The new putting system worked better when Links did it back in 2003; the simultaneous four-player online mode worked just fine in the very earliest days of Xbox Live. Modern Tiger Woods is among the most sophisticated online games ever made but like everything else, EA nailed Tiger's Live play back in 2007 and have been only tweaking ever since.
And yet Tiger '08 was such a high point even two years of spinelessness can't keep Tiger '10 from being the best golf game ever, for what it's worth. Congratulations, Tiger. In a market without competition, you win again. By far the most wonderful thing about Tiger is he's the only one! Heeeeeeee's the only one.
