Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008 punktet auf voller Linie. Viele neue Möglichlichkeiten werden dem Spieler geboten. Alleine die vielen unglaublichen Möglichkeiten, die einem das EA Sports Gamernet bietet, lassen Golferherzen höher schlagen. In der Offline-Karriere wurde die Tiger-Challenge überarbeitet und bietet jetzt sehr viel mehr Abwechslung und Spaß als in irgendeinem Spiel bevor. Die Steuerung wurde überarbeitet und es sind viele neue Möglichkeiten eingebracht worden, um seinen perfekten Schlag zu spielen. Doch neben all den Neuerungen freut es uns besonders, dass EA Sports nicht an alt bewährten Spielmodi und Möglichkeiten gespart hat, sondern diese beibehalten hat.

If you're a fan of video golf, be glad that you've got a next-gen machine in front of you. For one thing, Tiger Woods 08 is a solid game with some seriously cool new features, and for another, EA didn't even bother releasing a version for the last-gen Xbox. The Photo Game Face feature will floor you, but the GamerNet idea still seems to be a work in progress. On the links, the ability to use a three-click-swing is cool, as is the game's added focus on player confidence and past track record. Just like in real life, Tiger continues to impress.

Sometimes when you're golfing you nail a hole because you bail yourself out with a superb putt, chip, or tee shot. But this game is instead like masterfully shot hole, where each stroke feels just right.

There’ some new golfers, courses and a few new features, but Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 isn’t much different than its predecessor. But with the quality handicap it already owned, there wasn’t much need for the Tiger franchise to change its stripes. With a perfect balance of excellent simulation and arcade golf gaming and another round of good online play, EA’s flagship golfing game continues to dominate as the best around.

A few small visual moans aside there's not a whole lot else to complain about in TW 08. Sure, it's yet another annual update and a cynical part of me almost wants to dislike it for that alone. Sure, the skills grind at the start comes close to crossing that fine line into boring at times. But with new additions like three click swings, shot confidence and GamerNet even those complaint starts to pale into insignificance. Each year it's easy to glance through EA's release schedule and trot out the casual cliche about buying this and that only if you're new to the series or a huge fan, but that's more than a little unfair when the title question is genuinely great. To put it simply, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 plays the best round of golf available at the moment and comes wrapped in an impressive Golf-RPG package that contains more game modes and options than you could shake a 5 iron at. It may not be a hole in one, but it's a bloody impressive birdie.

Any golf fan must own this game. Any sports fan must own this game. In fact, any game fan should have this in their collection. This isn’t just a golf game, it’s a golfing experience. This is as close to being outdoors playing as you can get without leaving your house. EA Tiburon has done a great job with their first golf game, and if all future games add to the genre as much as this, I shall be a happy man. For those of you thinking of sticking to the 07 version, don’t. This is definitely worth the extra money. This game really is Tiger Woods.

came away impressed with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08. I am in no way a fan of the sport (I call it a sport dubiously) or of the franchise. Yet I still find myself emotional over a missed opportunity or a miraculous shot. This is not your father's golf game. Tiger has come a long way in providing a fun and diverse number of different ways to tee off. I chip it... I mean, I dig it.

As a whole the game is a good package. I’m thoroughly enjoying working my way through the Tiger challenges and updating my golfers look as I go through. I’ve heard many gamers say that it isn’t very different to the previous version so this may be a game for hardcore fans of the series or those looking for a high quality Golf game. Hopefully the game will be patched soon, though the unforgivable bug is represented in the final score.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 ist für Einzelspieler eine mäßig verbesserte Neuauflage der Golfspielreferenz, die immerhin vier neue Kurse bietet. Wer dagegen über eine Onlineanbindung verfügt, bekommt dank Gamernet einen deutlichen Mehrwert geboten, der sich spürbar auf den Langzeitspielspaß auswirkt. Falls ihr hier online mithalten möchtet, solltet ihr allerdings zuvor dafür sorgen, dass ihr das Spiel mit all seinen Schlagvarianten komplett beherrscht. Solltet ihr den Vorgänger nicht besitzen und euch für den Sport interessieren, dürft ihr in jedem Fall bedenkenlos zugreifen - Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 ist eine rundum gelungene Simulation des Sports!

Weil sich die Änderungen in Grenzen halten, merkt man es kaum, dass ein neues Team für die Tiger Woods PGA Pro Tour 08 verantwortlich zeichnet. Die Zuversichts-Angaben sind allerdings ein Schritt in die richtige Richtung, denn dass sich die eigene Spielweise auf die Fähigkeiten des Alter Ego auswirkt, stärkt die Identifikation mit dem virtuellen Golfer. Zudem ist die Tiger-Herausforderung eine sinnvolle Ergänzung zu dem Tour-Modus - von den bekannt vielen separaten Spielvarianten und ohne Blick auf die inhaltlich mickrige PSP-Umsetzung ganz zu schweigen.

XBox Front (Sep 05, 2007)
Die Tiger Woods-Reihe entwickelt sich jährlich kontinuierlich weiter, da ist auch Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008 keine Ausnahme: Mit vielen altbewährten Spielmodi, leicht überarbeiteter Ballphysik und frischen Konzepten dürfen selbst Besitzer des Vorgängers bedenkenlos zugreifen. Dank des ausgiebigen Tutorials schaffen es sogar Laien, sofern sie genug Zeit im Gepäck haben, die Spielmechanik in Fleisch und Blut übergehen zu lassen, und selbst gegen die Berufssportler der Golfkultur zu punkten. Somit schafft es EA Sports mit PGA Tour 08 eine rundum gelungene Neuauflage der Franchise auf den Markt zu werfen. Positiv abgerundet wird das Gesamtergebnis mit dem innovativen „Photo Game Face“-Modus, in dem jeder Spieler entweder mittels Xbox Live Vision Kamera oder zuvor auf die EA-Server hochgeladene Bilder sein eigenes Gesicht im Spiel nachbilden kann. Ebenfalls sorgt das EA Sports GamerNet vor allem bei Golf-Fetischisten für zusätzliche Langzeitmotivation.

Game Captain (Sep 14, 2007)
Es ist sicher schwierig, ein gutes Spiel vollkommen neu zu erfinden – also warum das Ganze? Warum gibt es nicht einfach ein Addon zum Vorgänger mit lizenzierten Spielern und weiteren Golfkursen? Keine Frage: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 ist ein gutes Spiel, es macht Spaß - aber es ist nur eine minimale Veränderung zum Vorgänger festzustellen. Das mag eine EA-Krankheit sein, die den Spieler dazu zwingt, immer ein Jahr auszusetzen und erst den übernächsten Nachfolger zu kaufen, um eine wirkliche Veränderung zu erkennen. Für Einsteiger ist der Titel eine klare Kaufempfehlung, für wahre Fans eine Erweiterung des Bestandes und wer einfach nur mal Golf spielen will und den Vorgänger schon hat, lässt die Finger davon.

Kombo.com (Sep 19, 2007)
Tiger Woods 08 is a remarkable golf game. There are many things it does right but it feels like some of the modes have been sacrificed in order to make more changes. Most of the mini-games are just outside the box of being outstanding. The career mode is, like Madden’s gameplay (solid and dependable), something you can take to the bank. Tiger Woods 08 should and will dazzle sports gamers. Sure, there are a few areas of missed opportunity and unaddressed issues that should have been resolved but it doesn’t distract from the core of the game which almost hits the hole-in-one.

With only a few changes to this year's version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour, only Shot Confidence makes a difference to the way the game plays. If you have last year's edition, unless you are a real fan it's not worth buying this version. But if you are new to golfing on the Xbox 360, it's safe to say this is easily the best version of the sport available on Microsoft's next-gen console.

Eurogamer.net (UK) (Sep 10, 2007)
It still plays a great game of golf though, and is almost embarrassingly eager to please with its abundance of game modes and options. Don't like an option? Just switch it off. Need some help grasping the basics? The game leaps into action to take your hand. Want some guidance to refine your pro game? Everything you need to analyse your performance is at your fingertips. Almost every area of the game can be customised in line with your tastes to the extent that, if you ask nicely, Tiger will probably even dress up as Sailor Moon and call you Susan. Given the variable quality of the EA Sports brand over the years, the general air of sequel cynicism is more than justified but, if you're willing to invest the time in building a better golfer and not just grumble that it's too hard, this is the best Tiger Woods has been in years.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 actually is an improvement to its predecessor, although there’s no enormous progression. Fans will love TW 08, but personally I see this as the ideal time for new players to join the community since the old, easy way of swinging has returned. Not only is it a lot easier to make a nice shot, you also take your time to learn all about the game rules without having to worry where the next ball will land. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 remains a major hit, even though there aren’t many new things to be found!

Doch egal, für welche Version Sie sich entscheiden. Alle überzeugen mit großem Umfang und spannenden Momenten, wenn Sie den Ball über den Rasen treiben - das ist dreimal "gut".

Loin d'être une simple copie reliftée de son prédécesseur, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008 met au contraire entre parenthèses ses aspirations esthétiques pour nous offrir des sensations de jeu renouvelées. Plus réaliste mais plus accessible que jamais, peu avare de nouveautés, cet opus ne laissera personne sur le carreau et satisfera les nouveaux venus comme les habitués de la série.

GameLemon (Apr 09, 2008)
Tiger Woods PGA Tour '08 is not a bad game, far from it, actually. In fact, the team that makes the game does a great job of mixing just the right amount of arcade playability with sim game realism. However, there's not really anything here that makes this year's version any better than previous titles. The game has all the same courses and play modes as you've already seen before, and the Photo Game Face, while cool, is not worth buying an entirely new game. Take the money you'll save and go get yourself a nice lap dance, you'll be happy that you did.

Remember my earlier statement about my addiction to the Tiger Woods games? Tiger Woods 08 may well be the video-game equivalent of the local methadone clinic. What attracted me and probably a lot of other gamers to this franchise is pretty much gone in my estimation, and all EA’s done to plug up the holes is add a few new play features that just accentuate the game’s drawbacks. Ah well, back to windmills and plastic hippos for me.

The Video Game Critic (May 30, 2008)
This game also suffers from many of the same design defects that plague the Wii version, including a needlessly complex create-a-golfer feature and the fact that your head will sometimes block the hole during a putt! The fact that the current hole and par information are not displayed on the main screen is beyond stupid. Apparently EA invested all of their time and resources in the new "photo game face" feature, which lets you upload your own face onto your character. Who asked for that feature? Oh yeah, that's right - no one. The left stick is used to swing your club, and the gameplay is respectable but not exceptional in any way. It lacks the pick-up-and-play quality of the Wii game, and it takes nearly twice as long to play a round. Most Xbox 360 owners will probably be satisfied with this, but only because they don't know what they're missing.
