Summary: I bought this game for my Mom who really likes bowling games on the Wii. She plays the Wii Sports Bowling Game and loves it so she wanted to buy the Brunswick one. She likes the Brunswick game less than Wii Sports Bowling because she can't figure out how to move the person in front of the pins. It seems like this game is a little harder to manuever than the other one.
Summary: While it is a nice game I do not think the actual bowling really works like real bowling from the controller. Your better off just sitting in place and doing minimalmovments and throwing straight shots. amost any attempt to hook the ball causes the ball to hook right off the lane.
Summary: Brunswick bowling The Interface for Brunswick Pro Bowling is a bit different than Wii Sports Bowling. At first, you will be thrown off by the slow backswing of your bowler, but if you disregard it, and throw the ball like you normally would, things will be just fine. After all, bowling is about making the same throw every time, and adjusting where you stand, not adjusting your throw, per se.
Summary: I've been bowling for years and was yearning for something with a little more realism than the Wii Sports version of bowling (which I do enjoy playing). My thoughts as I played this for the first time: "Why are all of the characters for the quick play mode so fugly?" "Why is there a several second delay between my movement and the character's?" "Why isn't there a multiplayer career mode?" "Does the house ball have to be so incredibly crappy?!?
3.5 stars...Mesh Wii Sports Bowling with this and it would be better!

Summary: If only I could mesh Wii Sports Bowling with this version, I'd be happy. Wii Sports bowling is weak on graphics while the Brunswick bowling is great on graphics. I felt like I was in a real bowling alley, throwing my hook ball down the lane. I'm an avid bowler, so it was nice to have a realistic look and feel to the bowling experience.
If you have the patience to learn to control the game then it can be fun

Excerpt: After playing Wii sports bowling, and loving the intuitive realistic feel, when Brunswick pro bowling came out I was excited. A game fully dedicated to bowling, but to a much deeper level on the same format must be great, right? Well yes and no, the graphics are superb with different lanes and ball graphics and the actual style of the game is enjoyable, either play a quick game with up to four players and play in real-life Brunswick locations, such as San Francisco,...
Excerpt: "The idea behind this game is to bowl just like in the lanes at the local bowling alley however it is more like playing skittles in the local street alley. The controls are poor to say the least how ever the game is not all bad after u get used to the controls it can be a fun game to play with family members The graphics are nice and the game runs smooth and this could be one of them games where with a few careful tweaks by the designers could turn ...
Excerpt: "Having enjoyed Wii sports bowling immensely, I decided to go "one up" and buy a specialist bowling game for my Wii. This is a typical case of "good in principle, bad in practise". They could have done so much more with this game but have sold themselves short on a greatr many levels. It does reveal certain dimensions to bowling I'd not previously thought of, everything from the curve (hook) on the ball to the oil distribution on the lane. Player ...
