For a video game connoisseur such as myself, I find it strange when I’ve never heard of a game. I loved the bowling mini-game in both Wii Sports games, but I rented this one.
The game features basic bare-bones modes with a few characters and stages but that’s about it. The bowling part is done in a more Hot Shots Golf fashion. You have a power bar, and you must time it right for your ball to roll done the lane properly.
It’s not that hard to get the hang of, but after mastering it you’re left in sheer boredom. It’s kinda like playing Dance Dance Revolution with the D-pad instead of the Dance Mat. Yeah you’re technically playing a video game and having “fun” but there is just something missing. Maybe I’m spoiled by something like Wii Bowling, but combine that with bad production values, mediocre graphics, and boring music and you wouldn’t be thrilled either.
Score: 3 out of 10
