I have almost completed my first PGA Tour season in Tiger Woods 10's career mode for Xbox 360. And I have to say, the flaws in this game lie in this mode.

First off, Tiger Woods is an absolute monster in career mode. He has won more than 10 events so far (despite taking a few weekends off), has a 5,000+ point lead in the FedEx Cup rankings, and shot a ridiculous -42 at Torrey Pines to win the San Diego Tournament.

This leads to issue No.2 with TW 10's career mode...scores ... Read More

For my very first blog entry here at Operation Sports, I felt it necessary to mull over my feelings about the upcoming slate of baseball video games. Spring Training is nearly here and the release dates of MLB 2K9 and MLB 09: The Show are less than a month away.
