PGA Tour 2K21 is the newest addition to the golf franchise in video games. It released at $60 on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Stadia. The game will be available on Xbox Series X and PS5 when they come out in November. PGA Tour 2k21 has received mostly positive reviews with a 7/10 on Imagine Games Network.

The main appeal to the game is the Career Mode. In this mode, players can create their own PGA Tour golfer and play against some of the most well known golfers around the world. Unfortunately, there are only a few courses from the real tour, but most of them are fun to play. The career mode is fun to play through and has over 30 different tournaments.

The presentation in the game is some of the best in any sports game I have played. The announcers give an authentic feel to a real golf experience and the crowd adds more immersion to the game. The scoreboards after the player finishes a hole or round look very similar to a CBS or FOX presentation.

Gameplay in this game is smooth and has a learning curve. The difficulty can easily be changed if it is too hard or too easy. At first the game is tough to learn the timing of the swing. Later on in Career Mode, the timing becomes a lot easier to master and it makes it much more enjoyable.

The replayability of the game is pretty decent across the different game modes. It can get a little repetitive when playing a bunch of rounds in a row. To mix things up, players can make custom courses for other players to try. These courses can be unique or replicas of real famous courses.

Overall, I would say the game is a really fun time for casual players like me. Hardcore golf fans would have problems with this game, but it’s fun for casual players. The main fault of the game to me is that it can get very boring after about two hours of playing. I recommend this game to any sports fan who wants to try a new game.
