  Great Game but Frustrating

| | See all 2zola5's reviews (1)

It is a fantastic game with lots of different things to do. With the wii, the remote sensors things (when you swing) which you accidently do. This sometimes make you do a half swing which gets very annoying. Otherwise the game is fantastic and is defo buy if you are looking for a realistic golf game

A great game. Even better on the wii, than the pc version. It's so much more fun, using the wii remote.

  Family Fun

I bought this game for my Dad on Father's Day and I have no regrets at all! We play it all the time and have such a laugh! I definitely recommend this game. Very highly indeed!

  I think they rushed the programming on this game

| | See all nosharpe's reviews (2)

The game has programming faults a plenty.

Backswing invokes a swing often causing the loss of several strokes
The wind speed is often incorrect
The wind direction isn't much better.
The distance to flag is often wrong.
The AI characters are expressionless
The graphics are not what you'd expect from a 2008 game

The list goes on.

What is really nice and sells this game is using the Wii remote to play the shot.
Perhaps with a lot of work, the developers will realise this.
Otherwise I can see the Wii falling out of favour with the consuming public.

This is the way golf was meant to be played. No lugging heavy golf clubs around or walking over miles of freezing English countryside, play the perfect round from the comfort of your own PJ's!
The swing mechanics have been greatly improved and the putting is quite simply perfect. There is no longer any need to read the exact distance of the putt or exactly how many inches right you should aim... just step up, guage the green by eye and hit the ball the way you would if you were on the green.
With plenty tournaments and fun additional games, Tiger Woods '08 scores an eagle every time!
The bottom line is ...GET IT NOW!

i got tiger woods with my wii... iv had every tiger woods since it came out from psone to ps3, n ther all gr8 games.. so wen i gt it fr the wii, i was feelin gd bout it but was let down.. i mean, yeh, gd graphics fr the wii, gd season mode n tiger challenge n tht, n all ur clubs, apparel n tht, but the gameplay itself lets the game dwn a bit
wind has no affect on the ball, i always movd the target to compencate fr it but jus didnt wrk, straight line, even wit 20mph winds :S also i found the game hittin draws n fades wenever it likd, i thought it was me but i did several swings wen my wrist dint move at all n still went werever it likd... thers a few other bd thngs about it, but tht means mor typin lol
overall, its an ok game tht needs wrk on it fr nxt yr... so probli best 2 wait till 2009

  Could do much better

| | See all RedWing91's reviews (14)

I've had this game for a few months now and I wasn't that happy with it to begin with.
Being a huge golf fan & player myself I was really excited when I bought it.
But the swing control with the Wii is tacky, the spin of the ball when its in the air isn't the best, graphics are exactly the same as Tiger Woods 07, the Pro Shop is also the same as Tiger Woods 07 and you have no control of the power boost.
I recommend getting this on the PS3, It's much much much better!!!
