Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09

The man and all the controversy aside, let’s focus on the athlete, or at least, the athlete-in-a-game. Graphically, this looks terrific, with enhanced water, terrain and trees. I’m happy to report that this is the first version of Tiger Woods to get skies right. They are beautiful and dynamic, and even include, finally, haze. The spectator models and animations have also been given long-overdue attention. Playing this game is finally the visual treat it should be. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 may be the most fully-realized sports game EA has ever made. It has nearly everything one could want in a golf game.
