I agree. Also, man I hate that stupid yellow trail behind the ball, way too arcade like. I just hope the distances have been toned down on tour mode.

That is only activated during Practice/Club Tuner mode....

So you can practice on the course now?
 
# 6 DivotMaker @ 05/18/09 12:34 PM
Yes, along with the Club Tuner....

Are there different views once you've hit the golf ball? I am so sick of the "behind the ball" camera. I want more views that are like a golf telecast.

I'm gonna go a head and co-sign that!

They have had Presentation Cam since TW09 and this years cameras appear to be much improved over last years...more like a TV broadcast. The ONLY reason for Ball Cam is for those who play default difficulty with the after shot spin and boost effects (features that simply nauseate me to no end because they don't BELONG in a PGA TOUR licensed Golf game....)

Off my soapbox now.....

I wish videogame companies would stop dumbing down their products. Realism should be the #1 priority for a game like this. I really hope it has taken a step forward in that department this year.

Here's some footage of the new TV Style Broadcast camera work. I really like the way the camera holds the swing view for the first half of the tee shot and then switches to a reverse angle "snap-to-lie-esque" camera, which tracks and zooms in on the ball as it slows to a stop. I notice also that they hold the golfer's swing camera view for longer on each shot, before switching to another camera... I really like that for allowing me to frame the shot from my golfer's perpsective.

I also think golf games should have photo realistic graphics by now.

Show me any other game rendering a fully dynamic and animated 3D environment with trees, bushes, water, sky (all animated in realtime) that is photorealistic and I might entertain your argument....

Just looked at that footage for the first time. Two alarm bells: 1) I see those ridiculous player reactions are still in the game - please, please let it be possible to turn them off this year, surely not such a difficult thing to arrange. 2) The much-vaunted new commentary sounded decidedly wooden to me - not a game-killer, true, especially as I actually prefer to play with commentary off; I just hope that there are good ambient sounds, crowd reactions etc.

I also hope the player reactions can be turned off, along with the auto-flyover-hole preview. Yes, I know I can skip them with a button push, but they have to start before you can skip them... it gets really annoying!

It may be too early to judge the commentary... I'm sure Scott Van Pelt will be a better fit for the game than Sam Torrence. I'm not a Kelly Tilghman *****, but I'll admit that I'm biased since she's a "Dookie" ;-)

Agree 100% with point #1. They really need to update the animations so everyone isn't doing either a stock Tiger reaction or a ridiculous judge-smails-throw-the-club bit. How many times do you see that on the PGA Tour?

I do see some incremental improvement with the gameplay and online looks promising, but again its the little things that distract from the realism and immersion factor (most of which have been mentioned here time and time again). Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to picking this up when it releases.

I agree, dump the reactions... and nothing pissing me off more than encouraging casuals that it's ok to throw a club.

Yep, agree on all points. I'll have to reserve final judgement till I play of course, but it sure seems like there's not much of an "upgrade" at all. Slight, but underwhelming. I was hoping (of course I was) that TW2010 would be a big jump in all areas.
