So, the first Tiger Woods game to hit the Xbox 360. Obviously, you would be expecting EA to deliver on graphics, gameplay and online play. Partly because its a Tiger Woods game, but mostly because its the first to be released on the 360.
I have to say, on all 3 of these fronts, the game delivers what is expected. The graphics are especially good, for a game made in 2006, I can't see much difference in graphics compared to the 2009 version. Gameplay is almost as good as the graphics. Obviously a game can never be like real life, but the gameplay is really realistic. However, there are some glitches here and there. Like being able to hit a perfect shot out of a gorse bush. Not to mention the good range and variety of courses at hand as well. Including, TPC Sawgrass, Pebble Beach, Riviera CC and other famous courses. All of which have held a championship event.
The career is a good length as well. There are plenty events to play on a range of different courses. If you are finding the game to easy, then the difficulty can be adjusted accordingly. Throughout the career, more and more items will be unlocked including new golfers; such as: Tiger Woods, John Daly, Vijay Singh and many more.
Online play was good, however, EA Sports have shut it down now. Which is a bit of a dissappointment. However the game makes up for it by boasting up to 4 player matches on the one Xbox 360.
On the whole I would say this product is worth the money, especially since it is now only £14 brand new. (I managed to get it for £4 delivered in very good condition)
