True Aiming is about the best game play change Tiger Woods has seen in years. Even with a maxed out created player, or Woods himself, there is always a chance your ball will not land where you intended. Kudos to EA for True Aiming; it rocks.
But in every other aspect of the game, you may be asking yourself "where did that go?" There are only 12 courses, you may be used to 21 on the PS2 version.
Tiger 07 looks great though, and even sports better, fuller trees than the Xbox 360 version, where they looked a little flat. A small detail, sure, but it is immediately noticeable.
The ESPN integration is great, and online play is wonderful. The new One Ball mode is the highlight of multiplayer.
Sans the lack of courses, this is a great version of Tiger to pick up with your PS3.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB for Mild Violence. This game can also be found on: PC, PS2, PSP, Xbox, Xbox 360, Mobile Phone.
Tony Hawk's Project 8 — Wow did we get an overhauled looking Tony Hawk this year! It looks great, until you compare it to the Xbox 360 version.
Textures are crisper on the Xbox 360, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) lighting is used to subtle effect - in stark contrast, HDR blows out entire scenes on the PS3. There are also noticeable frame rate problems that hinder this version from time to time.
These are not major, and do not effect game play, but they are noticeable. But coming from the PS2, you are going to notice the next-gen visuals and be happy with that. Neversoft built this one from the ground up for next-gen, and it shows.
Thankfully the Bam-inspired ridiculous story is gone, it was getting old, now your goal is to crack the top eight amateur skaters, thus making it into the Birdman's Project 8.
But in true Tony Hawk fashion there is really only one new trick. This time around it is Nail the Trick, where you push both L3 and R3 to enter slow-mo and are able to kick and flip the board at will.
You will fall a lot when attempting Nail the Trick, but once you get the timing down, it works. The sometimes-clunky camera does not help, though, as it can be downright disorienting.
