Rory’s PGA tour is par for the course

Rory McIl­roy PGA Tour, Xbox One, PS4, Price: £49.99

Af­ter tak­ing a year off the fair­way, EA’s PGA Tour se­ries re­turns with North­ern Ir­ish master Rory as the cover star. And it just about makes par thanks to some solid fea­tures.

A com­pre­hen­sively cus­tomis­able swing sys­tem, of­fer­ing any com­bi­na­tion of clas­sic timed but­ton presses and dual-ana­logue stick pushes, makes it an ap­proach­able game for both ca­sual fans and those look­ing for sim­u­la­tion-level chal­lenges, too.

Rory McIl­roy PGA Tour has nailed the fun­da­men­tals of what makes a fun golf game, but it does feel slightly like a work-in-progress foun­da­tion for bet­ter, more fea­ture-rich gam­ing to come.

It’s cer­tainly a de­cent game, but you can’t help but feel that the next ver­sion might be the one that lands you a hole-in-one.
