Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR News Post


EA Sports' official PGA Tour Twitter handle just tweeted a new screenshot of the 15th tee at TPC Sawgrass. It's rather beautiful, showing off the sun at a low angle and all of the course details.

Look for more information on the game as we march towards launch in June. With the Masters Tournament next week, if the course is included in the game -- I would expect some news or confirmation of that then.

A little tired of the morning/dusk shots. Can't wait to see what this game looks like at high noon.

Yeah I don't believe that is a real screen shots because that even looks a lot better then NBA 2k and NBA 2k has easily the best graphics of any sports game yet this gen. If I didn't know that was a game photo I would say it was real life.

EA has never had a problem making a beautiful looking screen shot.

I'm more interested in the the feature/mode list than endless Screenshots.

I'd have to disagree with your NBA 2K statement to some extent. I think it has the best animation of any sports title but character model wise they have some work to do. That's just my opinion though.

You may be right. No argument here. Actual gameplay videos should put the question to rest.

I have zero belief in EA being able to create a golf game that captures the "feel" of each type of shot, from slightly hooking a driver to getting up & down around the green to save par....all stuff that TGC does pretty darn fantastically.
The "post shot spin control, being able to stick every 120 yard approach shot within 3 feet of the cup, unrealistic equipment boosts" are intention features designed to reach the casual / arcade audience. TW14 had a Simulation mode that accomplished everything you describe above that challenged the hardcore simulation users. Opinions vary on the diagonal swing mechanic. IMO, it was FAR more challenging to score in TW14 than it is in TGC for me personally. My understanding is RM will have both casual / arcade features separated from hardcore simulation features in an interview from Brent Nielsen a few months ago. It will be nice to see some more information on this game sooner than later.

I really like TGC. However, if EA improves RM's Simulation features to be more intuitive and challenging along with better visuals and framerate than TGC, then I feel it will be competitive with TGC in those areas. It won't be competitive when it comes to number of courses and cost. I am looking forward to having more options in the Golf videogame market. Competition will be a good thing that has been badly needed for YEARS.....

Divot is right on. I had more fun playing Tiger on simulation than the golf club. I'm on Xbox and I don't play TGC just because of the framerate/visuals alone. To me it is also much easier to hit a straight shot in TGC than it was in TW14 on hsimulation. The only thing EA needs to fix is chipping around green, TGC tome has a better "feel" than what we have experienced in EA games.

I'm looking forward to finding out more info for the simulation users.

Two points: I find a lot of fun in both series (EA golf, and TGC) for slightly different reasons.

EA: licensed gear, real PGA courses, galleries, controls, challenge of upgrading golfer from crap to competitor

TGC: course creation (hours and hours and hours...LOL), number of courses available, no paying for DLC course packs (though I get why on EA), linear difficulty setting that is altered up and down by the courses themselves

Point two in reference to what I bolded in the quote: I also feel that is true for off the tee. In TW14, it's more difficult to keep it straight off the tee in sim. In TGC, it's relatively easier, but there's still the wind to figure, and the landing areas with bunkers and hard fairways have had me hit a fair number of second shots out of the sand.

In the end, I love both series and there's room for both. I'm jazzed for RM Golf for the PGA Tour again, building up my golfer, and building my golf bag up is fun for me as well. I've always enjoyed how EA golf plays, especially later versions. After a big re-work like this, I am hoping for the best and looking forward to more information.

Wow that looks spectacular. I'm interested to see more info about this game.
