the ones they show on G4 tv for Collin's College? Be a game designer and all that? Well, this game is so bad that even a Collin's graduate would be embarrassed to have his/her name attached. The character design is worse than goldeneye on the N64. The "soundtrack" is maddening. It made me want to hurt little bunnies, it was so stupid and repetitive. The game play is what really lacked. In order to throw a hook ball anywhere near the pocket, you must have near perfect accuracy 3 click "power/accuracy" meter. It wouldn't be too bad if you didn't need to set considerably high ball speed to keep the ball from hooking mid lane. But alas, slow speed will cause even the lightest hooked ball to roll way too soon, often in the gutter. So, now you have too much speed to really have any hope of a skilfully timed throw, so you just try to get lucky. Once you miss the accuracy meter, your ball will either slide into the right (left for lefties) gutter, or over hook. So eventually you learn to play straight up the middle with no hook and slow to moderate ball speed. With a three click system. Whee. Absolutely pointless. I hate this game. I have never hated a game before. I believe it is the absolute worst game ever created.

If you were a fan of 10 Pin Alley on the Playstation then you will like this one. The gameplay is very similar, and there really isn't much else to it...bowling.

I love to bowl, was looking foward to this, man i was disappointed. If you want a good bowling game for the ps 2 get strike force bowling. much better. This had good control aspects, but the game it self was just no good. I mean it was on a Blue or purple bottom disc, i thought they stopped with that garbage. oh well
