The Verdict: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 PlayStation Move Edition

I love Tiger Woods. And I love golf. I’ve been playing both for a long, long time, and when I heard that EA would be integrating PlayStation Move controls into Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, I was very much looking forward to playing a game that showed my one-to-one prowess with the sticks.

So, you can imagine my disappointment when I played the game and realized that the end result is more complicated than playing traditional Tiger Woods or actually golf. I was so frustrated that I wanted to break my imaginary driver over my knee and spend the rest of the day at the 19th Hole, drowning my sorrows in a bucket of whiskey.

This frustration comes from the control scheme being way too complicated, making it almost impossible to play. The way you need to use the Move controller to calibrate your shot location and distance, especially when it comes to putting, is screamworthy. For a game that is so detail-oriented, having to trust motion control to locate a putt, for example, can take you minutes of time, and end with you just putting out of frustration in an effort to try and end the game faster at any cost. Power, too, is a point of frustration, in that you can practically tear your rotator cuff trying to get power behind your shot and end up with a 41%, but then take a lax attitude toward the next shot, and hit it at 100%, seemingly without any rhyme or reason.
This is not to say that there aren’t impressive things about the game. Turning your wrists to open and close the club face can be really helpful to play into a natural hook or slice you might have, and the ball will definitely respond to foibles in your swing. The presentation is gorgeous, as always with the Tiger Woods games.
There’s a great version of Tiger Woods to be made for the Move, I just know it. Perhaps once they have some time with the hardware, and can develop a game from square one with that in mind, it will emerge. This, sadly, just isn’t it.
