For anyone who has bought the game:

Does the game play like the console game or Tiger Woods Online? Are we able to use game pads instead of a mouse and keyboard?

TW Online and mouse/keyboard only. Can't recommend this one at all just like I can't recommend TW Online unless you like purely arcade Golf games....TW12 for the iPad is a far better game and far more challenging.

Thanks for the heads up Divot. I tried out TW Online this weekend and did find it too easy. I have a trackball for a mouse, so using a mouse to play was out of the question. I used the 3 click method and shot a -8 from the black tees. Too easy and not as fun. I did run all settings at the highest lvl and found the scenery to be outstanding. Oh well, back to the PS3 for my golf fix.

I really wouldn't mind playing this game with my 360 controller on PC. Mouse and keyboard would be fine too I guess. I just wish there was a demo to be honest as I haven't played a golf game in years and not sure if I would like it.

There is a Demo on Origin. A one hole demo of the 18th at Augusta. I was completely unimpressed with the demo and gameplay.

Overall game is crap and you can't play with a controller, it's completely keyboard and mouse....and it's so boring...There is already an update when you install and run for the first time, don't know what it actually improved.

But this game sucks...I got the graphics on Super and it still looks like polygons hell....

I've heard from other sites EA is offering reimbursement on this game by calling customer support.

Yeah it's going to take a few days to get my card reimbursed
