This game isn't as bad as the reviews say. Everyone says that the control is off well, my average bowl speed was 13 to 15.4 with a high of 18.6 which is a pritty good hit! The game is a little reputive but over all i think its about a 7.The speed comes from the accuracy of the throw....not the power of your swing. If you release at the right time....the throw will be successfull :)

If you're an avid bowler or even someone who seriously enjoys heading to the local Rock'n'Bowl, this game is for you. If you're neither of above, then you'll probably not like this very much
It took me a bit to get used to the controls. If you get it from Gamefly, the learning curve is a bit steep without the directions. I definitely recommend having a good couple of practice games before you start your career.
The controls themselves are pretty easy to figure out. Using the main button to progress through your motions, then the trigger and your arm swing to propel the ball. After that, you will be able to fiddle with the rotation to work your curves. You can get left and right spin pretty easily with a flick of the wrist.
Those are the easy part. The speed with which you throw the ball seemed to me to be pretty inconsistent with how quickly I moved my arm. And a warning... if you're like me and like to give it a GOOD swing, you WILL be sore for a few days after playing this one :)
As I said, it's a good game if you're the bowling type. Definitely don't recommend this if you're looking for a simple and quick pick up game. Might want to find Mario Bowling or some such on the Wii.
