Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 for the Wii - First Impressions

Posted by: Ben Berry at 4/11/2007 2:49 PM
If you've ever golfed 18 holes of golf in a day, you know how your arms feel afterwards. Sore and tired. Especially if you aren't any good like most people who will be playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 for the Wii. I got the game yesterday and spent 2 1/2 hours playing. I actually played 36 holes in the season mode, and I felt like I had played 36 holes. I missed the cut in my first event, slowly making progress in my skill with the game.

What I love is that the swing feels like playing golf. Putting is a little less lifelike, but only a little. Putting should be more difficult than ball striking because it is in real life. And that might be better if I adjust my motion sensitivity. If there was a little more weight to the controller it could be a major workout. I was sweaty, tired, and sore after playing last night, and look forward to more time with it tonight. 

I know some people have complained about the controls but i think this was designed with golfers in mind and it really plays that way.

I also made my custom golfer which looks like either me, or a less drunk John Daly.
