|Brunswick Pro Bowling Review | Features|
Even after seeing the new Brunswick Pro bowling for the Playstation 3 version which is supposed to re create the experience that WII created with its motion controller (which sadly it doesn’t), we are not at all convinced that this is one of the best bowling games ever and on a even silly note, Move nearly sucks in this motion controlled gaming that doesn’t have any control at all. You have to nearly keep the Move pointed straight at the Camera and even when you miss it for a second, the animation skips in bowling and you will be required to redo it all again.
The motion controlled Brunswick Pro bowling is just a passable re-creation of what the Wii had and if you can skip the PS3’s so called Move then you might be able to just pass through with this. Even after four years, the Wii version of the game remains unbeatable. All you have to start off is to push a button to start the bowling and then time your swing motion in coincidence with the animation shown on screen. Bad throws occur only when you miss to correspond with your bowler on screen. The best thing about Brunswick Pro Bowling is that Move is an optional form of controller and you can easily play with it using the normal controller anyway.
Modes are plenty but in a way all of them are the same offering just enough amount of fun and variety so that you don’t get bored all the time. If you can practice to use your regular controller, then you would surely enjoy this game with a friend or two either online or locally. Online gaming of the bowling is fun as it doesn’t happen turn based but both of you play simultaneously with a timer on the top. If one result has been posted earlier, then you will be see your partner’s scorecard on the top.
The Spare Challenge mode is also fun with friends which has 10 different spare leaves and supposed to converted in as few attempts as possible. You will start your challenge as an amateur bowler with no face but will soon grown on to become a top player by competing in 20 different leagues, 20 different tournaments, and against 20 different rivals in one on one challenge. Despite more than 60 different areas and opponents to explore, you may feel exhausted as somehow the game doesn’t captivate that much.
