Tiger Woods 14 review

Tiger Woods PGA Tour is back for its annual round of golf, and it manages to surprisingly squeeze in several new features. That is no mean feat for a franchise that has been coming out annually since Tiger Woods PGA Tour 99 in 1998. See all games reviews.

Players who have gone hands-on with the game at some point in the franchise know what to expect, but for the uninitiated, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 lets players travel to some of the most recognisable golf courses around the world. It also lets you play as some of the leading athletes in the sport, whether it's current players such as Tiger Woods or past legends such as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Take a look at GTA 5 release date in UK: GTA 5 sreenshots and trailer.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 stands out from past instalments by featuring 20 championship courses, the largest number of courses in any instalment of the franchise. There are five new courses in total, with the key addition being Muirfield Village, a favourite of Jack Nicklaus. Visit PS4 price in UK; how much will the PlayStation 4 cost?

The player roster has been bumped up to a total of 35, though the additions will mainly be recognisable to fans of the sport, as most of the golf legends have already been immortalised in past games.

No doubt in an attempt to broaden the market for the game, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 features the LPGA in the career mode for the first time. Players keen to see what the female-only golf tournament is like now have the option to do so, though in reality the experience does not vary that much from the regular PGA experience.

Another interesting feature EA has added to the game is night golf, letting the golfer to play in a non-typical environment with the help of an illuminated ball. The different lighting conditions do mix up the playing strategy somewhat, mainly adding a new layer of challenge for those already familiar with courses in daytime conditions.

Microsoft Kinect support makes a debut with the Xbox 360 version of the game, letting the player use both motion and controls during gameplay. The Kinect was designed for these types of virtual reality gaming experiences in mind, and while the motion controls work most of the time, the occasional imprecision of the Kinect camera means that the player’s full body movements are not always accurately converted into the desired golf swing.

  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 review

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11

    The biggest difference between Tiger Woods' current-gen debut in 2005 and the newly released Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is incredible in terms of gameplay depth, feature variety, and presentational quality. But when metered out over six HD iterations, it can be a bit harder to draw up much enthusiasm for the year-to-year distinctions.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters offers little in the way of revolutionary changes. But a few key additions maintain the series' reputation for a solid, satisfying, and deep game of golf.

    It'll take you exactly one round on Beginner and four holes on Intermediate before you get hooked to Super Stickman Golf...or in other words five minutes.
