Tiger Woods 13 brings some new ideas, but it's not the strongest in the series.
With EA's annual PGA series, adding many new features is challenging. Most of them only have a few new tweaks and features. In PGA 13, there's a few new additions, but it may not be enough to make people upgrade. For the core fans who play a lot of golf games, you will know not much changes in it's gameplay physics. In PGA Tour 13, a new swinging mechanic is introduced. It's solid, reliable and works well. Simply pulling back on the left stick and pulling up, allows you to perform swings more accurately. Pulling off a well perfected shot feels satisfying. There's also Kinect support, which hasn't been tested, but you can probably guess how well it would pan out.
New to PGA Tour 13 is Tiger Legacy mode. This has you playing though Tigers childhood years. You begin as a toddler, playing in the back yard, to eventually stepping onto the courts that made him famous. It's an interesting addition, but it's feels shallow. It not that rewarding, and it feels bland, when compared to Tournaments and career mode. There's still a career mode and multiplayer offering. However, not much has changed apart from it's bland Legacy Mode.
The best feature in PGA 13 is it's swinging mechanics. It's a welcoming addition that allows players to pull of shots with more precise. Unforchantly, there's nothing much new in content to recommend upgrading a previous instalment.
