If you’ve never tried a Golf video game before, PGA Tour 2K21 is a great choice to get started with. This title is a completely new and revamped take on the sport in a more accessible medium. From the comfort of your home, you can experience a wide range of courses and aspects of a classic golfing experience.
The Golf Club (TGC) series has been renamed PGA Tour 2K, although it might just as easily have been renamed Dark Holes due to its uncompromisingly realistic depiction of the sport. In its earlier iteration, it demonstrated to its players all of the forgiving nature of a FromSoftware game. A nice change of pace if I’m being honest.
To make it more appealing to a larger audience, PGA Tour 2K21 has placed a slew of more standard videogame guidelines and aids on top of its emphasis on realism. As a consequence, PGA Tour 2K21 facilitates a members club that anybody can join, but it still has some rough around the edges, as do many fine golf courses.
The greatest parts of TGC's gameplay have been kept for the most part. The greens continue to be read in the same way. Fades, draws, and club selection all follow the same philosophy. I was able to take up the controller and assault the greens on a level identical to what I'd seen in prior iterations in no time.
Even if I had no prior knowledge, the gameplay is simple enough for me to comprehend. I'm not convinced the gameplay is on par with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters, which was my favorite of EA's golf series in terms of sheer pleasure. PGA Tour 2K21, on the other hand, is unlikely to disappoint any virtual golf lover with its playability.
Fairness in Difficulty
PGA Tour 2K21 offers six swing difficulty levels, which is quadruple the amount of swing difficulty levels in The Golf Club 2019. These levels may be further adjusted to meet your ability level. Beginners may disable swing time and enjoy a lot more forgiving experience on one of three amateur levels, albeit these are still more difficult than the EA Sports golf games. On the other hand, online competitors can play on Pro, Master, or Legend—a challenge level that needs incredibly consistent and accurate strokes to excel. It's great that HB Studios expanded the difficulty settings without interfering with the primary experience.
PGA Tour 2K21 builds on The Golf Club series' largely great foundation, providing the most realistic and pure golf experience in a game to date.
There are still some little annoyances that may take you out of the experience, but it provides a more accurate representation of the PGA Tour schedule and a more comfortable, simplified approach to MyPlayer. PGA Tour 2K21, for the most part, captures the unique enchantment of the game of golf beautifully.
