Fans of Tiger Woods PGA Tour golf games are well aware that some years are bigger than others. While not remarkably different than past games, the new career mode now takes you from working your way up from an amateur to the coveted PGA Tour. A lot of the online buzz surrounds the Caddie Mode, where you're paired up with a caddie who gives you helpful advice based on the course, wind, and such (and they can "level up" like a role-playing game, too). Unlike past games, you can tackle fun "Masters moments," where you can relive some of the best moments from Masters history as you vie for the green jacket. Major fans of the series won't be disappointed with this sequel as there are enough new goodies to justify the purchase, but casual players might think twice if they're still happy with last year's game. Note: The Wii version supports the Wii Balance Board (primarily for balance), plus it offers 25 courses instead of 19, and minigames, too; visually it's not as good as the high-definition Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games (which can be played using the Move controller.)

Online interaction: In both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game, you can play online with 2 to 4 players. Plus, there will be downloadable content, says EA Sports. Gamers who play each other online can also chat using a headset microphone, which means kids could potentially hear offensive language.
