I think this game is very underated here. I preorered two games. MLB 11 the Show and this one. I think it is going to be alot of fun and different than previous years.

Love the reaction when he sinks the putt to win............oh wait a minute THERE WAS NONE!?! I don't understand why everyone is gushing over these vids. It looks exactly the same as every other year with just a few bells and whistles tacked on.

Well I, for one, skipped 11 and got a good amount of enjoyment out of 10. I like to play as sim as possible (I understand that video games are supposed to be fun...not PERFECT) being an avid golfer myself. I was very close to purchasing 11 after hearing about the True Aim/Tour difficulty combo and how nice it was. Therefore, this is going to be a definite buy for me since those things that people liked from 11 are still in plus now we get Augusta.

So for me, it sounds like it's much different from my 10 experience. That's why some people might be "gushing" over these videos.

I skipped on Tiger last year, I think I'm going to get that golf fix this year.

I agree. There's no atmosphere, and how bland are the graphics? This series is really stale, much like the majority of EA's sports titles.

Totally agree. That's one of my biggest complaints with this game - no atmosphere to pull you in. Tiger winning his first Masters and he putts out like he's at a Wednesday pro-am. The gallery is completely dead. EA really needs to take some lessons from NBA 2K11 and MLB The Show to see how stadium/venue atmosphere, fans, cutscenes, etc. really enhance the experience.

The gallery helps a bit, but so much more could be done to give this game some life if they simply presented the other golfers, and this year their caddies, in your group. You're playing in a PGA tournament against a field of 150 golfers, yet you never see another golfer while in play. I don't know why they can't give you the option of playing with the closest licensed pro in the game in a twosome.

Say you're playing with Bubba Watson and he outdrives you by 20 yards off the tee. Wouldn't it be cool to see Bubba and his caddy standing beside his ball, off to the side, watching you play your shot? Furthermore, it would be even better if you could then advance a few yards, and watch Bubba play his shot from where your golfer is standing? This would be so much more immersive than watching him play it from his shot camera view... I really don't understand why they can't cash in on this idea. It's been brought to EA's attention year after year!?

The only reason I can think of as to why this is not being done is the game engine can't handle the extra processing this would require. But dang it would be nice to have something that didn't seem like you were playing in a vacuum.... (sigh)

I love this series, personally, but I couldn't agree with you more. Presentation is TERRIBLE!

The crowd noise makes me want to puke.
It's been the same since 07 and they make that same dam yaaa noise as soon as you hit every single shot
