It is VERY DISAPPOINTING when WGT programs a very good shot to go horribly wrong! Example: adjust for wind direction- adjust for distance- hit the meter on the nose- then watch my ball fly to places unknown! It happens at least every three times in an 18 hole game. This effect takes the fun out of really trying.

Haven't been playing this game for very long, and you don't have to figure out the ripoff. First let let me say that the game is put together well, great graphics and in game realism, I'll give them 2 stars for this.
However, in order to compete in the WGT world you must upgrade your equipment, apparel and enhancements. In order to do this you need in game credit. You can get these a couple different ways. Watch lots of add videos for 2 credits a piece, take surveys or buy them at 1 cent a piece. Well that doesn't sound bad,,, until you actually start looking at their prices. Top of the line Putter in WGT is the "Max CC Putter" and will cost you 400,000 credits, If your bad at math that's $4000 real American Dollars from your bank account for a virtual putter that does not really even exist! Now I for one don't really care how much it costs a company to develop a game, all I care about is how much it will cost me to play it. I wouldn't pay $400 for real 'hold in your hand" putter, let alone $4000 for one that isn't real at all. Problem is, for the cost of playing and being competitive in this game? I figure maybe a couple more days before I become bored and delete it,,, on second thought, maybe a couple of hours.

I never read anyplace where it's against the rules for improper language, is there one? I really like to hate this game but to have my account disabled for a week because someone's feelings were hurt cry me a flippen river since when did this world become one big baby? I have read the rules and not once did it say improper language and what is improper any of the staff ever been golfing in real life??? In these rules does it state anywhere about the other $#*! that happens in the game how some people can almost pause the game to make you wait forever?? I just don't understand how improper language can get your account disabled.

Game is rigged to get you to spend money. No way shots run 20 yards past the hole up hill. Great graphics but very bad game play.
Review by ChiTownSandy Goldenfeld3 months ago
Don't ever play this game, ever. Spread the word. People hack the game to get coins to get better equipment and you hardly ever win if you play normally and earn coins. Players have in excess of 150 million coins where they have hacked into the game. Please don't spend money on extra coins, the games are rigged. Play something else, it's absolutely atrocious! !!!!!!

Nothing to do on this game except waste money, get frustrated with all the cheaters and lose the plot with inconsistent game play. Just another good idea messed up by greedy designers who don't care about their customers just making money.

Fun game to play but frustrating to the the point you have no other choice but to believe it is rigged for you to spend money to buy upgraded equipment. Examples of what I have experienced is; ball rolling right over the hole on put 5 ft. and longer, when teeing off, wind elevation and distance the exactly same on previous shots same hole, using the same aim and distance but shot goes way off the desired mark, these a just s few that stands out and frustrates the hell out of me. I will not spend money for the same issues happen.

WGT are a joke. After 2 [email protected]#king years they close my account saying I have multiple accounts, I DO NOT. They answer your email with a standard statement.
6 more emails sent and still no reply. I don't spend money with them so I can only guess that's the reason.
The more you level up the further you go back on the tee, so much so that on some holes it's impossible to reach the fairway from the tee when hitting over rough. You have to spend on better clubs that's can get you that extra distance.

110yd 9 iron max, lets get real. You wouldn't be allowed on these courses if you were that bad. You can still shoot under par but it comes down to judging roll-out since clubs have no height. Even in a pay to play sense the game makes no sense.
Review by Dehan6 months ago
in my opinion all this site wants is your money. look at the graphics......they gotta pay for those somehow. seems like they suck you in as a beginner and then make it increasingly harder for you to win without spending more money on more powerful clubs. If you stay with beginner club and don't spend money for upgrades, you drive at 250 and the guy who pays drives 300+. I think you can win more at Bingo and save a lot of money in the process.

Played for 2 years are so. Level 83 / 72.8. Now I am getting varying levels of experience points after competing from zero (very often) to 5% or so and it is becoming very difficult to progress.
I have spent very little money with WGT so I suppose I am meant to suffer.
Graphics good, games can freeze a lot at certain times of the day to a point where you just want to switch off, very frustrating. I will continue but with much less interest than before.
If you want to play be prepared and read the reviews so you are not surprised.

Suit is for promising better scores while producing worse results, after a purchase. Sound familiar? Interstate criminals, all of them. The more you spend, the worse your results! Avoid this site like the plague. The positive reviews are obviously employees! There are no real opponents! Only sham players. It's easy to play the game and lose 15 matches in a row. Now the practice portion of the game is as crooked as the match portion!

I'm a lvl 76 Master 68 avg,haven't spent a dime and never will. I have every club I want just by watching videos. The game is challenging but not unfair,if it were easy it wouldn't be fun.
Review by Maryjude7 months ago
This game is very good in comparison to its competitors, however it could be so much better if it’s servers were more stable and less of the erratic shot outcomes which many people believe is purposefully created by the programmers to increase in game purchases.
Many reviews in various locations yet none higher than 3 out of 5, primarily because of weird and random shot outcomes upsetting players.
I’ve experienced many of these and cant explain or justify it other than strange algorithms and programming.
I wont be investing any further funds on it as something isnt quite right which I cant control.. they also dont like to be told that’s what people think.. numerous people’s game accounts closed when making noises about it.

The other reviews say it all, have a read. I've personally stopped wasting time on it. This game is the perfect example why there should be a Board for Games Control for ones which are too addictive and frustrating.

I had an account I have had for many years and even spent money on it. So one day they thought my account had been hacked, so they closed it. After countless emails back and forth, my account remains closed and the money I have invested in the game is lost. So for me a clean money machine. !!!

Games totally screwed up as of 1/28/19. It will steal your money so don't buy anything! It's not loading properly. It's popping up windows in the middle of play, meters jump, locks up etc. Contact email for WGT broken as well and resets form and won't send. Been doing this for weeks and owes tons of money to people and looks like a lawsuit has been started. Plat at own risk it's a joke!

I've been trying for days to hit the ball. Never have!!!!! I swing and swing and swing but never hit the ball. There are NO instructions or guidelines to help me.... the game looks good but I'm still on the first tee swinging at air and out of time...........again!!!
Review by Marvalena10 months ago
.Great game to play but very frustrating when players ranked low are able to hit shots that should be impossible to hit. Some scores are so low that in a 9 hole round you would have to eagle at least 3 holes and birdie the rest. I have bought top clubs and there is no way to score that low. Not realistic.
Review by Rupama10 months ago
Um, can I have my 300 dollars back please. Thank you. Other guys seemed to be able to play incredibly well. I was never able to, even when I spent a good amount of money on it. I had the best equipment money could buy and was getting beat by guys with starter clubs. It's kind of fun. If your able to really get the nack you'll enjoy. I never did
Review by Benteffour10 months ago
Been playing WGT for half a year because Tiger Woods Golf is gone (boo). Really love and loved that game. This app has great courses, good response, not great (glitches, especially mid swing) and fun playability. Here's a HUGE flaw and I do not think it is an oversight. The more I play, it exponentially gets more difficult. I have uber upgrades, I have purchased good clubs and can play par or better. So why am I losing 50% of my matches (which nobody wants or enjoys). I can hit a ball 3 feet from the hole and my opponenet hits 2 feet from the hole. All the time. The frequency of miraculous shots is not only unrealistic and impossible, there is no ring of truth or enjoyability to game play. I am an 85th level master. I get grouped with a legend and they hit a 225 yard shot 1 foot from the hole with half a second shot assessment time. Impossible. Frustrating. Then you group me with a hack (who should be a WGT rookie) and they do the same because they were high level and started over as a hack because they were frustrated. Wake up! You have a great app but the design flaws are so many years behind Tiger Woods Golf it is sickening. I play and end up angry. Playing a golf app should be peaceful, fun, competitive, etc...not frustrating, infuriating and futile. I am proud of my skill level on the game. Why would I now be content winning 4 or 5 out of 10 games. Please change this. Group players more judiciously and monitor results. Make adjustments on the results, not the groupings. Keep people's win status high especially as they improve, just like real life. The better pros get, the more they win statistically. The competition gets more stiff but so do they. Hope you figure it oit before another app does. I enjoy your game but I will not continue like this and I do not want to start over as a hack which should
not be an advantage BTW. If it does not change, I would rather take my free time writing commentary like this all over the internet and encouraging others to do as well. This is how frustrated I and thousands of others are (as I read online). Please act soon.

Ive been playing at least 7 or 8 yrs. and I've never had any of that stuff y'all are writing about happen. I'm not one of 'em, but you are playing against guys that put a lot, a lot of work into that game because they can. And they do. Keep improving, keep coming back and maybe one day you can beat 'em! The other $#*! y'all gripe about is just whining.!
Review by Jbaby1 year ago
For me it worked well at least first few months, more recently some frustrating things
+ it is challenging to become better at it.
+ the play and adjusting for shots is initially very realistic (I play real golf since decades) - the only difference is that in real life you are less consistent than hitting a mouse button at the right moment.
+ non-consistent / inconsistent "hit meter", odd effects of wind, and unexpected shot outcomes is programmed into it, especially for lower level players and the initial free and cheaper less good equipment/clubs - this is like real life - sometimes a shot goes wrong or unexpectedly wrong/different
+ You can choose whether to spend cash or do things like online surveys to get credits, or by winning head-to-head challenge games for credits vs other players (tricky if you are not yet good of course). You need Credits to get better clubs (longer driver/woods; irons and wedges that spin the ball so it stops when landing on the green; putter that more consistently hits the putts...)
A MINUS point is that it seems you can somehow annoy wgt in such a way that they lock or disable your account without warning or real proper explanation, meaning have to start from beginning again ! A friend who was scoring good (too good?) from day1 and for some time, then suddenly account was disabled, explanation was automated gobbledygook.
Similarly, a close family member was only in for less than 2 weeks, then had account banned and locked out, accused of being a double account ("multi-accounts") presumably due to logging in through the same laptop/wifi address as another family member (at different times as they were using the same d. laptop !).
It has been said elsewhere in other reviews that members of same family or friends get accounts locked on basis of assumed "double account", when they have entered with different devices, even simultaneously into same game, through same wifi which will be the case for a family or friends at the same place. If that is true it is understandably frustrating...
Update, MINUS POINTS. It is stated by others in wgt that game gets very frustrating as you become good / really good.
Initially, other than very occasional "hyper-speed meter jumping" & occasional strange/odd erratic shot outcomes, had not yet seen that myself. However as I have got better, with higher rating (lower average), more erratic things are appearing such as shots strangely veering sideways against the wind direction landing the ball in the rough, especially when playing in tournament / competitions. Also odd putts swerving off uphill just before going in. Some have elsewhere suggested this is the game's clever algorithms / programming designed to take credits off you and also to make you need to spend on better equipment just to stand still, otherwise the fun evaporates.
...See review from michael k. "fraud!" & the comments under there from Jim B. etc.
