Macsimum News has posted a new review of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008, the latest incarnation of the popular golf sim. The game gives golfing enthusiasts a wide range of play and customization options, and offers the chance to go head to head against PGA legends. Macsimum News gave Tiger Woods 2008 a score of 4 out of 10.
From the review:
Why does Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 sometimes lock up? The folks at EA say they’re aware of “a graphical issue that occurs with an iMac 7.1 that uses the ATI 2600 HD video card.” This is caused by a driver issue with the video card that, per EA, will be addressed in a system update by Apple later this month.To read the full review click over to the link below.

Then there’s the problem of graphics corruption. If you use a system that has less than 256MB of VRAM, you may experience graphical corruption if you set the Tree Texture Detail to maximum. To resolve this, try using a lower Tree Texture Detail setting.
For video cards with 256MB of video RAM, only the 1600×1200 resolution is available. Meanwhile, some video cards will experience graphical corruption while running in 1600×1200 resolution. If you experience any graphic anomalies while running the game in 1600×1200 resolution, EA recommends lowering your game resolution to resolve these issues.
If that’s not bad enough, on some NVIDIA 8600 and ATI X2600-based machines, graphical corruption and hard locks may occur at higher detail levels. In these instances, set the graphics quality to a lower setting and restart the game.
