The most fun you can have with a motion plus controller?
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 (Wii)

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 (Wii)
Advantages: Gameplay, graphics, true-view, competition play
Disadvantages: Makes you believe you can implement your success on the golf course. To be believed at your peril!
I have always dipped in and out of love with the game of golf. It can give so much - from verdant walks, quality time with a friend or relative, good exercise and the satisfaction of hitting something a long way! However for those things not to be consistently ruined by poor shots, lost balls and inconsistency you need dedication and practise, two things that have never sat easily with me! Luckily, although Tiger Woods PGA tour 11 certainly requires a keen hand eye coordination and some practise, it certainly lacks many of the frustrations of the real game and yet is accurate enough to make you work and giving enough to have you believe that you really are pretty damn good! (Just don't step out onto the real course to shatter the illusion!)
Excellent throughout, with great course detail, zoom-ins and sound effects that enhance the overall experience.
This is the real winner as the game allows you to hold the controller as you would a golf club and rewards a complete and smooth swing (as far as the technology allows of course). The motion plus adds some heart-beats that appear if you have hit a particularly good shot or are about to attempt a shot that could, for example, leave you with an eagle put. Unlike the Wii Sports Resort golf game, there are very few unrealistic hole in ones or holed shots from long irons. The in-game commentary is so American and produces some inevitable chuckles - especially the interaction between the male and female commentators. The game actually is rather physically tiring after a few consecutive rounds. Oh, and the true-view option where you actually see the view that your golfer would is a real revelation.
The aim of the game:
While there are many quick play options, surely the most satisfying is to play as yourself and build your talents and bank account, wardrobe and golf bag up by playing in the PGA tour events and getting prize money, points (which can be exchanged for skill points in various categories - power, spin, accuracy and recovery). This is fantastic and durable as it takes a long time to get to the top! If connected wirelessly to the net, you will also get added bonuses and money for longest drive on a given hole, etc.
Good option, but some people get such ridiculous scores, that it is highly likely that they've found a cheat that I haven't - not bitter honest :).
Superb. If you have motion plus and are in any way a golf fan. Get this - it is the closest game to the real thing that I've ever come across, there are no stuffy members or infuriatingly slow people in front of you either, which is a huge bonus!
