Top Customer Reviews
- The addition of Augusta is worthy of a new release. However, EA has removed some of the more enjoyable features from previous versions of the game. For instance, why remove the camera flybys or change the thumbstick putting mechanism? EA could have left these features in as options at the very least.
- The graphics are great, but they are no better than the previous installment. If you have played Tiger Woods 11, there is nothing to brag about here.
- Using the Move controller is novel, but the accuracy is questionable at best. Unless you are playing "just for fun", you will be using the control pad.
- The caddy feature is a nice addition, but it is unpolished. Shot advice from the caddy is either completely obvious or completely misguided. Leveling up your caddy's mastery of the different courses takes an eternity and provides no measurable benefit. If you are familiar with the controls, you will probably turn the caddy feature off after a couple rounds.
- Putting in this game is more difficult than in real life. The controls are extremely fragile. You will soon build up a tolerance for missing 2-foot or 3-foot putts. There is nothing to practice or correct on your end - it is a flip of the coin. You simply roll your eyes and move on to the next hole.
If playing at Augusta is your main concern, buy this game.
If not, get a copy of Tiger Woods 10 or 11 and save your money. You will still be dazzled by the graphics, and the gameplay will be as-good or superior.
Luckily, this year one of those dreams has been fulfilled. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 comes complete with the home of the Masters, and the entire game, from the introduction, to the menus, to the special features is decked out to display the beautiful course located in northern Georgia. From the second the game turns on, it sounds like a telecast of the Masters is starting.
Along with the new course, another new feature is called Masters Moments, where you re-live some of the greatest memories from Masters lore, from Tiger Woods' miracle chip-in in 2005 to Gene Sarazen's double eagle in 1935. If you can perfectly replicate all of these moments, you'll receive an automatic bid to the Masters tournament once you reach the PGA tour in career mode.
Speaking of Career mode, it has been fleshed out and expanded wonderfully. This year's edition now includes an Amateur Tour, the Nationwide Tour, Q-School, and finally, the PGA tour. This adds a wonderful layer of depth to the game, and it really makes it feel like you're working your way up from the bottom, as opposed to just starting and winning on the PGA tour right out of the gate. In addition to the events, there are also challenge and sponsor events each week. Challenge events consist of matching you against a PGA/LPGA Tour player in one of the game's various modes, such as Match Play, Skins, or Battle Golf. If you win, you earn an enormous amount of XP.Read more ›
After a frustrating experience with TW2011, specifically the poor move implementation (documented in my review of that title), I finally decided to get rid of the game and take one more chance on tiger woods 2012. I'm very glad I did.
First of all, I'll echo the general positives about the game that others have mentioned. The new approach to building xp - by playing your way up through the amateur and then nationwide tour is MUCH more fun than the approach in 2011 where you screw around with "challenges." You get right into playing real golf against reasonable competition immediately. Also, the addition of Augusta is worth the purchase price alone, and IMHO the most beautiful golf course in the world is well represented in the game. Another update that I enjoy is the ability quit and save during the middle of a round so you can pick back up where you left off. The caddie is also a nice addition, especially when I introduce friends to the game. I find that friends on their first evening (with the move controls) can play competitively against me, with them using a pro golfer, using nearly all of the caddie shots with no adjustments, and me using my (low XP) profile doing custom shots where necessary and generally being better at the game. Only general negative I have is the cheesy intro that you cannot skip until you've created a profile. I made the mistake of not creating a profile the first time I played (wanted to go straight to augusta) and then had to repeat the whole thing the next time I put the disc in.
On to the move updates. The implementation is SIGNIFICANTLY improved over 2011.Read more ›
