Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 is a realistic iPhone golf game that challenges you to become the best on the PGA Tour.
There's a bunch of different game modes to play in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12. As with the console version, of course, the main focus is the PGA Tour. You play out a full season of events, winning money to exchange for points and equipment to better you as a player.
Other game modes in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 include the Tiger Challenge, which consists of a series of quicker mini games with money at stake. The Play Now menu allows you to play a single round, whether it be stroke play, match play, skins, stapleford, etc.
There are some multiplayer options in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12, too. You can play rounds locally over WiFi or Bluetooth, or, interestingly, tackle your Facebook friends in a nearest the pin competition. These are good fun but it would've been nice to have seen full, real time online multiplayer and Game Center support in there.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 features eight different real life courses and eight professionals from the Tour. You can create your own golfer too, using the easy-to-use editor.
In terms of its gameplay Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 is excellent. The swipe to swing system works very well, as does the way you can spin the ball while it's in flight. Sure, hitting the ball sweetly isn't easy to master but with enough practice and upgrading your skills you'll appreciate the benefit of having such a precise control system.
As you'd expect, graphically, Tiger Woods is impeccable. From the in-game menus to the on-course action, the visuals in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 are gleaming. Such a shame then that the in-game commentary is so poor. Commentary pops up very infrequently and when it does it's not particularly insightful.
On the whole, though, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 is a highly enjoyable iPhone sports sim, and a must-have for any gamer who likes golf.
