Tiger Woods 11 for Wii to feature ‘True View’ first person golf shots

Oh boy, I love where EA Sports is going with this. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, due out in June, will feature something called “True View,” which allows you to hit your in-game golf shots from a real-life, top-down point of view. When coupled with the Wii MotionPlus accessory, “It works extremely well,” according to IGN.

Here’s more:

The game features a mode called “True View” that lets you swing through the eyes of your golfer. Activate this mode and point the Wii remote downwards, and the game camera will whisk to the perspective of your character. As you look down at your ball, you aim at the “zero point” on the ground to drive, chip or putt using the incredible accuracy of the Wii MotionPlus-enhanced Wii remote. You can see the subtle movements represented on screen as your club follows all the rocking and twisting you’re giving your “club.”

You can play the old fashioned way as well but if you’re a golfer in real life, it’s probably going to be hard to resist using the True View control scheme. I’m already thinking of ways to just lay my TV flat down on the floor. Might as well go all the way, right?
