We all love sales and when I see a decent price for something I try to make sure I can get it. I saw Tiger Woods PGA Tour application recently and it was a very good 59p so I went instantly for the purchase.
I like golf but only occasionally and not all the time so I wanted to see if this application was like the Tiger Woods gaming you see on the much bigger consoles, I was not left disappointed.
The game at first seems confusing because you set up a player and play at some of the courses such as St Andrews and you play the entire 18 holes.
You get given rewards so if you can hit a birdie or an eagle you get big money rewards. If you get a fairway drive over a set distance you also get cash. Once the 18 holes have been played you can redeem the prize money you obtained for better equipment in a shop and try and own the best equipment in the game.
Now you do not have to play as your own invented character but you might play as Tiger Woods and try and earn the great reward money on offer. Throughout the game you get tips on how to play. You get informed how to shot against the wind and how to make the ball turn in the air by using various methods.
When it comes to putting the ball into the hole you are given plenty of guidance from your caddy who tells you the angles you might need to go at. You really are given a simple way of getting good scores. The game even picks out the right clubs for you to use.
You see bunkers and water throughout the game and the courses and there holes are identical to that on the real tours.
Once you feel you have established a decent amount of development you can join the tour and pay to enter tournaments over four days and try and help yourself to bigger rewards and reduce your own handicap.
The game is good because there is a mission involved and plenty to enjoy. The graphics are fairly decent although could be better in some places. I found the game play absolutely spot on and was very quick and offered plenty of potential should they try and do another application. I think overall the application for the price and what it has to offer is very good.
