The PGA Tour 2K23 video game, released on various media a little over a month ago, will once again satisfy regular customers and those less accustomed to controls and greens. Its predecessor, PGA Tour 2K21, released two years earlier, had already convinced golfers and players that this new version for 2023 should also meet their expectations!
The game developed by HB Studios and published by 2K Games has not revolutionized the game, but this version is still more successful. Lower the control stick for the backswing, raise it for the downswing and find the right rhythm for the perfect shot.
PGA Tour 2K23, features
The realism of version 21 remains, it has even been improved with a swing counter that now rotates around the instrument. A subtle development that allows you to focus on the golfer and the swing.
The training room is a great place to master it. Once you’ve mastered your swing, take on the PGA Tour in MyCareer mode. Once you’ve created a player, you can define an “archetype” that defines your overall style, and also start drawing paths in the skill tree.
Then you’re ready to conquer the FedEx Cup by climbing the ladder one at a time: QSchool and then the Korn Ferry Tour. PGA Tour 2K23 includes many licensed tournaments (we note the absence of major tournaments) that will give you a real immersion in the American competition.
You also have to manage the interest of sponsors who offer you many outfits and equipment, but also competitions between the best players in the world. This new version features more than fifteen golf stars, including several women.
Famous players such as Tiger Woods, Jon Rahm or Lydia Ko are also playable, especially against your friends in exhibition mode. But you especially want to challenge your loved ones in the new Topgolf space. With a true-to-life replica of the Topgolf Las Vegas facility, you can aim for targets and try for high scores.
As in the latest version, you slip into the shoes of the best golf architects. Course Designer allows you to plot the course of your dreams and share it with the community. Some have already reconstructed Augusta and many other legendary courses.
If the game may seem a bit complicated at first glance, you will eventually get the hang of it quite quickly. Above all, it adapts to the difficulty of the courses, the opponents or the precision of the swing. So everyone finds their own joy and suitable level of difficulty.
