I have not played any of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour games on this generation of consoles. Other than the new control options like the Wii Remote, and that being updated with WM+, or the Sony games now getting the Sony Move support, I don't see how the Tiger Woods PGA Tour games have changed a whole lot from the initial games, as of game-play.
If you have played the Tiger Woods PGA Tour franchise games on a near yearly basis, please leave your thoughts if you think the franchise has continuously changed for the better; or, do you think somebody that purchased one of the original games in the franchise has experienced, for the most part, what the most recent franchise releases are offering?
If you are interested in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 on either the PS3, Wii, or Xbox 360, you can see prices for each version on Amazon.com below:
Tiger woods is the same game every year and they want you to pay $10 for each extra course every year. I think if you download all of the additional courses, the game comes out to around $130 per year. LOL. Yeah right.ReplyDelete
The game has made major improvements each year on the Wii. Since the introduction of WMP for the 10 version. The game has gone to another level of overall quality. Making it the superior version to own when compared to the HD versions. This year game added enough new content that it deserves to be purchased. I have bought Tiger for 3 years straight. Even though I never buy any other EA Yearly released Sports Franchise. The reason is due to EA actually improving the product. If you like Golf then you should buy Tiger.ReplyDelete
The Wii versions that support WM+ (10 and 11) are really good, and worth giving a try.ReplyDelete
The previous and PS360 versions aren't really worth your time and money.
The Tigers Woods game don't change a whole lot year to year. I waited until WM+ to get 2010 since up until that point the Wiimote wasn't up to snuff.ReplyDelete
2010 was great on Wii, the online could have been better and seeing that 2011 has minor improvements to online (adding a online disc golf mode) it just wasn't enough to warrant an upgrade. The scandal didn't help much (I think it has more to do with him just sucking on the course recently) but I think a lot of people were just satisfied with last years versions. It seems there is a trend that Wii owners don't buy sequels as much.
I think when the Playstation Move is released, the PS3 will see a significant sales increaseReplyDelete
also, i couldn't care less about the scandal and that didnt impact my reason to purchase it at all. Tiger Woods 11 is a great game for golf lovers and casual players also. Quite a good party/drinking game too :)ReplyDelete

I think the Tiger Woods golf games are like most sports games in general. The Wii version is the only exception so far with a change in controls, with WM+ being added to it. The PS3 version will be next with Sony's Move.
I have never purchased a golf game, but I really did enjoy Wii Sports Golf. Do you think the PS3 version with Move support will pull away Wii sales next year, because this year it seems like the PS3 version was doing well before the Wii version had a price drop?

I read one Amazon.com reviewer that said 10 is better than 11 on the Wii, do you think that's the case?
I actually have wondered about, "It seems there is a trend that Wii owners don't buy sequels as much.", that before.
