Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR News Post


With Rory McIlroy PGA Tour shipping with a limited number of courses, the game's case in reviews wasn't helped by its shallow mode offerings.

With at least two new courses in the DLC being known, it certainly appears EA is committed to at least some post-release support of the game.

If you had the choice, would you choose to have more licensed Golfers, courses, or additional features added into Rory? Vote in our poll and leave a comment below on which you prefer most!

I may be in the minority but I don't think licensed golfers matter much. I tend to play with my character(who no longer gets XP in play now w/ friends) and find the courses matter more. More than anything I'd like to see an update that adds depth to the career mode.

I have not played this game yet, but in general the more courses you have the more replay-ability.

No question courses for me ... yes I would like a better Be a Pro experience but even that would begin by having more courses to play over the course of a season. Pretty much the only time I ever played using the licensed golfers in all the years I've played the EA golf game was the year they did the Ryder Cup ... otherwise all I need is to see real names on the leader board when I'm playing tournaments.

This game needs a better career mode. That includes both courses and features. More courses would be great, but even if you add those to the career mode, career and create a golfer is still pretty dull.

This is spot on. Great gameplay, beautiful courses. Just a COMPLETE lack of depth and reality in tour mode (plus courses and golfers, of course). I started career mode and ranked 64th after my 1st tourney. Even though they kept saying only the top 50 get PGA cards, guess what. I got mine anyway. This RPG element makes the game utterly unrealistic.

Courses for me without question. That's what drives a golf game. This was my most anticipated game this year but lack of courses is keeping me from buying it. I'm still looking for any reason possible to buy it but they really aren't giving any reason. Lack of information and painfully slow dripping DLC isn't going to help. At this rate it will be next summer before it even compares to a game that came out over two years ago. I can't justify paying $60 for a game with so few courses and essentially no information on what other courses are coming in the future or when. Unless they announce something big soon like several courses with a few big names, there's no reason to buy it until months from now when its fleshed out and the price has dropped. I really, really hope they change my mind since I was dying to get this game, but with so few courses and information its not worth it. Graphics and customization are cool but courses are the most important part. (See: The Golf Club)

courses and depth to career mode, which is in part helped by more courses.

Courses and more depth to career mode (like TW14)
 
# 9 rmaccari @ 07/28/15 04:27 PM
The most important thing is to add new real courses and included in the calendar of the career mode

Courses -> Features - > Golfers in my opinion

I think most people will make there own pro so def courses

there needs to be more courses more golfers and way more equipment and gear to earn/unlock in the be a pro mode. right now there is waaaaayy to much "EA Sports" equipment and clothing and not enough Nike, Callaway, Puma, etc to unlock or choose from

Personally for me to buy this game it needs to have a lot more real golfers and real courses in the game. Until it gets to atleast where the last EA golf game was on the old consoles it will be a no buy for me unfortunately, so I do hope both of these issues gets addressed as I do really miss not having a golf game.

I pre-ordered and got TPC Scottsdale and played through my season and didnt see it on the schedule? Am I missing something? Hopefully I dont have to start my career over?

It's only playable in play now until August 11 when it will be available as dlc to everyone and playable in every game mode.

INDIVIDUALIZATION!!! (thats right). Real player swings. On this game, basically every player has the same swing. They need to get rid of that one standard swing. How hard could it be to get all the real PGA tour players in studio for a day and capture their swing. This game needs INDIVIDUALIZATION. Rickie Fowler's back swing is SOO much faster than Jordan Speith but in this game, its the same. Come on....just look at what its done for the NBA 2K series.....INDIVIDUALIZATION!!!

The pro career mode needs a lot of work. If you have the golfer's name in the leaderboard, then you should have those golfers. And the EA Sports invitational is considered a major because they couldn't get the masters or the Ryder cup. Possibly the two most iconic courses in golf, Pebble Beach and Augusta National aren't part of the game!! EA, instead of having these dumb fantasy courses, why don't you include real ones?
 
# 18 sarlndr @ 07/29/15 11:39 AM
I'd have to go with more courses and more customization options. As @CT Pitbull said, there's way to much EA gear and equipment in the game. They could add more and hopefully they will.

Why didn't they use NBA Lives phone app so we could put our face in the game? That would have helped out a lot with personalization. Missed opportunity right there.

So glad I pre-ordered lol I love the game but its becoming stale with the lack of depth

More courses all the way!

New features and career mode improvements in a very close second.

More licensed golfers... completely insignificant for me.
