TW-PGA11 is absolutely greatest golf game ever! I skipped TW-PGA10 and played PGA09 two years before going to PGA11. The game has been improved a lot from v09. I especially liked new Experience & Attribute system and a new Shot Focus system.
Instead of earning cash, you now get XP for your actions on the course. That XP can be doled out to attributes just like before, but this year you can reallocate points if needed. Experience & Attribute system is separated into ten different attributes within the four familiar categories of power, accuracy, control, and putting - but also to purchase new items.
Show Focus is what allows you to add that extra boost to the ball, increase the spin speed/direction, use your putt previews as well as increase your accuracy which is something I will get to shortly. Be careful with it though, as focus will deplete as you take advantage of that extra boost, or those multiple putt previews to save birdie. Once your focus is spent you will lose all of those abilities until it recharges. Focus will recharge on any shot where an enhancement was not used and will continue to do so over the course of your round. Next time you are thinking of going for the green think of laying up and saving your focus and ensure a solid putt preview because you might not have it.
One interesting feature is True-Aim option that can be turned on to take PGA11 to some of the most authentic golfing experience to date. When True-Aim is set to on, the way the game is played takes a more realistic approach to golf and eliminates the Zoom to Aim functionality.
When you begin a round using True-Aim the HUD will look similar to that of regular play, although you will notice that the information HUD in the lower right no longer show the swing percentage and hole distance but now only shows the carry distance for the current club selected.
At last but not least: Ryder Cup; Choose from the U.S. or European squad and participate in the various competition formats - foursomes where players hit alternate shots, fourballs and singles which traditionally bring the biennial event to a close with players going head to head. When playing The Ryder Cup mode offline, gamers will have the option to swap matches, thus giving you the ultimate control over the outcomes of other matches.
