I played the title on the Xbox360 and I was impressed. I liked the new attribute system. It's not perfect but it's much better than the previous versions. The club feedback is also a welcome addition.
I recently bought a PS3 as my XBOX360 gave up the will to live.
I rented out TW2009 on the PS3 and I noticed that the graphics and most notably the player animations are substandard. I used the same HD.TV with both games XBOX360/PS3 and can't understand why the graphics differ so much.
(in a press release EA said the game and graphics are identical!
The golfer animations have no clear definition around the golfer. You can clearly see the pixels as blocks, it looks worse than other PS2 titles. (out-line of golfers not graphics)I will rent out the game again as I'm hoping this is a problem with the disc.
Apart from the shabby player animations this is a good game. Not much has changed from previous incarnations. The commentary is dull and flat and the trees look pedestrian and lifeless. There is no competition to the TW series which is a shame as I'm sure EA would be forced to push the boundaries.
Some games are in production for years and benefit from the extra time at their disposal. Games like TWs FIFA and PES come out every year and in my opinion don't get the attention that such titles deserve. I would like to see a two-year cycle for such games, with patches updating golfers and courses. ££££££££££££££££££££££
Will insure that this doesn't happen however.
