Start your journey down the "Road to the Masters" with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters. For the first time in franchise history, players will be able to step on to the hallowed grounds of Augusta National to experience the rich history and tradition of the Masters Tournament. Rely on the advice of your caddie to strategize and focus your game while feeling the intensity of the PGA Tour season. Embark on the "Road to the Masters" as your career begins on the amateur tour and work your way through Q School, Nationwide Tour, and finally, the PGA Tour. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters has something for every golf fan and is the must-have title this year!

There are certain things we take for granted whenever a new Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf game comes around: the best graphics that can be found in any golf game, a sumptuous and flexible control system and the chance to match our skills against those of the world's finest golfers. But every iteration of the all-conquering golf-sim franchise brings something new, and in the case of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12, EA Sports is treating us to that most venerable and venerated of major championships, the Masters.

You simply can't call yourself a true golf-nut if you have never dreamed of slipping on the fabled green jacket. And if you can't contain your excitement at the prospect, you can jump straight onto the Augusta national course. But it's far more satisfying to gain entry on merit - via the Road to the Masters, which is basically the Career mode. It starts you off on an amateur nine-hole event, and if you do well in that, you swiftly acquire your Tour card; from then on, how quickly you progress to pitting your skills against the fearsome Amen Corner depends entirely on how swiftly you are able to propel yourself into the world's top 100.

Ramming home the focus on the Masters are nine Masters Moments, which take over from the familiar Challenges found in previous versions of Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf. These invite you to replicate iconic achievements from Masters of yore, such as Tiger's own chip-in on the 16th in 2005, or Arnold Palmer's eagle on 13 in 1958.

Another key, all-new feature is the caddy system. Once you try it, you'll find yourself wondering why past golf games ignored this key aspect of the game. The caddy suggests shots for you at the touch of a button, and is particularly useful for beginners, as it introduces you gently to the subtleties of drawing and fading, loft, spin and so on. But it isn't just for beginners: each course you play has a set of Course Mastery Objectives divided into gold, silver and bronze, and as you start to achieve those, your caddy (powered by wondrously high-tech artificial intelligence) will learn, too, offering increasingly imaginative tailored shot-options.

Online, the mighty GamerNet system is back which, once again, lets your imagination run riot by posting countless challenges for your friends (such as longest drive, nearest to the pin and so on) - just what fanatical golfers need to maintain their insatiable thirst for bragging rights even when the weather is too filthy for them to contemplate venturing outdoors. As before, you can build up a serious online reputation by taking part in tournaments and racking up GamerNet points.

Courses include 16 in the box, with a further 20 available a downloadable content. Golfers making their debut include the Molinari brothers, Ricky Fowler, Zach Johnson, Bubba Watson and Henrik Stenson.

This year's Masters is bound to produce more legendary feats to add to its unparalleled library of super-memorable golfing glories. What a joy it is that we'll be able attempt to match them - as they take place - via the medium of the world's best golf game.

 A bit Disappointing

| | See all DiceDuP's reviews (8)

In TW'11 I used to enjoy switching between 3click & stick control "on the fly" using 1 button, which was useful for putting. '12 forces you to go into the main menu each time. Box says "Additional 14 courses!" but you have to spend at least another 17 quid to get them via DLC. Not getting them results in you having to skip lots of events to progress.

The facial features of every golfer is a step backwards from '11 aswell. Tiger Woods looks like he's had a massive botox injection in his lips, and his cheekbones look like he's had plastic surgery. Using photoface is also nothing compared to '11.

Lots of commentary has been regurgitated from previous installments, but the presentation is at least improved.

Now, onto the Caddie. this is a new implementation from EA but it needs a lot of work to get it how it should be. By that I mean a lot of work on YOUR part. Another reviewer states that the caddie gives you shots that aren't as good as you can pick yourself. For the first season this is definately true, and even some for the second. Persisting with the caddie and progressing unlocks a rating for your caddie per-course. When you achieve Bronze level, your caddie will start to pick better shots for you, and the higher levels results in him choosing even more shots that you might not consider yourself. Even in real golf caddies aren't the "be all and end all" and most golfers will only discuss distance, wind and a few other parts of how they should play a shot. They keep a history of their golfers shots for each course and remind the golfer what they did before. The caddie in your first couple of seasons will only be truly useful on the green. Some of the greens in the Augusta course are truly difficult to read, and your caddie will show you a fairly decent spot to aim at and what pace to use - this can save you a lot of focus if playing on pro or higher as you don't need to preview your putts as much.

Now, the biggest fault for me is the 3-click mode. Using it in Amatuer mode is fine, but then you become "too good" and have to set the AI to "extremely low" scoring which becomes unrealistic when a four round tournament results in an AI achieveing -64 on tough courses. Anything less just results in you destroying the field every round. Pump up the difficulty level and the 3-click circle just becomes a lottery. You can just about keep control of the power easily, but the direction is a nightmare unless you pump loads of points into accuracy - and you won't get many points if you start as pro. Even worse, 3-click putting is almost impossible on pro or higher, and remember pro is only 1 step up from amatuer, and you have two higher difficulty levels after that!

I give it 3 stars because, even though I paid the money for the DLC, the game is still fun online, and I am praying EA might patch the game to slow down the 3-click on pro - even a little bit!

 I agree with MAC SHEFF

This game is so poor. Stick with previous Tiger Woods. Do not waste your money on this. I think they have rushed this out. They should have held this back and incorporated it into Kinect.

 pitiful

Im sorry but I totally disagree with the previous five stars. this game may include Augusta but apart from that this is really NOT as good as 2011 .there is no manual included they are trying to save paper. the caddie is a total nuisance and you have to remove him for every shot to move the player to cope with wind speed and direction.The three click system is so quick that it is almost impossible to control the direction of the ball .and as for putting it is just unbelievable.Sorry just not good!!!

 Very enjoyable

If EA had jus realesed another years tiger woods with no aditions everyone would be moaning about their money grabbing, now they have added a caddie which makes you take a bit more time and play it like a proper game of golf everyone is moaning aswell! Can't win with some people, but the graphics improvement caddie addition, the fact your carreer heads towards something and the feature of saving your golf round when ever you want to, i find this a great update!

 A definate hole in one...... with a BIG downside!

Ignore the haters, first of all the Tiger Woods franchise has required a much needed face lift for years, and we've finally got it! The whole layout is better; they really have stepped away from the gimmicky look to its predecessors. This is definitely more of a golf-sim.
The new caddy feature is good, sure to begin with he doesn't really offer any "game winning" tips, but it is a nice touch, and I'm sure once you start to master courses his help will be invaluable.
Road to the Masters, this is basically you're season game mode which has replaced the Skills mode & PGA Tour season, and is (in short) a combination of both of them. It looks nice and plays nice too.
Sponsorships - gone are the days of having to pay 15,000 XP for a cap, or 32,000 XP for a golf ball. Basically XP is what it stands for now (X-Perience), the XP you earn is used only for upgrading your skills/ All all pro-shop items are free, depending on what sponsorship deals you've achieved. Basically each sponsor (i.e. Calloway, Taylormade, Nike, etc.) have 4 levels of sponsorship, and to complete each level you need to complete certain objectives (sink a 25 foot putt with their putter, chip in with their iron, etc..), and each subsequent level you complete you unlock more gear.

THE DOWNSIDE, there are a massive 34 (I think) courses on Tiger Woods 12, which is great ("but what's the downside I here you cry?"), well the down side is you have to download 16 (I think) of them, which will probably cost in the region of 20gbp+.

In summary;, the game feels, looks and plays great, but I do feel a bit cheated by having to pay for extra courses, which may I add you need to 100% complete you season - if you don't have them you have to skip them and lose valuable player points. Still I am going buy these, because I love the game, and as for the 3-click complaints made by other gamers...... who the heck still uses this prehistoric system, analogue all the way!!!!!!!

Thanks EA & Tiger - 8.5/10
