They haven't released any of the features, but the cover for next year's game went up on their Facebook page today:

TW PGA Tour 09 was my favorite but I really enjoy Road to the Masters too.  Hoping to see a little more dynamic crowds and a some better commentary in this edition.

 

So what do you guys think... Will we see McIlroy on the cover of PGA Tour 2015 or will the Tiger Woods franchise continue on?  Just doesn't have the same catch to it... Rory McIlroy PGA Tour 15...   Doesn't really roll off the tongue.

I think they will keep it Tiger Woods PGA. Our favorite golfers are still showcased on the cover so really the name shouldnt have to change. Tiger has made a big enough imprint on the golf game to own EA sports as far as golf goes. He gets my vote! As far as commentating... I HATE the commentators on every game especially 13. I guess i just play the game too much and am sick of hearing things like... "What was he thinking?" and "That was a not so stellar attempt" z1_censored.gif

did anyone have any luck using the kinect sensor on the '13 edition? I tried it on a demo and hated it.

I don't know if they'll ever change it. Look at the Madden series. I doubt most buyers today even know who John Madden was, and he's not even involved in the game anymore.

I have really enjoyed this game over the years, but it's disappointing how they try to make you purchase courses throughout the game. $60 isnt enough?

With that said, I will be buying this on the day it releases. d2_doh.gif

2014 announced and it's not even 2013. This is getting ridiculous. :P Just call it 2013 again and get back on the right schedule.

And now they've released the cover for the special edition ($70 rather than $60), which seems like it lets you play Augusta National pre-changes. I'll be interested to see if the special edition is available for 360 and PS3. The 2012 special edition was PS3-only, then it was released for both consoles last year, but on the EA Sports website it only shows the special edition on a 360 game case.

That actually sort of happened in the mid-2000s with the PS3 MLB series. They released MLB 06 in 2005, then when Sony changed developers from 989 Studios to SCE, they released MLB 06: The Show in 2006. That aligned it with the MVP Baseball and 2K baseball games, which released 2006 games in 2006, 2007 games in 2007, etc.

Any thoughts on good improvements here?

 

Looking to buy my first golf video game.  I've read that golf video games haven't had much worthwhile improvements in the last few years; why pay $60 for the new one when last year's version for $5 plays just the same?

WHY, BECAUSE ITS A NEW GAME. If your a true gamer you know why :p

post #12 of 97

I have 13 and Road To The Masters or 12 for Xbox360.  I really enjoy them, especially 13.  I don't know much about 14 but know a few players returning and some new.  Tiger Woods, Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald, Rickie Fowler, Graeme McDowell are just a few of the big returning names and new to the game are Bud Cauley and Ryo Ishikawa.

Why was Mickelson never in any of the games?

I got an advance copy to write a review for the main site, which will go up later in the week.

The rules they sent me for the timing are kind of strict. Any sort of preview I could give you could be surmised from material on EA's website anyway. I will say that while the improvements aren't huge, it is my favorite of the Tiger Woods games in a while.

Well I hope...hope to the gods...that they have made the swing a little more authentic (ie. making backspin dependent on the swing/where you strike the ball/if you have prayed to your god) instead of having to thump a backspin button!! I was pleasantly surprised when I played the demo to see that the ball did in fact checkup and spin back a bit...but not sure if that is a "fixed" feature OR if its simulating true backspin?

 

Secondly, be nice if the course was more alive! While I loved the last version playing on a dead empty course killed any immersion in the game.

The crowds in these games are really awful, to the point where I start thinking they should be scrapped to save the processing power for something worthwhile...like maybe trees that don't react like they're theatre drapes. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan. The way they all move in sync...I started to imagine them as appendages of the course, through which the course overmind can express itself.
