Since 2007, the Tiger Woods golf franchise has seen a number of improvements to gameplay, with the main reason being the release of the Nintendo Wii. With motion-control in place for the Wii edition, Nintendo quickly gathered the best version of the title although lacking in HD-graphics and the visuals of the PS3 and Xbox 360. This left EA in a tough-spot because they couldn't properly replicate the motion-based controls on the PS3 and Xbox 360 with the analog stick control. With the release of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2011, EA makes a valiant effort to create the immersion of the Wii title on the PS3 and Xbox 360 by incorporating a couple new control features and game modes. While most of the game will feel like previous Tiger Woods entries, the core mechanics have changed for the better and offer a more accurate and realistic sense of being on the course shooting 18-holes.
