Summary: This could have been a good game, but the developers dropped the ball with the game mechanics. Instead of putting so much effort into the graphics...they should have included a better interface to use. A big disappointment.
Summary: First thing that comes to mind when describing this game are the outstanding physics of the pin and ball actions. It's basically as good as real life and pins can bounce off the side walls and even off of the back wall of the pit. Sometimes, the pins can bounce off of the back wall and shoot back out into the lane, just like in real life.
Summary: This game is surprisingly a lot more fun than i thought it would be. I heard the wii version of this game is super lame but i haven't played it. I am a serious bowler myself with a current usbc league average of 190 with a high game of 279. So this helps my bowling fix when I am not playing Wii Bowling.

Summary: I have tried several bowling games for the PC and this one for the PSP is among the best. The physics, realism, sound and graphics of Brunswick Pro Bowling are superb! Other reviewers have complained about the "accuracy" and "speed" control scheme used on the PSP. Yes, it takes a little getting use to, but once you understand how the analog nub control works to swing the ball and set the speed, no problem. It only adds a dimension of eye hand coordination to the game.
Summary: This is for my daughter's PSP. I haven't been able to try it yet, as she has hogged it for days. She has stopped playing her other games and has played this one exclusively. I even got blamed yesterday for making her lose a tournament by talking to her. So I guess I'd have to say its great, but addictive.
Summary: O.K., this isn't your typical video game. But, Brunswick Pro Bowling is a great game when you just want to chill. The pace of the game is wonderful and the challenge to not only beat your opponent, but top your own high score makes the game a lot of fun and keeps the replay value high. Replay value is also kept high by the variations of bowling styles there are to master. Learning to consistently control the hook with regard to lane conditions adds to the fun.
If you played the original on Playstation, you plaed the best version

Summary: There's nothing worse than looking forward to a game release 7-8 years in the making and have end up worse than the original. The accuracy/power control makes no sense and it's hard to vary speed with any consistency. Carry is a total mystery, there's no rhyme or reason. Graphics aren't any better and there is no variance in styles. They've taken the pros off of the game. Career mode takes forever. I've been playing to two weeks and I'm still stuck in league play.
