    OK isn't that title in a song somewhere? Anyways, I rented Tiger Woods 2009 over the weekend. I think I'll definitely pick it up used as soon as I can find it.

    I've played all of the Tiger Woods series, going back to 2005 and possibly earlier. Each version improves the graphics quality and provides more features. The 2009 edition offers more game types. My husband and I played the Head-to-Head EA Sports mode that would let the winner of each round take a club out of their opponents bag. You can't take their putter but you can cripple them if you keep wining by removing their drivers or their wedges.

    A fun feature 2009 has is the Photo Game Face. Using your Xbox Live Vision Cam, you can take a photo of your front and side profile face. After you take the photo, you match up the dots to the computer animated profile next to yours. Then, you let the Xbox render a CGI of you. My person came out looking a little manly but it was hilarious. I need to tweak my person so I can look less scary. The rendering took about 10 minutes but it was worth it. Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of the stalker that it created as "me" but when I'm done tweaking it, I'll show you. As the photo renders, the status bar tells you what it's doing. Near the 10 minute mark, it starts asking you to stop looking at the screen and go make a sandwich. It was quite entertaining

    I haven't bought the game yet, I just rent it whenever my husband wants to throw down. I tried playing 1 sports game (NCAA 2009) online w/Puck Bunnie but we could never connect.

    I LOVE Tiger Woods golf games, but like many other sports titles, it's hard to know what year I should drop $60 and get into a game that will soon be worth $10 next year, haha. The most recent one I tried was Tiger Woods 09 for the PSP, which was okay, but the loading time was unbearable.

    The Game Face stuff for the Xbox 360 sounds sweet and yet still gets ya to splurge for the Xbox Live Vision Cam. Thanks Microsoft Laughing

    Finally, I assume you can play with friends over XBL. How does this functionality feel and how often are you hitting the links with friends?
