world golf tour could be the salvation for golf gamers
You won´t do -10 in 9 holes
You won´t drive 450 yards
This could be the real golf game simulator!
My review about "world golf tour Beta testing"
CPU used for Testing the game was:
Intel centrino, core 2 duo - 2,2 Ghz, P 9300, nvidia 256 MB 8600 GTM, display LCD, windows vista
Internet connection 4 Mega
Score 7.3 out of 10
I´ve played games since links 1998 to tiger woods 2008, I have played all golf games on the market and I´ve played real golf since 6 years old, now I´m 33, So I can say honestly that this game is going for the right way. I´m really big surprise that i can play a gre8 game golf using Fashplayer without buying a CD.
I´ve seen as all the golf games are worst nowadays, in 2008, than in 1998 doing the golf games to look arcade as Tiger woods with pathetic cameras for kids, so I´m really big surprised that i can play a gre8 game golf using Fashplayer without buying a CD, definitly world golf tour seems to be the salvation for golf gamers.
The game is gr8, the scenary graphics is gr8 too, however i believe that there are some things that could be fixed to have a complete game golf.
1)★ how the ranking works? is the average score in my whole history? or it takes the last 10 games or something?
If the ranking is calculate besed in the all score history that won´t be a good
way to do, i believe, because when a new player start to play this
game the problability is that he´ll start with a huge scores as 46, 47,
40 or up because obviously they don´t know very well the game., So
their players will never go to the top scores ever for the way "whole
history average score". Moreover there are some players who play a few
games, and they appeared in the top rank in spite of players who play a
lot of matches, so it´s hard to do a score of 32 in 38 games in a row,
than 32 in only 2 games, so the average score doesn´t work as it should
for that case.
I believe that how to calculate the ranking, should be a sum
of multiples factors in the way to calculate each player rank so in the
future any player could be a top player and don´t be wanted for the
sacore that you did in the past. The ecuations to calculate the rank
could be for instance:
.- Average score
.- Don´t have the posibility to forfeit games and play only once
a not to play a lot games until the score is too low enough to be
saved in the web .
.- If you win better players than you or if you win a top 10 players you will recieved more points
.- If you do hole one,
.- Tournaments position
.- Extra bonus for excelents shoot, and so for
Perhaps I am wrong, and the rank is calculate with a different
system that I´ve said above.★
2) Sound: need to improve the driver and iron sound. As I´ve played both, virtual and real golf, one thing that we as golfer like the most, is the sound driver on the tee shot. When you hit the ball just in the middle and the ball go in the air right perfect you´ll hear that amazing sound.!! or the full PW going right to the flag and hear the sound of the ball hitting the humid green.
for instance: down there are some real sound driver and Irons that i´ve found on internet, as good as we play and hear in the real live.
The sound of the driver must be complete different than, 3 wood, 5 wood. etc., and it the same for Irons sound, as iron 3 comparated with iron 8 or 9, who really know golf can say that.
That seem really unimportant items, but ask for any golf players and I 100% sure that the answer we´ll be the same than i´ve put above.
3) Graphic player more photorealistic: the player graphic is very poor if we comparated the scenary graphic with the player graphic. It seems to be a copy, paste and cutting using photoshop and save it in a very poor quality resolution graphic, the player graphic seems to be a game of 90´s and not for 2008.
4) The player need to improve his/her swing doing more fluent between start the swing and finished the swing, like link LS 2000 (microsoft) very realistic .
for instance: Best swing players ever PGA
5) Improve Drivers and Irons graphics and diferents include differents desings
6) More courses definetly
7) Don´t let the people quit, when they are playing a bad game because they are cheating so they won´t save that score. It´s a complicate item because of if a player´s lost their conection for any reason and your penalized them with a huge score, he never won´t recover their status , and that could be unfair, complety defferent is the person that to porpuse leave the game to get advantage of that. So must be another option that the quitter couldn´t leave the game.
Create a ranking of quitters or something like that
8) Could be nice with crowed for tournaments, but with really good quality graphic and sound, if don´t., it´s ok without them.
9) When you have a tree in front of you, this tree don´t have any effect in the game because we´ll never hit the tree.
10) The river and lake water could be animated
11) The camera is better as tee shot and not with angle
.- Score under par in red.
.- Country flag together with the player name
.- faster loading, improving the servers.
.- Online profile , when you click the player name, the profile must show the best stroke score for that course and for that player that you´ve clicked on, as you see full profile.
13) Tournaments: Entry tournaments for differents countries
14) In the green, the balls need to be replaced by markers. When I am going to do my put, sometimes the ball of my opponent is just in front of my ball, so this isn´t good.
15) Chat room where we can talk before and after games.
16) The flags in the hole have to be changed in differents position.
17) In the VGT player will be good to select:
Tier / Country / Ranking
18) in control, a option to do back spin .
