Let me preface this by saying that I am a bowler IRL and average 230 so when Brunswick stated how great and realistic this game was, I was excited regardless of the terrible reviews I had read.
The reviews were right. This game is clunky and responded terribly (although better with a six-axis than the move which was almost laughable). The rotation and hook amount on the ball seems nearly random, the speed is COMPLETELY random (especially with the move) and it makes for a video game experience that is far more frustrating than enjoyable.
Like I said in the title, however... If you are not a real life bowler and don't have all that much real basis for comparison, it's possible the game would be marginally more fun to get into, but I just could not.
