I’ve been playing it for a little while now, and I have noticed that it is NOT surprising. Nothing will surprise you or WOW you in this game. It’s good; it works; will definitely satisfy your desire to play a golf game on your PC, but…
I figured that they would spend a little more time and put some more effort into the stuff that matters instead of additional customizable details for your player’s face and whatnot. Who cares? A scar? Whoop-de-do. 4,000 choices of clubs that all play about the same? Dozens of hats? Big deal.
1) We want the Course Architect! The skate board games have had that ability for years, and has become integral with the games. Why would you put it on SOME TW games and not this one?? Seems really cheap of them to leave it off. Are they going to ask us to buy it as an add-on? Good luck.2) More natural ball movement and bouncing (i.e. when a real golf ball hits concrete it takes of like a rocket, but in the game it bounces and rolls like its in med rough.)3) Hitting irons off of the carpet is no better than med rough? Since when?4) The computer-driven golfer can often get stuck in parts of Central Park course. They choose to hit a ball in the rough with a 3W and it goes 3 feet only to have them turn 180 and hit it with a 3I and go 100 feet — out of bounds. This repeats until the golfer concedes. The out of bounds on the 18th hole of Central Park green is inaccurate and absurd.5) The mp3 for the creek/brook sounds like a skipping record.6) When you play against a better golfer, but have them nerfed to ‘novice’, they will almost always hit the hole and roll over it if they are more than 10 feet away – you’re pretty much guaranteed that. Gets annoying after awhile.7) The people are obstacles, and seem to have some kind of sticky clothing?? Since when does a ball hit by a driver “land” on a guy’s shirt? Or sort of stick to him and slide down? They people should have no surface and let the ball fly through them — (most of the time) they would be moving out of the way during real golf.8) How ’bout adding a golf cart racing secret code or something fun? I know you want it all serious and whatnot, but those that would like to pimp out a golf cart, jump one off a bunker or whatever could seek out the code. Those that are not into that could be none the wiser and still think it serious.
I’m guessing that the “PGA” in “Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07″ is what keeps it pretty boring. Oh well, I’ll have to look elsewhere for the fun in golf.
Was this review helpful to you?
I own the 2004 version of the Tiger Woods, and figured it was time to upgrade. I bought this version after doing zero research, and I’m really disappointed. The graphics arent as good as the 2004 version. Ball physics are a little suspect, balls bounce the same regardless of the surface they hit. Ive seen back spin off a cart path. The game play is good, its keeping me interested, but the details are just enough off to be annoying.
1st I have to admit i have never played any of the other tiger woods series games and have nothing to compare it too or be dissappointed from. But it saddens that so many have not been able to enjoy such a great game.
At first when i installed and started playing i was dissappointed with the mouse swing so switched to 3 click, 3 click was also dissappointingly difficult for me, after a few hrs did i relize you can also change to two click as well, at that tym of change to two click the game was much much more enjoyable. With custom games, i play with freinds, to single player mode pga tour, and Team tour, this game is great! And when those cources got old that came with the game, i did a search for tiger woods 2007 cources and found a nice free site containing hundreds of more cources. Althoe it took a few hrs to learn to install the cources and library’s it was well worth my time.
Gameplay wise i find myself playing hrs in on out to build my players Attributes and get to the Legendary Tiger woods so i may win the game.At first the game was challinging, with no attibutes, but after weeks i found that the AI was not getting much more challenging but when playing a custom game,i can change the AI difficult level to expert “which didnt make much difference” but when i change the Golfer AI’s Ability’s then did i notice a respectable challenge when i was at high levels. Other wise the AI golfer will be pretty stupid.
As far as stabilty of the game, i have played on three different Pc’s all running XP/XP pro.On my girlfreinds 1.1GHZ Processor 128MB Ati video I had not one problem until i intalled additional cources then all cources of the game became nearly unplayable, until i uninstalled the custom cources, then all was OK Agian. When playing on 3.2 and 3.6 Ghz Processor with a 128MB and a 512MB video, i had Not one single problem even as i installed as many as 10 additional custom cources so far, it still plays great. All graphics cards i have used had the latest drivers and appeared in the readme file as a supported video card. Here is a list of the supported graphics cards according to the readme file on the disk. O BTW,I dont think this game supports any operarting systems other than windows XP, athoe i have played on windows 2000 pro/xp/xp pro without any trouble..Supported 3D Hardware Accelerated video cards include:- ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 8500- ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 9600- ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 9700- ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 9800- ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 (Laptop)- ATI Radeon 8500- ATI Radeon 9000- ATI Radeon 9100 IGP- ATI Radeon 9200 AGP- ATI Radeon 9250- ATI Radeon 9500- ATI Radeon 9550- ATI Radeon 9600- ATI Radeon 9700- ATI Radeon 9800- ATI Radeon X300- ATI Radeon X600- ATI Radeon X700- ATI Radeon X800- ATI Radeon X850- ATI Radeon x1300- ATI Radeon x1600- ATI Radeon x1800- ATI Radeon x1900- NVIDIA GeForce 7950- NVIDIA GeForce 7900- NVIDIA GeForce 7800- NVIDIA GeForce 7600- NVIDIA GeForce 7300- NVIDIA GeForce 6200- NVIDIA GeForce 6600- NVIDIA GeForce 6800- NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200- NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500- NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600- NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700- NVIDIA GeForce FX 5800- NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900- NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950- NVIDIA GeForce PCX 5300- NVIDIA GeForce PCX 5900- NVIDIA GeForce3*****- NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti200*****- NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti4200 with AGP8X- NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti4600- NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti4800 SE- S3 Unichrome (MSI)- S3 Unichrome- S3 DeltaChrome- S3 GammaChrome- S3 ChromeS27
