Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 Review

By Monica Bair |

Author's Note: While reviewing the current-generation version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07, I played through the game on the Xbox version. For the PC and PS2, I played a few rounds to compare the graphics and the controls. In doing so, I failed to see that there are only 12 courses available to play on the PC version instead of the 21 courses in the PS2 and Xbox versions. For that, I apologize.

Tiger Woods 07 on the PC is still a good golf game in terms of gameplay. But with about half the content of the other current-gen version with 10 licensed courses and two fantasy courses, the score for Tiger 07 on the PC will be adjusted accordingly.



While setting up my second shot on the 18th at Pebble, the cold virtual surf pounding the virtual Monterey coast below me, I can't help but feel I've done this all before. For more three years now I've tested my luck over the Pacific from the black tees. Then I break the hearts of Pops Masterson or Melvin Tanigawa or some other virtual caricature as I drop the next to the pin, inches away from an eagle.

Tiger 2003, 04, 05, 06 and now 07. And you know something? It never gets old. Unfortunatley on the PC, there's just not enough.

Tiger 07: As fat as you wanna be.On the PC, there are only 12 courses -- 10 licensed and two fantasy courses. While the content is light, Tiger continues as the world's most fun golf game in 2007. But the now-annual question pops up again: Where does EA go from here? Creative titles like Pro-Stroke Golf and Real World Golf, and a lack of recent innovation on the part of EA, are closing the gap between Tiger and the competition. Still, this only reinforces Tiger's biggest problem. When you're the best, how do you get even better?

Gameplay

Options, options, options. That's really the direction the development team has taken this year. Tiger is really as difficult as you want it to be, and on expert control settings you'll find yourself hard-pressed to break 70. That's mostly because some courses have been Tiger-proofed, with greens that have such slope that the blazing grid lines may induce seizure. Some courses, like our old friend Pebble Beach, remain cake (maybe because we've played it for so long).

Natalie Gulbis: begin drooling.But on the higher difficulty settings, you'll find the controls unforgiving and a refreshing challenge. I've routinely shot in the high 50s on some courses in the past and those days appear to be over (at least for a few weeks, anyway). The difficulty sliders for environment, opponents and your own swing make this Tiger the most accessible and, for experienced players, the most challenging to date.

After the revolutionary dual analog system debuted in 2003, Tiger has been tweaked with a steady influx of minor putting and swing changes. This year, you can choose from both old and new, so those not in favor of the shot shaping stick to control fade or draw can use the left analog stick alone, Golden Tee style. Even the old-school putting from Tiger 03 is available, if you so desire.

The PC features the familiar mouse and keyboard approach, but you can always plug in an analog controller, if you like.

--------------------------------

These applications are available for download from:

http://www.tigerwoods07.com

EA SPORTS COURSE ARCHITECT
The EA SPORTS Course Architect and Library Creator have been used for years to design, build and compile
golf courses for PC-based golf games. Now, you can use these professional design tools to build the golf 
course of your dreams. And, you can import your dream course into Tiger Woods PGA TOUR(r) 07 to challenge 
the Pros to a round on your custom course. Or, bundle your courses and publish them online to share your 
creations with other Tiger Woods PGA TOUR(r) 07 golf fans.

EA SPORTS Course Architect features full land plot creation. Through the Course Wizard, you can 
design the entire plot of land containing your golf course, including general topography, large terrain 
features, substantial water areas and the basic layout and orientation of each hole.

When you have completed your course, the Course Architect compiler then proofs and packages 
your course to include it in your suite of courses in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR(r) 07. In the event of 
problems during compile, the Repair Course feature can address many of them.

THE LIBRARY CREATOR
The Library Creator lets you expand the asset libraries of EA SPORTS Course Architect in new 
directions. From a core set of included assets, you can build unique and personal libraries and 
assemble them in The Library Creator. Technically minded designers can re-purpose existing 
textures to create libraries for new environments. With The Library Creator, you can take your 
course designs to a different level.

Career Editor
The Career Editor is intended for use by advanced users who wish to customize their career tournament files
for use in PGA TOUR(r) Mode. It cannot modify the existing career files.  Instead, it creates a new file called
PGAUser.gcf that can be used for Created Pros rather than the shipped PGA Tour calendar.

--------------------------------
07.  Frequently Asked Questions
--------------------------------

a. How do I start to play the game? (DVD, Graphics Hardware Test)
- Be sure to have the DVD in your drive upon launching the game.
- On your initial launch of the game, the Graphics Hardware Test will be run to best optimize the 
game's settings for performance. It is highly recommended that you leave your video settings set to 
Automatic Settings for optimal game performance. While you have the ability to manually configure 
the video settings, increasing the graphics quality setting past the automatic defaults will have an 
adverse effect on game performance. Tiger Woods PGA TOUR(r) 07 also dynamically changes 
game settings to optimize performance. If you turn Automatic Settings off, the game will not do 
dynamic adjustments during game to keep your frame rate steady.

b. How can I install more courses?
- To install Tiger Woods PGA TOUR(r) 07 courses that are not currently installed to your hard drive,
you'll need to reinstall the game using the typical or advanced/complete install options.
- To install legacy courses (courses from Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 2003-2006 products) that are not 
currently installed, open the Course Utilities application. Follow the steps below:
  1. Press the Install button.
  2. In the newly opened dialog box, change the Source location to your DVD-ROM drive or to the 
drive that contains your course files.
  3. Double-click on the Courses folder in the left column or select the folder that contains your 
course files.
  4. Double-click on the folder name of the desired course to install.  Two files will appear in the 
lower left with file extensions of .TCL and .TCR.
  5. Highlight these 2 files and click the Install button.*
  6. You will receive a notification once the course is successfully installed.

*Note: You can specify the folder where you would like to install the new course by changing the 
folders in the Destination column on the right side of the screen. Make sure to create a course 
specific folder before clicking install.

*Note: You can also install user made courses in a similar manner. EA does not provide technical 
support for user made courses.

c. What happened to the EA SPORTS COURSE ARCHITECT & THE LIBRARY CREATOR?
- The Course Architect and Library Creator are now available via the Tiger Woods website.

http://www.tigerwoods07.com

d. Can I play digital audio or CD audio music?
- If you would like to listen to digital audio or CD music while playing the game, you must have done 
a COMPLETE installation.
- If you have done a COMPLETE installation, you can play digital audio music by launching your 
digital music player before launching the game, or you can ALT-TAB back to the desktop from the 
game and launch the digital music player.
- You can turn off the front-end music and modify the in-game sound volume by going to the sound 
options menu.
- Choose Options from the Main Menu. Click on the Sound Tab and set the volume sliders to your 
liking.
- You can only play CD Music if your system has 2 CD-ROM drives or if you have done a 
COMPLETE installation. Insert your Music CD in your secondary CD-ROM drive and launch your 
digital music player before launching the game.
- EA Technical Support cannot assist with any issues that result from using 3rd party media 
players.

e. My virus checker says this game has a virus, do I?
- It is recommended that you shut down any virus scanning programs prior to installing Tiger Woods 
PGA TOUR(r) 07.
- If you do not have up to date virus definitions, there is a possibility that you will receive a False 
Alert from your virus detection software.

f. How do I set up my teams in the team games?
- The order in which you add golfers to the game will determine the teams.
- For example if the game type is Four Ball Match (a four player team game) the first two selected 
golfers will be team 1 and the last two golfers will be team 2.

g. Is there a difference in using an optical mouse rather than a regular ball mouse?
- Not really. If you are using an optical mouse, it is recommended to use a 2nd generation optical 
mouse or newer. First generation optical mice may exhibit anomalous behavior on very fast mouse 
swings.

h. Is there a limit to the number of Game Face profiles I create?
- Yes, some performance issues can occur if you create over 50 unique Game Face profiles. It is 
recommended that you delete some older profiles if you start to reach this threshold.

-------------------
08.  Known Issues
-------------------

a. Game Issues 
- If you own a GeForce video card and are experiencing discolorations and flashing issues in the 
water reflection, download and install the latest video drivers for your video card.  Upgrading your 
drivers will also provide you with a significant performance increase.
- Be careful when using anti-aliasing effects for your specific video card. Some video cards will 
encounter serious performance issues with these settings turned on.
- In the skills events (Putting Contest, Chipping Contest), if you hole out you aren't allowed to take 
your next 2 shots.  If any one of your opponents hole out, you will get a tie and will both get the 
victory.
- Changing to 32-bit color will remove banding in the skies at a cost of mild performance. 
- Don't swing too fast when using TrueSwing(tm), some mice can't handle it.
- Certain older sound cards and embedded audio systems may experience skipping or looping 
audio.  This problem may be fixed by turning down hardware acceleration from the Control Panel.
- If the game defaults your system to fixed cameras, switching to auto cameras or flying the 
cameras around manually will cause low frame rate.
-Running multiple programs on your computer while playing the game, may cause longer load times.  Please close
all non-essential programs prior to running the game for maximum performance.
-Using the Alt+Tab function anywhere in the game, may cause the game to not function properly.
-When using the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra SLI 512 PCI Express card with ForceWare 91.31 drivers, you may 
experience a refresh issue when exiting the game back to the desktop.  Try switching drivers to solve this issue.
-The EALU for DirectX can appear blank on some PC configurations.  IF this problem occurs, please try entering 
a command prompt and type in " autorun.exe DXInstalled " to bypass DirectX installation.
-You may expereince some performance issues when using nForce Chipsets with Asus and MSI motherboards.

b. Install Error (IKernel.exe - Application Error)
- If you receive the following error message after successfully installing Tiger Woods PGA TOUR(r) 
07 please follow the steps below to correct any future error messages for subsequent installs:
