EA Games Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07
- The swing system is accurate and innovative...
- ...but it's far from perfect. The graphics and presentation also need polish.
Tiger for the Wii is a lot like the real sport of golf: wonderfully fun and tremendously frustrating. But unlike the real deal, it just isn't always worth the aggravation. Hopefully, they'll bring some of the finesse back for the 2008 model.
Price$ 99.95 (AUD)
For virtual duffers like yours truly, Tiger Woods '07 for the Wii seems like a dream come true.
A hyper-realistic golf game that utilises the Wii Remote to mimic a real golf swing is everything we could ask for in a video golf game. So why are we not impressed by the end result?
First off, it's because the Wii version of Tiger '07 is the least attractive and pleasing of all the available iterations. The features are pretty much the same but the Wii version's courses, colour schemes, and ball physics are lacking. But the real draw here is the Wii Remote's swing system, which is quite accurate, and mimics real world golf mechanics rather well. If you need to smash the ball down the green, then swing hard and fast; if a shot requires a delicate touch, then go slow and easy. You can also flick your wrist to fade or draw your shot.
But as innovative as the swing system is, it has a lot of flaws. Sensitivity is a major issue, and often, the Remote would register a swing even though we haven't actually completed it. Then there's the fact that the ball control options that most virtual golfers have come to expect are missing. There is no percentage meter to indicate your lie and there is no option to change the trajectory of your shot.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
