Brunswick Pro Bowling review

A bowling turkey: three strikes and it's out


  • 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?

Oct 24, 2007

Living in fizzy drink-enameled dives, played in slippers held together by fungal infections and favouring whooping theatrics over polite applause, bowling is the social slob of the sporting world. This makes capturing it in game form oh-so-very difficult and it certainly isn't made any easier if, like Brunswick here, you try to do so with anything other than a goofy grin on your face. But whereas Wii Sports presented flighty six-pounder fun, this struggles under the heavy-handed brunt of a clunky 16-pound license.
