic its clear EA have thought about this one to get people back in the game the challenges and course mastery will keep you playing however the kinect side could use an update to help with menu navigation and aiming your shot. Give it ago you wont be disappointed but have patience you cant get up and make 20under rounds like previos but its rewarding in its own way.
