Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 

 

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters builds on the foundation of years past, but adds enough new features to take simulation golfing to an entirely new level. Adding to the tried and true gameplay mechanics and graphical presentations that have wowed fans for years, EA Sports was able to up their game with new voices, refined in-game graphics, but most importantly The Masters. The entire Tiger Woods PGA Tour experience feels new and refreshing.

In years past I have stayed away from the careers modes in favor of the other gameplay modes. However, with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters, Career Mode takes on a completely different meaning. For the first time I feel as if I am really trying to achieve a goal and work towards something, The Masters. EA Sports did a phenomenal job of incorporating the Masters in the Career Mode in addition to implementing Masters Moments into the game. Masters Moments gives gamers the opportunity to relive some of the most storied Masters by playing as those individuals. Whether playing Career Mode or Masters Moment I could not get enough of Augusta National.

Speaking of Augusta National, the golf course look impeccable in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters. From the grass, sand and water to the trees, clubs and golfers; Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters leaves nothing in the club house when it comes to presentation and in-game graphics. And making the presentation even better than year is the addition of Jim Nantz doing voice work. His professionalism and love for the game come through his work from the booth.

Also making a debut this year is the all-new Caddie. In Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters golfers will have the option to get assistance from a caddie. Now, this is not Tiger Woods caddie, Steve Williams. However, the advice is good most of the time and the caddie does help with shot preparation. The voice work for the caddie is great, but does become repetitive after several rounds. That being said, the caddie was a very good addition to an already great game.

Replay value for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters is off the charts. The only issue keeping this title from getting a perfect score in the Replay category was the limited choice in golf courses that come with the game. There are others that can be obtained through Downloaded Content (via Xbox Live), but I would have preferred EA Sports give all those options to gamers that may not play online or access Xbox Live for extra content. Hopefully this can be addressed in future versions.

I found myself not wanting to turn off Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters. This is a really fun game, but not in an addictive way. The career mode is a blast, as you customize your golfer and work your way to being a Masters Champion. There are so many options that make this the most realistic golf simulation video game to date.

Overall, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters is a great game for individuals and families. Families can discuss competition, working hard and using your talents to make the most of your opportunities. When so many developers are focusing on violent and inappropriate games, it is refreshing to know that EA Sports still delivers games like Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters. This is a must have for sports fans of all ages.
