    I love this game to death!

    I have been playing this game daily on Xbox Live since before Thanksgiving. It really is a fun game to play. So is anyone else here still enjoying this game?

    Nope. Great game though.

    I swore I'd never get a game with the words Tiger Woods in the title...but with a buddy working at EA and able to get me any game for $20 or cheaper, I became a hypocrite.

    Tiger Woods 2007 is pretty fun and it's currently occupying my video game time.

    Though it's not even close to the glory that Links was...

    No.

    I think it is way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over-rated.

    I also think its Online play is overrated, but its still fun. I just find the lack of respawn normal deathmatch mode with a few bigger maps and only 8 people hurt it.

    I just think the mechanics are clunky and clumsy otherwise ruining what is actually a pretty neat little team dynamic they have going on.


    If it didn't look as good as it does, there is no way people would be so nutso over it.

    Not playing it anymore. The game was pretty easy to blow through in a weekend, even on the harder difficulty settings. It's fun while it lasts, but once you play through it twice all the glitches start to become apparent and the fun starts to get sapped out.

    I picked it up a couple weeks ago when I bought my 360. Haven't much of a chance to play through it this week, been busy with work. From little bit I've played, it's fun, but a bit clunky in some areas.

    I played through the first level then lost interest in it.
    t's sat there while other games have held my interest much longer.

    I need to play through a co-op run on hardest difficulty to finish up more offline achievements.

    And to hear the lovely end credit music again.

    i was hooked on the online for a while, but now its so so... its too hard to find a game and have all your mates on the same team. if you can get that organised it comes into its own then.

    I traded mine in months ago. The online set-up was a joke. If it had any sort of lobby system that allowed friends I would still be playing it.

    I do agree that the multiplayer needs a couple new multiplayer modes and some bigger maps, but it is still a blast to play once you get some buddies in a game with you.

    I only played the Single player and a bit of the multiplayer. I gave up because most people could kill you in five seconds, and I was always put on the bad team.

    While it was a blast to play through, it's too short for anything but a rental.

    Not much as of late, due to me playing Warcraft and Crackdown, but I do want to pick it back up.
