Review: Tiger Woods PGA Tour for Playstation 3



Watching golf on tv is about as painful as stabbing yourself in the neck with pencils. It is the most boring sport on tv to watch. Playing a golf video game however is not.

In the last couple of years, I have got into playing Tiger Woods for Playstation 3. It is a game that is fun to play and very addictive. There have been times where I said I would only play for maybe a half hour or so then find myself on my ass still playing about an hour later. It is that fun. If you are looking for a new game to buy and you haven’t tried this series, you should consider giving it a shot.

There are two ways to hit the ball: With the analog stick or the 3-click meter which is hitting the X button three straight times for power and accuracy. I have had a lot of trouble hitting the ball with the analog so I have pretty much stuck with the 3-click meter since I started playing. When the ball is hit, you can direct the ball to land where you want it. The newer games are much more realistic as far as creating your own character and golf course. You can play online and throughout the game if you are playing alone, other players make challenges on how far the ball is hit and you can try to beat it for points.

For myself, I am a Playstation guy. You can play online for free and surf the net on the Playstation 3 unlike XBOX where you have to pay a fee just to get connected to play online. Plus, the Playstation has a built wi-fi and the system has a lower failure rate than XBOX. For people who are thinking about buying an XBOX, Microsoft was sued several months back because they knowingly sold systems that would burn out after a short period of time. But I digress.

Go rent Tiger Woods 2009 or 2010 and if you like it, buy it.  It is definetly worth it.

    It’s been a couple years since I’ve dropped $60 on Tiger. I think the game is redundant and I absolutely despise most of what EA does, except for DICE’s Battlefield: Bad Company. Anyway, if they up the number of courses I might think about getting it. Maybe.

    I like the idea of dynamic live weather, though. That’s pretty neat.

    I apologize for using the word “neat.” For shame.
