So what would you expext from a bowling game?
Surely, the first, and the most important - the realism. To tell the truth, this game has nothing in common with realism. Yes, I understand that this game intends to be funny and exciting, but "steering the ball"?! Are you serious? It's a nonsense, then just don't call this game bowling, name it anything else but not bowling. I played this game with my brother and both of us have found this game awfully repetitive and easy. What's the difference that there are 5 tracks and a lot of ball colors if the gameplay is just the same? Moreover, it's just too easy. My brother scored strike just EACH time he played, is this normal for bowling game? I guess, it's not.
This point is not as bad as previous. Graphics aren't bad (for the time it was published). 3d models and stages are nice and stylish. On the other hand, the main menu is a little bit messy, it took a while for me to find out how to start the game.
3.Music and sounds:
Also very contradictive point( as almost everything in this game). While sounds are good and commentators are funny and interesting to listen to, the music is just awfully repetitive and bad. After around 1 hour of playing this game, I just turned the music off, it was just impossible to listen this melody for a few more minutes.
Maybe, after reading this you thoght that this game is totally awfull. Don't get me wrong, this game isn't VERY bad, maybe you'll even like it. But for me, as for big fan of bowling, this game failed all my expactations about it.


Poor arcade, could be fun for few hours maximum, has very little in common with some real bowling. A total disappointment for me.
