Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 suffers from the same issues that were in PGA 12. While the last year’s edition of the game really didn’t pack much of a punch, PGA 13 tries to change things but fails mostly. But nonetheless, EA’s attempt to change the core mechanic of the game, The Swing, will really change how people play this game and this is also arguably the best change the developers have brought in the series. I will talk more about the changes in a few minutes in the review.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 introduces the Total Swing Control mechanic. This is one of the best additions the game has received in the whole generation. This time, the left analog stick is used to dictate how the shot will behave. This means that you will be saying good bye to shot meters and pre-shot types. Now ever gesture during the move will affect where the ball goes and lands. This allows the player to become in total control of the ball and the place where it falls now is on the shoulders of the player rather than the system.
This time around Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 changes a lot of things that determine how you are playing the game. Instead of relying on the system, now the control has become much more dependent on the player behavior. The only problem is that the new mechanics are tough to get used to and EA does a very bad job at explaining the new system to the players. So if you are expecting that the game will tell you how to use the system step by step, you are completely wrong. Instead, you are thrown into a game that doesn’t tell you much about the mechanics.
Thankfully, once you get the hand of the new mechanics on your own, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 starts looking really good. I have not seen a PGA game in the past that offers this much freedom to the players. You can now decide how your shots are played and how they will be completed. This is a welcoming change and the fans should definitely try the game out.
