Ernie Els Golf 2008 on Sale!


Anyone going to buy it? If you have it would you recommend getting it or would I be better waiting for Tiger Woods Golf by EA?

Absolutely not recommended. I would wait for Tiger Woods. I have it and hardly ever (more like never) play it. It's not that it is such a bad game, just poorly implemented. You need to play and win a series of mini challeges against computer opponents until you can finally just pick the game up and play a round. I hated that function. I just want to pick up the game and play - not be stuck playing a computer opponent for 9 holes.

$2.99 is a decent price, but I think that you will ultimately be disappointed with Tiget Woods around the corner. As soon as that one is released, Ernie Els will be immediately banished from my phone never to be played again.

Wait for Tiger Woods. I have GL Golf and, although it isn't real pretty, it has 5 courses (soon to be 6) and is in true 3D all the way. Ernie Els has only 1 course, which was enough for me to pass it by. I'm anxiously awaiting Tiger Woods.

Edit to add: After watching that Ernie Els video, DEFINITELY stay away from it. If you just can't wait til the 31st, get GL Golf. It actually plays pretty well. Decent ball physics, camera follows the ball in flight, in 3D.

This title was horrible. What a waste of money. Els allowed them to put his name on this?
