I just downloaded 08 the other day and I love it. I'll have to start looking for 09.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I played the '09 demo the other night and I've got to agree that it's pretty awesome. I didn't care too much for '08, but '09 seems much better. What system do y'all plan on?

I've got my PC, but I hope to pick up a PS3 sometime soon. What's different about it then from 08? I like 08 cause it seems more realistic and not so arcadish...

Graphics wise '08 was fine to me. I just felt like '08 was not as smooth and slower than '09 is.

That really kinda sucks that you can't do that. Could you do that in previous years? It's kinda strange cause most of the other EA games will let you do that, especially NCAA & Madden. I used to create a player in NCAA and as a freshman and play him through 4 season and save him, then pop in Madden and draft him into the NFL.

i don't know. the only other one that i've even seen (aside from '08 and '09) was '06 and i didn't create a character on that one...and that one was on ps2. it looks like i'll have to go through the whole game face thing again, which takes FOREVER!

Yeah no joke, it's sad that I spent a couple hours creating my golfers appearance for 08. Give it time and you'll soon be able to put your face on a character in the game.

I love the new 3 click button method instead of using the analog stick. (I guess the 08 version had this too) They also have a new mode online where you and a friend can play at the same time instead of taking turns. I will at least have to rent this but there are a lot of great games coming out.
BTW: There are already several games that let you put your real face on a character online. I know Rainbow Six Vegas allows you to do that for sure and so does Tony Hawk.

My gf picked up tw2008 for me over the weekend. I have always liked golf games but seem to be having a hard time with his. I tried it for about an hour last night and I just cant seem to get a consistent shot. I tried the 3 click and the analog but seem terrible at this. Hopefully with practice I will get better. I was on fair difficulty but I think I will try easy tonight. My stats are all around 5 so I am sure thats a huge part of it too.

do yourself a favor and don't try to hold the controller normal and swing with your left thumb...that will just frustrate you. sit the controller on your lap, secure it with your left hand and swing with your right. if you want to "power up", tap the "L1" button with your left index finger. after i started doing that, i hit it in the fairway 99.9% of the time.
