Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005

Overall: overall, I would say that this is a decent golf game, but I think I will skip out on this title next season unless ea gets their act together and put an effort into making a very good game. graphics are not great, sound is okay at best, and the gameplay is too easy. ea does provide a good number of courses, and some of my favourites such as TPC at Sawgrass, and St. Andrews. I enjoyed the addition of the Legend Tour, but I find it can be tedious to play because you have to play these awful golfers, that and the pros that are in it are easy to beat. Overall, I like the concept of the Legend Tour, but it could be done much better. The legend scenarios are a waste of time. I find its just a quick addition to the game to try and make it last longer. who cares about playing them, there is just no point. the pga tour season is okay, but from what i have played, its not very authentic for a game with the title PGA Tour in it. tiger proofing is a nice addition to make the courses much harder, but you are very limited to what you can change. the gameface feature lets you create yourself as closely as you can to resemble yourself, even your own swing which is a very good idea. with this all said, this is a good game, a good buy, but this game has much more potential to be an excellent game.

Gameplay: the game is simple to play, just pull the thumbstick back and push it back forward, and away goes the ball. using the power boost can give you the extra yards you need, and if you're ball is a little off, you can spin the ball in the air to adjust the way it lands. the spin feature is very unrealistic, but wow, can you ever shoot low scores. putting can be difficult, but with caddy-tips on, you'll be draining putts all the time. if that weren't it, there is a tiger vision button that shows you exactly where to line your putt and sink it 99% of the time; however, you can only do this no more then four times in a round. this makes putting too simple, and on top of that, all you do is line the putt up and swing. there is nothing present to have you hit the ball at certain speeds as compared to other games such as links. i believe putting is too simple in this game, as with the rest of the game.

Graphics: awful. these graphics are very sub-par for the xbox's capabilities. more time needs to be spent polishing up the envirnoment. the golfer models are fine, but could be done better. i like the gameface features, but i could never get my character to look like myself, but i think that is just me

Audio: the sound is ok, can't say its bad or anything since there isn't much to talk about. the announcers can get annoying like they usually do with other ea games, but they also have some funny stuff to say with insulting and correcting each other. the music in the gameface menu is awful when you edit your character all the time. why must it be the same stupid song over and over, and why must it be an awful song in the first place. thankfully, you can turn it off.

Suggestions: -> more golfers such as LEFT HANDED GOLFERS
->in the legends tour, use real golfers instead of made up golfers
-> get rid of justin timberlake, there is no reason to have him in this game, this is golf, not ***** tv
-> spend more time on the graphics since they are very sub-par for the xbox
-> if you have a sound of the crowd cheering you on, would you not think you should see them......
-> the game is too easy (shooting 20-30 under par all the time, can be fun, but gets boring after awhile)
-> make a more authentic pga tour season, add more "actual" tournaments that are "actually" played on the tour
-> for all the equipment that you have, WHY IS THERE STILL NO TITLEIST
-> in general, ea, you have the money, so spend it to make better games, because most of your games are sucking now a-days

Overall Score: 7.0 / 10 ESPN NHL 2K5

Overall: One of the best hockey games i've played to date. i'm a loyal ea sports fan, but i decided it was time for a switch, and i am glad i did it. the game is much more of a sim and its gameplay is very realistic. the party game mode is a sweet addition and is very well done. most of the games are pretty !&%$@#* fun and can get really competitive. franchise mode has a lot of depth to it in which you can control your franchise's farm team, hire coaching staff,etc.

Gameplay: love the gameplay. it is much much better then ea's arcade like hockey. it took awhile for me to get adjusted to the way the players skated because it is much more realistic than ea's. i find that it can be very difficult to score goals in this game. when you do score, it has a very rewarding feeling. the hitting is pretty good too. love the hip checks. only complaint is when playing against people, lots of penalities, but that can be adjusted with sliders

Graphics: very polished up presentation, could be done better. some of the cutscenes are funny. i found some of the player models good, but they could be touched up a bit more. overall, good graphics

Audio: great sound! announcers do an excellent job calling the action, but they do get somewhat repetitive after awhile. some of the sounds do get cutoff when you push a button to skip cutscenes during breaks in play.

Suggestions: spend more time fixing bugs before you release your products. 2. change the ending cutscene's for fights, watching both players fall to ice looks stupid and seems unrealistic for a sim game. 3. maybe add some stuff from the nfl series such as the halftime show, but summaries in between periods for better presentation

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10
