Summary: Most sports games have two modes--a league or tournament mode where your team or player competes against CPU or online players, and a multi-player mode for one-on-one action. Sadly, Brunswick Pro Bowling does not allow you to use Mii players, or for that matter, saved bowlers in multi-player mode. Instead, you must choose between pre-configured players and there is no way to save your player for future one-on-one games, nor is there a way to access your Mii characters.
Summary: This game will not let you set up a bowler with your name and when you try to play, it goes too slow when rolling the ball and only bowls the way the bowler that you choose throws his or her ball. Not a good game at all.
Summary: I just got to put this one in the Wii to play and for one thing the instructions that came with it are all in French. And the second is that we can not get the game to play at all. Having more fun with the sport disc that came with our Wii.
Summary: I love the bowling game that comes with Wii Sports so I was expecting this game to be something like that, but with more realistic characters, bowling alleys and more control over the ball. The graphics are ok, there are several different alleys, but the characters which do look real, don't move very fluidly. It isn't real sharp either as I'm accustomed to with other Wii games. The control over the ball is nothing like in Wii Sports.
Summary: I waited and waited for this game to be released. At first, it seemed much better than Wii Sports Bowling, but the fun soon wore off. Multiplayer mode sometimes works, and sometimes does not. Half the time it makes you use the same remote for 2 players. I've found that cancelling out of the game and starting over will allow 2 remotes to be used with 2 players. I think it may have something to do with your choice of players.
Summary: The negative reviews here are correct: this is a very disappointing game. I'm glad I only rented it so I'm only out eight bucks instead of forty. The player has too little control over the game play: the ball seems to roll pretty much the same no matter what you do with the Wiimote. Also there is an annoying delay in the response time of the virtual bowler on the screen, which is not present in the Wii Sports version.
Summary: Definitely not as much fun as wii sports bowling, but definitely more serious. I don't want to compare to two games too much but since I absolutely love wii sports bowling and it comes with the wii, the comparison is unavoidable. The good: Nice graphics, not the best but passable for the wii. The ability to customize your character is very nice, you can also purchase things for them as you get more money by winning games. The character movements are pretty good.
Summary: I will agree that the basics of this game are good. The bowling is somewhat realistic and the career mode is interesting. But What is with the limited character creation, the Mii's on sports bowling look more like their person. What happened to Handicap in league games? What happened to realistic gaming, why does my player always bowl first? And what about the format of bowling two frames at a time ala the pros on TV?
Excerpt: I write this review having just scored eight, yes eight strikes in a row on Wii Sports bowling so I like to think I am somewhat of a pro. We have had this bowling game for a number of years now and I was excited when I first got it as bowling is one of my favourite games from the Wii Sports game but unfortunately I didn't think this bowling game was as good as it should be and was just a bit of an extension of the Wii Sports game and nothing too different from what has...
