Brunswick Pro Bowling review

  • Brunswick license intact
  • Realizing actual bowling is more fun
  • Wii Sports in comparison
  • Controls are screwy
  • Realizing you're playing the anti-fun
  • Who cares about the Brunswick license?

Compounding the anti-fun mentality of gear-enhanced skill is a swing scheme nabbed from Wii Sports but applied with all the finesse of an industrial ball polisher - a pro bowler forced to use a child's rolling ramp, if you will. Brunswick's bowlers hail from the school of animatronic sportsman that populated Tiger Woods 07 - fixed swing animation no matter what the input - making it hard to calibrate your own movements with those on screen.

With Wii Sports's deft entertainment gracing us for free, there's simply no need for the hassle of Brunswick.
