EA posted some new screens today from the Xbox 360 version of Tiger Woods 08. The graphics are on par, if not slightly better than last year's title.
i hope they bring the sasquatch back like in tiger 05 on the 17th of the wooded course
Played so many they all run together. He was in 2004 and 2006 at Sahalee. 2005 he was in Edgewood, I believe. Prolly in 07 just haven't played it in a while to remember 100%.
Am I the only one that's disappointed in the graphics for this game? For games that are suppost to take advantage of next gen systems I don't really see any kind of major jump in graphics for this game compared to what was on the Xbox and PS2. I am glad to see EA moved this to a different studio to maybe give it some fresh legs but still I just feel that for being on the 360 and PS3 we should see better graphics then we are. Compared to other games designed to take advantage of the next gen hardware this game just doesn't do it for me.
Graphiclly isn't the game suppose to get better, i don't see anything special that they've done with it for the last year. EA is getting really lazy now.
this is the worst looking graphics I've seen in 5 years of any game on any console. is this for a nintendo DS? certainly that's not for the 360...
Are you kidding me .. I got TW '07 and the graphics were the same as the PS2 to be honest... everything seemed very flat in graphics... if it's only slightly better then most likely this game will not be on my plate for the '08 version... ***Edit*** I do want to say it did not detract me from having fun with the game.. just the statement irked me a bit .. that's all
Hell it could be in black in white for all I care. They just better not drop the ball on the online portion AGAIN! I have been a top 25 ranked player for the past two years and quit playing 07' 2 months after it came out because the online was horrible and pretty much unplayable. Stats broken, team play didn't work, 3 and 4 player matches froze and didn't score right, etc., etc. I gave them 06' since it was a launch title but 07' was unforgivable. Hopefully this new studio will actually care, but I have given up hope for EA and pray someone picks up Links again or makes a game like it. EA = Garbage Re-hashed Games...
Umm... these do look a little crappy? But man this game is a little addicting.... me and some buddies one time spent hours playing this thing..
Remeber when EA showed that tech demo of tiger woods tlaking and laughing. Where the hell did that go? These graphics are early PS2 graphics. Come on EA, we all know you are just about spitting games out for a profit, but please, put some work into your titles. The player models should be looking like CGI for sure. Its not like there is a TON of things going on in this game.
Update the commentators of the sport.. they are worhtless the entire game and don't sound as interesting as watching a live golf game... also the audibles with the sounds in the background get very redundant... that would help also... Oh how about ESPN actually playing in the backgroun while playing the game with the stat tracker instead of just in the menu.
Same EA rehash adding nothing new in terms of next gen to this title. Place this next to fight night and then see what this piece of $hit is.
I would prefer they dropped the 4 cardboard cutout (red shirt, blue shirt, yellow shirt, female green shirt) they copy/paste all over the board, it completely destroys the visual scenery of this already graphically weak game. What happened to the good ol' days of links386, I think 8 year old graphics with the real video capture are better then this. Didn't microsoft buy them 5 years ago? What happened there?
The graphics should look better than Fight Night at this stage...
But leave it to EA too rest on their laurels.
It looks almost as good as "Pebble Beach Golf links" my Dad and I used to play back in 1993. EA has come pretty far.
