Kids might like it, but older players will find it boring.

Summary: The first thing that puzzled me about this was it uses the direction pad and buttons, and doesn't utilize the touch pad at all. Selecting how far left or right to stand and pressing a button once to start your power meter and then press it again at the level of power you want, is just really boring for a ten pin bowling game. The other thing is the amount of bowls, you bowl I think 5 frames, and that is the game. What is that about?
This is the worst bowling game I have ever played!

Summary: This game is really awful. I hate the music-but that can be turned off, thank goodness. But the game itself is utterly useless. I have never played such terrible bowling in my life. Every single shot i made the stupid computerized player always went past the line and faulted it, no matter if i bowled it soft or hard, fast or slow, left or right, he just slipped past the line and scored absolutely nothing. I am never playing this game again.
Summary: My kids like this game because they like bowling. It is ok but seems to lack a bit of realism like that found in Brunswick Bowling for the PS2 (although you can learn to beat that game). Pin physics and ball physics could be better, however, there is enough variety in the features to keep one amused now and then.
Summary: i think this game is pretty fun. way way way better than the wii version a lot of characters and lanes to unlock. graphcis are actually very good for the ds. i hope more people buy it so i can find players on wifi. i do also wished it used the stylus tho.
Summary: I'm a bowling game junkie and I enjoy this game very much. I play it on downtime everywhere - thanks to the DS. The variety of characters and lanes are very fun, and give it a jump on the classic lanes of average games. The game includes an element called "Psyche Factor", which allows you to build up psyche points and use them on opponents. When you have high points in the Psyche meter, it can trigger special moves that almost always end in a strike.
Summary: as a huge fan of the bowling game in 'club house games', i was very excited and eagerly awaited the release date of this game. it HAD to be good -- well it is not! it makes zero use of the stylus, you aim with the D-pad and press A using an archaic power meter to throw the ball down the lane. what a total disappointment! clubhouse games is FAR better, dont waste your time with this one!
