Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters review

I know I said that I was going to start writing more frequently here and then promptly ignored the site for months, but it’s not the sporting offseason for basically everything I write about over at Burgeoning Wolverine Star. This, however, is just a quick update and a plug for my most recent review on PopMatters: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters.

Money quote:

Despite all of these complaints, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters is still an incredible game. It’s only when you compare it to its ancestors that the game’s new features and general lack of progress feel stilted and disappointing. For diehard Tiger Woods fans and golfers, the addition of Augusta National is likely worth it, but for the casual player, there’s very little benefit to this year’s issue of the most consistent gaming franchise in recent memory.

There’s one thing I failed to mention in this review. The game is always trying to make you purchase the DLC courses. During your career, you frequently try to enter tournaments that you aren’t allowed to play in because you don’t have the course. If you want to play in that tournament, you have to buy the DLC. I’ve played in three PGA tour events and had to skip two others because I didn’t have the course. This is a real pain in the ass.

But it’s still a Tiger Woods game, which means it’s better than just about 70% of games on the market.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back. deeadacdadfe
