I bought my Wii 2 days ago and this came as part of the bundle. I wasn't too sure about it as I'm not a golfer and I've never really got into a golf game before. But this is absolutely billiant. The tutorial at the beginning is great and the ability to do in-game practice strokes really builds your confidence.
I reccommend it for both golfers and non-golfers.
My very first Wii game and I have to go and buy a game that has probably the most difficult menus you will come across. TW08 is definitely not user friendly when setting up, and it makes you complete a ridiculous test section at ths start before you can go any further. This involves driving the ball straight, drawing the ball and slicing the ball..however when you go to the game proper none of this seems to come into play.
That said I quite like the action of swinging the club to reproduce a shot. Being a former 7 handicap golfer does me no favours though and I have found the putting action infuriating at times. However the reproduction of St Andrews (a course I have played for real) is reasonable and all the bunkers are in the right place.
Overall worth the money if you like golf, just turn off the scenes between shots and get get rid of the annoying commentary of Gary McCord and David Feherty.
After getting a Wii for the family I as an PS2 player was interested in getting a game that was of interest to me and that my daughter aged 7 could play as well. She is good at the golf on Wii sports so the decision was simple I had Tiger woods 06 & 07 on PS2 and enjoyed it so Tiger 08 it had to be.
I gave it a try yesterday and found the format to be near enough the same as the previous versions . It gives the options of going straight in and playing on your own or against others or set up a career or finally Tiger challenges.
I liked the graphics and found them as good as on PS2 also although to control the swing you can use a conventional controller or nunchuck I found using the Wii remote best and also so my daughter did also.
|A great game for everyone !!!!!!!!!!!!
