Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 

 

As we enter into spring many turn their eyes to the golf course. This also brings the latest iteration of video game golf from EA Sports - Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14. This is the first year all four golf majors are in the franchise. They are the Masters Tournament, the U.S. Open, The Open Championship, and the PGA Championship.

Legends make their entrance in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14. We get to go all the way back into the 1800s and play in some fantastic black and white. To be technical it looks more white and brown to me. But who is quibbling. Going back in time and seeing how things looked back then is a real treat.

It is apparent that EA Sports spent time on the faces of the players. They look very realistic. All the way down to the expressions on their faces. They animate like real golfers, and the fans have little animations that are neat too.  They are leaning when the ball needs to lean a certain way, clapping, and acting like real spectators.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 does not stop with the graphics in terms of realism. The fans will also let out a slight groan when a putt is missed. Which by the way is something I was exceedingly proficient at. The announcers put on a clinic and add to the realism as well. I especially liked hearing: "the man upstairs made a beautiful day today." Or something along those lines.

I tested the Xbox 360 version which means I was able to play Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 on Kinect. There is no better way to play this home console golf game than on the Kinect. I did great playing it on Kinect. Some of the movements needed for certain things felt awkward at first, but the golfing action, and spinning was easy on Kinect.

Playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 with the controller is another story. I ran into problem after problem playing this sports game with the controller. I could not keep my line straight, putts missed and more. I checked some putts and they were perfectly lined up. I hit the amount of power, and it came up way short, or went right past the hole. That putt guide only lets you see it once. So you have to guess from there - which was another issue I had. Putting is difficult in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, and rarely makes sense when you miss.

Online gamers are going to have a field day with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14. Country clubs can now house one hundred members. So you and ninety-nine of your closest golfing buddies can have your own online country club. Night golf has been added as well as current golfing events. You are allowed to duplicate them if you so choose.

Ladies are brought into the mix in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14. The LGPA has been added to this franchise. Career mode should keep most video game golfers busy for some time. The new swing styles will take some getting used to. But once you find one you like you should be off to the races.

My end conclusion is Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is a fun game. It takes hours of practice to get certain things down, and others work like a charm. There are tons of modes, features, and options. Honoring the past greats is a really neat thing, and I hope to see EA Sports continue it in the future. I am thankful I was allowed to play and review Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14.
