Re: PGA TOUR Golf Shootout, with Authentic TPC Courses, Available Now For iOS and And

My biggest complaint with the game is that guys can't hit greens in regulation but routinely chip in from 12-15 yards out. From what I've seen and done if you line up your chip shot where you see a spinning disc around the hole and hit it perfectly it will go in all the time. Not easy for me to do it but I'm seeing a high percentage of my opponents accomplishing it.

I just can't believe this level of graphics was acceptable to anyone involved given where Android and iOS hardware is in 2019.

I'm sorry - I don't mean to be negative, but this looks horrendous visually.

To my eyes it's really no better than Tiger Woods 2012 for iPhone/iPad, which were very low end hardware relative to what's now on the market in both ecosystems.

To be fair I did just download it and try it.

I didn’t even make it through the tutorial as I simply can’t stand the mechanics they’ve chosen for the swing.

The graphics are sort of like Nintendo Wii perhaps?
Just as a reminder that’s a console that came out in 2006

No, the graphics in this game are not even Wii quality, IMO. I'm surprised at how dated this game looks myself!

You are right… Even that was too generous.
This just feels like some sort of cash grab with ads or something.

I’m pretty disappointed the PGA thinks that is a place they should have their brand.

Oh well. I never got into Tiger or Golf Club, so maybe this is the golf game for me. The graphics don't bother me at all.
