If we call Wii Sports the foundation of a house, then Tiger Woods PGA Tour ’07 is the unfinished first floor.
Joystiq’s Zack Stern recently had some hands-on time with the title, and said it was a step up from Wii Sports golf with “a few caveats.” Graphics, as expected, were PS2-caliber (the screenshots in Joystiq’s post are absolutely atrocious). But then, as has also become expected, Stern said game play quickly superseded any concerns over graphics.
A few quirks that EA might want to iron out before March:
- quirky club control (sensitivity is adjustable)
- the way players spin the ball breaks any sense of realism created by the swing
- no online
Editor’s Note: No jokes about that headline, please.
Ya, I can’t wait to get my hands on Tiger Woods Wii as well. Stroke play will probably be the most fun, as will spinning the balls.
Ok, I’ll stop now.
I have had an embargo on giving EA money for a long time, but I really want a golf game, and it is good to here this one comes in at 480p widescreen, and sounds to be shaping up nicely.
EGay ,what do you expect? – their only good games come from software houses they’ve bought – like criteron etc.,
I will not even think of getting a Wii till March. Thats when the first real mature and well developed game will be coming out (Metroid Prime 3) till then…i will wait.
I am tired of the PS2 type graphics that these third party lazy ass developers keep on putting out(In some cases even worse). It will be stupid for then after Nintendo and/or 2nd party developers show the world how to build a game for the Wii from the ground up.
It is interesting that this game is featuring “PS2-caliber” graphics: Wii is perfectly capable of featuring at least GameCube-caliber graphics… Why the downgrade on the graphics for this particular game??

Couldn’t agree more. This damned system is supposed to be able to double the Xbox. I just haven’t been impressed so far. I’ve only seen a slight increase over Xbox.
It’s actually weaker in areas and stronger in other, compares to Xbox. Don’t get your hopes up.
Although RE4 can and needs to be eclipsed, pronto.
I always though it was strange that since RE4 graphics are capable, why are they not done in every game such as a sports game. They could easily be done in golf, since there is little on screen motion, anyway.
For that, every game would have to be made by Capcom and last 4 years in development.
