The levels are colorful; A small level of customization;
Very boring and repetitive, adds nothing new; Irritating music and voices; Bad quality animation and textures;

While Gutterball 2 claims to be "The most realistic 3D bowling game", I would beg to differ and here are the reasons:

1) The graphics

I have seen Flash games that have better graphics than this game. While the color pallet is quite impressive, the textures and animations are mediocre at best.

A good thing about this game is the selection of levels, which look great, but after 3 or 4 matches you will grow tired of them (and they are only 5!)

Also, you can customize your bowling ball by adding a picture and some RPG-like attributes, but it's not that big of a deal.

2) The controls

The controls are decent, but it seems quite far fetched to steer the ball in any direction after it was launched. Also, this makes the game very easy, especially when you think that the only objective is to stay on track and hit the pins - as if it wasn't easy anyway!

3) Sounds

I strongly recommend you mute the game IF you decide to play it. The annoying music is just a corny loop that repeats itself again, and again, and again... Also, the voice-acting (if you can call it so) is downright outrageous. You only get to hear this kind of voice in bad cartoons.


Overall, if you really don't have anything to spend your money and time on, go for this game. It will keep you entertained for 30 minutes or so.
