Pros Everything. Great graphics, plenty of options and game types, and with the Coursedownloads site one can add endless courses to this game. Use and master the TruSwing, it's amazing and is the best swing option out of them all.
Cons The only con is a small one, if you click your left mouse button before a shot when the hand icon is showing you will turn 20 or so degrees and you have to realign yourself. Just avoid this, simple.
Summary The other reviewer states "no widescreen," this is not true, you go into the video options and choose the proper resolution. Even though this isn't much of an upgrade from 2006, it is worth the purchase being all the 2006 bugs are worked out and the endless amount of courses available from the coursedownloads site for the 2007 game. There is no trick to getting enough money to buy new equipment, accessories and clothing, just play the "skills competition" in game modes with just one other player and keep playing it until you get around 100k. Then buy the best of the best of everything and you will still have enough left over to take lessons and pay for the early tours, if you need more money go back to the skills competition, but it's best to build up a large bank account before you begin tours. There is a trick to gain attribute points quickly when using a created player. Play a normal game with two players, one of which is your created player. At the 18th hole make sure your created player is winning, whoever gets the very last shot, save the game before you take that last shot, then finish the game. You get 900 attribute points for a 18 course win, it really isn't a lot being your attributes take forever to get up to 100. Instead of playing an entire game over and over just to get those 900 points each time, go into "resume" and click "saved games," if you saved that one game click on it then "tee off" and it will bring you to that last shot. Just shoot that last shot and boom, 900 points. Keep doing this over and over. 2-3 hours of this can get you 100 on all attributes. I just got myself around 90 on each attribute except "power" which I kept lower because the short game can be tougher if your smaller clubs are real powerful. Say you have a PW, 9I and 8I that are all over 110yards and many of those shorter shots are 30-60 yards, it can be tough to judge how to use TruSwing to hit those shorter yard shots. Or you can tweak your club sets but I have not attempted this. So my advice is when you're adding power to attributes, play a quick round or two to test the power of your clubs every 10-20 points you add. It's nice to be able to drive 300 yards but I'd take a 280 yard driver and a better set of short distance clubs than a bunch of powerful clubs and driver. In closing there is no better Tigers Woods year, 2007 is it. Visit the coursedownloads site and read how to download and install the courses. All you need to do is download and install the CLS utility, then browse through the large number of courses and choose as many as you want. You just download the course, and all the libraries required for it, save them all in a single folder in my documents, when you open CLS browse to that folder and no matter if they are zipped files or regular ones, CLS with automatically unzip and install them one by one, you just OK each one when the dialog box pops up and it tells you if it installed correctly. You can then delete all those files are they are installed in your Tiger Woods directory and then you can begin to download a new course and it's libraries. Tiger Woods 2007 works perfect in Windows 7, sometimes when you're doing that quick attribute trick it will crash to desktop but this is rare and you lose nothing, just restart the game and always run as administrator.
Pros The game plays fine and has been tweaked a bit.
Cons Physics still iffy. What's with the lack of widescreen?
Summary EA seems to be trying to show their customers that upgrades are for suckers. Never, ever pay for an upgrade from EA until it goes on sale for at least half price. The upgrades never add much to the game and this edition is no exception.
How the heck can EA think that their customers would not want a widescreen monitor option for a golf game?! In a word...lame. I'll buy this product again in 2020, maybe.
