Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 aims to take the sport to the next level with a new development team and a host of new game features. Taking online interaction beyond anything before in the series, EA Sports GamerNet enables players to create or play against interactive content. The game records everything from your greatest rounds to awe-inspiring shots which you can then post online for the world to try and beat. Earn points and the ultimate bragging rights by creating the best challenges or by beating them. The PC version also features an all-new Shot Confidence feature that tracks your performance on every hole, round, and golf course. Based on key factors, including club selection, hole, lie, and more, dig into past performances with the Confidence Meter to identify strengths and weaknesses before every shot.
Tiger 08 boils down to a few additions, but not much change overall. It's still a great game, but the new additions, other than Shot Confidence to a degree, really don't alter the core game. Tiger fans, of course, will no doubt eagerly drink up anything the game has to serve, but casual fans may want to stick with last year's if they're not willing to shell out $60.
