I'm never played any of the PGA games before, but downloaded the demo as I thought it about time I tried one... Looks good, but 2 little things that really bugged me. Why do all the little cut scenes load, play and then fade to black, another cut-scene, fade to black, cut-scene fade to black! It's almost hipnotic after a few plays. Why not string some of those cut-scenes together! Just looks weird to me!
...also, why do the crowds look like limp, waffer thin and rather life less. They just seem dotted about the course at random, and when the camera pans round them, they turn paper thin and almost disappear from view, until the camera pans over the other side!!
Just when you consider the action that's thrown up on the screen in action games like Gears of war or call of duty 4, compare that nice gentle slow pace of PGA and the crowds just appear as static painted back drops... I would have hoped for plenty of animation and even movement around the grandstands. Shame.
On the plus side - game play looks and feels good. Great animation of the main character. Nice whack of the club as your ball flies off into the water and the courses themselves look awesome!!
