Summary: As with my review of PBA Pro Bowling, this game also does not pick up on your bowling motion. My wife throws a backup ball (curves backward) in real life and Wii Sports picks up on that so the bowling is pretty realistic. This game does not. Add in the annoying cut scenes, phrases, and inability to see what your character is doing while bowling and you have another dead loser from the bowling industry. If you like to bowl, stick with Wii Sports.
Summary: the players stand in your way when you line up your shot, you have less control with your throw, its more a game of chance... we went back to the game we got with our wii. it is much better, we wanted to create and name our own players like on the football games so we know the tech exsist, maybe even design our bowling balls too; this game is very limited and has caused me to not try buying another, until nintendo respects bowlers as much as football players dont buy...
Summary: I picked this game up in the 'bargain bin' for $[...] and figured even it was mediocre, it would be worth the price. I was wrong. The game is truly one of the video games I've ever played. The graphics are fair, but the gameplay and sound are horrid. The characters repeat the same lines over and over again after each roll. It gets to the point that you have to turn the sound off. The bowling game that comes with 'Wii Sports' is much better than this game.
Summary: When I first bought the Wii, I purchased an additional handful of games to go along with it. AMF Bowling Pinbusters was one of the those games. It was moderately priced, and so I figured that it would make a nice diversion from time to time. I set the Wii up, popped in Wii Sports which came with the console and played the bowling game which comes with it. I liked it, a lot. I then switched over to play AMF Bowling Pinbusters and tried playing that.
Summary: Given the different opinions posted on this game I'd recommend that you rent it before you buy it; however, in my opinion, the controls on this game are awful. The motion sensing is marginal and balls will just fly off into the gutter for no reason. The physics of rolling the ball are nothing like Wii sports bowling or the other bowling game currently on the market (which I tried after this one and like).
Summary: AMF should have tried this game before putting their name on it. This game has absolutely no sense of the physics of bowling or the position of the controller. My family has played this game one time and will never put it in the Wii again. It's that bad - really. When you click the B button to begin your swing, the camera zooms out of the character a little before beginning the motion of the swing.
Summary: This game is not worth 20 dollars. Save your money and stick with the original WiiSports bowling... it is 100% better than this game was. Fuzzy picture, poor reaction for spin, horrible viewpoint for approach, poor choice of characters no variety... extremely dissapointing.
Summary: Very dissappointed with this bowling game. No option for right or left hand. Sound don't match up with what is going on. Graphics ok but nothing spectacular. Sure wasted noney on this one!! Rent it first!!!
