I wish I could explain why I've recently found myself so infatuated with a golf game of all things, since my real-world golf experience is limited to doing poorly on driving ranges... But, I digress. EA just released a gameplay trailer for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12, and it looks sweet as heck. We were expecting this game to land next Thursday, and EA just confirmed that date on their end.

Check it out:

Keep in mind the original Tiger Woods PGA Tour [99ยข] is still just a buck, and it's hard to say if that price will remain the same or not once its successor is released. (Or if the game will even still be sold or not.) So, if you want the old version, or don't particularly care about having the new hotness, don't wait too long on picking it up.

    Looks pretty good though animation looks poor.

    Not impressed. Seems the same as previous versions. Always hated the putting aspect. The best game for my money is GL Golf Deluxe. Consistently upgraded, courses and equipment added. Graphics are terrific. Never tire of playing. Sorry if I sound like I'm selling it but I really like this Golf game. I own the Tiger game, Let's Golf, and a few more which I deleted.

    Where's the commentary??

    Gameplay looks very similar to the TW that is out now, from just looking at the trailer. I've enjoyed TW and had it on m phone since release. Good fun to play when a tourney is on the tele. I've felt it could do with a graphical update and perhaps this is it. I found the difficulty to be spot on - a tad easier than the consoles, but great when I haven't played in months and I can play a round and win by just a shot or two.

    Really does look like the previous version so I am really impressed.
    I have played it alot, even though it started to become extremely easy pretty quickly,
    You can easily make every putt pretty much no matter where it is on the green (I really only had to 2 putt a few times) and a birdie was pretty much the highest I'd shoot.

      I meant not really impressed, sorry

      • Justsomedude

        Putt without invoking caddy's help and I assure you it's not as easy as you say.

      • schplurg

        Not really, I make almost every putt without the caddie. I purposely leave my putting abilities low just to make it challenging.

  • Big Huge Nerd

    I don't know why EA can't be bothered to make the ball look like it even goes in the hole. Look at the video, around the 15-second mark. The ball travels PAST the hole and then disappears. Ridiculous.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, but they put a lot of time into those pretty shadows...

  • Z3r036

    Is Eli getting paid from EA to give this game good promotion...this looks like recycled junk and Eli The Gaming God is so in love with this? I smell A Sell Out

  • Lamar Taylor

    The graphics looked unchanged and don't take advantage of Retina Display from I saw on the video. I was going to buy it without hesitation but I will now wait for user reviews and a price drop.

    • Justsomedude

      If you think the graphics on this year's version look the same as 010 version,then I'm afraid it's time for you to visit an eye doctor. I don't know how anyone can not see that. EA has clearly upgraded the graphics on this one. Also, there's going to be a lite version, so you can check it out before deciding whether to buy the full version.

    • Salsamd

      There will be a free version apparently for you to try...

  • Wisedude

    Game looks the same to me also not that I've played it much but I'm not seeing anything new myself to me it just looks like the same game and really where is the commentary. I don't like the controls either it's a shame they have used them again definitely a skip in my book.

    • Justsomedude

      "Wise" dude, it's a minute long trailer intended to introduce the game. So, obviously, you're not going to hear commentary in it. The 010 version had nice commentary, so you can reasonably assume this year's version will have similarly interesting commentary feature as well.

  • Fredrik Jackson

    Looks good, but I'm not fan enough to get it before it's on sale for a buck.

  • Mark77

    One thing that bothers me about these games is: Where are the spectators? How can you possibly "see and feel" the sensation of the PGA tour without an audience/spectators??? Surely it's not that hard to integrate into the game. Up until they integrate this feature I cannot take this game 'seriously'
