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)

"Strong wind in my face... Smooth swing... People are watching... I don't want to shank ... more

it." Earning the prestigious title of #1 Golfer of
All Time can be a nerve racking process and it's
exactly what gamers will experience in Tiger Woods
PGA TOUR 06 as they fight off more than just
pressure but also the man who's trying to claim
that title for his own, Tiger Woods. In Tiger
Woods PGA TOUR 06, gamers will attempt to settle
the old debate of just who is the #1 Golfer of All
Time. They'll play golf legends such as Jack
Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Ben Hogan on their
terms and in their specific eras (equipment,
clothing and all). However, Tiger Woods is also
there and is after the same goal. It's your job to
find him, stop him, and ultimately supplant him as
the #1 golfer of every era. Duel with Tiger in
multiple matches as he becomes your nemesis,
chasing and even taunting you in every tournament.
Just as it is on the PGA TOUR®, the key to a good
shot is execution and precision. In Tiger Woods
PGA TOUR 06 both analog sticks are used to give
more control than ever over each shot. The left
analog stick will continue to control the
backswing and downswing, while the right analog
stick, or "Shape stick", controls ball trajectory
and spin. Players are now challenged to focus on
the impact point on the ball, while thinking more
strategically before executing a shot. This also
extends to putting where players will have to rely
more on finesse and will need to move the analog
stick only as far as needed to make the putt The
game of golf is as much psychological as it is
physical and a key for gamers in 2006 will be
maintaining confidence. With tension on every shot
and mounting pressure to become the best, you can
either keep your composure or lose it and become
that embarrassing hack on the course. Based on
good or bad shots or scores you make, a
Gamebreaker meter will increase or decrease based
on the amount of confidence you possess.
