I bought this game for my wife, as she expressed an interest in getting something that could replicate the old Wii Sports/Sports Resort bowling game. We still have the Wii, and have recently re-installed it downstairs with some better connections - so we've actually been playing those bowling games again. They were, and they remain, fun and requiring an element of skill.
If you're hoping that this game will re-ignite that spark of fun, forget it. The bowling game is rubbish. Rather than actually getting to 'bowl' your ball as you wish, you are forced into a timed release by an arrow which moves from side-to-side twice, releasing your ball if you don't do so first. The only way to get a strike is to hit the very first pin - but the weird part of this game is that once your ball is released, you are then expected to 'steer' the bowling ball with the joystick. Once you score over 150 points in a single game, you unlock motion controls. So now it should start to get better right? Wrong!
The motion controls are even worse. You bowl - the ball flies off to the edge, and you start frantically waving around your controller to try and get the ball steering back to the centre. It is so pants that you'll truly wish you'd not bothered.
The only half decent games which had us playing quite a few times were the baseball game where you just repeatedly try to knock balls out of the ground, and the hoopla game - which was actually quite good fun.
The very worst games on here were those shooting games where you had to control a crosshair with the joystick, and shoot targets. It's a dreadful method of control - but then again, I've never been a fan of that sort of shoot-em-up game.
The final thing I will say about this game is don't bother reading the instructions. It often describes how you need to control the timing of the action button to fire things nearer or farther away. It's a load of nonsense. On those games, my five year old son just bashes the buttons and seems to beat us every time. In fact the only games where he was at a significant disadvantage to us were the crosshair shooters.
Frustrating nonsense. Avoid and get the Nintendo Wii back out.
