Our videos of Tiger Woods 13

EA Sports' latest installment in the Tiger Woods series shipped this week on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Let's be honest, we do not really belong to the bunch of numerous fans who eagerly wait for the yearly release of Tiger's new exploits. Not that we think the games aren't worth a look, but we have never really been attracted to golf. That actually explains how bad we play on the two videos you will find inside.

I just can't stop wonder what the heck happened to the graphics (and the series as a whole, for that matter) after Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2009. Since then EA have released 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 - still 2009 both looks and plays better.

If they don't take the series more seriously they could just as well cancel it...

I only liked the Tiger Woods in South Park season 14 episode 1 "Sexual Healing"

Glad I'm not the only one who feels that way. I swear this game has stagnated more than any other series ever! It really does feel like the graphics and gameplay have either not changed or gotten worse every year for the last 5 years.

Golf is one sport where a video game representation should have stunning graphics and realistic physics. Hell, they only model one golfer and one hole at a time, yet I've seen open world games look better than this! I guess they figure ppl who are REALLY into golf are going to buy it no matter what, but I haven't touched the series since 2009. Won't touch it again until they actually create a new, decent looking and playing engine either...

I buy the Tiger games every 3-4 years. Just played a few rounds 2012 while the Masters was on and had some awesome online matches in strokeplay.

I do agree with the graphics, they should be much better. IMO the immersion is quite good and the game still sells well enough, so I can't be all bad.

Probably will buy the next gen version as there for sure will be a graphical improvement. Until then I still can occassionally enjoy 2012, providing me with the fun I'm after.

    Sdarts However, I understand your skepticism. To be honest, I'm not excited for it at all. Not turned off, just not excited as well. I still need to watch the new 21 minutes video though. (5 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: I have heard a lot of people say the contrary, though almost all of them said it stopped being fun after 40 hours or so. Hopefully, TCGR:W's developers do a much better job. (7 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: The Division sure didn't do that for us. Have not played the latest DLC though. (37 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts A lot of times, co-op can turn a boring single player campaign into a very fun one. More often than not. (40 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: If you're playing with friends or, to a certain degree, even with strangers, then most missions might not feel like a "bore". (41 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker As for Ghost Recon, it's not that I dislike everything about it but I don't know about that open world. How many of those missions until it becomes a complete bore? (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Ah yes I look forward to Little Nightmares as well. Looks really cool. (1 Hour ago)
