But things were moving slowly and the game had a tight deadline. So he looked at the various other engines EA was using for games at the time to find techniques that could be reused.And strangely enough, he has the latest tiger woods The golf game had a perfect engine.

Lord of the Ring A huge area and a castle or something on the edge, like a fortress. what is such? tiger woods! ’ Scofield explains:and we tiger woods engine and it Lord of the Ring engine. “
