It's a Guy Thing

PGA Tour 2K21

It’s been quite a while since we have seen a big-budget golf game arrive on consoles, with EA Sports’ Rory McIlroy PGA Tour last released in 2015. So it was a pleasant surprise when 2K Games announced they will be releasing the next big golf game, PGA Tour 2K21. 2K Games have become synonymous with big sporting titles, especially the superb NBA2K series, so a lot of golf fans were over the moon with the news. But has 2K got a hole in one with PGA Tour or are they stuck in a sand trap on the back 9?

As with any golf game in the past, the biggest question is how it plays and thankfully PGA Tour 2K21 perfectly captures the intricacies of the sport. With the inclusion of Pro Vision, Distance Control and Putt Preview, you have full control over where that little ball goes after your powerful swing. Of course for golf pro’s this will be easy to grasp and they will be sinking birdies left right and center. Fortunately, 2K has also thought about us golf newbies with handicaps so bad we are legally not allowed to print it. PGA Tour 2K21 includes real-time tutorials, tips and specific shot suggestions to allow you to look the Pro on every single hole.

The game itself looks amazing as one would expect from a big-budget 2K game. With world-famous courses from the TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas, TPC Sawgrass, TPC Scottsdale, TPC Deere Run, TPC Twin Cities, East Lake Golf Club, and TPC San Antonio to name but a few. Real-world scanning brings the fairway, green, bunkers, trees, lakes and ponds to life. True-to-form PGA TOUR broadcast presentation features slick graphics, dynamic cut-scenes and a seamless replay system, all anchored by the play-by-play commentary of Luke Elvy and Rich Beem makes the game even more authentic.

Of course, where you play means nothing if you have no one to play with and PGA Tour 2K21 has made sure to include some of the biggest names in golf today. From Sergio Garcia to Justin Thomas to Gary Woodland and Jim Furyk to name but a few. Naturally, this being a 2K game, the MYCAREER mode takes center stage. Create your own player and personalize them with equipment and apparel from all the world-famous gold brands today. Then take your newly created player and prove what it takes to become the FedExCup Champion. Take on PGA TOUR Pros during your very own career, earning rewards and gear along the way. As always this mode will steal hours upon hours of your life as you battle your way through the card to prove you are indeed the best golfer around, without ever having to get up early for tee off.

PGA Tour 2K21 is an absolute blast to play and is a welcome return to golf gaming on console. It’s the entire golf package and a must-play for fans of the oldest sport in existence. Great gameplay and incredible graphics makes this a must-have to scratch that golf itch.
