Tiger Woods 07 is identical to the 360 version. There are a few visual tweaks, mostly with textures, but you’re getting the same visuals either way. Courses are full of little details that really pump some life into an otherwise sleepy game. Crowds line up at every hole and will sometimes jockey around for a better view of the ball.
Each of the professional players looks nearly identical to their real-life counterparts. Sometimes the likenesses are almost creepy. Tiger, of course, looks the best, but the others don’t look all that bad either. Although they share some animations, each have their own little quirks, like their swing stance and follow-through.
One of the more entertaining aspects of Tiger Woods 07 is creating your own golfer in Game Face mode. Over the years this has become one of my favorite aspects of the series and the 07 version only makes things better. There is no limit to the number of things you can tweak and it is very easy to lose hours making sure your digital likeness looks perfect. Of course, if this isn’t your thing you can always choose a pre-made golfer, but where is the fun in that?
Golf is a quiet game and the sound design reflects that. While on the course, ambient sounds softly play all around. It would be peaceful were it not for the commentators. Maybe it was my poor play, but the commentary is pretty negative most of the time. I probably would have been better off with those two old Muppet hecklers.
