Pros Use your "own swing"
Cons Quirky swing recognition
Summary Much like the Wii standard golf game, Woods uses your own swing to determine the shot distance, hook and slice, and putting distance. I found, however, that the "eye" loses track of where your controller is and does not reflect accurately enough you true swing. A nice fluid swing that is not "pro fast" is met with an agonizing shot that goes maybe 30-40% of a normal distance. The controller itself really is not condusive to the super fast swing required by the game. I think that maybe in future releases EA should try to teach golf a little more at the beginner level, and work you up to the "pro swing". I don't think this will be a big hit with the pre-teen to teen demographic who love the franchise (unless they already are good golfers).
That aside, the game is very pretty, particularly compared to the usuall cartoony fare offered up by other software makers. The is no noticable difference between the Wii look and that of the 360. There are new courses that previous versions didn't have, which is nice.
The game play, other than the swing, is much the same as it has been for the last several versions, with a few new feature that look like they'll be fun (if I ever get good enough with the swing)
I shot a 103 in my first game. Which, unfortunately, is about the same as in real life. Based on that, it great. I wish it could handle a slower swing pace.
