Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13
Pga tour 13 is the best version of the game the gameplay and different modes keep the game exciting.
You only get 7 stock courses, rest is DLC
In the create a career mode, you must skip probably 2 of every 3 matches because you don't have the course!! Then why is it there? What is the point in charging $60 when you get 1/3 of the game. The courses that are actually on the course are not included.
This is a classic case of EA robbing it's fans by buying out the rest of the competition and giving you half of a game and making you buy the rest. From now on, I will seek all other means necessary to get my gaming to ensure I will never purchase from these guys again. Disgusting way to run a business.
Not what I expected, not worth $60
Before Tiger Woods 13 released, I was so excited when I heard that it works with the Kinect. I got the game as soon as it came out and, unfortunately, I wasn't so satisfied. The Kinect tracking is way, way off, there was a glitch that caused it to freeze, and there were so many courses but only half of them were playable at first. To get the other courses, you had to download them which costs extra money. I don't have my Xbox 360 connected to Xbox Live. Come on EA, I spent $60 on this game, and you have to have Xbox Live to get the other courses, what a ripoff! For a lot less money you can get a used, older Tiger Woods golf game that would have more playable courses. I'll bet that Tiger Woods isn't so happy that he has a sub-par product (pun intended). I returned this game a few months later.
Good game, lost interest
I bought this game remembering how much I loved to play Tiger Woods 2004 for my GameCube. It started out as being a really fun game, but it got really boring after a while. It was just the same old thing over and over again. I also hated the fact that I would have to buy rounds to play courses that didn't come with the game. I already payed a decent amount of money for the game. I don't want to pay more to play on other courses, especially per round. It's a video game EA, you don't have to water the courses every day and maintain them... I'm trading this game in for something more fun
Double Eagle ;)
This is overall one of my all time favorite games. It has amazing graphics and is really fun to play. You will really enjoy this if you have a love for golf and video games.
Great but Gets Boring
I purchased this game and play it some every day for about one and a half weeks. It was great at first, but it got old. However, I took about two weeks off from playing it, and I think it's great again. The only problem I have with it is repetitiveness, but any golf game is going to have that eventually. All around I would say this game is great, and I already have recommended it to friends.
Kinect VS. Controller
I perfer to use the controller because when you use the Kinect, it's just to touchy. You can barley move your hand and the spot where you are aiming moves a mile. Also i found out that when you use the kinect it takes longer to play the game just because of the aiming issues. I also think it is harder to play the game when you are using the controller because you have to pull back and push forward the Left Stick perfectly in order to hit the ball good. When you use the kinect there are also glitches. Somtimes the character wont swing when you swing. So if I were to rate this with the controller i would give it a 9. If i were to rate this with the Kinect i would give it a 4.
Tiger Woods PGA tour 13 is an overall good game. Total swing control, player movement, golf coursers, and career mode are all pros. Cons include offal lighting, lifeless commentary (again), and the number of golfers are still scarce. Player animations need work, as some look like cartoon characters. Others are okay, but none are good enough. I understand EA sports trying to be creative by adding Tiger Legacy Challenge to the game, but you will find yourself board after a few minutes. The game is good, but many flaws subtract from a great experience.
triple bogey at best....
I get this game every couple of years because they always were bad.... And it seems the pattern continues to be worse and worse each year. Very inconsistent, the graphics for the players are 3 years behind, you cannot practice (driving range etc.) unless you have collectors edition?? I wish there was another sports vehcile besides EA because I'm getting extremely bored by their constants short comings...
At first when i got this i thought it was great. I started a career with a golfer and wasted countless hours on the game face which has many flaws then started playing the actual career. The amateur tournaments at the beginning are a joke then when you get to the masters its like impossible. The wind after the 2nd round makes no sense and goes up to 30 MPH. When it is less it is usually affected more so it is almost impossible to guess where to aim. If thats not a problem enough half of the time when you hit a bad shot it will kick you out into some crazy location which makes no sense and gets annoying. The commentary is practically 0 which is also annoying and the kinect is a joke. it doesnt read half the time no matter where you stand and always hits a perfect shot no matter how poorly executed and half the time goes to a place you dont want. it has great online but that is about it.
