This Can Certainly Lead To A Feeling Of Deflation

Career Mode also returns for Tiger Woods 14, and though it’s mostly the same mode that people familiar with the series have played before, it has some elements that are worthy of note. Firstly, and not just limited to the Career Mode, is experience. If you decide to create your own golfer, most of your time spent with Tiger Woods will be focused on levelling him or her up, granting him/her more powerful abilities and new equipment. If that sounds like an RPG, that’s because it’s pretty much the same thing. New levels yield more powerful equipment, some of which even come with stat modifiers, and each level gives players the chance to assign increased attributes to their golfers as well.

What’s useful, particularly in the Career Mode, is that each time you level up, your home screen will provide you with the chance to view a screen that presents you with what you’ve just unlocked, saving you the hassle of searching through multiple screens in the hopes of finding your new items.There is a downside to Career Mode, and this spreads throughout the game, although the instance in Career Mode itself left a particularly sour taste in my mouth. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 comes with the largest number of golf courses on-disc of any Tiger Woods game so far, with 20 courses available from the get-go. That’s a fairly decent figure – there’s no argument from me about that. What’s more, I have no argument with the fact that EA has decided, from launch, to offer over 15 more courses as downloadable content, for those who want more variety in their virtual golfing experiences.

Instead, what left such a bad taste in my mouth is that, throughout Career Mode, your main objective is to reach the PGA Tour, essentially becoming one of the ‘names’ of the golfing world. Doing so is supposed to be a big achievement, allowing you to play with the big boys and make your mark on the game. So, excited as I was to start playing against the crème de la crème of the sport, I selected the first course, Shanghai, ready to show off my skills. Instead of being taken to the course, I am presented with a pop-up stating words to the effect that I do not yet own this course and therefore cannot play it; however, I can purchase it from the game’s store if I want to. As I said, it’s not the fact that there’s DLC for this game (from launch) that upsets me, it’s that golf fans will come into the Career Mode expecting to play the entirety of the PGA Tour, and the first course that you select is unavailable.

This can certainly lead to a feeling of deflation, particularly if you’ve worked hard to get to that point. It is possible to skip the event and carry on with the rest of the PGA Tour, but the fact that this happens on the very first course you select makes it a little more painful to bear.Aesthetically, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is pretty much what we’ve come to expect from the Tiger Woods series, in that the courses, players, and crowds are fairly strong visually, even if the environments are (understandably) a little sparse and some of the camera angles are a little strange (usually they’re a little too far away, but I also had instances of replays showing through trees, or a loading screen focusing on the back of my golfer’s knee).

The audio is soothing and matches the preconceptions of the golfing world, even if the menu music does occasionally stray a little too close to the realm of muzak for some. Bird song, animal noises and even the sounds of distant planes flying overhead serenade you while you’re playing your round, and on a couple of occasions I found myself slipping deeper and deeper into my chair and my eyelids feeling a little too heavy. It’s a nice break from the norm to be able to play a game without being on the edge buy fifa 14 coins of my seat with adrenaline coursing through my veins, and I certainly came away from Tiger Woods feeling more relaxed than I usually do after a gaming session, even after a particularly bad round. The one downside that I did find to the audio was in the commentary, which, like in many sports games, does get a bit repetitive.
