Excerpt: If I ran Sony Computer Entertainment I'd have done the same. One of the most popular and simple games included in Wii Sports is Bowling. It's just a perfect fit for the Wii's motion controller and is something everyone can play.
Excerpt: High Velocity Bowling does an okay job of conveying that "bowlarama" feel during the big tournaments where you are on just one of many lanes and each of the more private two-lane locations has a very unique feel, but the overall presentation as far as graphics are concerned, feels very last...
Excerpt: Bowling is a great sport. The need to figure out how to make the ball move by adjusting your body's movement is a great way to learn about how ones body can bend and flex. High Velocity Bowling is one of the better games that pull this sport into the video game realm.
Excerpt: High Velocity Bowling was Sony’s attempt to make a bowling game for the PS Move. They got some things right. They got some things wrong. We are all here to sing that little song. The controls and bowling action in this PS3 game is fantastic.
Conclusion: High Velocity Bowling is a fun and engaging experience that the whole family can enjoy. Team Ramrod has built a solid game; recreating the bowling experience for home consoles in a way that is very much welcomed.
Conclusion: Don't expect HVB to have the same effect on your social gatherings as a copy of Wii Sports -- but if you're looking for a solid bowling game with some nice features thrown in, well, you've found it.
