EA and Tiger Woods 13 pushes the limit to what gamers are prepared to accept in terms of a one off payment for a game, to the point where this year's incarnation gives the gamer starting out little to pick from but lots to pay for. Of the 36 courses on offer there are only 17 available to play.
Of the courses that are locked you can pay to play a round of golf on them. One round will either cost you 6000 in game coins (earned as you play, 6000 coins will take about 7-8 rounds of 18 holes to gain) or you can pay one pound 59 of real money to play one round of 18 holes on that course. To unlock the course outright takes a large task of completing a set of objectives at that course (paying for rounds so you can complete them). Alternatively you can unlock unlimited play at one course for 18,000 coins (the earnings of about 20-25 rounds of 18). Unlocking eleven of the locked courses can be paid for at around thirty two pounds (or for the pretty much unobtainable 150,000 coins). Put basically it will take a large investment of your time to unlock courses.
Additionally, pin packs (in game boosts) can be bought for a large sum of in game coins or again for real money. As an example if you were just starting out a 15 pin pack would cost nearly four pounds with a 4-5 rounds of 18 at an unlocked course to afford.Read more ›
There is a glich in the graphics as the ball you have played is coming to a rest, sometimes the screen freezes momentarily then jumps to where the ball has stopped. Unacceptable really on a high end games console.
On the plus side it was easy to learn the club swinging technique.
As we already have Tiger Woods 2008 I dont think this upgrade was necessary if you have previous generation games.
This means that 75% of the content is unplayable and you cannot access over half of the courses, as none of the downloadable courses are possible to get under any circumstances whatsoever. The course mastery feature does not work. You cannot purchase any of the additional content and you cannot earn any of it either no matter how many "coins" you try to spend - they are simply not available.
I contacted EA support about this (and spoke to a golfist as well, oddly enough) and she agreed with me that this is unacceptable. Even if you go for the full career mode (Road to the PGA tour) you are locked out of over half the courses - 19 of them - forever, and therefore cannot play those tournaments. If EA are going to go down this route then they need to give away the DLC once they shut the servers down. Never again will I buy anything at all involving paid for downloadable content from EA - you will end up losing access when they switch off the servers, and they are all now off on this and all earlier versions. I am told (but cannot confirm) that the TW14 servers are now also off and only the Rory McIlroy one works (for now, as presumably these will also be turned off as soon as the next version is released. Stick to TW08 on the PC - at least you can get extra courses for that version.
Another huge issue is that on this version you cannot save your created golfist & take to a friends house for head to head either.
The career mode of Tiny Tiger to Older tiger is fun
The point people make about buying courses - well if you play the game enough you get the gold coins after each round of golf usually 600 per 18 holes in career mode, you also earn gold coins joining a country club and if you play connected on-line 4 days in a row you get 1000 coins - I refuse to waste them on pin packs etc.(which you can get for free by completing course mastery) - I am saving my coins up for a 6 Hole unlimited pack at a cost of 75,000 or 90,000 so no need to spend money you just need to play the game...
The new swing mode is much more realistic in how you play golf - once used to it - it's better than previous versions
On-line games against other people can be fun - if you set the level to within your expertise range...
also playing against my misses is fun (although no Xp or coins earned)
All in all this is the best PGA Tiger woods game yet and yes I am Addicted
Tiger woods 14 out now but I prefer to get games like this cheaper so waited and got it at a bargain price.
